Mr. 99 and I got some VERY good news today, we’re finally finished with this horrible journey of pain, recovery and strife…it hasn’t been easy, but we’ve managed to make it and stay together and not kill each other…which is a pretty admirable feat if you knew him at all…anyway, we’re finally going to be able to pay off all of our debt and do some of the things we’ve had to abstain from because it just wasn’t sensible and we’re not the kind of people to just charge stuff.
Mr. 99 has made it clear that he wants a new camper, my brother wants to buy our old one and we’re kind of outdoorsey people, its something we’d use and I know its something he wants so that’s fine…then he tells me he’s going to pay off my car….which I’m not so sure about.
I bought that car because I wanted it, because I can totally afford the payments and honestly its good for your credit score to have something on installments to show you’re a can-do kind of person…
What I WANT, and what I’ve always wanted since we became engaged, was…well…I love my engagement ring, I always have, but Mr. 99 knew from go that I was a 1ct or bust kind of person, and that while it didn’t have to be right away, sooner or later, we were going to upgrade that thing….he’s assured me of that over and over.
Not to mention, the proposal was something out of a cringe-worthy comedy and while I wouldn’t trade it for the world, because its a funny story that includes Oreo Blizzards, dogs and the movie 9 to 5…yeah, that’s right….Dolly Parton and Lilly Tomlin…we got engaged and THAT was involved, the memory of which I would never part with….frankly
I’ve been through hell with that man, and I have sacrificed, struggled, held my tongue, cried my eyes out and forgiven him, even when he couldn’t forgive himself, and now after all of that….I WANT A ROMANTIC GESTURE!!!
..not my freaking Kia to be get off….
I want a romantic dinner with my husband, a ridiculously expensive suite, champagne, rose petals, elicit sexual activity in front of a roaring fire and my BIG HONKING DIAMOND, to go with my big honking husband, lifestyle and personality…
My mother could spearhead the entire thing, she and Mr. 99 are thick as thieves…but before I go bang…I just gotta know
..am I being a demanding bitch?
