So, recently my SO told me not to expect engagement around the holidays. It’s hard to stomach those words because I totally expected it , being that a while back he told me I can expect engagement sometime in 2011… and time is running up!
He went Christmas shopping the other day and I hadn’t stumbled upon any gifts, so he’s done a great job of hiding things (I don’t go looking anyway because I don’t want to ruin the surprise). A couple nights ago my SO was looking for a lost remote control and I started to help me. I immediately went to his bedside table drawer because he sometimes puts it in there. He stopped me quickly and in a pannicky voice said “NO! Your Christmas present is in there!” Anyway, fast forward to last night… we needed something and he told me it was in the drawer. I felt hesitant to look because of what he previously said. From the other room he said “What’s the hold up babe? I told you it’s in the drawer, can you get it please?” So, I went into the drawer and found what he was looking for AND also in the drawer was a huge stack of paperwork and receipts and one of the receipts had visible writing that read “How to care for your diamond”.
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKK! I can dream, right?!
AND, LOL, I was checking out his iPhone4 last night because I’m thinking of getting one. He was explaining the apps to me while I was looking at it. I went to his photo album and the 2nd last photo on there appeared to be a picture of my RHR on the tip of his ring finger (maybe to help with sizing?).
Keeping my mouth shut, but inside I’m so happy I could burst!
I just hope he’s doing this on his on terms and not because earlier this year I sat him down and said “what’s the hold up? Can you please tell me what year you will ask me”. I wanted to give him a nudge, but also want him to do this on his on terms.
