Wedding Planning, Stress And Cats That Bite


I'm hesitant to do another post about the stress and anxiety I've been feeling this week because The Murph might take more pics of me lounging by the pool or napping on the couch.  I have tried to explain that sometimes I can't put a finger on why I feel anxiety.  It seems to me like just the way the earth is tilting now that we are approaching Autumn and the sun is lower in the sky makes me somewhat anxious in a weird sort of way.  Even though I do LOVE this time of the year.

Anxiety sometimes has no easily explained reason for being.  Apparently.

The stress I am feeling comes from dealing with the last minute details on our upcoming wedding.  That isn't going away until the details get worked out.   I am working on it.  My vows are written.  I've been working on them off and on for over a month.

The programs are written out and just need to be sent to the printer.  That has been the biggest stress for me.  I just wanted to write it out and pick out a program at the same place we got the invitations and say here, put this information in that program format.    Easy!

The Murph doesn't want to do it that way since it costs more money, but it's either spend more money or more of my time trying to figure it all out and get a program together that looks decent.  I don't have a program on my computer that will easily do that.  At this point, I don't really care anymore.  I'm not stressing about it.

It seems that the cats, especially Phantom, has picked up on my stress.  He has been extremely bad.  Worse than usual.  He tries to attack Ed every chance he gets.  He goes after Cadence as well, if he gets too close.  When all else fails, Phantom bites me.   Sneak bites on my shins.  It hurts!


Biting is not good.  He should know better than to bite a stressed out female.  This cat has no fear.


 With all that's going on, most of it entirely in my mind, I couldn't pass these babies up last time we were at Target.  I love these cute little pumpkins that taste like candy corn, only cuter.


 I felt better immediately after consuming half the container.  I am not even going to let the fact that mineral oil is one of the ingredients ruin the experience for me.  See how cute they are?


The jewelry I am wearing in the wedding is here.  They were all packed up in cute little boxes from Tejani.



They are very pretty and very sparkly and I am very excited about wearing them.

The beverage napkins for the reception have come in as well.   Things are coming along just fine.  I am going to take a deep breath and enjoy life.

I've never tried any, but anxiety meds would probably help.  After I've seen how much better The Boy is doing on them, I have considered taking some myself!  The Murph would probably agree!  Today all he could offer to make me feel better was an acai berry smoothie.  It helped!

    1. Yes it sucks! Those little teeth are just like needles. Great way to describe them. Claws and needles!

  2. I can honestly say that no one in my family has owned a cat. But my wife owned many while she was growing up. And it's good to hear that all the little details are being worked out. Even if you're pulling your hair out, it'll be worth it in the end.

    1. Cats are GREAT! You should get one. Really!

      Seriously though, I'm sure if you did get a cat it would be much better behaved than mine.

  3. I don't think you should read the ingredients of things that taste good. Why ruin the experience?

    I'm glad all your wedding plans are coming together. Getting married is exciting but, it is stressful too.

    1. You're right, I shouldn't have read the ingredients! It didn't stop me from eating all of them.

  4. Xanax. :)
    I was tempted to add those little pumpkins to my next grocery store trip but the mineral oil is a bit off-putting. (I admit to loving candy corns, though...corn syrup and artificial coloring be damned! lol)

    1. I always buy them this time of the year. It's a tradition! And it's worth the mineral oil.

      Xanax? Hmmmmm..... wonder how much more loopy that would make me?

  6. I doubt it would make you loopy. Just calm. Unfortunately I've heard it's addictive so better to take it "as needed".

    1. I don't need any addictive anxiety meds so i won't get them unless I really, really need them.
