Get ready

Saturday Jan 29, 2011

In another one of my silly decisions I stopped taking my antidepressants over Christmas. Yeah, I know.

I’d run out of them and since I’d been (relatively) stable and things were going really well I thought I’d take a break. A few weeks later I realised it was a really stupid idea when I kinda crashed. So back on them but it’s going to take another week or so to kick back in.

As a result I am sweetness and light to be around at the moment. I pretty much just want to be home alone until everything settles back but it’s been a busy month.

Beth and DJ’s wedding is less than a month away so there’s been a bit of prep for it. We went and tried on the bridesmaid dresses last weekend, thank fuck mine fits. There is a shit ton of tulle involved but the skirt of the dress is tutu-esque so I love it. There won’t be much breathing going on, the dress maker was all “breathing’s overrated”, thanks you silly wench. There’s boning in the top so I don’t have to wear a bra but I’m hoping there won’t be any ahem, incidents during the night.

The hens and bucks night are tonight. Beth seems to think that DJ may come home sans eyebrow or with broken limbs, hence having them a few weeks out. In a reverse of the stereotypical vibe DJ is completely relaxed about the upcoming wedding, Beth is the one who looks vaguely horrified about the wedding. She’s always been a bit commitment phobic and she’s out of her comfort zone. She’ll be fine, there’s no worry about the runaway bride, it’s just quite entertaining to see her pale visibly when you mention forever.

I had dinner with Bec last week, she’s part of the best friend trinity of Beth and MormonHousewife. She announced she was pregnant, I cried I was so happy. We grew up together with our parents babysitting for each other since we were babies. We both have slightly dysfunctional families so that’s always a bonding experience.

Since she’s pregnant and Beth’s getting married the trinity have all succumbed to the married/babies thing. It’s quite boring, I mean good for them and all but I’m just not a fan at the moment. My mother made a comment about how she’ll never be a grandma when I told her about Bec. I told her no, she’d never have grandbabies if she keeps making comments like that. Should keep her quiet for a while.

I’ve got to go and get ready for tonight, and by get ready I mean have a nap and get ready at the last minute.

Have a good weekend.

Ugh, I’ve been tempted to take a break from mine, but then I figured it was just the drugs talking, making me think I was better, sneaky wankers!

I feel ya on everybody getting married and having babies. It’s weird, and exciting for them, but it means that it’s a tad boring for the rest of us haha.

It was mainly prompted by laziness (I’d run out while on holidays and my doctors is near my office) but it was really a stupid decision.

Lesson learnt.

You hit the nail on the head, it IS boring to watch all of the wedding and baby stuff. I’m happy for my friends, I really am. It’s just hard to get into it when it’s not something I’ve chosen to do myself.

Eh, I’ll probably feel better once the crazy pills kick in 🙂

Mr. Guinness:

God bless, (whether you believe in Him or not). As we get older we realize there is more to this life than just ourselves. I admire your regard for family and friends,….in another life time you are a rockstar,…actually in this one as well!

I’m thinking there’s potential for some good stories that will come from tonight. I hope you have a great time, and I vote for pictures of this dress.
