I went to bed early last night, slept in the spare room to avoid being woken up by snoring, and awoke this morning feeling refreshed and much improved. And I had a lovely, productive morning at work, and went to the gym for 30 minutes on the elliptical and finished up in a fantastic mood, practically dancing back to my desk. That’s what I was looking for!
Two wedding pieces that I’d been worrying about fell into place yesterday too, which helped my stress level. I got a call back from the bridal boutique owner telling me my dress was ready for pickup, so I’m going there this afternoon. And I can’t remember if I mentioned this before, but I was waiting on a song… So my partner and I had a song that we really loved for a first dance, but it’s a prog song and it’s 7:30 long… awkwardly long. I tried shortening it in Garageband but it was terrible. So in desperation, I sent the band a message on Facebook asking if they had a 4-minute mix of the song lying around– and amazingly, they responded! They’re a young, relatively-new band and this was a first for them, and they were so tickled that we picked their song for our first dance that they offered to put something together for us. Which was fantastic! And they sent that along yesterday, and it’s perfect and I’m so happy.
So I have a day and a half left to finish up work, a day to pack up, and off I go. I don’t feel too overwhelmed now. :)
