It was just that
My man and I spoke about getting engaged for months, but now that it has happened it feels so surreal. I think I am still a little surprised that he actually chose me to be the one
I have always been very conscious of the fact that I am a useless housewife ( I don't cook and I get tired of trying to keep the house tidy, so I give up) and I often feel like I am not the best step-mommy to his children.
