I worked through Wednesday of the week and looking back I really should have taken Wednesday off too. I had no idea JUST how much was still left to do. On a funny note, my mom was off too and she said she thought we were just going to relax on that Thursday and do the running around Friday. I sure fooled her. We didn't stop to eat barely, ha!
And as if I didn't have enough things going on in my life at the moment, I knew the dogs needed to go to the vet for some baths. Well, while there Roxie got some news. She needed to be on a new medication. Great, there went another $120.00 out the window. And I had to rely on my parents to start giving her this new medicine while I was away on my honeymoon. I felt bad for that, but doctor's orders!
So, back on track, Thursday was completely NUTS running around trying to get things sorted into piles and double checking my lists to make sure I had everything covered. Oh, and I had to leave and go to my nephew's birthday party in the meantime. Talk about needing to be more than one place at one time! But finally nightfall came and I crawled into my bed, exhausted.
Friday morning got an early start. I was up and moving things around and headed to the nail salon by 9:00 AM. Mom and I waited to get that done until last thing because we both knew we were going to be moving boxes, etc. and didn't want to risk breaking a new nail! *Gasp!*
Then it was time for more running around, however, my maid of honor and her husband pulled into town and really calmed me down. I admit, I was losing my cool at this point. So with Hillary, Jeff, and Cassie's help, we pulled off getting all there was left to do, and made it to the hotel just in time.
Now, the hotel I speak of is about ten minutes away from our wedding venue, but it was the closest (decent) place to get dressed for me that morning of, so I decided to spend the night there since I was starting hair and make-up at 7:00 AM. I was grateful to have the Belmont Hotel, for sure.
Then it was time for the rehearsal... Coming in Part Two.
