India in June?

I’ve already made the obligatory Easter post, but I guess I’ll just say “Happy Easter” again. So, Happy Easter… again.

 

Before I accidentally ruined the database for my weblog, I had talked a little bit about going to India sometime this year and didn’t think I would be able to go. I’m going to do my very best to go in a few months for about a week and a half. I wanted to go and stay for a bit longer than that, but I can see that it’s really important for my partner if I go, plus he’s having some surgery done while he’s there and I don’t want him to be “alone” for it.

I thought that it’s only fair since I am dragging him to Texas next year, but this is the big trip. I’m not moving back to the USA then, but it’s when I am planning our marriage (assuming that it’s still legal, because you know the people who make the laws are scared of change and I’m ruining so many marriages between two opposite sex people).

I keep thinking about how I want it to go. I know that we’re both simple we don’t want something too extravagant when it comes to the ceremony. We talked about having a big party afterwards. I kind of want to incorporate some of his culture into it since we’ll be in Texas and I’ll be exposing him to a nauseatingly amount of my culture to him while we’re there. I see pictures of the big weddings between two men (and one is Indian) and I kind of want that, but then again, I’m not much on being the centre of attention for anything (unless I’m drunk and I’m not going to be drunk for my wedding).

Before I know it, it’ll be here but I thought maybe I should go to India before I head home and do this big thing. I still have to meet his dad who I’m not really sure is too excited that his son is marrying me. I haven’t really had much interaction with him, it’s mostly been his mother who is a really, really sweet woman and who has shown me incredible amounts of kindness and love since I’ve been with my partner.

It’s important that I go there, if I can. There are a few things I need to do before I book the tickets. I have always wanted to go to India. I have to keep telling people that this isn’t a forced trip. I want to go and I am excited (and a little nervous/anxious) to go for the first time. I really want to go, but it’s a big question of if I can go since I have had to take a lot of sick days over the past few months. I’ll do my best because I think this is really a way for me to gain some kind of appreciation towards my partner’s culture. Plus, I want to eat a lot of food. 🙂

That’s what’s on my mind now. I’m wanting to go to India in June and want to start planning for a nice wedding reception. We’ll see. 🙂
