- Wedding: May 2013
We officially tied the knot this weekend and I’m happy, yet sad. I got use to the rush of planning a weding. Now I feel…empty. I am so bored now!!
As far as the wedding, it was beautiful and short. The best part was seeing my oldest brother drive into the parking lot. I couldn’t contain myself! He said he wouldn’t have missed it for the world. I find myself constantly replaying the night over in my head. Even though the DJ playing the wrong processional music, I was late arriving, my petticoat kept slipping, and we forgot to toast…everyone still had a great time. My husband cried during 85% of the ceremony. It was hard to keep from laughing!
Of course, I wouldn’t be Solis2013 without some family drama interrupting my happiness. We had a Friday wedding, so I checked my kids out of school early to help prepare. Luckily, my phone died and I didn’t charge it til the next morning. We planned on going to Hot Springs for our honeymoon, but our plans quickly changed. I turned on my phone to find several calls from my mom and middle brother. Our nicely planned honeymoon turned into an hour long trip to the police station. My mom left me several voicemails saying the cops were looking for me because I stole my kids from school. She proceeded to say she contacted an attorney because she had a notarized letter saying I signed my kids over to her, which is a lie. The only letter I signed was one saying she would be helping me with them during the school year so they could enroll into an outer district school. The school in my neighborhood was rated one of the lowest in our area, so leaving them there was not an option! The front desk officer couldn’t believe the things we went through with my mom. She even left to get her sargent to make sure there were no reports against me. The sargent said they would cite my mom for making a false report, but after checking every possible database, there was no report.
My kids have called my mom every other day. She refuses to pick the kids up from school anymore, but luckily my job is able to work with me. She will no longer volunteer at the school or attend any of their school functions. Apparently I did the worse possible thing by taking my kids away from her. I told her I didn’t take them away. They call her whenever the ywant and I’m letting them spend time with her this weekend. I was told I am not capable of taking care of both kids and a new husband. She asked if they could stay with her for a while until I’m adjusted to married life. Ummm…..we’ve been living together for 2 years, what’s there to adjust?
My middle brother also left my some nasty text messages that I have yet to respond to. He was the main one pushing me to get married, until he starting kissing up to my mom. He voluntarily paid off a registration flag on my license earlier this year a week after my birthday. I told him not to, but he said I’m his litttle sister and he wanted to pay it. I offered the money to him several times, but he refused. Tony called him several times to give him the money and he refused. My brother told us money comes and goes, but a sister is forever. He even said he was paying for our limo and honeymoon. Well, his last text said I have 30 days to get him his money back. I will be at the post office first thing in the morning to mail off a money order . I’m not sure to write a note or let it be.
I was trying hard not to laugh, but he wouldn’t stop crying!! LOL
Anyway, there has been absolutely NO drama in my life since Saturday and I’m happy happy happy!!!
