Farewell to Work

Today was my last day of work for three weeks! I don't go back until July 8.

Here I sit with a glass of wine, knowing that I don't have to go to work tomorrow... yet it still feels like I must have to go to work tomorrow. It'll be nice to sleep in a little bit in the morning.

I have never taken this amount of time off of work. This is a first for me. After three weeks off, I'm not really sure how I'll manage to go back. But I guess I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. For now... 20 days of total bliss. And after Saturday, all of those days should be pretty damn fun and/or relaxing.

It was strange to leave work today. I was actually a little bit reluctant because it felt like I must be forgetting to do something. But I knew that I wasn't... summer is pretty slow for me, so I just had a few things to wrap up, and that was it. I met with my boss and passed off a few things that were still pending, and done!

I had to resist the urge to put "I'M OUT GETTING MARRIED!!!" in my out-of-office auto-reply for my e-mail. That would have been fun. Oh well.

My dad gets into town tomorrow from Virginia. It's all becoming so real, yet I still can't grasp the fact that the wedding will actually be here in 4 days. It's a very strange feeling that I can't quite describe.

Today at work, there were a couple of times when I got a butterfly-like feeling in my stomach. So I think it's slowly sinking in.

And somehow, I managed to lose 3 lbs. without even trying last week. I ate pretty normally, and I had at least a glass of wine almost every night (stress reliever!). Interesting. I hope that weight loss continues (or at least holds steady) through this weekend! It'd be nice to be feeling really good by being down a few pounds.

We're in the homestretch now, people. It's really almost here.

4 days!

Good luck this weekend! I hope your wedding turns out as beautifully as ours did on the 7th!

If I can offer any advice, it is just to enjoy the day! There are so many things to think about, but you have to let yourself enjoy it! The day goes by so quickly! And, if something goes wrong, don't freak! People probably won't even notice!

Relax, smile, and go get married! :)
