I feel your pain!! We had my grandson's 2nd Birthday party at our house yesterday...cookout, cake, kids, power wheels and all. I know I over did it and had some problems late in the evening, but even with the pain....not something I would have missed unless I was....well, just not myself. My kids and my grandkids are my life, so things like birthdays, weddings, get to gathers are things I do knowing that I will pay for it, but at the same time knowing if I didn't I wouldn't be able to stand it!!!
Congrats! on the rings...when my husband and I got married, all we could afford was some costume jewelry from the flea market, but a few years ago he replaced it and it was a wonderful feeling....We all like to show stuff off sometimes!!!! lol
