Over on Offbeat Home I'm confessing some of my secrets… I have severe timing anxiety. Nothing stresses me out more than the idea of running late or accidentally missing appointments or parties.
From the post:
Know this about me…
If you invite me over to your house at 8 p.m., I'm out front of your place at 7:45, sitting in my car, checking emails and Instagram, listening to music, and watching the clock until EXACTLY 8 p.m., when I walk to your door.
You shouldn't know this — but Imma lay it on you anyway — I've also been obsessively looking at the clock since, well, I woke up that morning. Then around 6 p.m., I'm getting ready. When I'm fully dressed and ready at 6:30, I'm obsessively checking the Waze app to see how long it will take me to get your place. What about now? Aaaaaaand now? Okay, what if I left now? Oh, I'll get there at 7:30? Well, it'll take me a few minutes to grab my purse and walk down the stairs, so I should probably leave NOW.
Now, what is wedding planning if it's not a calendar full of appointments and parties?
We've talked about anxiety attacks on the day of your wedding, and dress shopping-induced anxiety. But if you have timing anxiety like I do, you might want to head over here to read the rest of the post and find out how I use my iPhone to hack the shit out of my anxieties. And you can too!
