I am very happy to tell everyone that Adam proposed to me on December 30!  It was incredible.  It has been a whirlwind year, from getting into med school to my father's diagnosis and now our engagement...but that's how life happens, right?
 
My dad is doing so-so (thanks for asking about us, Lil!).  He got a pretty serious infection after his biopsy but is on the mend with Cipro, although it's a slow process.  He seems to be in good spirits - my mother tells me he broke down in tears when Adam called him last week to tell him about his intentions to propose; they were happy tears, though! 
 
I see there's a lot of newbies who need some diarrhea advice...watch out, here I come!

Congratulations!!!!!  yeah tongue tongue yeah

OMG, I can't believe it... I am so happy for you.  I remember way back when, when you first got together with Adam.

And he called your parents to ask for your hand in marriage?  What a great guy!!  You 2 are very lucky to have each other.  I am so happy for you.  I only wish I lived closer to Alaska; I would have liked to get an invite... I feel like I know you guys.   :-)   :-) :-)

I wish you both much love and happiness.  And, especially for you Sarita, I wish you much health.  May 2007 be filled with success for you and Adam (and your dad!!!).

BIG HUGS

Please add my congratulations to Lil's. Looks like you are starting the new year out splendidly. I never realized you lived in Alaska. Brrrrrr. Now you will have Adam to keep you warm for a long time. Good thoughts to your Dad, also.

Lil, that was awesome!  I remember that...seems like just yesterday.  He still is a muffin and I am definitely still a goombah.

My mom is already trying to plan the wedding...I have no clue about when/where it will be.  All these freakin' changes!  But they are happy ones.

I had to nip my mother in the bud with our wedding because she was trying to micromanage it. Luckily we were planning a medieval wedding, so she was out of her depth for most things, but she kept trying to sneek in modern wedding stuff, like cakes and fancy place settings and flowers--stuff I wasn't willing to waste my money on. Stuart said family members got to have an opinion about our wedding in direct proportion to the amount of money they contributed to it. Which means no one got to have any opinion because no one gave us any money for it.

I will say this about your wedding; nothing matters except the vows. I spent my entire wedding day feeling like I was hearding cats. You'd think no one had ever been to a wedding before. After the wedding all our family ran into the hall before I could get any pictures taken, people kept coming up to me during the day while I was in the middle of doing something outside to hand me a card, like I had pockets in my wedding dress (which is why, two months later, we just found three cards with money in them), people came in late who were supposed to be there early to help set-up, people started leavin en-masse before dinner was finished, etc., etc., etc. Spend your money on a wedding coordinator who will keep your suddenly dumb***, bumbling, backwoods, bumpkin family members away from you (trust me, even family members who are nuclear engineers will suddenly start asking you three thousand stupid, inane questions, like, "where do you want the napkin?"--and when you reply "anywhere's fine", they will insist on showing you all the places they can put it and insist that you choose a position right now, and then the routine starts over with each piece of flatware, glasses, plates, bowls, etc.), and do everything else on the cheap. Because, even with a referee, you'll still be pulled so many directions, you'll miss enjoying all of it, so why waste the money? I think mothers try to run their daughter's weddings because they didn't get to enjoy their own wedding the first time around. Mothers do all the planning, then sit back and look at the results, while the bride is swarmed by people like vultures on a carcass which obscure her view of everything. LOL.
