I haven’t written in a few days and that’s not because life is without excitement !! I am still riding the huge high about the ring. I can’t wait to see it – I can’t wait until he proposes and puts it on my finger. It’s like this gigantic weight has been lifted off my shoulders – he’s seriously going to marry me. Not that I had any doubts. It just really bothered me that we were living together without being engaged even though I had the promise ring – it just wasn’t the same !!
I find myself looking at the ring CONSTANTLY (see photo on left) !!! I wake up in the night and check it out on my blackberry. We found another ring much like it : http://isadoras.com/9387/art-deco-sapphire-filigree-ring-2/ The stone is the same size and not nearly as shiny (see photo on the right). The filigree is not as nice in my opinion. And the price was $3250 !!
We’ve decided to have the ring appraised as soon as we get it – so we can be sure we got an actual gem stone and not something synthetic. Although the seller on eBay that we purchased the ring from has a 99.4% positive rating with almost 1800 sales under their belt. The one rating that is tarnishing their perfect record is grumbling about the cost of shipping. I’ll wait until I see the ring to fully endorse them however I’ve been nothing but totally impressed. The woman who’s been in contact with me is lovely, polite and prompt. She is also generous in that it’s costing me only $40 to increase the ring size by 2 and it’s by adding gold and not stretching. I did visit some jewelery stores and they said anywhere from $170 to $300. So I think we are getting a FANTASTIC deal !!!!
Friday I decided the house needed a refresher, so I re-arranged the living room/dining and back room. It looks great. I really opened up the living room and there is a clear view through to the window which I love. My boyfriend has moved his tower in to the living room and I’m not happy about it. However a girl must compromise. And I was feeling that I should…
We’d gone on a bike ride and I threw somewhat of a hissy fit which wasn’t nearly as entertaining and the boyfriend’s lovely a$$ over tea kettle spill over a dirt pile. My hissy fit was about the fact that I only wanted to ride on trails -I’m a wimp and if I am going to ride I want it to be fun or I won’t go. Well on the second side trip over grass and non-bike friendly areas I bailed. I was out of there, I announced it, pointed my bike in the opposite direction and pedaled. I decided to keep on bike riding as it was a great day for it and I was enjoying the riding. I did a total of 8 km and 30 minutes. I was happy with that. When I got home, the boyfriend was pouty faced and whining to the neighbor about me LOL He had ridden straight home…I figured he’d have continued on and enjoyed his own ride. I was wrong.
I have been feeling better these days and I think it’s the medication. I am sleeping less and still feel tired however able to do more in a day. I don’t hesitate to do things. It’s great !! I just hope it continues to make me feel good. I have also noticed sometimes I get this weird eye side to side thing. I’ll have to do some reading to see if it’s a side effect or maybe I’m being hypersensitive to side effects ? *shrugs*
Well I’m working hard – we’ve had a lot of follow up visits and it means I worked all day yesterday and four hours today. This morning we were up relatively early. I have saved up enough to take the week of july 1st off – basically I only need 4 days to take off the whole week. So the boyfriend and I are heading up North for two weeks in July then again in August for one week to see my parents.
We are still waiting for baby mama #2 to get back to us about the child separation agreement. My boyfriend also mentioned that his sister thought he needed a financial agreement so she sent him a copy of hers. Definitely worth a look at !! Although I think we covered it in the other agreement ! We’ll see… there really isn’t anything to divide. Just the proposal payment and child support. Their assets have been divided.
On a side note we scored a lovely free and new microwave on freecycle today !! Wooo hoooo !!
Last night I had a fire and sat outside working through a body image work book – it turns out I need some work in that department. My boyfriend did the quizzes with me and it turns out his image is quite good. I learned a lot about him and myself too. I really have a distorted view and value of my body. We’ll have to work on that.
Time to get cracking here at work…
