Is it all worth it?

Sadie is packed and ready to move. She is about the only one. I am so completely stressed out trying to get everything done. I sit here now and think....is this stress all worth it? I am grumpy. I cry over nothing. I pick stupd fights with my fiancé for breathing wrong.

I don't remember closing on a house being this hard 15 years ago. I have never been married so I can't even speak to that part. I do know that everything happening at the same time is really stupid. I want to run away.

And then everything that can go wrong does....
The car suddenly stops working for no reason at all except apparently that the theft protection device in the key failed after 8 years. Ok?

The appraiser on the house insists there is a foundation problem, which doesn't exist because, we already had it checked and it was fine, but now we have to have a structural engineer inspect it. Ok, thought I had that handled. Not so fast! The company that was going to do it decided to deny the request. Furthermore, they referred me to a company that refuses to do Pier and Beam foundations. Well ok, can you all just stab me now? We are closing in less than 2 weeks and I can't find anyone to pay to actually inspect the stupid foundation which is fine anyway.

Work...is just a little ball of stress.

Then I worry about everything in between the wedding and the house. Changing my address. As in, I haven't changed it and it suddenly occurred to me that I probably should since I don't live there anymore. Changing my name. I mean, I have had my name for 44 years. How does one just change it after that long? All this stress makes me feel....Fatter than Shamu! I am never going to fit into my wedding dress!

Oh and I have 3 concerts left and I can't find the tickets. I packed them....somewhere! Is this all worth it? Ask me in a month, I guess.

I've heard there are certain things you should not try to do in the same year -- buy/sell a house; change jobs; plan a wedding. I'd say two out of three definitely warrants some stress. Hang in there, Laura.

Thanks! It is almost over....I can't wait to sign on that dotted line.
