These are the things I worry about daily:
What if Jimi never wants to get married?
What if I never have a baby?
What if I do get pregnant? How would we afford it?
What if I get cancer and die?
What if Jimi dies?
What if my parents die?
Every day. On a loop. Over and over and over again.
Most of the time, I'm able to shove them back to the farthest corner of my mind and not pay them any attention. But sometimes it feels like they're yelling at me.
Do you have this? Is it normal?
Personally speaking, I worry like this, too. Grant it, my set of worries are a little different.ReplyDelete
I just try to rest my mind, like you said, and enjoy the moment. It's hard to not want to control things when they're nearly perfect, or you're really happy.
It's easier said than done though. I hope you have a great weekend!

I think it's very normal. I will warn you, it will probably be even worse when you get pregnant and have a baby. Most of those things are completely out of your control, so just take deep breathes and focus on the positives!ReplyDelete
As for not affording a baby, daycare runs around the amount that you were being garnished. You handled that veery successfully, so you could absolutely tighten the budget a pinch more and afford a baby!! Daycare is $$$, the rest is pretty easy.
You're not alone in having those thoughts.ReplyDelete
Yes, unfortunately this is quite normal. Although I once heard it's the things that you worry about that you don't have to worry about because its the things that never cross your mind that'll getcha.ReplyDelete
That doesn't stop us from worrying though. Here are some of mine:
1) Did I put my underwear on inside out again?
2) Will my husband leave me?
3) Am I becoming an alcoholic?
4) What if I get home and there's no liqueur in the house?
Like you, I have a list of worries. 99% of the time, they are shoved way back in the corner of my mind but every now and then they rear their head. I think you are normal.ReplyDelete
Of course, I have worries (though not identical to yours, they are in the same vein).ReplyDelete
Of course, at some times it's more difficult to deal with than at other times.
Just remember: It will be okay, no matter what.
You will get through it.
