Ange and I attenede her cousin's wedding on Saturday evening. We took Maizey with us because this is what the Portuguese do. It was a great time. Maizey had lots of fun dancing with her cousins, aunts and uncles. There were several comments about how much Mai looks like Angela. I love that! Everybody knows there is no biological link, but they insist that they look alike.
Ange and I haven't got too far with planning our own wedding. We aren't in a hurry to get married, but will within the next two years. Truth be told, there is just too much "up in the air" right now to be making decisions.
We are considering a few options though. Destination wedding? Wedding up north? Simple ceramony with witnesses only - followed by a BBQ in the yard?
We know however that we at this point don't want "traditional".
We don't want to do formal. I know a lot of people enjoy dressing up in their best and most glamorous clothes, but it's just not us. What matters to us is that we want to have a good time and remember the day!
We have some really fun ideas that we want to incorperate and are really hoping they come to fruition.
Another thing we need to consider is cost. We don't want to overspend. It's an important day, but just one day. It doesn't make sense to us to spend a lot on just one day.
Daycare search is going alright. I've contacted a couple and set up meetings.
Had a great feeling about one daycare, the woman was very friendly and very open to gay parents. She however only has very limited hours available, so likely won't work out.
Thought it was a sign when I found a daycare that was being run in the home my mom grew up in and was my grandma and grandpa's home for a lot of my life. I drove past one day to look at the place only to find that it was abandoned and the notice on the door indicated the occupents had failed to pay their mortgage. :( guess they aren't a great day care!
I'm sure things will work out.
Secretely I want the house to be put up for sale so I can go have a look at it. It makes me lonesome to drive by and see it empty.
