today

Today's the day
7 years ago, standing in the ICU after my brother's terrible accident, I decided that if you are lucky enough to be alive you really should make it worth while. Don't just be alive. Enjoy being alive.
I decided on a 10 year plan. See the kids through school then leave to marital home and make a life for myself.
10 years would see all the kids through school.
10 years was a long time to wait but it seemed like the best solution.

Then a year later I met Mark in second life.

It was Soliel Snooks garden party as she opened her newest garden store in Otenths sim... Near my old sl home in Wyre.

Suddenly the maths in the equation didn't add up and 10 years wasn't ok.

Well it is 6 years now. .. short of the 10 and in very few hours time we are getting married.
The wedding isn't the start of the journey but a landmark in it.

It's going to be a great day.  Lots of friends and family are joining us for a real life garden party.  I must get some sleep before that!!!

Congratulations to you and Taz and best wishes to you both!
