When I was about 10, my parents finally gave in to my years of begging and got a dog. Of course, I'd promised I'd walk him. I didn't. They brought him to the pound.

Wow that's harsh!

I'm in a better mindset now than last week. We were able to talk this weekend, I think having to make this decision was really hard on her. She feels intensely remorseful and that this will end up being something she regrets for the rest of her life. But, I know that she needed to do this, because she was apparently not happy, and we were not moving continue what had would have been a mistake because she'd always have her doubts and they would haunt her just as badly as this regret might.

She's found an apartment, she can move in as early as this weekend. She asked me if I could not be home for at least one day so that she can pack up, and she's trying to schedule movers (most of the stuff is mine, she doesn't actually have much at all)

She also really wants to give me the money for the ring, which I'm going to accept because I'm realizing that as much as it's a financial strain for her to come up with the money, it's a worse mental burden for her...and I'd be lying if I said I couldn't use that money...

So, we'll see how it goes... we both have to settle once this over, and then I guess at some point I'll have to move over to either either the Foolish Dating board or the Foolish Hermit board :-)
