So the Comic and I pushed two events together last weekend and celebrated our 8 months together and Valentine's day. We were going to try this Indian place, but decided to go back to the Thai restaurant that we went to on our second date.
The Comic who had been bugging me to have, touch, or at least see her present was very happy to finally open the box. The funny thing is she picked the ring out months ago from the Bradford exchange. I was very surprised to here it was her first Valentine's present. So hey I was her first.
Over the last few weeks we had talked a lot about our future and had checked out engagement and wedding rings on the net and in stores. Boy are jewelry store people rude. Anyway we decided that we would get engaged in the fall. I would move in with her around the New Year and we would get married in the beginning of next year. She's floating on Cloud 9 and I'm pleasantly happy. I still have brakes on, but I know that's my natural state with things that I really want. Especially since I'm the one picking these dates out.
Tomorrow will be Eric's 12th birthday and it will be the first time that I'm not visiting with him on it. Wow it's a bit rough. Not too bad since he decided on his own that he just wanted a normal school vacation. I'll be talking with him tonight so I'll see how he is doing. Also to see how he liked his presents.
