SIGH OF RELIEF!!!
UPDATE 3:00 p.m……Go here to see Bethany’s welcome home message to Ethan.
Here’s Beth’s latest picture. I like it. I might have a biased opinion.
Some of you are not going to understand this, but Ethan will He should be home soon.
Count ’em….21 cans…..
Welcome home, Ethan! We love you!
Did you know that Ethan was the 3rd most popular boy’s name for 2006?
It’s a little after midnight and it is pouring down rain. The front that dropped all the snow in Colorado is making its way down here and mixing with the warm air. It’s been running in the 70’s here during the day.
UPDATE 1:20 p.m…….I’ve gone back and softened the tone of this rant a little. Ok….a LOT. But my original rant was a good one, if I do say so myself.
Well, on a completely different note…..More and more, I think I believe in arranged marriages. Well, maybe not really, but it sure would be easier that way to make sure that your son/daughter gets the spouse that mom/dad like. I could just pick out the guy for Beth that I thought she really ought to have, make a deal with his family, and that would be it.
Bethany was asked out by a guy I am starting to wonder about. They have not been out on a date – haven’t even met – and he is already mentioning marriage! Did I miss something somewhere? What kind of guy talks marriage to a girl he hasn’t even met?
It might be different if they had been good friends for 4 years, and suddenly realized they loved each other , but that’s not the case here. Steve and I got engaged only 3 weeks after our first date, but we knew each other for 4 years and realized we loved each other. It shocks people when we tell them we got engaged after 3 weeks.
This boy is a jailer for our county. We have a good friend who lives around the corner, who is a detective for the Harris County Sheriff’s Department. I think I might just go see if he can check this kid out.
While they’re at it, they can warn him about MOM! She posted about it here.
If he ever comes over, I think I’ll set around pictures of another guy to scare him off.
Things were so much simpler in the old days. Whatever happened to cousins marrying each other? More prayer! Thanks for listening.
