Mmmm...coffee. I need the jolt today.

Allergies are kicking my ass, starting with what feels like a bubble in my head, behind my eyebrows. Ugh! This dreary weather sucks ass too. And then driving into work this morning talking on the phone, I got into a mini-argument (well more arguing on his end, then mine) with Big D about something totally silly. I hate that! And I try to make the point that it's not even worth the breath we're wasting on it and he just keeps going and going and going, like the freaking energizer bunny! And he thinks I can't let stuff go? Ha!

And I'm also annoyed at the guys in the bridal party. I didn't mention this before but Big D's Stag party (that was supposed to be tomorrow night) had to be canceled for "lack of interest". As in, not enough tickets were being sold to just break even! WHY you may ask?

1. For starters, the guys didn't start planning the damn thing till about 3 weeks ago...hello? It's not like they haven't had a freakin' year and a half and they waited till a month max to start planning?!? Needless to say, by the time a lot of guys found out the date of the stag, they already had previous plans and could not go!
2. Secondly, they did not make the stag in a centrally-located town. Instead they planned it in the town D's dad lives and the two groomsmen (who were planning the majority of it) live, and yet this town is at least 25 minutes away from D (not a huge deal, yes) but for most others it would have been like a half hour to an hour plus drive one way for friends and D's coworkers! Factor in the exorbitant price of gas lately and the fact that these guys would be driving home most likely intoxicated, and that is another reason no one wanted to go!!
3. And last but not least, the one thing D wanted at his stag, entertainment (i.e. strippers!) they weren't even going to have! So of COURSE with absolutely no entertainment, a far drive, and last minute planning...no tickets were selling.

I am angry and feeling bad for Daryl cuz this is supposed to be his fun party--his last hurrah--and I feel like he has been cheated. Some of the guys are now planning on taking him out Saturday night but even that has turned into an insane cluster-f*ck. His two groomsmen who don't live close by want to use DARYL'S truck (our only personal vehicle) to drive around in cuz one of them has a big-ass diesel guzzling truck and the other I think don't even has a car. The other guys who are going would probably be willing to drive but it's like the whole night depends now on these two groomsmen, one of which who up until this point, Daryl hadn't even heard from in like EIGHT MONTHS. EIGHT FREAKIN' MONTHS. Now, I know guys aren't like women and don't need to chat all the time or go out for coffee (or martinis! LOL) but still, you're the best man in a wedding and you can't call your boy for eight months?!?! (and you are supposed to be CLOSE FRIENDS?) Am I being unreasonable in thinking this is unacceptable? Hell, maybe I am just thinking like a woman, and that's the problem.

Okay, I guess I really needed to vent about that. Ha ha! I only planned on this being a short little paragraph. So much for that.

Thank GOD...fifteen more days, fifteen more days, fifteen more days...and this whole 3-ring circus will be over and it will just be me and D, the only two who matter, holding hands and staring into each other's eyes and appreciating every crazy, stress-filled, insane moment that lead us up to that point.

Oh, and I get to dress up like a princess.


Mmmmm....back to coffee.....

So dress up like a Princess and go to the Courthouse. Shoot for that matter just fly to Vegas. There is also and Elvis that can be the best man there. haha lol. Just trying to make lite. In the case of the strippers. You caould always do that. And I bet Firecracker Krissy might could overnight you a stripper pole. You know that was funny! Are you laughing yet? Everything will be fine. Deep Breaths April, Deep Breaths! Ok don't hyperventilate over there. Only 15 more days and then it's over. You will survive and it will be wonderful. And you be as pretty as ever while breathing into a little brown bag. ;-P

Stephanie said...

This is why I hated planning a wedding. So much stress. I was ready for AFTER the wedding. When it was just me and him. So take a deep breath and in 2 weeks this madness will be over.
And then you get to embark on a lifetime of madness with your husband! Haha! It never ends but it's a great madness...

April said...

Kori-I AM laughing. I DID offer to strip for him. LOL But I'm short a stripper pole...Krissy????

Stephanie-I MUCH prefer just mine and D's madness to other people's...I so know what you mean. ;-) I'm taking those breaths now....

Enjoy the coffee...you need it!!!!

Wedding planning isn't all it's cracked up to be, is it!

But, hey, it's the marriage that counts.

Keri said...

You could always look into renting a 'town car'... they are pretty cheap and i think 4 guys can fit. Atleast that way they can tank it up and not have to worry about driving.

Poor guy! I guess maybe it's because I'm a woman, but I'd be ticked too! Maybe you could offer to rent a limo and hotel room for them...as if you don't already have enough to think about!! Sheesh, men.

Amy said...

Guys are lame, plain and simple.

I often say guys really get the better end of the bargain when it comes to most things, but in this case, being a girl *definitely* comes out on top. Stupid boys.

krissy said...

I'll give you a clue. If you and your girls took Big D out for his night, he would feel like a king. Just tell all the girls to give him some serious love, maybe some of those lap dances (he,he) and get him drunk. Take him to a strip club and everyone would be wowed by his all girl possee. Trust me, Craig has hung out with just the girls before and he has more fun then when he hangs with the boys. Cuz he feels all sorts of special. I think Big D would be thankful for it.

If I was there, I would give him a lap dance. He would puke, but I would do it anyway.

I want to be at your wedding to see you all dressed in beautiful. Damn it!

krissy said...

Ha, Ha....I just read Kori's comment. I almost peed my pants.

I just offered to strip for him, and I could run to home depot for some Pvc pipe. I would probably bend it in half and land on my face hole.

Go to the stripe club, explain the situation, and they may allow you and your friends to use their pole for him.

What????? Yes, I have done this before.

Steph said...

I say you girls take him to a strip club and show those silly boys up. I went once with my husband and he thought I was so freaking cool! so did his buds. Just a thought

April said...

Krissy I almost peed my pants laughing...with the pvc pipe!!! I love it! And yes, I have been to many a strip club with exes but never Big D so maybe now is the time, eh? I'm a freak, I admit it,I love strip clubs!

Kori said...

I am laughing so hard tears are streaming down my face and I'm at work. You girls rock!

OHmommy said...

15 days.

Wowzers!!!!

My husband talks to his best guy friends like twice a year!!! It is totally a guy thing.

Law Student Hot Mama said...

My hubby's stag fiesta? The stripper didn't show. It was a total sausage festival. So don't feel too bad for him - he's not alone in the wash-up stag.

Robyn said...

Poor D, why can't guys get it together? Everyone that my husband has gone to they rented a huge van and had a DD and went all over they place to see the ladies.

Heather said...

i agree with the ladies that suggest a night out with you and your girls and D. he will totally love it. he sounds like my hubby so i know he will love it. you can even go and get him a crown and robe thing (can't think of the king name for it) at the party store and he will definately be the king of the night! and to add a little flair if you girls are game dress a bit slutty for him while escorting him to the strip club and bars!

Taj said...

Heather said pretty much said everything I was going to say!

I attended my husbands stag party and paid a stripper to give him a lap dance wearing nothing but combat boots and a soccer jersey. (The guys were all British hence the jersey.) He loved it!

Whatever you do, I hope he has a great time!
