Oh boy. Here goes.

If you remember NOGuy (New Old Guy) you might remember that things started out a little rocky.

He was very needy and very clingy and I am neither of those things.

Well, after some ups and downs, he has eased up a lot and things got better.

It's been two years now that we've been dating and we ran into a new issue. He wants to get M. It's not that I don't want to, but I've been M twice and, obviously, those didn't work out. He, being a traditional type of guy, wants to do things the traditional way.

I knew it was my "stuff" (FOO stuff, past relationship stuff) that was keeping me from moving forward. I realized I needed to look past that and decide if I was ready to plan a future with another person or if I was ready to accept the fact that I would remain alone. While I'm a little freaked out about that prospect (and yes I've been honest about all of this with him) I decided I was ready to move forward and said yes.

So, it looks like I'm engaged.

He is going to sell his house and move into mine. We decided his is just too big and expensive and quite honestly, I want to do more things than just pay for a house. Besides, I just bought the compound two years ago. I'm planning to stay for a while.

So that's the short story and here is a really terrible picture of my beautiful ring.

Congrats, CD!

Haha. Besides, I figured I had to M him because he really likes the Posse and they like him. Even with the young ones running in and out of my house constantly, pregnant Xena coming in and stealing food (she has her own, mind you, she just says my food tastes better ) and the general craziness of life at "The Compound"

And, apparently, I'm the only woman his kids have liked....and they happen to love me.

Congratulations!! and yeah, I was hoping to see you update here, too.

I know. I'm not one to put my feelings out in public or social media. In fact, my kids were the ones that posted it on FB. I still haven't. I'm way too private and guarded for all that. Some of that might also be fear based. I'm afraid if I put it out there, something will happen and I'll have to take it all back.

I know, crazy right?

But I do feel safe enough here to tell you all where I'm at. Cuz I love you guys.
