We have an outside venue, and it is supposed to rain, at least in the morning. Looks like we are clear in the afternoon when our event will be taking place. Phew.
It is supposed to be cooler than we had expected. Right around 60 degrees. I ran out this week and bought that old lesbian staple to wear over my white button-down and keep me warm — a navy blue knit vest.
W picked this park/pavilion because it has a fireplace, so we will have a source of heat. It was supposed to be for “atmosphere” but now it looks like it will be for “warming of people.”
We are organized and ready to go, which helps. Everything we are bringing is boxed and labeled.
I keep worrying that I’ll forget how to tie my bowtie. (I got it tied on last night’s practice run in under two minutes.) Or that my custom Converse will get muddy. Or that I will totally freeze when it is my turn to say my vows. Did I mention that I hate speaking into microphones? These are the things this butch worries about.
Ok, time to take a deep breath and get through today. I need to make the ziti. Press my shirt. Get a haircut. Finish writing my vows. Pack a bag for the weekend.
What do you do in times of craziness and stress to calm yourself down? Any suggestions for your favorite butch?
