Hi all,

 

A few months ago, in a drunk stupor, I announced that I was getting married.

 

Don't know what the hell came over me, but yesterday (26 May), god help me, I actually went through with it.

 

It was a long journey to get from accepting the proposal, to saying my vows.  But we did it.

Was it worth the effort?  All the sleepless nights.  All the arguments, and stress. 

 

Yes, it was.

 

Just to give you an example.  Our original officiant went on vacation and didn't tell us.  As some of you know I live in Quebec.  The government requires that a notification of marriage has to be published for 20 days prior to the wedding, on a government website.  She gets back two days before the deadline, tells us it will cost us $1000.00 for her to perform the ceremony, or even before she'll fill out the necessary paperwork

I'm at work when my husband gets the call.

He panics, and calls my supervisor. 

For those of you who don't know, I'm a member of the Canadian Armed Forces.

That sends me running to see the padres. 

The original padre I speak to, cannot perform a same sex marriage.

Which we understand, and not only do we accept that, we respect it.  I'll ask you to do the same.

She did talk to her Chain of Command, and find one who could.

Luckily, his family knew a judge who could perform the ceremony.

However, she wasn't authorized to marry.  That can take four months!

However, the judge knew who to talk to.

On the day of the deadline, at very short notice, my Cplc was able to give me the day off.  I'm in downtown Montreal, at Service Quebec, pleading my case to a clerk.

I pulled all the stops. 

We were very lucky.  We managed to squeak in under the deadline.  We had our marriage published, and authorization granted to our new officiant.  

 

In any case.  We survived it.  I am now married to the most wonderful man on Earth.

 

It was amazing, I was in full uniform, and I cried a lot.  The speeches we gave moved people to tears, including some members of the Legion who accidentally crashed our wedding.

 

The ceremony and reception and the party were held at the local branch of the Royal Canadian Legion.  They gave us a really good deal.

 

If you fine people would like to see the pictures, I will more than happily post them.

 

Thanks for reading, and thank you in advance for your congratulations.

 

Now, if I can only get used to the feeling of this ring....

Congrats HS, much happiness to you and your husband! You will get used to the feeling of the ring, in fact you will feel something is amiss whenever you take it off. It was the same with me :)

Sorry busy week.  I'm now sitting in a hotel room in Edmonton on my HHT.

 

Thanks for all the well wishes.

Hubby knows about most of you. 

 

It's going to take me a bit to post some pics, that is if you really want to see my ugly mug...LOL.

He's handling all the tech stuff.  Yes, considering the pics were taken with digital cameras and are on the internet, I consider that tech stuff.

 

Next big hurdle for the two of us is the move to Edmonton.

What is HHT?

 

Sorry, lapsed into jargon again.

A HHT is a House Hunting Trip.  

 

When we get posted to a new base, part of the process is a House Hunting Trip.  Which means, BGRS (Brookfield Global Relocation Services), pays for a trip to our new area to find some where to live. 

Which we managed to do today.

This is essential, as when I get back to Quebec, I have to put in my paperwork with F&E (Furniture and Effects), so they can make arrangements to move our stuff to our new house.   They (F&E), can't  do that, until I have a place to live.

Yes, Sister Midnight one heck of a lot of tasks that have to be done.  Most of it complex and confusing with me hoping that everything goes smoothly.  

I have to shield hubby from the worst of it.  

That because he has Asperger Syndrome.  I know his anxiety level is off the charts.  He's found some things in Edmonton that has caught his attention, which I'm actively encouraging him to get involved in.  He likes computer stuff and technical stuff, along with arts and crafts.  We found a Maker's Club which he has shown an interest in.

He's shown tremendous courage in the face of it all.    

You asked about the honeymoon.  That is on hold until we get the move completed.  When we get some money saved up, we are planning on going to Disneyland.  It's something he's always want to do.  It seems like a nice spot.  I've been thinking about going as well.   

 

Argus, I'm glad you (and it seems a portion of IRON), are enjoying the story.  I'm glad to share it with you.  I'm going to share some pictures, as soon as I get the link.  I think they are being put on Google Drive.  Like, I said, I don't know that much about computers.  I know how to use the programs I need to use at work, and that's about it.

I'm very happy.  I haven't been this happy for a very long time.  I have the love of a wonderful person in my life.  Someone I get to come home to each and every single day.  I love him with all my heart.

Isn’t that a wonderful feeling- to know you have a partner in life?! You certainly deserve it! I love knowing hubby is there for me and I love being there for him. It sounds like you have the kind of relationship that will go deeper and deeper, and get even sweeter with time. I’m glad you are willing to share about yourself, it makes me feel good!

Still working on those pics for all of you.  I'm sorry I haven't logged in lately.  Just trying to get everything in order for our move across the country.

 

@Sister Midnight:  Thank you for your kind words.
