We're on the count down to my daughter's wedding. The only thing that matters in all this is the marriage, but it is the wedding that is taking over my life. As a fairly capable, crafty sort of person I am sourly tempted to do it all myself. I can't. I don't think I've ever had a situation like this where I couldn't do it all myself, even though I have the ability. There is just too much to do! I've made more wedding dresses, fancy dresses, and elaborate wedding cakes then I can count, but for my own daughter's wedding I didn't make her wedding dress (I did alter it), I didn't even make my own dress (I started it, I just ran out of time to finish it), and I'm making a very simple wedding cake. I have a ton of friends willing to help, I sure love all of them. I've got every day this week mapped out as to what I need to do. Today was make all the final shopping lists (mainly food). Tomorrow we're going out to buy food.... lots and lots of food. Wednesday is mainly for cooking/baking, Thursday is for flowers (a friend is doing the actual flower work)and finishing the cake, Friday is setting up the reception and Saturday is the big day. Whew.
