- Wedding: October 2013
I am going to school to be a health advisor and already have a part time job doing so but, I have never left home. My FI and I had been together for 4.5 years (high school sweethearts) and have been engaged for almost a year and a half now! My FI is in the military and we just celebrated his one year in service a couple months ago. I have a big family and we are all located within a hour drive of each other. I have been with everyone my whole life and even chose to go to school nearby in order to be home. My mother and step dad divorced my freshman year and my mom played the vanishing game on me and my siblings. She is back now but I spent two years caring for the kids as if they were my own. Today is my last day before I go visit my FI for two months and the kids are a wreck! I will be back before the summer is over but they just don’t want me to leave…The oldest is 15 and he hasn’t openly said he is sad about the wedding but, his misbeahving and attitude are sign enough. The younger two are only seven and eight and this is really tramatic on them.
Yesterday we packed up everything I own that I want stored at my FMIL’s house and the room is so empty. I found my sister and brother (the younger two) crying on my bed saying they want to live with me and my FI. I will get them every summer but leaving them is going to be the hardest thing I ever do. They are running errands with me today and tomorrow they will go with to say good bye at the airport. This is a short vacation but it feels like a preview of my life without the little squirts.
I had to leave someday but this is so much worse then going off to college. At least we have until the wedding.
