My daughter is getting married in eight months, so I've been busy planning her wedding ... and I've been neglecting my novel. And I left my protagonist in a pretty precarious situation! Shame on me! But, this weekend, I finished purchasing the majority of the things we can buy in advance, so I'll get back on track and writing tomorrow. My dining room is getting pretty crowded, and once everything I ordered comes in, it's going to be packed to the gills! I won't be able to stand all that clutter, so I'm going to have to find a less intrusive place to store all the stuff I'm gathering. There are still purchases and decisions to make, but I've taken care of a good many of them, so now I can take a break ... for a while anyway.
I don't know how much wedding planners make, and I would probably faint if I knew, but there is a lot of planning that goes into a wedding, so I'm sure a wedding planner doesn't come cheap. I'm handling most of the plans so that my daughter doesn't fret ... and because I'm an obsessive planner ... but it's a lot of work! I don't even want to know how many hours I have invested in searching the web night after night after night, looking for the best price, or driving around looking for things we need. But, if you are patient, you can find some amazing deals!
And ... I'm happy to report my daughter is indeed using the Wedding Spreadsheets, not to the extent I am, mind you, but she's using them nonetheless!!
