So my father met Brenda in August of this year. *remember that date, it becomes important later* H has been spending the weekends with her at her house in Pineville or in Springfield. No, not at my house. No one comes into my house. It is my sanctuary & quiet place. So to be perfectly honest no one comes to my house. That is why she isn’t staying with us.
This last weekend she came down here to spend with Dad. We went to the Titanic museum & the Shepard Of The Hills show in Branson. I had a blast but the best part was getting to see the Shepard of the Hills play again.
These two people get a long very well. They do act like they are teenagers in love & sometimes *if not all the time* drive me up the wall. I am not a gushy pda type of person. I don’t like watching people be gushy & kissie etc. These two do it. I can see my future is going to be interesting. *sigh*
They had been talking about getting married. So no surprise that they were going to. The surprise came when Dad called me yesterday & informed me that Brenda had a 1/2 caret engagement ring. How did I handle it? Not good. I hung up on Dad & refuse to take the calls for about 15 minutes. It would have been ok if he hadn’t put me on speaker phone with Brenda. I do not handle surprises well. Definitely, not in front of people who I don’t know that well.
So do I approve of this marriage?
Yeah, but then I will do a lot of things to make sure Dad is happy. My only issue is that they haven’t known each other very long. I don’t know her hardly at all. But so far I like her. She makes Dad happy so that works for me. As long as my needs are met I am fine. Don’t worry, Dad has a long list of things I must have in the new house, lol.
So what does the future hold?
Apparently, I get to plan the wedding with Desara. This is going to be an experience. I don’t do weddings & never even had a part in one other than when I was a child. I have no idea what to do or how to start. I also get to uproot myself out of my family home *been there since 1983* & move into the city. Yep, this country girl is going to move to the small town. *she is going to go crazy with all the people* We also get to merge two household animals into one. It is going to be a zoo. She has two dogs & two cats that will be coming. We have two inside dogs & one outside dog that will be coming. The kicker? Our inside dogs are paper trained, hers are trained to go outside. She has a pitbull mix & bichon. They both are inside/outside dogs. Our Rowan (australian Shepard, blue heeler, beagle, border collie mix) has never been inside before. Yep, this is going to be interesting. We may have to give Rowan to another family so she can be on a farm & not in the city *heart breaks*. We will cross that bridge when we get there.
When is this happening?
Sometime next year they say. Though if she sells her house we may move into the new one together first. I am guessing that it will be May or June for the wedding. I have a long time to plan, but I want the majority of it planned soon so I can put it on the back burner & then pick it up when it is time to iron out the details.
All in all, I can’t find any reason to put my foot down & tell Dad no so it is going to happen. Now if I can just stop feeling guilty for hanging up on him & him thinking I am not ecstatic for him.
So you all can look forward to wedding posts & me griping a lot, lol.
