Overwhelmed

Argh! There is so much to do, and I’m not even sure where to begin. I’ve surfed through more wedding sites then I thought could possibly exist. I’ve read three books about weddings in the past week. I’ve bought a wedding planner which currently has no planning going on in it. I’m getting no where very quickly. It would be wonderful if quanta actually was trying to help. Instead he avoids all wedding talk or just nods his head. *sigh*

Things to do:

  • pick a date
  • determine the number of guests (under 75, I hope!)
  • day or night?
  • elope!

Good Things Come in Threes

This past week as really good to me. On Sunday night, at 11:40pm, quanta asked me to marry him. I am so very, very happy that we are engaged. And to top it off, he gave me the most beautiful diamond and emerald ring I have every seen.

The second good thing was getting back to work. I’ve been unemployed since I left my assistant manager job at Electronics Boutique last June. (It’s a bit of a long story about way.) I’ve finally found a retail job I think I can do without my brain falling out of my ear. It’s only part-time, but that’s okay. My quest to find a job that uses my education continues, but without much hope.

And the third good thing… well… I hit 500 posts on Aeclectic Tarot forum. Okay, it isn’t as great as the others, but I can use my own pretty like icon now.

My mom also came down for a visit this past week. She was almost as excited as I am about me being engaged. Maybe more so! We had a nice visit, and I was very glad to see her. But between her visit, my new job, and reading every wedding book I can get my hands on, I haven’t had time for much else. This week, hopefully today, I will get a few more things posted on the site.

quanta’s Mom

Last night quanta called his mom to let her know that we are engaged. She didn’t approve, which really comes as no surprise. She thinks we aren’t ready, that we don’t have enough money, etc. Sometimes I get really annoyed with the emphasis that his family places on money. We are just a few years out of university, and already quanta makes more money then my mom and dad combined. Sure, we come from two different social classes, but money isn’t everything.

Anyway, listening to quanta’s end of the phone conversation, I was left feeling like some sort of gold digger. She seems to think that I am taking advantage of her only son, and doesn’t realise that we really do love each other. I wonder if us being in love is important to her at all. I am really very upset about all of this. If his mother doesn’t approve, she really can make my life difficult, or at least try too.

At least now we have a good idea that they won’t help us with the wedding itself. I can start planning things based on that.
