- Wedding: July 2010
T and I went to dinner at one of our local fave restaurants (Sugo). Tongiht we’re going to its sister restaurant in Decatur btw!
Right before getting to T’s house and embarking on our dinner plans, my mom called and informed me her ex boyfriend called her yet again and is planning on moving back to her area. (Crebre are you listening to this?)
He then told my mom he’d settled a lawsuit concerning some property he owned and that all was great on his end financially and that he wanted to marry her yet again…this is like the fifth time he’s said it ok? And that she wouldn’t have to work and he’d get her a rock…blah blah blah. Mom is once again as giddy as a 1950’s teenager. Scary!
So now we’ve got the following dynamics going on:
- T and I getting engaged soon
- T and I getting married late next summer
- My mom possibly getting engaged soon and possibly getting married next summer.
T and I were discussing it and my bff calls and I tell her (She loves T and we’re all friends and he loves to hear her opinions) the whole hot mess.
My bff is worried that my mom is going to want to go through this whole thing with me..mind you, my mom had a bit of a mid life crisis imho after my dad passed away 10 years ago and she reconnected with her old high school boyfriend after..35 years??? Like instead of being my mom she is going to want to have me plan everything for her while I’m planning mine (my sis and I are great party planners!) and basically hijack my whole experience.
My mom has ALREADY asked me to design her Christmas cards this year for her, and on the photo is her puppy..a show dog (Aussie) and her pride and joy. So yea, I could totally see having to plan TWO weddings next year. I love my mom. She’s sweet now most of the time. But it’s like talking to one of my friends when I talk to her and NOT my mom that used to kiss my boo boo’s when I was little or read me a story before bed. That “mommy” person has been gone for quite a while and I want her back!!! Yes I’m freakin’ 40 years old, but you still need your parents for the big events in life.
Her bf is a nice guy. But we haven’t been his biggest fans due to the number of times the man has walked down the aisle. Calling him an encore groom is a bit of a stretch. This would be his FOURTH marriage ok? FOURTH. Granted, he’s chased and dated my mom much longer than most of his marriages survived btw, but i’m not at peace with this.
My sweetie, T then said during this convo..”Geez I hope that nothing crazy happens during our ceremony or reception. Like her boyfriend or fiance getting up and asking to be married too on the same day or something crazy like that.”
My bff via phone and T agree that my life in the next few months could very well be the basis of a stupid romantic comedy called “Daughter/Mother of the Bride”. Is Steve Martin available for work now? I’ve got a great storyline for him.
