There is going to be a wedding!!
Our son called a few nights ago to ask what DH and I were doing next Thursday and Friday. He said he was sitting in his car in the Safeway parking lot and he had decided to ask his live in girl friend of 5 yrs to marry him. He had called up the court house in San Luis Obispo(happiest place in the US)and made an appointment for Friday. That is a 4 hr drive north for us and a 5 hr drive south for them. WELL OK!!! We have been waiting for this day forever so how ever we can get it---bring it on!!!
I've told you in other blogs that my future daughter in law has lived with us on and off for the past year and a half, while going to nursing school. She just passed her state exam a couple of weeks ago and starts a new job the following Monday, so he wants to squeeze it in. I've gotten to know my daughter in law pretty well over this time and she has never said she wants a big wedding. She would like to go on a great-exotic honeymoon and my son might want to have "a party"???
To say the least we are so excited!! My mom is coming up and going with us and my daughter in laws mother and sisters are going to try to make it too. We have beachfront rooms at our favorite place in Pismo. Our other son will try to come also but he just started a new job and is close to finals at SFSU.
A little back ground on the groom. He is 33, a paramedic firefighter and very independent. All of his fire buddies have warned him of marriage. They told him women change--and most often,not for the better, and he just can't imagine being with one person for ever. He does want to have children as does she, but it will be a couple of years I hope ----mainly because she is coming into this with a massive amount of debt because of her schooling.
Soooooooo Excited did I already say that???
On another note , I went in Thursday for a small fill, .50cc's and so far so good. Tighter for sure but not too tight----yet. Down 1.5 pounds today, first time in 3 months!! HURRAY!!!
