Yes, four days is all I have to enjoy the single life. 

Clearly I need to amp up the excitement. On Saturday night I went to bed at 9:00. Apparently I'm already an old boring married person, and honestly, that's okay with me. 

Tonight Jordan's parents are taking him out to dinner. I think they're getting all sentimental that their firstborn son is growing up, moving out, and getting married. Of course, we're just a few miles down the road, and Jordan and I don't have cable, so it's not like we aren't still planning on popping over uninvited to watch a baseball game or something. 

There are a lot of things I'm excited about for this weekend, but I keep coming back to one: standing in the back of the church and having my dad hold out his arm to me. I'll take it, and we'll start walking down the aisle. My dad's not one to like serious moments, so my mom's already warned me that he'll probably try to make a joke at some point, which will hopefully keep me from crying, because my face gets unattractively red when I cry. 

Today is my last day of work for this week, and thank goodness, because I can hardly concentrate. Tonight I'm going to finish up some last-minute shopping, and then tomorrow I'll clean the apartment, go for one last hair trial, pick up the marriage license, and then wait for two of my bridesmaids to arrive. 

After that, it's going to be crazy busy, so you probably won't hear from me until I get back from the honeymoon. And then... 

Jordan and I will have to figure out who's sleeping on which side of the bed.
What time we each need to get up in the morning to get ready for work. 
When we prefer going to sleep at night. 
What station the radio will be set to for the alarm: music or news?
How we're going to attempt to keep the closet organized.
Who's doing what household chore.

And these are only the things I'm thinking off the top of my head.

No one really talks about this. I mean, I've heard it said that getting married is quite an adjustment, but no one actually says, "This and this and this were big things we hadn't thought about before." 

But it's happening, and I'm ready to think and write and focus on something other than the wedding, although I know I'll probably miss it once it's over. It's been months of planning and a lot of hard work. And now it's here. Wedding week. In four...

So I just saw "bridesmaids" & I think you NEED to see this on one of your last single girl days. It might make you pee, seriously.
