Current Events

I gave you a little- but long update on past happenings, but also wanted to fill you in on some current stuff. 

My request to be moved to Ohio has been approved and I will be moving to Wright Patterson AFB, Dayton, OH on the 28th of March.  I will be living in the dormitories at first, but will buy a car right away so that I can travel back and forth to Mt. Gilead and help my parents take care of the house and let my mom have a break from taking care of my dad. This will also give me an opportunity to spend quality time with him in the few months we are led to believe he has left.

In early June BJ will bring a U-haul with all his stuff and we will begin looking for a house to rent.  Are wedding date is June 20th 2009.  We are working on getting the invitations made, but should have them by the end of this week.

I have updated my myspace to say engaged, but still do not have my ring as BJ has not had the opportunity to give it to me just yet. However he was able to meet my parents when I went home on emergency leave. He traveled straight from Africa when his trip was over.  At the end of his visit with us he asked my dad for my hand in marriage, but he didn't have the ring with him because he had been in Africa. 

May be he will ask me to marry him and give me the ring two days before the wedding. Lol.

It's ok, as long as I get to be with my love. 

Wedding plans are coming along nicely we have booked most of the things we need except we still need a DJ and a florist.

We are having fun planning together and are expecting to have a great time at our Party(wedding).

I hope to see you girlies soon.  Love you both. Tea time is so near, yay!!!!!
