My Crazy Family...


I have to blog about the crazy weekend I had. And not crazy in a fun sense. Crazy as in my life has become a real-life soap opera. This is a picture of my fam right about the time my parents started having big-time problems. This was taken about 4 years ago. (From L to R - my Grandma, my sister Rachel, my brother Tyson, Mom, Dad, me and Tim) For those of you who don't know, my parents have been divorced for over a year now. And over the weekend, I found out my Mom was proposed to by a guy I've never met. I guess they went on 3 dates, this guy told my Mom he wanted to marry her, and my Mom pretty much said yes. She dropped off the face of the earth 2 weeks ago (so I thought) but I guess she had just been spending all her time with this new guy and she pretty much moved into his house after like a week of them meeting each other. Isn't that crazy?!? But the story gets so much better. My Dad (who has had a ton of chances to get back together with my Mom because she never could let him go and continued to want to be with him even though he was doing all kinds of mean things) suddenly has a change of heart after hearing that my Mom is getting married and decides he can't live without my Mom and admits he made all kinds of mistakes. Which is huge for my Dad. Anyway, he keeps on tracking my Mom down, trying to get her away from the new guy, he succeeds, they talk a few times, and he asks her not to marry the other guy and to marry him instead! I know! My Mom had 2 marriage proposals within a week of each other. It's like a soap opera, or high school. Either way, the whole thing just didn't seem like it was real. So the outcome? My mom kinda leaves both the guys hanging for a couple of days and then decides she has to give my Dad a chance to see if he's sincere. So as of right now, my Mom and Dad are back together. I can't even write my emotions because I've pretty much felt everything since this roller coaster started. It's just been crazy! So, I'm interested to hear everyones opinion because I really don't know what to think. I'm happy they're together, I just don't want to be disappointed again, and I'm worried our family will be the same way we were before the divorce, which wasn't very happy. I'm so thankful I have my own family, I don't know I could survive if I still lived at home!

Well...things have been kind of 'normal' since they got back together. In the morning, they both go off to work and Dad comes home later in the evening. To me, its like nothing has changed, that everything just went back to normal.

Hmmm...I'm afraid you got me. I have no idea what to think or say either. I just hope it all turns out for the best. Did you ever meet the other guy?

No, I never did meet the other guy. He and my Mom have severed all contact. I hope it all turns out for the best too! I know what you mean Ty, it does kinda seem like nothing happened, I just hope that everything goes up from here, and not down again.
