Well it didn’t happen on my birthday. That’s ok, I wasn’t too disappointed. We had a wonderful day. He had to work that day, but after work we got ready and went to The Olive Garden, and then we went home and finished out our romantic evening by watching a movie and having a couple of drinks together. My last birthday was special with him, and this birthday was no different. He definitely knows how to put me in high spirits on my birthday, which hadn’t been good since I lost my grandmother five years ago.
Anyhow, I was talking to Jess (My boyfriend’s ex-roommate’s wife) and this was how the text conversation went:
Me: I like the pace that we are going, and I think it’s pretty obvious that I could see myself marrying him.
Jess: I heard he thinks the same… not sure how reliable the source is 😉 wedding bells! lol
Me: The source would be you, since I hear you helped him pick out the ring! Lol. He told me about it back in March 🙂 now I’m just waiting. I’ll wait as long as he needs. I’m not going anywhere. 🙂 And thank you for helping him. 🙂
Jess: Lol I am actually not the current source! people he works with are in on it lol!
Me: What the heck?! Omg… Now I’m getting excited all over again, haha. 🙂 I’m gonna beat him, lol. JK. But that did put me in a good mood. 🙂
🙂 It’s a good sign when a man talks to his coworkers about it!
At the moment, he is deployed. He had to go to Qatar for two months starting on the 23rd, and that’s why I hadn’t been on until now. I have been beside myself because he had to go, and shortly after my birthday. But I am fine now, getting back on track. I hate it when my boyfriend deploys, but that is part of his life, just as clearly as I am. So I have accepted it, though it really isn’t easy on us.
So I thought I would let you guys know that it hasn’t happened yet, but I have a feeling that it will. I don’t know when now, but it could be this fall, it could be Christmas or New Years, though that seems a little too obvious. If he didn’t do it on my birthday, which was too obvious, then I doubt he is going to use a holiday for it either. He may just hold off until next year on our anniversary, which is May 10th. I don’t know what he has planned, but we will see!
