Hey all... sorry I haven't been posting much lately. Life is *very* hectic right now. We had our "PEI Reception" over the weekend, and we currently have only 24 days until we leave for the wedding. Plus, I've been super sick with a kidney infection. Doesn't leave much time for blogging... or anything I enjoy for that matter, lol. My house has also managed to quite quickly slip into a disaster zone. Feeling a bit overwhelmed here at the moment. I'm excited about the wedding but very stressed at the same time. A few things aren't working out according to plan, and in true Chelsea form I am really worrying over them (trying my hardest not to.. but..) to the point where I keep having dreams about things going terribly wrong at the wedding.
Last night I dreamed that Matt had invited a bunch of girls to be bridesmaids that I didn't even know, and that they were wearing terrible yellow and pink lace/chiffon dresses with pink tights. Somehow, the wedding ended in a riot. I woke up feeling all angry and anxious, not exactly a great way to start the day.
Something else that's really been bothering me a lot lately is the color of the walls in our townhouse. They are pale pale yellow (might as well just be white, so BLAH) and I *hate* them. I really want to paint badly, but Matt says no painting because it is just a rental. I have managed to not live anywhere with white walls.. well... ever. I just don't like this is my home at all, and hate that feeling. All I want to do is just settle in and make my place really *mine*. Now I feel like I can't do that here, and want to move as soon as our lease is up in April. Matt doesn't get it and thinks the walls are fine (they are fine, I guess) and that I am nuts. I spend a big portion of my life at home and I just want to really love it. I hate sitting in my living room staring at the walls and hating them. We have a family now and soon we will be married.. I want to create a home for my child where he can love growing up. Sigh.
I do still have a million things to do, so I have to cut this post short but I will leave you with this photo from the weekend;
Matt, Granny Ling, and Me :)
