Not all its made out to be...

A few months ago I figured out how to cut back on the self induced stressed caused by the wedding planning. I just stopped talking about it to people other than K and family. It has seriously helped. But now that it is closer to the wedding my mother is driving me nuts. I cried my eyes out yesterday.

There a long history on why my mother and I don't see eye to eye. I am my father's daughter. Sad to say, but I see why they got divorced. Anyway, my mother had never really been a traditional Vietnamese woman, heck she got a divorce! But now for my wedding she wants everything to be like we were back in the motherland! All the "traditional" things I am doing for the wedding are not traditional enough for her. We fought, I cried, and then I didnt talk to her at the menu tasting unless I had to.

I was so upset, I called my father. He agreed that these little "traditional" things my mom wants done is not important. All that matters is that we are happy and that we start our lives together. I puffy heart my dad. K calls me daddy's little girl, which is true though. My sister is like my mother and I am like my father.

This has become a long rant. I can't wait for the planning to be over and done with!
