Shart on the Dance Floor

It’s 2am.

I have to get up early because tomorrow morning, bright and early I am meeting my bridesmaids and decorating the hall for my Jack and Jill.

All the American’s say what?

That’s a huge party that we Canadian’s throw in honour of the Bride and Groom to help them raise money and pay for their wedding.

We’re the epitome of friendship and family over here in the capital of cold; bathing in bacon and showering each other in cash.

So why the hell am I awake at 2am?

It’s not because I’m worried that my best friend will still be sick and shart her pants all over the dance floor.

Pooh on the dance floor, or an any floor, is my reality. I’m the mother of a toddler and in the trenches of potty training.

And it’s not because I’m concerned that things aren’t under control, I have amazing friends that have stepped up to the plate and are going to make it an incredible night!

My anxiety comes from something else.

Not deserving this?

No one showing up?

Feeling overwhelmed with the out pour of support and gifts we’ve received?

Perhaps it’s a combination.

We have been so lucky to have all of our family and friends rally around us and provide us with so much so that we could get married. We have so many people asking what they can do to help, where we need them, what services they can provide.

It means more than I have words for.

I am overwhelmed.

But in a good way.

A way that keeps me up at 2am thinking “wow, how did you get so lucky?”

And I am lucky.

With or without a sharty dance floor.

    You my dear are such a beautiful, strong woman. I know it’s hard to see that with the struggle and fight that goes on within you due to everything. But you are. I know this because I have seen who you are from the love, support and friendship you have given me. My world is a much better place because I can call you friend. You deserve all the love and support you have been given. You enjoy your party and be free.

    I was at a wedding once where a bridesmaid sharted, went to the party bus to screw a dude {still sharty} and went back to the dance floor. Walking around like no one knew her business.

    Why tell you this? You’re going to have a blast, you deserve this and it could ALWAYS be worse. Sharter proves it.

    I am pretty sue last night was the night and I am certain that shart or no shart the party was fantastic! Funny thing about you feeling this way… we all do. It’s a big party. A big deal. Expectations, people to entertain, things to go right and fun to be had. I don’t know many of us that wouldn’t be up at 2am. With that said I hope you have a monster hangover from all the “fun” you had and I can not wait to hear how incredible the party was!!! -LV
