i just got off the phone with my mom who told me some good news
my cousin Armando wants to get married the next time my mom goes to mexico because she’s his godmother.
his brother, Ricardo, is also engaged and is supposed to get married in december.
my cousin in texas, Leonel, found out he’s going to have a boy today.
NOW FOR THE BAD STUFF.
my sister and her long distance boyfriend broke up.
i never really liked him. i didn’t hate him necessarily but her ex of 7 years is kinda hard to match.
so my mom was talking about my sister being all sad and she went on to tell me that one of my cousins on my dad’s side also broke off her engagement because the guy was being abusive.
so then she went off on this idea that all the granddaughters of my dads mom are cursed.
all of them are single and have kids, not one has had any luck with men.
the only ones that so far have been “unscathed” are my sister, cousin Jackie, and I.
but then my sister got dumped, is 29 years old and has a hard time meeting men.
Jackie is in a stable relationship, at least from what we can tell, and will probably get engaged to him soon.
and then there’s me. which although i’m young, am not really a favorite among the opposite sex.
now, my mother is the last person that wants me to have a boyfriend at this time but when i talked to her she told me that she was genuinely starting to worry that we (my sister and i) will not find someone.
it just really freaked me out.
