sOmE eXpLiNaTiOn PlEaSe!

so i am learning about myself, that i don't like to use caps first off, but also that i often RUSH IN to a lot of decesions! i don't know if being young and naive plays into this, but i feel like there are several 'regrets' or 'now that i've thought thru this' statements flown around. let me give you an example...we had refinanced a while back for the purpose of fixing up the kitchen, getting a car for a growing family, etc. i found a car i had liked and researched it LOADS -i did not want to make this decesion wrong! well, we went to see the car we liked, and it really had more trouble than we wanted to work with so we went to look at some other dealerships. it was getting dark and the time was closing in! i knew that if i wanted a car, it had to be purchased!!! as if there wasn't another day. at about quarter to 5 (closing time) we stroll into the last place for the evening. there is this BIG (meets requirement for growing family), shiny (so it looks pretty, lets be honest -the first thing that attracts a girl to a car) and he, the dealer, will "give us a STEAL". how on earth could we refuse?! now my dad the mechanic is with us and i hear him (it seemed as a mouse squeak) trying to talk me down from the clouds! "these are gas guzzlers, krit" and "i heard something about these transmissions"! his efforts, FAILED. somehow within 15 min i walked into a place, found THE car i needed to have unresearched and all, had my mechanic check it out, signed papers, and drove out of there in my new BEAST! luckily, it hasn't been mechanically bad for a car and we have felt very blessed to have it...but there are many things i didn't even check because my eyes were so rose colored! there was 1 working seatbelt in the back, no working speakers, the ac didnt work, to call it a gas guzzler doesnt quite describe how much gas it uses, etc. i cant tell you how many times we have sat in the car and said, "you know, we really should have thought before buying this!" (sidenote: thanks dad for trying to keep us out of cloud 9!)
well, all that to say, i suppose i have been a fool many times in my life! what made me think to use that as my blog title though...not quite the same kind of story! five years ago, this very day, i started dating a man. and though it took him forever to give me that first didn't take us long to know that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together! while i know that decesion was one of the biggest i will ever make, there are NO REGRETS!!! sure, he's kinda like the car! he 'runs well' but has lots of little things -he eats EVERYTHING in sight, has the ability to wear it all too, hardly ever cleans up after himself, gets tickets like its his hobby, etc -but he's mine! (i wouldn't mind a new hobby!! j/k)
so as the king put it:

and, well, this dance is reserved for you love!
