One day it will be funny

Sometimes in life, there are moments that are not funny in the moment, but you know that at some point in the future, it will be funny.
I had one of these moments a few months ago. It was a quiet Sunday evening and Christopher and I were at my house watching a movie. When it was time for him to go home, I got up to blow out the candles that I had lit, and he says to me, "Sweetie, come here before you do that." Unsure of what he wanted, I walked over to him and he places my hands in his, gets down on one knee and says, "Kristi Beth, will you go to Sweethearts with me?" Yep, that's right. I'm fake proposal girl! In that moment, I actually thought that he was popping the question for real, and I think I almost cried. Needless to say, I did not think this was funny, though Christopher did. Looking back on it now, it is actually funny, but it took me a long time to get to that point. Thankfully he made up for it a month later by popping the question for real.
I guess this is one of those moments that I should remind myself of in the future when life presents me with obstacles that I should be able to laugh at later on. Maybe it would be better if I loosened up a little bit and laughed at the things that make me feel so far from anything resembling laughter.

My hubby did the same thing......TWICE! We had been dating for about a month at Christmas when he sat me down and gave me a jewelry box. I started panicking, until he saw my face and said NO its not a ring!!!

Then for Valentines, it WAS a ring, but he assured me it was a promise ring. At least I knew I would say yes when the time REALLY came.

Glad to know Im not the only one whos Hubby thinks that its funny to tease like that!

I think we are kindred spirits when it comes to that because I am the same. It takes me a while to get over stuff that really should be funny or meant to be a joke and at the time I don't find it funny but then later on, I get over it and think I took myself too seriously.
