Over the course of my unintentional sabbatical some exciting things happened. For starters Christian (the C man) got down on one knee, gave me something sparkly and I said yes. Meaning that we’re engaged. As in getting married and becoming one with lots of lovey dovey, mushy stuff. As in engagement photos and wedding planning and cake tasting. Truthfully, I haven’t even got to the cake tasting part but good Lord that is the thing I’m looking forward to the most. I love me a good cake.
As you can imagine things have been hectic. Somedays I feel like a crazy person running around while other days I’m totally nonchalant as in “This wedding that’s quickly approaching? No, of course it doesn’t phase me”. I’d say you’d have a 50/50 chance on who will show up on any given day. We’re also house hunting because who doesn’t love a little added chaos? I know that I sure do. We actually wrote a contract and made an offer on one so keep your fingers crossed.
Charles doesn’t know what to make of the situation, though I’m pretty sure he’s excited to have a Father. Jacqui’s response when I told her about our engagement was “Oh good, Charles won’t be a bastard anymore”… so clearly it’s something that’s been heavily weighing on him.
I promise to give more updates soon… I’ve been so brief and there’s so much going on!
