I thought Don didn't want to marry me. I thought his ex-wife wrecked it and made him hate the idea. That was the signal he kept sending me. The last time it came up, when Becky was saying he should marry me, that night in bed I asked him about it and he said, "I told you I didn't want to get married." So I said screw it and went to sleep and never brought it up again. I had resigned myself to the fact that it would never happen, that I would forever pay for all the bad things Ami did to him.

Then yesterday he went to Cheboygan to meet up with Gary Price and his wife Judy and their lawyer to pay off the property, and then he went to work at Dan's. He came home while I was in the shower and he braided my hair like usual. (He's better at it because he can see it. It always comes out sloppy for me because I'm trying to do it behind my head.)

I got dressed and came out and sat down at the table with him to relax for a few minutes before leaving for work. He said, "I'm going to do this unromantic." And I was like, "Huh?" He said, "I wish I had some money." I said, "For what?" He said, "To get rings so you can have that piece of paper you want so bad." I just sat there for a few seconds staring at him speechless. Then I said, "Really?!" We talked about it a little more and then he said, "So is the answer yes?" Lol, I had forgotten to actually answer him. Of course the answer is yes!

Turns out he had this planned all along. He was tricking me. He planned on asking me to marry him after the property was paid off. I'm really happy! I thought for sure he didn't love me THAT much to want to marry me, but I was wrong.

It won't be too far into the future. We're just going to do it at the courthouse, which is fine with me. Who can afford a humongous $30,000.00 wedding? He just wants us to have rings first, which surprised me, too. I've been married twice before and never had a wedding ring. Chris and I bought cheap sterling silver rings on Mackinac Island back in 1996 before we foolishly got married, but they weren't really wedding rings. There was nothing with Marty. Don said we can get them from Walmart. He still has his wedding rings from Ami, but of course we don't want to use those. That would definitely bring back bad memories for him. I told him he should sell them, but he said they won't be worth anything even though they're white gold with diamonds. Maybe he should have them appraised to make sure.

He said we'll wait on having my name added to the deed so it's the right last name, lol.

He did slip up twice, and the first time was way back right after I moved here with him, so he's had this planned for a long time. One night he called me Wife, then said he was just kidding. Then sometime this winter he made another wife reference, and then said he was kidding. No, he wasn't, he just wanted me to think he was, lol!

But anyway, I'm really happy, and I can't wait to be a Wilton!

Last night at work an old guy fell walking out the door and the 2 people with him thought he broke his arm. The ambulance came and got him and I had to call Rich and fill out an accident report. Ugh, always something crazy at that job!

Well, that's the big news. Now it's time to get ready for work again.

Congratulations, T! I'm so happy for you both. I agree that getting wedding rings is a good idea. I absolutely love mine. Not because of what it is but because it represents my marriage and reminds me of it even when we're apart.

Have fun arranging everything! =)

Once again, congrats! Sneaky sucker, wasn't he? LOL
If he doesn't want to keep the rings, selling them will be worth at least the gold value. Diamond wholesale value is pretty low if they're not high quality but gold is gold.
Are you guys going to go pick out rings together? Do you know what kind you might want?

suggestion for rings: Dont look at "Wedding Rings" look at "Anniversary Rings" :P My beautiful and simple gold and tiny diamonds ring was only $200 cause its not an official "wedding ring" xD
