I’ve had a bad week, day after day something happened that made me wanna screem but yeterday was a day where I just broke down. I couldn’t handle stuff anymore.
Dealing with family issues was pretty stressfull, on top of school etc… Then we would be barely seeing eachother this week due to work so i figured no way he would propose this week. Friday his kids were coming back so i knew it wouldn’t happen for another week and I was just blue. Then yesterday (Thursday) my i-phone dropped on the ground shaterring the glass. The nail stamping kit i ordered didn’t get to me as planned and just everythign sucked! All i wanted to do is go home and cry.
He was asking me whats wrong why am i upset, that i shouldn’t be upset because he loves me etc.. The way he was speaking to me was as if he was drunk. All smiley and giddy. Which just opset me more. I asked him:
What is wrong with you? Have you been drinking ? You have been around me all week and I told you all the stuff that goes on and why I am upset and on top of it you are bugging me with your big proposal plan and the teasing you are putting me through…just as if you were a wagging food in front of a lion and you know what happens to people that wave food in front of a lion? They get bit and you buddy are very close to get your hand bitten!
I knew that the evening was shot because he had a work function to go to and I couldn’t go with him because I had a vet app with our dog plus he was home all day and i didn’t want him to be alone all night too.
I got home from work and layed down to take a nap, I just needed the day to go away. I woke up after an hour and went to the vets with our dog and then we went to the park for him to run around. I came back and started backing up files on my I-phone while having a glass of wine. Although normally this would be ideal, I didn’t even like the wine this time and just craved tea. I had the nature music playing and candles lit and all of the sudden started crying. And i mean really really crying and just cuddled under a blanket and let all of it out. I didn’t want to deal with anything and just needed my head empty. I fell asleep on the couch.
He came back and I got woken up by a barking dog but didn’t move and figured I’ll just stay like this for a bit to try to shake off the sad/bad mood i was in.
He asked if i was sleeping – I answered: Not anymore. He than asked If I would sit up – I didn’t want to. He asked again and also added: Be happy… I’m happy. And so I sit up with messy hair and make up running from my eyes due to excessive crying just couple of hours before. I didn’t want to sit up because I thought it will be another one of those conversations where he tells me he loves me and to just be patient etc…. I thought to myself if he tells me that stuff I’ll throw a shoe at him.
He then said: Do you know I love you ? I said Yes. Then he asked: Do you know I will always care and look after you ? Do you know you are my everything ?
Then he reached to his right side for a box and as he opened it he asked ” Lulume, will you marry me ?
I was so in shock I didn’t even know what was happening, I thought he was joking, I didn’t even notice he was on one knee, I thought he was sitting on the ottoman.
I said yes and immediatelly started crying and had to hug him. Held him really tight. I was so so relieved like so much weight came off all at once.
I was happy, I am happy 🙂 I can’t believe he caught me off guard, I was totally surprised, I didn’t expect it.
It was so simple and so sweet, beautiful…. just so us 🙂
