hey dancy- this one's right back atcha :)
to a normal person, this may look like a normal card section at CVS. but to a bride-to-be with a week to go, it's an emotional basketcase trap.
you know what those are, right? they sneak up on you and all the sudden you're a wreck. you might hear a cute little innocent song on the radio and - it's over, you lost it. or, oh, look at the cute little puppy dog - that reminds you of your childhood pet? - you lose it. emotional basketcase traps can come in many forms so be careful. oh and most importantly - do. not. go. on. youtube. there's too many risks on there - surprise proposal videos, wedding compilation videos... even funny videos seem sentimental.
so today i wasn't cautious and i fell right in the trap. my train of thought went like this: reading a sentimental wedding card that i thought could be a contender for pat on the big day (choking up), seeing a pair of halloween socks that reminded me of my beloved mimi (getting a little worse), remembering/realizing that she won't be there for the wedding (hiccup), looking up to stop tearing up at CVS -ha!-, texting my cousin to tell her what just happened and having her respond with "oh great, now you're going to make me cry!" -ha!- and then having a huge anxiety fit. and then realizing oh my god - i need to get out of here! haha! sound familiar?
i promise, i am not always like this! although i am a sentimental type, it usually takes more than just a glance at something to get me going. but now, in this state of mind? fugghedabowdit!
hopefully i'm not the only one going through this!
ps - bear with me as i will be posting a few times a day straight through the wedding (even on the weekend) because i have SO much going on and so many things to tell you! so stay tuned for a blogger overload in the next week :)
