It looks like we won’t be getting married on September 25, 2004. The company my father works for is shutting down their Canadian operations on December 31st of this year. That means money will be tight for my parents until he can get another job. He is optimistic but realistic. Not to many companies want to hire a 59 year-old man, no matter how good a worker he is. And since my parents want to help out as much as possible, the wedding is being put on hold. I don’t know. I can’t help but feel like things aren’t going at all like I had hoped. quanta’s parents have even offered their congratulations yet. Maybe getting married is a bad idea. But I love quanta so much.
I’m very sad. Sad for my parents, and sad for me. Everything always works out in the end though, right? And my dress will be in soon, so I suppose we could always get married anywhere. The heck with the reception and all that.
I sound horribly selfish, but I know my parents will be okay.
