    Ugh! For once I'm glad I don't have siblings. Sorry NW.

    My engagement got overshadowed rather quickly by my grandmother being diagnosed with Stage IV ovarian cancer (again.) This time, she was out of options. Everyone wanted us to hurry the hell up, get married and pop out a grandkid for her. We (politely) told them to go to hell, we weren't rearranging our whole damn life because an old bat I didn't particularly like (and still don't, even if she is dead) was about to croak. We got married on our time table and she croaked 4 months later.
    I'd say ignore your sister, her wedding, and her male unless required for frosty politeness and family politics. Better for all involved.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

    There are some benefits to getting married sooner though if you decide to take that route:

    1. No competition with sis
    2. It will be done and you can move onto other things in your lives

    Instead of a honeymoon this year you could save it for your first anniv. And spend the next year planning that instead

    Either way you go, you still get the most important thing -you get to spend the rest of your life with the love of your life!

    Wow, harshin' Granny, that's cold. If you two ever do pop a squonk, you could tell all the relatives that you plan to name it after Granny and then change up at the last minute and name it Fred. Regardless of gender.

    Haha, my uncle called my sister Fred for no reason that we could ever figure.

    I like the idea of moving on to honeymoon planning quickly . We are thinking about maybe registering at one of those sites where people can pitch in on your honeymoon funding instead of getting gifts. Another thing to talk about with FiancÚ. Plus side of waiting till next year is that I'd have a lot more PTO to work with. By September of this year, if I don't take any days off, I'll have accumulated at least 7 days worth of PTO, which is more than enough to take a few days off for wedding shizz.

    Anyway, getting ahead of myself yet again. Need to talk to FiancÚ! Just no time (or energy, on his part) to discuss in the evenings.

    OMG if you use the word FiancÚ one more time we're having an intervention!

    Gwen: I have lost my fiance, the poor baby!
    Elaine Benes: [Australian accent] Maybe the dingo ate your baby.

    But it's his "name" here! First, Boyfriend, now, FiancÚ. Later, Hubs? I was actually thinking of calling him Hulky, so it's just a name instead of status. The nickname is actually one IRL, stemming from his last name and his love of the Incredible Hulk.

    I know, I don't even know how to put the accent on it. It would be so much easier to just call him Dude.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.
