Breathe...ok, now a sip of wine, and another...
I am just about stressed out to my max. Tavish has bacterial infections in both his ears, and he is not happy about the cleanings and ointment I have to use, but he enjoys the peanut butter that hides the antibiotic pill. We dropped $180 at the vet for all kinds of things, he has been very expensive this year.
Florida will have to wait. Grandma still does not have power in her apartment but some of her building does. They said curfews are still in effect and things are a mess, so our next time we can go is a week before Christmas. Hope she is ok till then.
The people came on Tuesday for the second showing, really like the house but (there is always a but) they are not sure of the location. (I am close to an intersection and a gas station. Never a bother for me, but not the prettiest view. It has been a huge obstacle for me in selling, and I would have sold it months ago if I had a better view. We close in 2 weeks and I have no idea when we can move, not till we sell my house.
Work is extremely stressful right now. Busy, but very tense. We have had some layoffs recently and more to come. I am not sure if it is justified or if I am just paranoid, but I feel very anxious. And we have to move to another floor in the building temporarily in January, till a permanent move a few months later. 
Wedding date is set for September 3!  Once all the dust settles, I will focus in everything else...but I get overwhelmed thinking about the details...the photographer, the band, the flowers, the dresses...I am having everything at the stop shopping, at least will ease my stress with some logistics. No need to plan a limo or coach or bring the dress here and flowers there....
But through all this, what keeps me from totally losing it, I think is the strength I learned from surviving cancer. Next month marks my 6 year anniversary and I am blessed.
Love to all of you-

Oh, I don't think you have any problem justifying your anxiety, hun.  Just one of those things would have me pretty worked up.  Hope your mom's okay.  Is she coming up for the wedding?

First of all congrats on your 6 year mark. I cant wait till Iam there. I will send more good vibes on the sale of your house.

Tavish has had a rough go of it lateley, I know how those vet bills can add up we have 2 so everything is doubled. I hope he is feeling better now.

Im glad you have a wedding date set. It sounds so far away right now but will be here before you know it. Concentrate on getting the houses sold and then work on the wedding.

Have a glass of wine for me too, since chemo I cant stand the taste of it and I used to love it.

Good Luck with everything Lori! It will go so fast that you wont even remember half of just enjoy working through all the decisions with your fiance, and dont worry. In the end, it's not how well the flowers match the dresses or how big the wedding cake is that you remember, but the look in your loved ones eyes when they see how happy you are. Have Fun!!
