- Wedding: April 2011
Well. SO much has been going on. I don’t know where to begin. Oh, and as a warning, this is going to serve as a sort of venting for me, So, don’t say I didnt give a warning.
To start with, my grandmother, whom I loved dearly, Died two months ago. She was sick an nobody told me, cuz my dad’s side of the family is just awesome like that. (sarcasm) The drama with that is so long you just don’t want to know. My fiancee was not allowed to come home because we were not married, so my father took the oppurtunity to make things as hard as possible.
So after that disaster, my husband decided that before he left for iraq he wanted to elope. So we did. With about two days to plan everything, his stepmother stepped in and pretty much saved the day by buying us a two tiered cake and found us a little church and a preacher to marry us. I bought a silver cocktail dress and my maid of honor discovered her florist skills by mkaing me a purple bouquet and Tyler a boutiner. We told only close friends and a few family, nobody on my side of the family knew, and we married the day before he shipped out to Iraq.
The past couple months have been awful. No lie. Its been so hard on both of us but we are still making it. I stopped planning the wedding for a while. I just couldnt do it because I was so miserable and missing him so badly. But I have started again, slowly but surely. There is a strong possiblity that Tyler will be coming home earlier than planned, it could be as soon as August, or maybe sooner, we just don’t know. The oil spill off the coast of la is part of the reason, there are others that I cant talk about because of security. We just don’t know when he is comign home and that is driving us both crazy. We love each other so much though we are keeping each other same through all of this and there is no doubt we are going to make it through this. This is the hardest thing I have ever had to do, but I’m doing day by day. We both are. Skype is awesome. We talk as much as possible so that helps a little bit, also I have other army wives to talk to. I won’t go on and on about all this, but that is what has been going on for the past couple months, basically a hurricane in a jar. 😉
I just want to scream, quite honestly. But instead I’m going to study for finals and plan our wedding. By the way, Rexcraft invitations are awesome. And I have my wedding dress, and its totally gorgous. So if you are feeling crappy about things, take solace in the fact that at least you can see your fiance every day and fall sleep in his arms every night. You never know how hard it is to do without til you have to.
