Being Cornered

*** Warning: More Venting. Please do take the general vibe into consideration. (And there are exceptions. You know who you are. )***

If I could have a wish, it would be that I not be asked about wedding stuffs anymore. I'd be content to start with not having anyone ask anything related to "So, Cinderella, how are wedding plans?" for a whole 24 hours. Then maybe the next goal would be 48 hours, and so on. Maybe people would forget about it completely.

Yes, I do understand that people are excited for me and want to share in the happiness and joy. That's great. I feel loved. I really do. By the time that I rotate through everyone that I see on a more or less frequent basis, and everyone wants to check up, it feels like I'm being asked all the time by everyone. Am I overreacting? Probably. It's so annoying, though. Then I feel bad for being annoyed, when all people are wanting is to be nice and helpful. Can you tell I'm green? :)

And oddly enough, it's SO much less threatening when it's online than in person. In person, the person is standing there, waiting for an answer. I have social norms to uphold. Online, I can take my sweet time. I don't have to answer right away. There's so much less pressure, and I have a moment or two extra to word things exactly the way I want to.

I don't hate you. Please don't hate me.

Right now, there's not a date. When there is, I'll let you know.

Just do what I do. "I don't believe in marriage anymore. For now, we're just going to live together."

Ha, ha! My last week being pregnant...maybe even the last month...

Anyway, my mom emailed me and called me everyday--just to "see how I was."

Anyone who knew I was I due soon kept asking the same sort of thing, "Any labor pains yet?" and so forth. I was going crazy, so I feel your pain. :)

I'm glad you have a date now though!
