Its cold, gray & raining today. At least the wind has mellowed out a little, though. It blew so loud & hard last night it kept waking me up. I'm so tired today. I don't know if its lack of sleep, if I'm coming down with something or its PMs, all I know is that I want to sleep.
Rhi & I got into a minor argument at the school this morning, she was panicking over something & asked for my help, so the minute I started helping her she acted like I touched her inappropriately & yelled at me. So. That was fun. We got it straightened out through text messages before the day was too old, though. She starts training at her new job this evening, I hope it goes well for her, but that she won't stay if she hates it.
Anyhow.. here's a Wedding/Marriage Meme & then I'm gonna nap.
1. Where/How did you meet?
At my house, in Pueblo, Colorado. A member of our gaming group invited him & some of his friends over to game. I had gotten married to the EA about a week before & knew the minute I saw Troy what a huge mistake I'd made.
2. How long have you known each other?
16 years on March 31.
3. How long after you met did you start dating?
2 months. I know that sounds weird, considering I said I'd just gotten married. The ex was cheating on me with my best friend since before we'd gotten married, I was just too stupid to see it until they came right out & admitted it to me in May. I was already in love with Troy, but I was behaving myself & not acting on my feelings. We were, however, getting to be very close friends & he was taking over the spot that my best friend had left when she started sleeping with the ex. When I kicked the ex out, I told Troy how I felt & we've been together since.
4. How long did you date before you were engaged?
We started our relationship on May 29 & were engaged on July 11.
5. How long was your engagement?
2 months. We got married right after my divorce was final.

15 1/2 years.
