As I have made rather clear over the last several months and 200 posts, I believe that my blog is not just about my lapband journey. I share whatever comes to my mind. I want you to know me. To know me is to love me (haha...not always)
So I thought I would share some of my personal thoughts with you. Here's one:
1. I want an engagement ring. And Tracey wants me to have one. That is not the problem. The problem is...and you might not have known this...engagement rings cost money! And while credit for some people is an option, we pay cash for everything. And half of Tracey's paycheck a month goes to child support, so after all the bills are paid, there isnt much left for fancy rings. And I want a fancy ring :) Ever since I was little, I have waited for that day that the man of my dreams slides a beautiful ring on my finger. I blame Barbie. You know how Barbie's left hand has that little hole in it for a ring? And you would lose that darn ring after about 4 hours of Barbie being out of the box? Well, Ken would always propose to Barbie. One of my most favorite Barbie story lines! I do not have the dream of a house full of children. But I do have the dream of the ring. I have the dream of the wedding. I have big ol' sausage fingers and a little baby ring would just not do. Lately all of Tracey's friends have been asking the marriage question, and we say that we have to get the ring first. And then I hear comments like "Oh, I just told Tom that all I need is a string on my finger". REALLY? Good for you. But this will be my first and last marriage. (bc if it doesnt work out then I will move to Maine, live in a shack with my cats). It's my dream okay? Do you know what my boss said when my coworker and I were talking about how rings? "I just not that shallow. I would rather have a boat or something." SHALLOW? I drive an old car and live in a fixer upper? And while I would love a boat...how expensive of a ring do you think I am talking about? And a boat doesnt last forever fool! Diamonds do! hahah
So basically. I have wedding fever. After the cruise, Tracey is going to fix up his truck (minor repairs) and sell it. Yes, the man is selling his truck to buy me a ring. I love him. Then it will be operation wedding, and we will have to save for that as well. Small wedding probably, but then a big reception under a white tent. You all are invited. You can come to Pensacola for vacation! However I am getting married in a cool month bc this girl does not like to sweat!
I guess this post was band related after all....wedding BAND related! hahaah...
Thanks for listening! I know everything happens in due time.
