I find myself a little torn between the two at the moment. On one hand, I usually enjoy traveling for work because it means we are out visiting customers; one of the parts of my job that I enjoy most. But it means sitting in an airport and working long hours and being away from my sewing machine. Have I mentioned I haven't finished the table runners yet? I can't help but wish that I didn't have to go, but then I'd be coming home after a boring day of work in the office, and sitting down with my Kenmore and knocking out a runner or two. I'd feel much more accomplished on the wedding front, but not so satisfied with my other job..you know, the one I actually get paid for.
I feel like I've been working two full time jobs for the past eleven months. Even while I'm traveling, I find myself thinking of ways to work both of them. Just last week I started laying out our programs in Illustrator on my flight to Sacramento. While in my hotel room in Cincinnati this week, I fully intend on wrapping up the final playlist for our ceremony.
So where is the balance? At the moment, there isn't one. I go to work (whether it be in the office or out of town), then I come home (or sit in my hotel room) and it's time to tackle the wedding to-do list. At some point I sleep, but in the morning it doesn't feel like I ever closed my eyes. Luckily for me, it can only last two more months. I'm glad I didn't have a longer engagement, or I might be a little nuts (and a little more than exhausted) by the end of this thing!
How do you balance work and wedding planning? Do you feel like you're working two full time jobs?
