The Melt Down!

Filed in REE , Uncategorized 4 comments

I’m a few days out, and I’ve had a total of 2 really good melt downs in the past few days…I consider myself both very laid back, and very organized, so I wasn’t ready for the melt downs AT ALL…I mean really…I started planning 14 months ago! I thought I had EVERYTHING under control….I forgot that “life happens”…

It all started when my sister called me to tell me that for some reason, her hotel reservation fell through, and the hotel was completely sold out and they didn’t even have her reservations…WHHHAAAATTT!!! So as a result, she booked a room on the OTHER SIDE OF TOWN!!! As she was telling me everything, I felt HUGE aligator tears welling up in my eyes, and my bottom lip began to poke out…She really didn’t care one way or the other, but she wanted to let me know that she was staying somewhere else…She was really laid back about it, but not me…I bawled…I mean really bawled…”Everything is going to hell!!!” I cried…”Umm…Dude…It’s not that serious…for real…”, my sister said trying to calm me down…

My poor fiance damn near ran into the living room freaking out going, “What! What! What!!” He took the phone from me and talked to my sister…He had the sense to tell her everything was alright and it didn’t matter where she stayed while I pulled myself together…I did…for like 2.9 seconds…

When I got back on the phone with my sister, she assured me that she had my back…She was going to be “ride or die” for me, and that DID relieve my nerves some UNTIL she said…”Oh…um…Did you know Mom had back surgery on Thursday?” “WWWWWWHHHHHHHAAAAAAATTTTTT”…That statement is what caused the height of the melt down…I literally fell out on to the floor…Again, my poor fiance came running into the living room, pacing back and forth talking about, “What’s going on? What? What?”

Apparently, my mother had a “little procedure” (as she calls it), but didn’t want to tell me because she didn’t want me to worry…Okay…now not only am I worried, but I’m worried AND pissed…Mom called me on Wednesday to tell me she was “going out of town” and would “be out of pocket” for a few days, and that she’d get back to me in a couple of days…Okay…She always does that, so I didn’t think anything of it, no idea she was having surgery…I cried, and cried, and cried…

My sister just listened to me bawl for a few minutes then she told me that it’s okay for things to “happen”, it’s life…In all of the planning that I did, somethings would just go wrong…The most important thing is that I had to be flexible and ready to change my focus or change directions at a moment’s notice. And even more important than that, she had my back 100%. She was committed to my week going as stress free as possible and would be here for me…

I talked to my mother yesterday…I didn’t fuss her too much (wink), I told her I was going to “spank her legs” for not telling me about the surgery. She said she just didn’t want me to worry, and I actually can appreciate that. I told her that I wanted her to rest this entire weekend and I didn’t want her to do anything. She said, “Girl, I’ve been waiting for this day for so long, you can’t sit me down! I’ve been getting my rest, but I’ve got a job to do! I’ve got to walk my baby down the aisle!”

More tears…

Oh, Ree….I’m so sorry. I don’t know what it is about wedding planning and hormones but every situation is maximized ten-fold during the weeks/days before the big day.

I’m sure you will look back at this blog and laugh :)

Just think, next week this time you will be a MRS.
