Truth on Tuesday
• Went to Utah over the weekend to meet L’s parents, family and celebrate Thanksgiving. Also officially proposed to L in front of her family, I was very nervous but it was very special and L was happy she could share this moment with her family. We are planning a July wedding and we are both very excited.
• I’m going to tell R over Christmas break while he is here, I’m also going to ask him to be my best man.
• Never thought I’d be getting married again but I knew I always wanted to try marriage one more time.
I’m at Work
Worked my normal shift Friday and then went home and put together the shelving for the closets. L has two closets in her master bathroom (she gave me one) we put in the Elfa shelving system to accommodate all of our clothes. The closets turned out great, there is no wasted space and all the clothes will fit. Goal is to be completely moved in by the end of January.
Finished the closets around 9:30, just watched tv till 11 and then came to work. I’m working 3rd shift (12-7) without any sleep (except for the unaccounted 45 mins I can’t seem to account for from 1:30-2:15 at my desk…I may have dozed) I have lunch at 3:15-3:45and plan to sleep, if you want ask me stuff and I’ll try to answer during the rest of my shift.
10 Things to “Make” besides money
After Melissa broke up with me I thought long and hard about my life, I had two choices…1 I could stay home, be sad, lonely and depressed or 2 I could get out and do things. Having done number 1 after my divorce and being severely depressed and lonely I knew I didn’t (couldn’t) go back to that again, so I number 2 it was. Two days later I met L and what happened with her I never expected it to happen. Since I met L there has not been one day we haven’t seen each other (we’ve tried to take a day off but ended up missing each other and doing something) Some people have told us we shouldn’t see each other this much, that it will get old and flame out. So far all it’s done is bring us closer together, fall in love and we’ve decided we want to spend the rest of our lives together. We’ve both have never been this happy before and we have “it”. “It” being what all couples are looking for. People still say it’s only been 2 months, the relationship is still in the newness stage and it will wear off. When I met my ex I knew she was the one after a month, no I wasn’t with her a lifetime but I was with her for 19 years. Is there a time limit we are supposed to wait before we can be in love? You can listen to friends and other peoples input or you can go with your gut feeling. I went with my gut feeling and asked L to marry me, she went with her gut and said yes.
Some may think I moved on to quickly, I don’t know if I did or not but L came into my life at that moment and I am here now. I am happy, I am in love with L and we are planning a lifetime together.
1- Tonight L and I will be installing Elfa into the closets. It’s a shelving, hanging and drawer system…totally psyched.
2- Heading of to Utah tomorrow, meeting L’s parents, sisters and daughter.
3- Seeing things clearly now.
4- Can’t believe Thanksgiving is next Thursday.
5- My life my decisions…Doesn’t mean I’m always right but I’m not always wrong either.
