The next four days

I pretty much have every minute of the next four days mapped out.

Go to Gart's and pick up Cory's restrung tennis racket
Go to Michael's and see if we can find boxes to put the groomsmen's yo-yos in
Go to WinCo and get batteries, a travel toothbrush, tissues, 2 bottles of sparkling cider, and cream
Have dinner at Baja Fresh
Play some tennis (even though it's chilly outside)

Go to work and leave early hopefully
Go to aunt Carol's house at 5 and have dinner with Dad's side of the family until 8
Go home and meet Cory's brother Joel (who's coming from the Bay Area) and his sister Lisa and her family (who're coming from Austin, TX)(yay for new neices!!) and spend the late evening with them

Spend the morning at the zoo with Cory's family (his mom, bro, sis, bro-in-law, and neices)
Go home in time to meet my maid of honor Rachel at 3, (who's coming from Ashland) and set up for my wedding shower/bachelorette party
Pick Haley up from aunt Carol's house
Have my party at 5:30
Welcome Cory back home and sleep with him one last night before the wedding (and I do mean sleep. We have lots to do.)

Leave home at 7am with Rachel to get to the pie place in Salem by 8
Pick up and pay for pies, and deliver most of them to Grandma and aunt Tia
Bring the rest of the pies home, have lunch, have a second to breathe
Go to the jewelers and get my ring cleaned
Go to McIver park by 2 or 3 with Remmy and Rachel and Haley to set up for the rehearsal dinner
Have the rehearsal at 5, make the guys move picnic tables, sweep the shelter floor, eat pizza, and play badminton
Go home with Haley and Rachel and Nicoal, and have a quiet girls' night, and paint my nails, and have a glass of wine, and sleep with Remmy so she doesn't feel left out

Get up early early and try to go for a run (yeah, right)
Stop by Safeway and grab breakfast for the decorating crew on the way to the park
Get to McIver by 8am (with Haley - Rach and Nicoal will drive themselves so they can leave after the reception)
Decorate until 10:30
Run to Mom's hotel room in Estacada with Haley, Rach, Nicoal, and aunt Stac, and hopefully Mom, and do makeup and hair
Come back at 12:30 or so and change into dress/skirts and maybe get a couple of pictures taken with the bridesmaids
Get married at 1!
Do all that reception stuff (feeding each other pie, toasts, blah blah blah)
Go to the Hotel Vintage Plaza and have a wedding night

Get up earlyish and drive home
Drop off wedding clothes and pick up honeymoon stuff, take the dog out, shove her in the car, and drive east!

OK, so I added Sunday. And I could keep going since I know what our itinerary is. But you get the picture. I did all this from memory, too. I'm a smartie. :D It looks like I should be freaking out. I'm surprisingly calm. Ahh.

I just realized that today, Cory's wearing the shirt that he's wearing in that icon! Ooh!

Even though I have this schedule in several different lists, seeing it all together is freaking me out.

deep breaths deep breaths deep breaths

I know, it's weird, eh? But it's really not all that bad. You don't have to do some of the things I'm doing, so that helps, right?
Jul. 8th, 2003 04:17 pm (UTC)
Yeah, but you don't have to do some of the thing I'm doing. So it balances out.

So, can we watch T3 on our wedding night?
Jul. 8th, 2003 09:44 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I wouldn't be able to do this all by myself - good thing I'm marrying someone!
Jul. 8th, 2003 03:10 pm (UTC)
Wow! You have so few days left!!
Jul. 8th, 2003 03:41 pm (UTC)
I know! It's so amazing how fast it's going!
Jul. 8th, 2003 05:23 pm (UTC)
Hey, how come I'm not scheduled to help with anything??
Jul. 8th, 2003 08:35 pm (UTC)
You have to help decorate! And I don't know what else yet. Are you going to spend the night on Friday night?
Jul. 8th, 2003 09:22 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I'm going to spend the night. I can come early to the rehearsal or to your house before hand and go with you guys.

That sounds good to me. We're not taking a ton of stuff, so if you want to drive over here first I can drive all of us over there so we can get in for free. I'm not sure what time we're leaving, but I'll probably get a better idea once it gets closer.
Jul. 8th, 2003 09:52 pm (UTC)
Sounds swell!
Jul. 8th, 2003 06:00 pm (UTC)
I am so excited for you!
Jul. 8th, 2003 08:36 pm (UTC)
Thanks!! :)
Jul. 8th, 2003 11:51 pm (UTC)
It looks like you have all the bases covered! :D
Jul. 9th, 2003 06:22 am (UTC)
I hope so! That's the idea, anyway!
Jul. 9th, 2003 09:38 am (UTC)
3 days and closing... :)
