The flower show/ divorce drama

Saturday, February 23, 2013

Well it was nice to get out with the hubby and go to the flower show but what a disappointment it was emoticon .
We did get to walk a lot , but the displays weren't even beautiful and there weren't even a lot of good vendors there and the demonstrations weren't good either.
I mean we were so disappointed, I think I'll put some money aside each week to be able to buy tickets for Boston flower show next year, because the one in RI was really a bust this year!
There were so many bare spots from vendors not even attending and instead of selling things for gardens there were more jewelry and food vendors what does that have to do with gardening? Also they usually have people from the rose society that you can ask questions to and they weren't even there, I was really shocked how much it had gone down hill from last season.
But it was a nice gesture on my husbands part and we did get a little alone time and that's what we both needed, right now it's snowing and I'm in some severe pain so good thing we did go yesterday cause I don't think I'd of been able to go at all if I didn't go yesterday.
My husbands cousin is going through a messy divorce right now they were married 25 yrs and all of a sudden his wife said she didn't want to live pay check to pay check and said it's over, his cousin was always home with her a real family guy and even though he works 2 jobs that wasn't enough for her.
My husband is in shock and he keeps telling me how much he loves me and says how he wouldn't want that to happen to him, I said you don't have to worry I was never the girl that needed to go on elaborate vacations and buy expensive clothes and handbags.
We may not have a lot but we make one another happy and respect one another and when we said I do it was for the long haul , it's a shame that his cousins wife doesn't see what a good man she has and is all about money.
I married my husband because I love him and he loves me, he's shown me that real love means sticking with someone even when they are sick, god knows he could of put on his sneakers and ran away once I got sick and couldn't work anymore, but what we have is real.
Since this happened with his cousin I'm getting tighter hugs and more love then usual and believe me the usual was always a lot hahaha but I'm not complaining I think he realizes just what we have and doesn't want to take it for granted and neither do I...
I feel bad for his cousin she put a total guilt trip on him saying he didn't have enough jobs and know he's killing himself working and the other day she said she filed for divorce so now he knows there's no chance, she's already seeing someone else, what a shame...

    It is amazing how many people are getting divorced after being married so many years. We will be married for 27 years in August and people ask me if this is our first marriage? Wow really? for two things. 1. that people assume that everyone has been divorced 2. do I look that old to be married twice? LOL

    I hope that you have a good Sunday!

    Well that is rotten that the flower show wasn't so great. But as you say you got to go out with hubby and the time and the thought is what counts.
    I can relate to your hubbys cousin, my hubbys sister's hubby is fooling around, He is 62, an elder of his church, a great guy, so not sure whats gotten into him. Gwen and their 19 year old daughter have just gotten an apt. Will be hard for her as the daugther will be going to the states and overseas as she is learning to be a missionary. She will not even be in the same room as her dad right now and was skinnyyyyy and now is down to 112lbs. Her brothers don't live around here at all so that's no help. But I had the same feelings, I love you hubby, and hope that you dont think the grass is greener somewhere else.
    HUGS and hope the weather clears and you can get a bit of relief.
