Thanks! I overnighted another application. My cousin has a friend of a friend that works there and is suppose to pull it and mail it off as soon as they receive the request. Hopefully I will have my BC next week. We’re going to the court house the same day!
I called another local alterations shope that assured me they are able to do exactly what I want. They are a lot higher, but they do a lot of alterations for people at our local military base. I’m confident that I will be pleased by their work.
I checked on my petticoat AGAIN this morning and was assured it will arrive today, which is good because I have to have that on when I get the alterations done.
As far as my parents, I will love them to the end of the universe and back. I can’t make them see what I see nor can I make them feel what I feel. My fiance is the sweetest person I have ever met. We have a very colorful story, but I cannot imagine life without him in it. He’s the ying to my yand and the sugar in my coffee. Time, patience and prayer is the only hope I have for having a relationship with my parents again. I just hope we can reconnect sooner rather than later.
Oh, I searched my other shoe closet, I have 2, and found some gold sparkly heels that I wore to his brother’s wedding last year. I’ve only worn them 2-3 times since than. I prefer silver shoes, but the gold ones are a perfect height and I already know how to walk in them. So my gold heels will be my “something old” LOL
I have been stressing about way too many minor details. I know everything will work out the way it’s suppose to. My fiance’s sister-in-law’s step-mother (a mouthfull, I know) called me last night and volunteered to take a personal day off work to help me put the decorations together, decorate the building, and run any last minute errands for me. She is also going to make cake balls and do the fruit trays. I wanted to cry! I haven’t known her very long and we aren’t related, but she is going to dedicate so much of her time to help me. She is even going to call a caterer that she knows to get a discount on our food.
His mom put some money in the mail box “just because” yesterday. I called and asked her why, and she said she knows we have been running like crazy and she wanted to give us some money to help. The amount she gave us will pay for the tablecloths, serve ware, and we will still have some left over in case any last minute changes come up. I have the best in-laws EVER!
I am beyond excited! When all seems dark and lost, there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel. I guess it took me venting and hearing all of your kind words to help me realize thing’s aren’t as bad as they seem. I’m in love with a wonderful man that wants to spend forever with me. From this point on, that is all I’m going to focus on!
Thanks everyone for letting me vent!
