Amongst all the "essential' over packing needs, please note Brutus, our white brass buffalo. Few people know this but he is sort of the ShWalsh family mascot--he comes with us places like a travelling gnome. Garret makes videos of him getting up to no good, and he along with the other guys decided that he had to make the trip to Montreal as well. I am wondering if he, along with everyone else will make it home in one piece!

1. Turn shower to temp you want, get naked and be ready to leap in at a moments notice
2. Temp where you want it? Hop in and turn shower head to face the wall--soak yourself as fast as possible
3. As it begins to turn to one crazy extreme or the other, stand at back of shower so you just get mist of it and lather up hair and body
4. When you sense it heading back to more regular temperature, hop back in and rinse as if your life depends on it
5. Repeat steps 3-4 as needed...a few too many times if I am shaving my legs.
It has been working nicely except it has been so super hot the past few days that trying to have a cool shower before bed involves a lot of waiting through hot water cycles but it works...for now. How long can we live like this I wonder? It sort of reminded me of that early 90's hot water PSA featuring Tweety Bird "hot water can burn in wess than thwee seconds" Anyone else remember that?

I feel as if I have been decidedly "UnBridey" for a while. I have been trying to keep our wedding day in perspective and remember that it is just one day and we shouldn't let it take over our lives. So because of that, I avoided a lot of the wedding things like wedding shows and websites etc. I didn't want to realize that I "needed" something crazy expensive to make our day perfect...But I think that by doing that I now feel I have managed to forget a ton of stuff that we need to do to get ready. This didn't seem to be a problem because the wedding is SO far away and We (totally I...not much we in this wedding planning stuff. cough, IloveG cough) have so much time. However I made a wedding website to send out with the invitations to include information such as accommodations and information about the ceremony and reception. Over the past two days people have been getting our invites (yay) and checking out our website (also yay) . The down side of this is that I too keep checking out our website and noticing how the date at the top changes. 74 days til the wedding people 74 days.....that isn't really a whole lot of time. Especially since I have been reassuring myself with "we have three months" for the past few weeks. And I start getting minor heart palpitations thinking of crucial things I might be forgetting. Wedding panic dreams that people show up and I forgot to pick up my dress type of thing. Rational Julia knows, that at the end of the day as long as G and I get married, the day will be a success. But OCD, emotional, planny, Norman Rockwell visionary Julia needs everything to be PERFECT or the world will end. Those two need to meet in the middle somewhere I think. So the moral of this story is, remind me to quit looking at the website and someone get me started on a to do list and some Valium (haha)
