Ok it's starting. The stress, that is.

I've suddenly become tired all the time. My body aches and my face is beginning to look like I'm 13 again.

I don't want to be stressed. I want to enjoy this time. I've never wanted to be a bridezilla, so I'm not going to stress myself out more by suddenly morphing into one. (quick glance into my brain...while I was typing the word "morphing" all I could think of was The Might Morphin Power Rangers, and the yellow Power Ranger screaming "Saber Tooth Tiger!" with that weird ass lisp she has. Yes, people this is my brain)

My future MIL let it slip on Sunday that my future SIL was thinking about dying her hair purple. As my head started the slow Exorcist spin, I could hear this deep voice say "DON'T DYE YOUR HAIR" only to realize that this demonic voice was coming out of me. If my future SIL does one more thing to her hair, I'm pulling a Britney and shaving it for her and giving her a wig to wear. And that's the extent of my Bridezilla-ness. (hopefully)

I really want to be a good and humble bride. While, yes this day will be all about me (ok, mostly about me and a little bit about fiance :)) I don't want to be one of those women who constantly remind people "THIS IS MY DAY" Don't you just want to slap those people?

I just don't want to be stressed. Does anyone out their have any helpful tips for me? I'm getting a massage tomorrow so that should take care of the knot between my shoulders. But other tips would be greatly appreciated.

I have no tips on how not to be crazy, but maybe you should do the exact opposite of what Ido. You should be OK if you do.

Vegas? Just kidding. I have found (throughout the years) that I have become a closet control freak. When I plan something, I WANT IT TO GO THE WAY I PLANNED IT! It never works that way. So, you just have to sit back, take DEEP breaths, and enjoy...anything that doesn't necessarily go the way you want it will make for great comic material later on in life. Focus on you and Fiance and the committment you are making to each other.
Oh, and I'm not a big drinker, but a big shot of you favorite poison helps a lot too. :)

you know full well that you are- and have always been a control freak--- i love you for this. we are like sisters for this reason. remember every witt theater event we ever did. WE WANTED TO DIRECT ALL OF THEM. yes. so you think your wedding is going to go smoothly as far as planning, it may, but you still need to remember you are not going to be a bridzilla. (interjection... THAT IS A HELL OF A RUN ON SENTENCE) i love you and i can not believe that in 2 weeks and a few days i get to SEE YOU AN DCOME TO YOUR WEDDING. praise god for a vacation from my family. i love you. did you know that?
