Getting through the next 16 days!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Lane Realty Eatonton, GA Lake Sinclair, Milledgeville, 706-485-9668 GREC# 169695

Back in January when I begin helping my daughter search for a venue and make wedding plans and writing checks (lots of checks) I just kept saying that I had to work hard to not have to tap into my savings to make my only daughter have a beautiful wedding.  Now that I'm just 17 days out from THE DAY I am swamped with work. No complaints about that at all, but boy am I tired.  

Last Sunday when I was washing up the rest of the serving dishes and about to sit down to work on the center pieces my cell rang and I had to run to my office and type a counter offer. I have typed more offers and counter offers in the past week than I have in any 7 day period for the past 10 years. 

I still have just a few wedding favors to put together and then the weekend of the wedding to plan to NOT work and have other agents cover for me.  Thankfully it's also Mother's Day weekend and typically with that being a very family oriented holiday we're normally at a slower pace that weekend.

The time has flown by really. I can't believe it's just two weeks and two days left to wedding day. I'm excited and still a bit nervous that I've let some little detail fall through the cracks somewhere.

Hi Tammy - congratulations on your daughters upcoming wedding.  It is an event to remember.  We had my daughter's wedding last November.

Tammy,

What a wonderful mom you are.  I am sure that have done an outstanding job, and it will be a beautiful wedding!  And work is good for refilling your bank account.  Congratulations to all of you.  A

Hi Tammy

How exciting for you and your daughter despite all the preparations - I remember those days with 2 daughters. Glad to hear business is going well for you, too!

How exciting. I've been down that road twice. One of my daughters had a lovely wedding and all went well. The other made the very brave decision to cancel hers just a week before her bridal shower. As for all those checks you are writing....the wedding that never happened cost us more than the wedding that did. LOL

Tammy, even it some little details fall through the crack ... it will still be an amazing wedding and no one will notice what's missing, if anything, except you.

Your daughter is a very lucky young woman to have you doing all this heavy lifting.  Soon it will be over but both of you will have great memories of the event.

Hi Tammy,
I'm sure the wedding will be amazing.    Hang on.  Sounds like it's going to be a wild couple of weeks ahead.

Grant Schneider I'm excited.  Looking forward to a beautiful event.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel I'm thrilled about both the wedding and the being busy.  But I'm also tired.

Sharon Lee I can't wait to post some photos from the day

Jeff Dowler yeah, who needs sleep anyway? HAHA.  I will need a vacation soon.

Sharon Tara that was better than heartache down the road.  But I'm sure this is for keeps, my lucky girl is marrying her best friend.

Kathleen Daniels I sure hope if something does fall through the crack it's a wedding detail and not a contract detail.  I'm making check lists for my check lists.

Mona Gersky honestly when I think about Abigail's load it's so much heavier than mine. She literally holds people's lives in her hands 25% of her life.  She works 12 hour shifts 7 out of every 14 days, she's also a full time student and planning a wedding and a single home owner with a flower garden.  Oh a dog mommy too.  Yeah, I'm a proud mom.

Carol Williams I hope it all goes as it is planned.

OH MY GOSH, Tammy!  I can't BELIEVE the time is upon you!  I know Abigail is SO excited and I'm sure she's working, just like you (well, maybe not as many hours!) until the big day!  I can't wait for the big day!  (Love her engagement photos, BTW - she looks SOOOO happy!)

I've been crazy busy too and like you, written more Offers than ever before - and I LOVE it!

Debe Maxwell, CRS actually it's really totally crazy how much she is working.  She's got a full class load this semester, a full time job that is 7 12 hour days out of every 14 and she also just took on a part time job at a local MRI center.  She's hitting the gym a few times a week to keep that wedding dress fitting and we have a family baby shower tomorrow for a cousin.  She really amazes me.  And the time passed SO quickly.

Look, I know, that apple didn't fall far at ALL from the tree, Tammy! I'm so excited for her - and you!  You'll be gaining a SON!  How wonderful!

What an exciting time Tammy Lankford, I'm sure you're busier today than when you wrote the post. Your precious daughter is just like you when it comes to work. Hope your workload will slow down a bit.
