New member of the clan

And so today, I go to work. I am not really happy about it, it is after all, MY SATURDAY. On the other hand, I will be in the F and I office and it is always good to keep your skills sharp. I haven't had to use them for several years now, not this particular set, anyway, but I can handle it. Plus, it pays a couple hundred extra dollars for me...who can argue with that?

I have a new son in law. Since yesterday at four in the blessed pm. I didn't know right up until show time if they would do it, and if they were honest, I don't think they did, either. But it went off without a hitch. It was the first wedding I have ever attended at a courthouse, done by a judge. The ceremony was quite good, the judge very personable...but the temp in that courthouse had to be about 149. I nearly passed out a time or two. Brodie did the rest of me in, not wanting to be still or quiet, at Mommy and Daddy's wedding. I can't say how I feel about any of it...They certainly have their problems, daily almost. They fight, carry on...drama over the top. Then, they make up. I don't like any of it, and frankly, it hurts me, mentally and physically. They do both love their son and both are wonderful parents. Sometimes I would like to kick HIS butt. Sometimes I would like to kick HERS. Time will answer the questions, I suppose. In the meantime, there is another little wonder on the way...in two months, exactly. Yeah, life just rolls right along. I sincerely hope they can all be happy now.

I am off to the gym. This old and oh-so-tired body needs help. Happy day. :)

I wish them the best. I really believe in marriage and maybe its better to get their opinions out in the open rather than keep them in and simmering until the pot boils over. I was a one of those who held it in and it ended up making me a nervous wreck, which cleared up after I booted him out. LOLOLOLOL
Seriously though....sometimes the roads that are rough in the beginning turn out to be paved freeways at the end. Hugs to all.

Congrats and condolences. Good one Jules :)

I know the anguish you go through on this one. A big choice has been made. It might, could, should, might be just the thing. We have to think so, right? The ties that bind and all. We all want them to be very happy. As much as they can be. Congrats Janelle and Bee!

My 2 cents is to tell them you don't want to hear the drama. Only the good stuff. What, you didn't ask for my advice? You're no longer "everyone thinks I can fix it", right? Have I said too much?
