Your typical chat/community thread

Getting warm again today. High around 68°

Work is going well, but I guess we're losing one of the offices in June. Supposedly, they're planning on expanding services at another office, near to the one we're losing. Not too sure if this is bad for business or good for business.

My Wife went back to work this week, after recovering from surgery. With the kids in school, it's kind of eerie in the house all by myself. I think I'll shut all the blinds and play Skyrim ;)

68 is warm?

Watching The Walking Dead, somehow many days after work i feel too tired/lazy to play a game, so i read or watch tv. May just be the game i'm playing at the time isnt that great, since some games i make time for. Or the book or game is better, maybe.

Hey, where's prap?

Fucking 8 inches of snow last night. MINNESNOWTA STRIKES AGAIN. At least it's melting fast.

I don't think the intention is to stay here, Lily. I think we're here until Tony fixes the other place.

In other news, I posted this on the regular KZ, but I bought Kaylie's engagement ring and wedding band today.

Do you know when you want to pop the question or just going to wait for when you are settled more?

Planning on doing it Saturday. I was going to do it tomorrow, but I realized that's my mom's birthday, and Kaylie might not like the idea of having to share her engagement day with my mom's birthday haha

Edit: I picked up the ring today. I had the center stone swapped out for a bigger one and I had to wait for them to do that. I'll post pictures later

Uh. We'll talk about that later. Like after we're married.

I've always wanted two kids, though.

Interesting. You made it seem as though you two had talked about your future together at length. Just not willing to share yet?

Two is good. Although, if the two are girls, would you try for a boy?

Is the surprise that she wouldn't think you'd propose so soon after buying them? Or does she not know you did?

Good luck!

She doesn't know that I've bought them, of course.

It's not that, Pre. I want two kids, and I think she wants the same. If I had two of the same gender, I'd probably try a third time, but stop after that regardless of the third kid's gender.

She just went out with a couple friends, so I'm finally able to post about it without having to look over my shoulder.

We looked at so many different jewelry stores it was crazy. Her favorite was a 1.15 carat ring at a local store. I kept telling her it was too small, and she still liked it the most. It's a three stone ring with diamonds in the band. So I had the store swap out the center stone (it was a .70 carat) with a 1.0 carat of better color and clarity, so it brings the total weight to just below 1.5 carats. I think it's a beautiful ring. Her hands are super small, so I had to get it sized down for her, which should make it look even better on her hand now that it'll fit right when she tries it on.

Today is the day. I'm going to call her dad and then mom (they're divorced) in a little bit to get their blessing and fulfill my role in this tradition. Hopefully the rain holds off today so we can go out. We're supposed to go down to the park, which is on the Tennessee River. That's where I plan on proposing. People like to camp down there, so I'm hoping someone will be around so I can get them to take a picture while I'm proposing (telling her it's a regular picture of us, but telling the person what I'm really doing). After that, we'll go out to eat and probably go see a movie (Iron Man 3, which is probably the least romantic movie ever, but have you seen the movies out this week? Garbage).

Anyway, wish me luck. Huge commitment..one that lasts a lifetime.

Edit: And I'm glad to be able to share this with you guys. Other than my parents, I haven't told anyone else about it yet.

Glad you didnt go with hiding the ring in food. Always seemed like a terrible idea. Unsafe.

Happy for you man. And yes, some luck! But i dont expect you'll need a lot.

Good luck Aaron! I can't wait to read your post-proposal post! Are there any specific traditions for your religion that you two will be fulfilling?

My wife and I were married in a Baptist church and it was pretty simple and quick- not like how a Catholic wedding would have been, much longer and probably more formal. Seeing as we would have had to sign an agreement (yes, you read that right) promising to raise the kids Catholic, I'm glad we didn't go that route!

Now, if we could get Mistik and Lily hitched... then maybe Paul and Tony...
