I totally been in this spot before. I know it sounds stupid, but these things make us strong. Sometimes the Lord (or whoever you worship) gives us things to make us strong and more appreciative of what we have. Things are going to get better. Have a happy new year and just think about all of the positive things to come.

No problem about the posting. What are blogging friends for!!!

I would have cracked long before now. I mean that. Everyone has a moment in their wedding plans when the stop and just break. I know I have had.

I’m keeping in your thoughts and prayers. Maybe you just need to put a new spin on your wedding, work it a different way and think outside of the box. That one thing alone has helped me more than anything else in the world.

If all else fails.. realize your wedding will never be as bad as a this girls: plastic pink table cloths, confetti, no church decorations, and the preacher forgot the ring ceremony and declared them husband and wife. The good news the bride was stunning, no one will ever forget her wedding, and it was short. Lol.

Feeling worked over is completely normal–you’ve been (and are going through) the wringer. Keep your perspective, but know that you’re allowed (and indeed, NEED) to cry and vent and rant and rave.

I wrote a post about accepting ourselves in rough times last month (link: http://ameliacarolyn.blogspot.com/2008/11/standing-in-fire.html). Not sure it’ll help, but thought I’d share just in case.

Thinking of you. I can’t imagine having to live away from my fiance right now. Stay strong.

Someone you can miss when he’s away and cherish when he’s nearby… and i’m glad you realize that when all is said and done, that’s all you want… to be his wife. The wedding will be fabulous, even if its not what you “envisioned”… you are marrying the man of you dreams and that in an of itself is more beautiful than anything money can buy!

Keep your head up… 2009 will bring you a lot of great things… I just know it will! :)

I went through 4 1/2 months of unemployment last spring and it was so hard not to be miserable. One of the best things you can do for yourself is to try to stay on a regular schedule: go to bed at a regular time, wake up at a regular time, eat healthy and well-rounded meals at regular times, and exercise. Keep calling the unemployment people, it will eventually get sorted out and you will receive all your back benefits. As for health insurance, I don’t know what your state might offer but I know when I lost my job I became eligible for a state-subsidized health plan intended for small businesses, etc, and it cost a lot less than Cobra for decent basic coverage. Good luck, you will get through this.

If you can’t express what you’re going through on your blog, then I don’t know where you can! Hang in there. It will definitely be tough, but remember that you will be together shortly… and time will fly! COBRA is always a pain to get started, from what I’ve heard… you’ll get it all sorted out.

I lost my job back in Nov and I still haven’t gotten my unemployment! They are so slow, I continue to call for my schedule appts every 2wks because once and if I’m approved they will have to pay me from Nov. This economy is a trickle down effect of poor government starting from the TOP! Hopefully with a new incoming president that’s for the middle/working class things will turn around.

As for the wedding I stress about not having enough money everyday since the FI is the only one working but I put it in gods hands and take it a day at a time. Trust me it works try not to think about it and deal with the wedding as it comes. Me and the FI have already agreed that the closer we get if we have to pull out and elope then we will because more than anything I just want to be married!

Stay strong and you are definetly in my prayers :)

I just wanted to let you know that you are in my prayers and I hope that 2009 brings you all you deserve. Best wishes. Hold strong.

All I can offer by way of advice is to keep doing what you’re doing and focus on moving forward, taking the right steps to ease this burden as much you can and look forward to the great days ahead. It really will get better, as I am finally figuring out after months of feeling hopeless, and luckily you have a great family and E to help you get to the other side. My thoughts are with you!
