It was in a location about a couple hours away from home, probably a little under a couple hours in no traffic.
But because it was on Labor Day weekend, I have a feeling that contributed to the traffic.
I was driving the whole time.
Mainly, getting through SF, taking highway 1, took about 1.5 hours! The traffic was insane.
We left the house a little after 11 am, and got to our hotel at 2:30 pm. That's almost 3.5 hours of nonstop driving for me.
That really shook me up. I wasn't expecting such a long drive. I was also driving under pressure for a lot of the drive, because we were afraid that we were going to be late to the wedding. I also didn't drink any water the whole time that I was driving. I think I was too preoccupied with driving, stressed, and forgot to.
Once we got to the hotel, we had a few minutes to change. We waited around for the shuttle for some time (it ended up leaving 30 minutes later than we thought it would). Then it was about a 30 minute (somewhat windy) ride in the shuttle to the wedding location.
By the time I was actually on my feet again and done with transportation, I was in a very weird state.
I think I just really needed to lay down and recover for a little bit. But I was at a big wedding, and there was lots of excitement and energy going on all around me.
So I was just feeling very physically weird the whole time.
Now I'm back home. I took a 2 hour nap. I'm beginning to feel back to normal.
I don't know how other people do it. I really don't. But I don't think I physically deal with situations that are a combination of physically tiring and stressful very well.
