Day 44

Thursday, April 13, 2017

Temperature: High 62° / Low 43°


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

It started off pretty good and then...well, let me not say that - I’ll try again…

Today was an overall good day, I got a lot done, but I had to listen to my body and rest toward the end of it. Lupie Bride issues...

That’s better. More positive!


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

I was okay at first - I’ll give a 3 for pain -- my hands were more achy, but I popped some pain pills and kept it moving...and then I went and ran errands in between working and I don’t know WHAT happened to me. By 5 pm I hadn’t had a nap and I tried to push through...but nope. I had to lay it down...Pain hit a 5, and then a 6...exhaustion was at a 9...so slept the rest of the night...with exception of making tacos for dinner for my future husband...then back to bed for me.

Workout Time & Duration?

I worked out for exactly ZERO hours, minutes, seconds today.


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

While out running errands, I noticed that our planner, Joyce replied to our messages, so I multi-tasked and went back and forth with her about this damn menu package. We’ve expanded our dinner budget to the largest package with a bunch of shit that we don't even need, added more menu choices and they won’t give us the champagne that we want - what the fuck?!?

I’m obviously feeling some kind of way about it (they could work with us) so I looked at the package again and started asking more questions…

💖 Can we just bring our own champagne and they serve it? If so, how much is a case?

💖 Do we even need the rest of the shit in that big package since we already have outside vendors? For me, the answer is no unless we decide to use lounge furniture - and for 30 people - it makes no sense.


Joyce mentioned us not even doing a package and paying for everything individually...interesting...I need to know more!

I tried to explain it all to Che, but by the time I sat down to talk to him, it was after dinner and I had already deteriorated into a hot mess bordering on delirium. He told me to go to bed and we’ll talk about it tomorrow...I sent an email to Joyce to ask about the individual pricing and then complied - I had to, or I may have dreamed about it - it had to get off of my mind!


Joyce is gonna find out the champagne case pricing and get back to me about the individual pricing and we’ll go from there. We have to keep in mind that we have to make our decision and pay them by the 27th - 30 days before the wedding date.


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?


Loving Black Love Moment?

I had a hard time telling Che how I was truly feeling, but he was persistent in making sure that I was honest. I don’t want to face the fact that I may be having a flare so I’m trying my best to be in denial...but he’s not having it. I’m glad I have him in my life - both he and my body are making sure that I’m doing what I’m supposed to do and being honest is at the top of that to-do list.

What am I happy for?

I’m happy that my dress fitting and bachelorette weekend AND birthday are next week!

What could I have done better?

I should have split up my errands into 2 days because I knew I was doing too much from the beginning. Making 4 stops in a few hours is too damn much - I can’t be doin’ all that!


What am I doing tomorrow?

Taking it easy and listening to my body...I have exactly one week to get my shit together - bachelorette weekend will not be flare-up weekend - hell no!
