I'm writing this up now because quite honestly, I can't sit on it any longer before I explode: There's a lovely ring which Dan's father gave to his mother when he (Dan) was born, which is now my engagement ring.

Assuming that I'm coherent enough to type, yes, you read that right.

I have absolutely no idea what I've done to deserve being this happy. And a little terrified, but in a good way (if that makes any sense (gods, I am incoherent)), and to be honest any emotion which isn't "happy" is going to be put on a shelf for me to deal with later.

Holy shit.



This just came up on my Pandora channel, and I think it describes the situation perfectly:

"I am lucky; so much luckier than I ever thought I'd be."
-- Conjure One - Extraordinary Way.

In other news, because clearly I'm capable of writing up a rational post: Christmas with Dan's family was wonderful, even if I'm still single-handedly funding Kleenex corp. (I should buy stock). I'm -feeling- better, at least. I got both magnetic spice jars AND a mixer, and am in kitchen heaven. One word: MARSHMALLOWS. The truffles came out about as good as I could have hoped, and the raspberry ones were by far the best of the bunch. I'm foisting everything which wasn't eaten this weekend off on people at work, and by the look of things I shouldn't have to bring any of 'em home!

Good thing, too, because the kitchen table is literally covered with goodies from various aunts, uncles and grandparents. COVERED. This is why people gain 10 pounds over the holidays!

I am getting absolutely nothing accomplished today.
