I thought yesterday was going to be a disaster. I have a horrible sunburn which caused me to have flu-like symptoms. I went to work anyway since it was just computer training stuff, but he drove since I felt a bit dizzy. He had to come back and get me an hour later because I was vomiting every 5 minutes. He rubbed my back as I puked in a plastic bag in his car. The man is a saint.
Layed on the couch for a few hours, slept, drank water. Woke up feeling about 90%, and he asked if I felt well enough to go out to dinner. By the time we got to dinner, I felt 100% and was starving. Fabulous dinner at the Cheesecake Factory. He said he would like to walk around outside a bit.
We end up walking to our favorite part of the mall (it’s an outside sort of “village” mall), the light-up fountain. We talk for a while, then he said “Well it’s getting late, we should go.” Okay, sort of disappointed, but I was sick today so maybe that killed the mood? Nope. I go to get up, and he pushes me back onto the bench, “You’re not allowed to get up yet. I have something to give you.” At this point I think I started crying. He got down on one knee, opened the box and said “Will you be mine?”. We were both crying at this point but I remember saying “Yes, yes yes!” and kissing and hugging him. It was fantastic and perfect. I could not have asked for anyone or anything better 🙂
Now for a couple of blurry ring pictures taken with my cell phone lol. I will try to get a nice one later when I find batteries for the camera!
