So, we almost had the money saved to buy my engagement ring….
Fiance proposed christmas day last year with a promise ring with the aim of us picking out my proper ring together- our tastes and personalites are pole axles apart!
Long story short, money is tight- three kids (two of which are not in school yet) one income and a morgage does that to you! Anywayysss we have picked a ring and I was hoping we would be right next month to order it…
Then in the space of a week my psychotic 10yr old front loader wasing machine decided that it needed 3 to 4 days to do al load. It was always unbalancing, took itself for walks and used to bang and clang like a toddler discovering a drum set… no bull. Unfortunately it was going to cost us $100’s more to fix than replace 🙁 On top of this, my good ole faithfull vacume cleaner of 12 years (Rex) decided that it wanted to retire and blew up on me!
So.. we have just had to spend the $1k we had saved to buy these items. Unfortunately they are not luxurys and well with a baby in a pre schooler, things get messy and quick. We also wanted to buy products that would last us another 10 years or so…
I’ve got to the point where I am over the excitement of getting a beautiful E ring. Its like the gods out there dont want me to have one. Im beyond getting upset or depressed about it.
Now it is just plain funny!!!
I wonder what will break/go wrong next? LOL!
