I've been trying to stay positive, what, with all the negative crap I've been dealing with lately. It's been rough, but I am certainly trying. Break through on the bad news front though...kinda. I got a HUGE order for wedding invitations...should put a little extra cash in my pockets here at the end of the month...I am just going to be folding and cutting and stuffing and tying and punching and printing for a long ass time. Seriously...who needs 350 invitations?! Oh well, it's money in my pocket and another invite I can add to my portfolio.
I make invitations, by the way. If you didn't know. Nothing overly crazy with a printing press or anything, but they are custom made an guaranteed that no one else will ever have your invitations.
Kevin asked me what I thought about him joining either the National guard reserves or another branch of the military reserves. I don't know how I feel about this. He is 28. He doesn't handle authority very well...or at all. I had to be honest with him. I told him I thought he would suck at it. I don't think he has the personality for it and that I think he has a romanticized view of the military. I don't think I could handle him doing it. He is already a cocky asshole, yeah, it would only get worse. I think it would tear our marriage apart. He is a jealous man and I can tell you, he wouldn't make it through the boot camp without thinking I was cheating on him...that is just how he is. He states that that wouldn't happen, that he has never worried about me cheating on him (Lord knows I've never given him any reason to think this) but he would still think it. I wouldn't be able to handle him being gone. He would end up infantry...I can already tell this. Don't get me wrong, he can be smart, but he doesn't have a lot of follow-through and he is handy with a gun...put two and two together and you have the front-line, boy. I think I may have hurt his feelings, but this affects me too. Damn it, I gave up medical school for him, he can give up this for me. Was I too harsh? I don't know. What do you think?
It's "friday" today. I have a three day weekend. I am excited to sleep in in the am. I am excited to see friends. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend as well!


  1. Dave talked to me once about enlisting. I told him I would leave him.

    I don't want that life

  2. Not too harsh at all. If he were to enlist he's not the only one joining - just the only one choosing to.

    Happy 3 day weekend!!

  3. Marriage is a partnership sister and mutual decisions are made. If this was the life path he wanted, it's too late. I hate sounding like I'm shooting down someone's dreams, but you know him better than anyone in the world. You called it dead on in my opinion. He'll get over it, but it doesn't make it any easier right now. Hang in there, soon he'll want to be a pilot or fireman or world traveler . . .it's what guys do. Tanner thinks about leaving his profession all of the time and I sometimes do to. It's human nature I guess. Have a nice long weekend and now that I know you make invitations I'll spread the word. I've still got plenty of unmarried friends out there that would use you for sure.

  4. you aren't being harsh. you are affected by everything he does. i couldn't do it. i'd go beserk if Nunz joined the military!

    did not know you made wedding invites...but that is so cool!!
