HIGHS: - *ahem* I BOUGHT VICTORIA'S ENGAGEMENT RING!! Actually, I bought it on Thursday, but other than a few PMs to Ron this is the first chance I have to post here. So exciting! The whole purchase went very smoothly... I found the ring I wanted in like 5 minutes and the sales people were so nice and helpful. Only problems... since Vic loves white gold and the band they had was yellow gold they had to send it to be remounted on a 'temporary' white gold band while we wait for the real one to be shipped in a couple weeks... and in the process of the mounting and sizing for the temp i have to wait a few days. When I get it [Jan 6th at the absolute latest] I finally get to pop the question! Then, just a few days later I send her back to school for our final smester apart... YAY! - Vic's cousin had her baby this morning. It's her first and she had a few minor scares... bedreast for over a month. But everything is good. Healthy baby girl. ANNNND... since I'm already housesitting for Vic's Aunt [baby's grandma] she's going to [hopefully] be staying down in Florida at least a couple days longer which will play right into my proposal plans... LOWS: - My car. My crappy car. Lousy crappy old Saturn. It died. Well... I think it died. Sounds like it died. Barely starts, barely runs after it barely starts, and sounds like crap. It's dead. I hope. But because of the ring.... I'm broke. Can't afford to fix it, and can't afford to replace it. Crap.
