Long time no see

Well, we're finally moved. Took a few days, and a few setbacks (U-Haul screwing up, having an application rejected, etc.). But now we're here and starting to unpack. I've got things worked out at U of M mostly, (that's University of Manitoba, for anyone who isn't sure), and this semester I'm taking Structural Geology, Gemology, Introduction to Archaeology, Art History, and "Plagues and People", a class about how plagues and epidemics affect cultural growth. As you can see, I have lots of electives! I'm looking forward to them a lot, seeing as for the last 2-3 years or so I've done NOTHING but a single type of class every year.

I need to find a choir group or something still, but next week I'll go to the U during orientation and sign up for Swing Dance. I have a good reason for this...

Sean proposed! He got back from Egypt and asked me. Although he's given me a GORGEOUS and simple white gold ring, it might be going back because his Nana has a family heirloom ring instead.

At any rate, the swing dancing classes will ensure that we will look elegant and not like our usual bumbling selves at our eventual wedding. No date, but probably in about two years or so.

I had my lovely appointment with the GI doctor this month, and found out this morning that they decided to book a gastroscopy (camera through your mouth into the small intestine) THE DAY BEFORE MY BIRTHDAY. *sigh* Life is just soooooooo entertaining isn't it?

Getting back into some more knitting, I'd like a simple guy's sweater pattern for Sean. His Mom got some awesome wool from ladies down their street having a garage sale, and I think there might be enough (with some colourwork) of the icelandic wool to make him a sweater. Not sure though. I'm thinking maybe Durrow or something along those lines. I really like The Harlot's gansey though. Maybe something along those lines too.
