Swindled

So as some of you know, I've recently been interested in getting a Nintendo 64, yes I know, old school but it has some really good games on it. Anyway, about a month ago, I started looking for one on craigslist, many were being sold but I just wasn't willing to pay 30, 40 or 50 dollars, it just seemed like too much, well, in my haste I bought one off of ebay from a guy in Florida. I just wanna say that Ebay has it's place and can be a really good resource for getting things cheap, however, it can also be a place for dishonest people to swindle people like myself. The add read, great condition, adult owned, just plug and play? Sounds great right, this guy had 100% feedback and decent selling history. So great, the auction ends and I won the 64 for 4.34, great right? Not. The guy didn't communicate with me at all, not thanks for the payment, not your item has been shipped, nothing. Which maybe I'm just picky but that bothered me for sure! Lo and behold, after 3 wks, …

I'm sitting here at 12:30 am watching Little House on the Prairie thinking about how it gives me warm fuzzy's from my childhood. Then that randomly got me thinking to the movie Hook, remember when he can't become peter pan without his "happy place" as I was thinking about this happy place I realized my happy place is our wedding.

Our wedding is hands down the best day of my life thus far. I remember waking up the morning of with the most excited feeling! I remember the day couldn't get to the ceremony fast enough. I remember hanging out with all my girls getting our hair done then later hanging out in our room waiting for the guests to arrive and for five o'clock to come around. I remember having the biggest smile on my face and nothing could take it off, not even a black eyeliner pencil that fell…
