|My new almond tree|
I've been busy - working on my hall bathroom, painting the walls and staining the cabinets. It was fun and rewarding to get something done!
The weather has been awesome. Trees and flowers are blooming. I even have a tinge of hayfever- the dull headache and the roof of my mouth gets itchy.
Tomorrow is our anniversary. 16 years.
Also, last Friday my son's girlfriend asked me out to lunch - just her and I. So we talked and all, and then she said she needed to ask me something. OKAY. Then all of a sudden, her eyes started pooling up with tears and then the tears started falling out from her eyes, onto her cheeks and I am thinking,
"OMG what is it?"
Then she went on to tell me how much she loves my son and wants to spend the rest of her life with him so she wanted my blessing, so she could ask him to marry her.
Whoa, times have changed.
I was cool with it - sure she can ask him. They have my blessing. I did ask her, does he feel the same way...because I would HATE to have him break her heart. She assured me, he feels the same way. So I kinda figured she asked him last night on Valentines Day but I am not certain. I guess I will have to wait to get the official word.
I was thinking back - my first husband never got on his knees to ask me. We just came to the consensus that it was the next step. My husband now asked me to marry him after a month or so and I wasn't ready. It was a couple of years later when we felt it was time. So her asking him, really isn't that much different.
Okay readers: Did you get on your knees to propose? Ladies, did your husband get on his knees?
So like I said, tomorrow is our 16th wedding anniversary and I have to say, it was a very good decision on my part. He's a wonderful man and I've never been happier and more content in my life.
