I said "yes"...

This summer has turned out to be much more busy than I ever expected. As a result, I've fallen behind in blogging and reading blogs. I'm doing my best to catch up right now (still chuckling at Allison's birthday story).

I submitted my resignation at work last week in preparation for returning to school on August 28th. It's hard to believe that I will be leaving my job of the past 10 years, however I have to say that I will not miss it one bit. The company I work for has gone screwy and several others have also jumped ship, so I'm glad to go. The only thing I will really miss is having 100% medical coverage.

And, you can probably guess the rest from the below picture:

Wow! That's beautiful. I'm usually not a fan of diamond rings because I find them gaudy most of the time, but that is gorgeous. I approve. ;-)

Congratulations! I'm glad you warned us before I scanned down to see that huge rock! It's beautiful - I almost need my sunglasses to look at it!

Congrats!

Sounds like things are going well for you: following your heart and what you seem to know in your gut is the right decision: quitting a job you're unhappy at, pursuing your education further and getting married! Wow! I think diabetics are pretty damn good at following gut instincts, and I have a hunch you're on to something fabulous here!

BTW, I just started reading your blog, and am enjoying it. Thanks for posting.
