unexpected: surprise marriage

No.  No worries.  I didn’t up and get married in my minor absence from the interblags.  However, my being single, um.. well… you’re still going to have to wait for more on that.

Last night I got a text message from my brother… I didn’t think much of it.  Timmy generally texts me at random times because he’s bored.  So I didn’t answer.  This morning I got back with him.  He just wanted to let me know that he was in Tennessee.  Um.. Ok… Nice to know… Why?  “I’m getting hitched.”  Ok, crazybrothersaywhat?!

Yep.  My brother and his girlfriend eloped in Tennessee today.  You should also probably know that Timmy got his divorce papers a few weeks ago.  He had been seeparated for a couple years, and dating Steph for a while now… but still.  This was a shock to me.  Given that both of them had already gone through the big wedding ceremony previously, they just wanted this to be a small celebration just for the two of them.  Their kids weren’t even present.

In talking with my mom and grandma, it seems that all of us are generally happy for him.  We all wanted to be sure he really wanted this and wasn’t rushing into it… but well, as long as my Timmers is happy, then I’m happy.  Lil G (my niece) really likes Steph and her kids, so well, I’m looking forward to get to know her.

I assured my mom that I wasn’t going to do anything like that though.  I want the big party and the dress.  Not sure which I want more.  Probably going to go with the big party with all my friends, family, and the person I love.  However, don’t get excited.  I’m not thinking marriage right now.  I’m just enjoying things one day at a time.

So… congrats Timmy & Steph!
