- Wedding: May 2016
My 6-years older half brother got enaged this weekend. I’d known it was coming, that he was just waiting for the custom ring to be finished before he did it. He called me on my birthday to let me know I’d have a wedding to go to some months down the line, and proposed this Saturday. I’m not really close to any of my siblings since we didn’t meet till I was already almost out of high school, and they all grew up in different states, so it’s not really bothering my ‘waiting’ I guess that he’s engaged – he’d been married very young shortly after I met him, but it didn’t last, so Im glad now that he’s about 4o hes found someone good. I guess the PMS mopey-ness is striking though, which always seems to trigger things and make me feel more stongly that I usually do, and bad emotions seem to top the list during that fun week. I’m not looking forward to attending the wedding simply because I do’t really know him, my other brother, or the bride, it’s going to be too far to drive and expensive to fly, and our shared jerk of a father will probably be there. AND this brother, in the times we do talk, always tries to dance awkwardly around asking me why I”m not married yet, and I really don’t want to go deal with that. So blarg. Had to get that out – thanks.
