I’m at my last hope for anything to go right. On Tuesday, Soon to be FIand I had just pulled up to the jewlery store to finally get my ring resized. So I can finally wear it and officially be engaged. Was Suppose to be done in Oct ’12! As soon as we parked I get a phone call. My uncle (mom’s brother) just passed away an hour ago. I broke down crying. Especially because it was a complete shock. He had liver failure and no one even knew he was sick. We don’t even think he knew he was that sick. He was only 48.
I had class yesterday, but knew I couldn’t make it thru 3 hours without crying or even being focused. So I went in to just drop off my homework. Then, car doesn.t want to start. Had to leave it there over night. Still there, btw, going back today. I’m completely broke! Then I find out my math class was dropped. I can enroll again, but its too late for my financial aid to cover it.
About my proposal. What timing to proposal now. It’ll still be special between, us but sucks that it’s not a happy time for us all. Its bitter-sweet. FFIL is dying and FI is dealing with that, as well as I because I love his parents. What else can go wrong? Hopeful that things will get better, but as of right now… Life sucks!
Thanks for reading. Just needed to vent, I guess.

@echolove: I’m so sorry to hear that you’re going through such a difficult time. Sometimes life just isn’t fair. I understand that it must feel completely awful right now, but try to focus on those things that are there and are good. Like the love between you and your FI – it’s an extremely rough time, but I’m sure you’ll come through it as a stronger couple! Wish you both the very best in the future!

Your proposal can wait a few days, it’s exciting and everyone will be needing something nice and something for the future to hang on to….. It’s so nice to have a great thing balance the bad things. 😀 😀

@HisIrishPrincess: Thank you ladies 🙂
I know the proposal is not a big deal. Its just the way it happened. One minute I’m so excited to finally get my ring and the next I’m in depress mode. Then added situations. The extreme change in emotions is hard. I still can’t believe my uncle is gone. I’m numb from it. It hits me, then it doesn’t. Its unreal.
