I don’t need to give you the back story of this fucking Coronavirus or our reaction to it. Restaurants in NY state closed for anything but take-out. So much for my plans.
Ok, Mona and my wedding wasn’t until Apr 25 and yes who knows if things could change between now and then… buuuut it’s 5 weeks away and Mona and I had to make a call so people can change their travel plans and for rescheduling all parties in general: photographer, hotel for out of towners, dj, e.t.c.
So like that, my wedding reception is postponed.
Our MARRIAGE, however, is full steam ahead. We’ll get married on April 25 by her brother who took the online course. The party will happen some other time. We do not know where the marriage ceremony will take place yet, or who will be there. We picked up the marriage license from the county this week, so all we need are signatures by the officiant and two witnesses.
Ugh, the party delay both sucks and blows. We’re really upset. We had just finished plans too.
People try to “silver lining” it by saying that now we’ll have two dates to celebrate or whatever. I know they’re trying to help. I’m still unhappy. I haven’t had good luck at long term relationships up until this one… for reasons Im not going into now. And I finally got there with Mona. She may be high maintenance and needy at times but damn we are fucking amazing together. I fucking love that woman. I made it to being in love and building something great with a woman with a bright future.
Aaaaaaand along came Covid-19. Well, it can’t stop the Rex and Mona train. Just delay the party.
PS Today was to have been my Bachelor Party. It wasn’t going to be anything crazy like a trip anywhere. Just a big dinner with 22 guys then maybe a nearby bar. I have a cousin who was even flying in for it too.
That’s less of a disappointment. Still it sucks too.
