PAST~~~~ I’m a small town girl born, raised, and still living in the same close-knit, gossip magnet, everybody knows everybody, wonderful community. I used to think I was too much for this Mayberry look a like place, but it’s funny how love changes everything.
My parents were normal, okay, not really. My mom was 16 when she got pregnant with me, and my dad was 21. Yes, things were very different back then. They met while talking on the CB radio. A few months later, they found out about me. I actually attended my mom’s graduation. I guarantee not many can say that, or they just don’t due to embarrassment.
A couple of years later, my sister came along. She definitely wasn’t normal, still isn’t! One example, she crawled under a cabinet to eat rat poison. The poison control center said she may experience seizures, vomiting, rash, and diarrhea. Well, nothing ever happened, she acted exactly the same. And so on, our family was quite normal up until my mom discovered my dad had been having an affair with a younger woman. My mom of course, goes loco for a week, then decides to sleep with some guy she works with to get back at my dad. During this time, I was 17 years old, my sister was 15. Hence, you can imagine the complete shock when my mom announced she was pregnant! To make a long story short, paternity test revealed the baby was in fact my dad’s. Therefore, adding to my memorable senior year, a new baby sister.
She was born a few months after I graduated high school. And a year after that, my parent’s finally decided that after 18 years together, and 3 daughter’s; they were getting divorced.
PRESENT~~~ Are you ready for a big mind-blowing relationship status? Well, here goes…. My ex-husband, father of my children, have been in a relationship, living together as a family for about 3 years now. 😮 Boom, there it is.
And what lead up to my present relationship status….
We had our first date my freshman year of high school, he was a junior. I was pretty, smart, and preppy. He was cute and country as corn. I never even saw him at school until our blind date which was set up by me friend because she liked his friend. But nonetheless, I went out with him. He was really sweet, and I have to admit, his cowboy boots were quite hot on him. By the way, at that point, I had never owned a pair of cowboy boots. As I said before, Mayberry was not my idea of a life. On our 2nd date, we were involved in an accident. There was no drinking, it was just wet roads, and over correcting the vehicle that caused that nightmare. I won’t go into details, but my friend was paralyzed from the waist down. I don’t think I’ll ever forgive my self for being able to walk away. That’s all for now about that….
Well, he and I dated for about 7 years. We had a few teenage break ups along the way, but it was without a doubt love, the real kind. We were married for almost 10 years, had 3 wonderful daughters, then we sadly divorced.
Mr. Phenom and I have been together again for almost 3 years now. Do we hear wedding bells ringing once again in our future? I guess we will see…
FUTURE~~~~ To be continued at a later date 🙂
