The Wedding and Other Stuff


Shizammmm....I actually have the time to do an entry; a normal entry for that matter.  Terry Ann  a girlnexdoor creation made this tag for me.  What artistic style she has for just beginning PSP.  Dang, I wish I looked the the girl in that tag.

Now, I feel like a warrior lately but at least the war in JLand seems to have ceased.  Thanks to Jackie, who is a total lady, a scrappy lady for sure, but a lady.

I've been at work everyday for two weeks straight.  Someone once said that a habit is formed after three weeks so I figure after next week, this five day thingie will be resolved.  Truthfully, it is getting much, much better.  Of course, my journal and visits are suffering but I'm doing my best to visit everybody this weekend.

Now, on to my ex SIL's wedding last weekend that I wasn't invited to and now am glad I didn't.  My ex has fallen totally off the wagon and almost ruined the darned thing.  My two daughters had to put up with his ugliness plus Joey had a little bit.  I'm so proud of all three of my children for bearing the brunt of his ugly behavior and not calling attention to it so it wasn't noticed by others.  At least not the bride and groom. 

I have some pictures.  The were taken on Joey's Canon digital camera by others so didn't come out as well as if he had taken them.


        Left to right....Becky, 25; Joey 23; Megan 20.


 My kids and Baba, my ex MIL, who just adores them.


The wedding party.  The groom's son was best man.  I think he's cute but the pic is so out of focus...oh well....


Megan and her date, Ortego.  He's from Puerto Rico and is a soccer player at her university.  LOL...of course, he is "in love" with Megan but she is one smart cookie who plays it "safe" with the guys for the most part and doesn't get romantically involved.  Although, Ortego and Megan have been best friends since day one of her college experience.  He is a doll baby, though.

So, not much whining from me today.  Oh, and my BF doesn't have shingles again.  He is an anal clean freak.  He took the curtains out of my sunporch home to wash after my fly fiasco.  The foolish man soaked them in Clorox in his sink and kept swishing them with his hand and arm up to his elbow.  He had chemical burns.  They did come out clean but I swear he never learns.  He almost asphyxiated himself a couple of months ago mixing cleaning products.

I have some cleaning to do...some?  Tons.  Plus grocery shopping.  We've had two of the loveliest days in western Pa.  Sunny and close to 70.  Wish it would stay this way.

Have a good weekend!  If I miss visiting, send me snail mail and let me know because many links are in my favorites which is a total, total mess.

Your kids are beautiful!!  Great pictures.  I say good riddance to the EX and let his new wife take care of his sorry azz!  He showed up smashed at her party?? LOSER!!  I'm sure his new wifey has her hands full.  
Enjoy your weekend, Chris.

You're kids are all so good looking Chris! Lovely photos, thanks for sharing them! I have tons of cleaning to get done too! Jeannette xx

Thanks for sharing all the pics Chris.  Your kids are just gorgeous.  And I'm glad they still have a relationship with your inlaws.   And that's a little scary about your bf mixing up those chemicals and burning himself with that bleach.  Gotta keep an eye on that one.  Though I wish I had a man to clean. lol  Don't work too hard.  Big hugs and GBU, Shelly

penniepooh said...

Your kids look so great! And I must say, from seeing you in person,  you look so much younger than your ex and his wife!! :0)    Was he drunk at the wedding?  I`m glad your BF doesn`t have shingles, but....Yikes.... he better watch out for the bleach and also mixing things.
Hugs to you  xo

Hi Chris!  Absolutely BEAUTIFUL Children!!!  Oh, but I guess you are soooo tired of hearing that by now.  NOT!!!  :)  

What fight?  I missed the VIVI fight?  Oh well....maybe I should get around more often!


candlejmr said...

All of your kids are GORGEOUS (especially that Megan, she is stunning!) and, I hate to say this, but your ex looks loaded in this picture too.   And his "wife" looks way too she is putting on her HAPPY face for the camera.   I'm thinking it's not all rosy with those two.  (Dont you like how I completely analyze things from one lousy picture???  lol)

Chemical burns?  WOW.  That guy is one mean cleaning machine!  Can he come to my house?  I could keep him busy (CLEANING! lol) for days!!

shermeen0621 said...

That's an awesome tag Terry Ann made for you, I think she's learnt so much in PSP so quickly. It blows my mind but makes me want to take it up at the same time!

You have such good looking kids, very warm eyes so that must come from you. your daughters are beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing the pictures with us.

the pictures are great. Your kids are so cute. Now ortego isn't bad either. Love that tag. That's awesome. Good for your kids for not getting involved and taking the high road.

heathermarie3073 said...

I don't know why this is the first time I've been here, maybe because I just found it on Shelly's journal, lol.  But I have been to your tag journal countless times and if I paid more attention I probably would have found a link to this one.  I have no excuse, lol.  Loved the pic's of your kids, they are really handsome/beautiful young adults.  Ok, done buggin ya, lol
xoxo, Heather
