If you haven't heard already, Janna is getting married. She got engaged the very day she left home in August and now her wedding day is looming before us. She's not here to plan, but we try. SUU, where Janna and her fiance, Eric, are attending school, had a fall break. Happily they were home last weekend. We had a bridal shower and were also able to get some things squared away for the wedding.
I don't know what your definition of MOMZILLA is, but I look at it as me simply stressing out which I can easily do. I'm notorious for over thinking things instead of making a simple choice. I easily get overwhelmed with options. Anyway, we went to The Farmer's Wife and saw Joy who helped us put some flowers together for the wedding. I started asking questions and I think my girls were getting concerned as they gave me a glare when I began to ask yet another question after what they thought was turning into an interrogation. I caught my folly and quickly tried to smooth things over by explaining that I was just trying to understand it all and in my attempt may have turned into MOMZILLA. I apologized. I admit my stress level was somewhat mounting, but Joy in her joyful way reassured me that she understood where I was coming from. She said, "I've met MOMZILLA, and you're not her."
Yeah, thanks Joy for understanding and thank you for relieving the pressure about the flowers. She knew what she was doing and made it easy for us in spite of how I behaved. Thanks too for Sharon and Eric's mom, Linda, who are putting together the family dinner. I have so many other people helping us in so many ways. Now, if I can just not get stressed out keeping track of all my help MOMZILLA just might not rear her ugly head between now and December 19th.
