I'm so tired

We were wedding shopping all day long. Shopping for what? You might ask. Shoes, necklaces, earrings, lace, gumpaste, fabric, tissue paper. This and that. And how could that take ALL day? I have no idea, but it did. My life is draining away with this errand running. AND I have yet to accomplish much of anything for the actual wedding. I just look at the list I've got to do and I have no idea how this will actually happen. Rebecca mailed me her wedding dress in order for me to do the necessary alterations. BTW I would never suggest trying to do alterations long-distance. This could be one of the stupidest things I've ever tried to do. The main thing it needs is sleeves. The fabric has to be similar, right? So, I go to our one remaining fabric store and it has magically converted itself into a craft store. I guess I noticed that they were doing some remodeling but I didn't realize it would impact my life. There are so few fabric stores left. That's the sort of day it has been and I'm exhausted. Will I get my life back after this wedding? One of the downsides of being able to do lots of stuff myself is that I think I can do everything myself. Nobody in their right mind tries to do a wedding by themselves. PS There is a fabric store in another part of town, that's where I'm going tomorrow, wish me luck.
