So today is a big day for me. And I’m sitting with a netbook and for whatever reason feel the need to type everything out.
Today has nothing to do with the New Jersey Devils or the woes of free agency. Today is about something else that means a lot more to me (see that, there’s something else that means more than hockey!)
Jennifer Kathleen MacDonald, known here as Strawberrie, agreed – for whatever reason – to marry me. Crazy, huh?
That day was nearly a year and a half ago. And today, July 11, we will officially be tying the knot.
For anyone not in the position of being married, it’s a very strange feeling. Jen and I are having a very traditional lifestyle in that we chose not to live together until we were married. So today has an even deeper set of emotions knowing that in addition to geting married, we are truly separating our old lives to form a new one together.
Please don’t misinterpret this as saying you shouldn’t live together before you get married. This is just the way Jen and I felt about it and what we chose to do.
In any event, this feeling I have is a little tough to describe. People at work the past month or so have been asking me if I have been getting nervous.
Truth is, I wasn’t. But the past couple of days I now understand why they were asking. I have this feeling in my stomach that is – I feel – unexplainable.
Why should I be nervous? Jen and I have been together for over 9 years!!
But for whatever reason I had a tough time sleeping last night and have a stomach that is a little too excited for my liking.
One thing, though, sticks out in my mind. I am very happy. My stomach might be trying to persuade me otherwise, but it is so exciting to know that as of today at around 2:30, we will officially be married.
So that’s my story. I know it’s strange to read this on a Devils blog, but I felt the need to share this to my fellow visitors. Take care and I will be back in a couple of weeks after the honeymoon!
