Mardi- I L.O.V.E that song! So cute!!!!! Glad your enjoying your lessons, what a nice way to spend time together!
lets elope- Those photo frames sound like a such a sweet idea. Hun I'm sorry its making you feel sad, I know it will be hard for you to leave them behind
Try to put a real positive spin on it though.....just think of all the time you and your DH will have together....how special it will be for you two after all the sacrifices you've made as parents, and are making on that day. Just some time alone, to really concentrate on each other...having that time and moment shared just between the two of you will strengthen your relationship and bond, and I bet you'll feel like new people when you return to your boys and continue on
I didn't know quite how to word it all, but I hope it helps a bit
Well, I've had my first wedding "issue" (with only 6 weeks to go
). My brother (we have a very shaky relationship, due to him, not me) had offered months ago to drive me on the day, which meant a lot, but seemed a bit to good to be true. But for the whole time he's been involved, helped get the ribbon for the car, keen to video the day for us etc etc. He lets me down a lot, constantly, since I was little (so much history, which when told makes this little story seem much more worse), and we thought for the first time he had woken up to himself a bit and wanted to earn our respect back, but no. He has pulled one of his turnarounds, and let us know (through my mum) that if it was raining on the day, he wouldn't take me in the car I wanted (brand new white holden sedan, done up show car), but in his other car (which is still nice a really nice new show car- but it's a red ute, and I just don't want it on the day, we would've hired someone if he hadn't offered). The reason being the road is "gravel" and he's too worried the car will get stones and mud flicked up and chipping it. Nevermind that the owner of the place has a newish corvette that he drives on the road in all weather, and the "gravel" is only for about 5metres of road, the rest is cement! Everyone knows what he has done and how he is towards me, and they have all hit the roof. FH cannot stand him due to the things he has done over the years, and doesn't want him there on the day...but as for me, I lost respect and any love for him a long time ago, and have been expecting this, but still deep down hoped for once it wouldn't happen. Not really bothered about the "no car" thing as we have plenty of people now offering to drive us, and we also have enough $$$ to hire a car, it's more just that the whole wedding planning etc has been fine until now, and of course it had to be him that m*cked it up. And also the fact that he was too scared to tell us himself, as he knows FH doesn't take his bullsh*t....as it was I had to convince FH to not ring him then and there or go around there, as he just isn't worth the energy, and I just want to focus on enjoying the next few weeks and the lead up. Having said that though, I did have a little cry to myself when no-one was around, as it was just a bit much.
Sorry for the long sob, I don't usually post stuff like this on here, I think it's bothered me more then I am admitting to myself, and I needed to get it out.
