Wedding in 6 days
Hope you all had a good weekend. I have no clue why this is underlined, but..whatever. Sometimes my computer has a mind of its own.
What I want to blog about today is "the first kiss"...do you remember your first kiss? Believe it or not my first kiss was from my husband. I was about 14 and he kissed me and just about lifted me right off the ground! We used to just sit around and kiss kiss kiss. Those were the days. I went with my husband all through high school. We shared a locker, he walked me home from school everyday. We went to all the dances together. We would break up and we would make up. He graduated a year ahead of me. He went to the service right after he graduated and since I was still in my senior year of high school and going to all the school functions and running with my friends I started dating. No one seriously, although I did date one guy for about 6 months. But I have to say I was having the time of my life. I stayed out late with my friends and had a good time! When I graduated I was having a super time that summer...I was out late and slept in till noon. ( My Dad kept looking through the employment ads in the paper, but I was finishing up Cosmetolgy School. I went for 5 hours a day. 1pm till 6 pm...perfect hours!
And then one morning the phone rang early and it was my boyfriends Mother ( the one I went with all through school). She just wanted to tell me he would be home that night!!!!! He and I were not writing to each other at all by then. I knew it wouldnt take long for him to find out I was dating in this town! I went to his parents that night b/c I did want to see him. He had been gone for a year. His brother had gone to the airport to get him. When he walked in the door and I saw his face I thought " Oh man, what have I done?".."and how am I going to explain it ?" We were at his familys for a while and then he took me home. We had a rec room in the basement so we went down there..he started kissing me and I was so nervous b/c I knew I had to tell him. So I did. It was his fault too b/c he didnt write . I had an engagement ring during my senior year of high school, but somehow through our letters we got into it and I took it off. We probably got into it over him not writing! At first he was very upset with me...( I knew he would be). But we talked and decided it was in the past and we really did love each other. Thats when he told me he was going back to Viet Nam for a second tour. He said he wanted to marry me but he was afraid I wouldnt be faithful. I promised him I would never cheat if I was married. ( And I didnt). So 6 days later we were married. My Mother always said she was going to write a book on how to plan a wedding in 6 days. We were busy! But it was a beautiful wedding, we put an announcement in the paper and it was open Church and the Church was full! I had a beautiful wedding gown and we even got a photographer on such short notice...imagine doing that these days. We went on our honeymoon and when we came back a few days later he left again. And he did write this time! I never went out partying again with my friends, I became interested in learning how to cook, we had bought a new trailer ( yes we were trailer trash) lol. I lived in the trailer till he got home. I didnt work, getting a job never entered my mind. He was gone 8 months this time. I still remember going to get him at the airport when he came home, I was so excited!!! It was so great to have him back. He was being stationed in Ft Bragg, NC and I was going with him. So we left our brand new trailer at home and moved into a crappy little trailer off base in NC. I called it a camper. We didnt know how to work the furnace, I had never seen one like it before. After a week of going to bed in my coat I told him get it fixed or Im going to Ohio. While we were there I got pregnant. I threw up everyday. We had no a/c when the weather got warmer. I just wanted to go home to my nice air conditioned trailer. We went home in July and I had my baby at home September 3. Not at home as in my house....in my hometown...lol. As I write this it seems like a long time ago....but yet it seems like yesterday. And I guess it all came from that first kiss that lifted me right off my feet!
Lets Talk.. Catch at 1:28 AM
