Onto the Next Chapter...

Guess what??  I am sooo happy!  I have been moping around on this blog for the past several months.  But during that time, when I wasn't sulking about the Enginerd, a funny thing happened...  I started seeing someone very seriously.  This is someone that I have known for sometime, but really only as friends. I don't have a good alter-ego name for him, so I am going to call him El Director.

During the summer when I was going through a very rough time, El Director was really a great friend.  My family is not in the area, and I had just started a new job...  With all of the other things going on in my life, I felt very alone.  And the relationship began to progress...

He has 2 children and they get along great with my kids...  Actually his oldest daughter is the same age as my daughter - so there is little competition there because as you all know little girls are MEAN!  His younger daughter idolizes my son - they are so cute...  She loves to play XBox with him, and he is so happy to have a willing opponent!

A few weekends ago, we went to the Heinz History Center in Pittsburgh with all 4 kids.  This is truly my favorite museum in Pittsburgh!  It is ALL Pittsburgh!  And soooo cool!  We hadn't taken the kids there before, so this was their first visit, and they all seemed to really enjoy it.

The museum was more crowded than normal because of a Vatican Exhibit, and El Director was getting annoyed.  After we went through the entire museum, I could tell it was time to go - the kids were getting hungry; there was a lot of noise with all of the people; El Director looked exasperated!  So we were all standing together talking about the museum, and El Director asked the kids what they thought...  They all said they really liked the museum.  Then El Director asked them what they thought about having a wedding at the museum, and they thought that would be a great place for a wedding.  Then he turned to me and asked me if I would like to have our wedding at the museum!!! And he got out a little blue box, and showed all of the kids our wedding rings.

I am not normally an emotional person, but I began to tear up. The kids were so happy. El Director and I are so happy!

I know alot of you are thinking that I have gone completely nuts!  Maybe I have...  Whatever... I am happy!  I am crazy in love!  I am onto the next chapter now...

This is fantastic. There's nothing like a new man in your life who shows you that you're all women. Congratulations! It's really good to hear the smile on your face as I read this!!!!

Nuts? Maybe a little. :-)
But as I am sure El Director knows, life is short, so why sit around and wait for "enough" time.

Can I be a flower girl?!

Congratulations to you both.

Thank you for sharing the proposal story - what a great story! I am so happy for you and "El Director" :). It says a lot that he can manage to totally surprise you that way. My husband still has that affect on me after nearly 18 years together. True love is a blessing.

OMG HOW DID I MISS THIS? WHAT THE OMG!!!

YAY YOU!

Is that enough capital letters? I'm sufficiently chastized for being a terrible blog friend.

Please forgive me and also tell me where to mail your wedding gift. :) HUGS TO YOU
