Parents are just getting weirder & weirder...

My Mom called me late last Thursday night to tell me that she had eloped.

She'd been dating her long-term fiance for about a decade and they'd been engaged for at least 5 years. They were on a road trip vacation and were driving through Kanab, Utah when the marriage bug bit and just had to be scratched.

I'm happy for them and love them both but... Why the rush? Couldn't wait for the kids to fly in? It's all just a little surprising.

WOW.

Why didn't you email me and tell me??

Lots of rushed marriages/weddings in your family these days. (Maybe SHE'S pregnant.)

Congrats on your new, official stepdad.

LOL. Nice, Jen. I'm sure Anna wants to think about her mom being pregnant!

Wow... That's pretty weird, huh? Happy for them, I'm sure, but I would be a little put off that they couldn't have waited for something the family could attend...

Congrats, nonetheless :-)

Anna said...

lol! No, she can't be pregnant. She had a hysterectomy a couple years ago.

Funny stuff.

Renee said...

I would like a hysterectomy, too...

Jen said...

After the cramps I had this month, so would I.

I think *I* want to spend Easter at your house, Anna. Sounds like it will be pretty interesting.

Hey, you have anywhere I could sleep? ;)

Will my painting services be needed in the next few days?

Anna said...

Yeah, sure com'on over & sleep in the bath tub. I won't even notice you there'll be so many people. Bring your own blankets & dishes 'cause mine are all being used. ;)
Here I go- Wish me luck!

Renee said...

Good luck Anna!! Everything will be great, I'm sure. I expect a full report when it's all said and done!
