- Wedding: May 2011
I just wanted to take a second to thank you for all that you help me with…FI and I moved to Fort Lauderdale, FL last year far far away from both of our families. FI works offshore on an oil rig, and although he typically works 14on/14off, he recently got promoted (to one step below Captain – woohoo! We’re almost there! He “drives” the rig by the way, they are boats underneath it all) so he got sent off the coast of China to a rig that is finishing being built. Anytime you are sent to international waters, your schedule is 28on/28off. So he left on Feb 10, and he wont return until Mar 10. He will be part of the crew that drives that new rig back to the gulf waters. I accept his job, it provides so much for us and our future family, so I try not to focus too much on the loneliness. I focus on wedding planning and our new home that is my constant obsession, and FI and I do get to skype every day and email constantly.
The part that sucks is that I am a billion miles away from my family, my mom, my sister, my friends/bridesmaids/etc, and I am planning a wedding! I need opinions and thoughts on things, and sometimes it’s hard to not have any second opinions. And with FI gone too, I just honestly don’t know what I’d do without this site. Everyone is so helpful, and I have gotten so many great ideas from you. It’s really filled a void for me:)
SO thank you for taking the time to help me plan my wedding, when I know that you are all knee-deep in planning your own:) It means a lot.
