After planning a wedding for the past 5 months and planning a move for about 4 of those same months, I've reached my boiling point.
I was so excited last night to get all my kitchen boxes unpacked. For the final time I wiped down the "work zone" counters and scrubbed the "paint brush cleaning" sink. Its now my kitchen.
I was thrilled as I started making a checklist in my head.
Living room - done
Kitchen - done
Dining room - waiting on table and china cabinet to be moved this weekend
Library - done (for now)
Guest bedroom - up to Mr. Right (that's his closet space)
Guest bath - put out spare CVS toiletries for guests
Master bedroom - full of wedding gifts
Master closet - waiting on my extra special control freak "a place for everything" touch
Master bath - done, excluding gifted towels (is it bad luck to wash these things up before the wedding?
Man room - done, also none of my business
Then I realized we had one major problem - I had purchased wedding night attire at Victoria's Secret in June. It made the move (or so I thought) from my apartment to my parents house. When I thought about it, I just assumed it would turn up when I unpacked. Only now I've unpacked almost every box and its no where to be found.
$35 down the drain. I thought about not buying it. If Mr. Right new how much I paid for it, he would think it was the most unsexy piece of cloth he'd ever seen. But I rationalized that this little splurge wouldn't hurt anything. It was a once in a lifetime chance.
36 days till the wedding night and Victoria's Secret is where she decided to hide herself.
The good news is I found my pert plus receipt (it was wrapped around the Walgreens gift card). Not much comfort when your net loss is $30.71.
