Venting- Warning, whining!

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

I am about ready to just start bawling.

Today started out so great. I went to vote; was number 7 in line so I didn't have to wait too long.

After voting, I went over to my favorite bakery... and ended up ordering my wedding cake! She is giving me a VERY steep discount, since I have been going there for years. This was huge for me; it was the only part of the actual wedding that I cared about. I don't care about venue, music, menu, etc. I have been dreaming of that cake for years!

So, I come to work on Cloud 9.

I swear we just can't win.

My fiance called me to tell me that his toolbox was stolen out of his truck; he's not sure when. Why the HELL he left his tool box in the bed of the truck is unknown.

He has to buy new tools in order to finish his current project.

He doesn't have enough money for the tools.

I don't have enough money for the tools.

If he doesn't finish the project by Friday, we wont have enough money to pay for the wedding dinner.

ALL we are doing for our wedding is a Justice of the Peace in the afternoon, followed up by dinner with our family at a restaurant. We were planning on about $600 including my discounted cake.

Now there is a huge possibility that we wont be able to pay for the cake, or the dinner.

I realize that this is very much a "first world problem." I know there are people out there, even fellow Americans suffering from losing everything (and even people) during Hurricane Sandy. I do have some perspective.

But DAMNIT I am angry that we just can't seem to get what we want. Every time things seem to be going really well, it's like some force out there says "Oh, wait, wait. They are doing well? Oh, we can't have that!" and something happens to wreck it.

Hundreds of dollars of tools, gone. Wedding dinner, gone.

And I am so MAD at myself for spending my savings a couple weeks ago. It was a very humble amount, but I KNOW better!

    I am sorry to hear this news. Life can feel very unfair at times, but I am glad that you and your fiancé have each other to work though these difficult times. I agree with the others that have suggested postponing the dinner. When I worked in construction and my gear was stolen from my truck my auto insurance covered the theft, perhaps your fiance's insurance will cover it as we'll. they may even give him money to rent the equipment he needs until his claim is processed. Wishing you the best, hold onto that love because it is the important thing.

    I'm so sorry to hear that!! I agree with BARBWMS - maybe you can postpone the celebration dinner? Heck, we will have been married for 3 months when we have ours! Is that an option for you?

    So sorry hun....... I hope things get better!

    I am so sorry... you must be very frustrated.. I hope you and your fiance can work this out together in harmony! It's hard to not throw blame, but that's a rough way to start a marriage!

    Blessings and best wishes for your life together.. maybe you can just postpone the celebration till things are better.
