A Scottish Break

I am taking a break from wedding planning for the next 11 days so I can take a trip with my family to Scotland. Unfortunately Justin isn’t coming with me. And I will miss him. In the past few weeks I have been frantically trying to line up all my vendors. And I am happy to say that all the main ones besides the DJ are taken care of! Venue, check. Photographer, check. Caterer, check. Florist, check. What an accomplishment. Of course, while I’m away the wedding planning can’t stop so I have given Justin his first three activities to take care of: hire the DJ, find a hotel for our guests to stay at in downtown Denver, and start researching honeymoons.

Turkey Trotting and Estimating

Apparently I am going to run the Turkey Trot this year on Thanksgiving Day. It’s a 5k run, nothing to write home about but I’m scared. Why? Because I am not a runner. I can hardly run around the block without wanting to die. So, to prepare for this torturous event I am going to start training tonight. Yep, that’s over two months in advance. Apparently I also have to estimate each activity I identified in my wedding work breakdown structure a few weeks ago in order to know how much effort I am going to need to put into planning my wedding. That’s 116 activities. That’s a lot of estimating. Estimating how long it is going to take me to train for the Turkey Trot is a lot like estimating the effort of planning my wedding. I have no idea how long it’s going...
