More and more frequently, the first thing people ask me is, "How is wedding planning going?!" It always, always, strikes me as the strangest of questions. I am very aware that there are people out there who love to plan weddings, even make a career out of it. I have to think that even people who love planning weddings, when planning their own wedding, hate planning their wedding at some point, even if for a little tiny fraction of a second.
I've recently employed a technique on how to answer this question. I had to because of the looks of horror I was getting from near strangers from answering honestly, "It's hard balancing what I am willing to do for us vs. what I am willing to do for others in my life." Then I tried, "It's hard", only to get puzzled looks.
My response now is the littlest of white lies, "It's Grrreat, thank you for asking" because, you know, it's easier than the truth.
ps, i miss I Hate Planning My Wedding, but know she's in wedded bliss somewhere...
