So Elizabeth threatened me publicly with a “honey do” (aka, “honeydew”) list for me to take care of for the wedding plans. We’ve been building up a rather impressive list of things to take care of between now and our wedding date on September 17, so when she IM’d me today saying she”d finally Emailed me a “honeydew” list after she edited the private forum message where we”ve tracked out to-do list, I got a little worried not knowing what I was in store for.
As with other times in life, I panicked needlessly.
1. Call our musician and confirm he’ll be at the rehearsal and that he”s got music in mind to play.
A quick call to Dr. Stephan and it was all lined up and he jotted it down in his calendar.
2. Call our MC and make sure that he’s still lined up since he hasn’t RSVP’d yet.
Not having our MC’s phone number on hand and only his yahoo.com address memorized, I sent him an Email confirming that we still wanted Tom (the radio DJ formerly known as “Luke Skyhopper” of K-FROG who now works the afternoon drive home shift at a country station in Vegas) to be our MC and could he still make it. Tom, if you read this, call me, would ya?
3. Forgive her for burdening me with these two tasks.
Okay, in her defense, her #3 item was to forgive her if I’d already taken care of these two items. While pretty much everything left on our forum-hidden list are all on equal plane right now, I went to the forum to see which two items were left on the list for her to take care of. I think I saw about 30 other things to take care of.
She gave me 2 things, and kept 30.
I’d go back to playing Star Wars Galaxies, but my landlord had his electricity shut off today for bouncing a check to pay the bill, so I’m hanging out at Fourbucks until they kick me out at 10pm.
On a more serious note, we’re VERY happy that we”ve taken almost a year to plan our wedding. I honestly can’t recommend it enough to have a 8+month engagement to give yourselves enough time to CHOOSE what you want for your wedding. Elizabeth told me last summer that she wanted an 18-month engagement, and I thought she was crazy. Being the naive guy that I am, I figured it wouldn’t take so long to plan a party, but man was I corrected in a hurry, and a big time THANK YOU to my sweetie for telling me she wanted a long engagement. I can’t imagine having the pressure of a quick engagement and wedding.
And yes, I fully intend to self-delegate things from our to-do list, which includes things like getting our party rental place on the phone and getting a final quote for the dishes and teapots we need and getting money to them for a deposit, etc.
