My bf went to OCS. He left three weeks ago and was supposed to be gone for 2 months but after the first phase he decided to come home and do a longer more relaxed program because he was sick and wasn’t getting any better while he was stressed out there.
Last weekend he came home pretty beat up and I was at his house with friends from out of town and he joined us out for a night of drinking. While we were out somehow marriage came up (Neither of us remembered who started it) and he said he was planning on propsing very soon and that he had something going on with a ring. And I asked how soon is very soon, like before Christmas. And he said “oh yeah before Christmas” and gave me a look like why would I guess so far in the future. (I don’t know about you girls but fall and winter fly by for me and Christmas feels right around the corner).
Monday he came over to my place and was dismayed to see I had like no food in my apartment and when I told him I wasn’t expecting him back and was having a tight month with bills he offered to buy groceries and dinner and give me money if I needed it. He’s excited because he just got military leave and military pay for being there. Also a significant raise that’s going into effect this week and a bonus…so he’s got lots of money to spend. I commented “Oh you can buy a new computer!” (He hasn’t had one for a year) and he said, “I can buy a lot of things….”
And tells me he was thinking we should go out somewhere nice for dinner Saturday and asked if i had any suggestions. I didn’t and said I’d think on it. Yesterday I mentioned I had thought about dinner and he said “Don’t you worry about it.” and did his little hand thing that means ‘I’ve got something planned’.
My mom asked me if I could feed the dogs on Friday for her and I said that’s fine but Boyfriend or Best Friend asked if we could spend the weekend at his house he has something planned for dinner. And she asked if I was wearing a dress… Also last week she sent me a message that was like, do you remember this venue? It seems like it’s got everything you want, just wanted to see if you remembered it was there. I mentioned the venue to Boyfriend or Best Friend and he wanted to see the website and says we should go visit. I agreed but said I felt funny going if we wern’t actually planning anything yet.
Today he suggests massages for this weekend and he’ll be paying. And when I asked what I should wear for dinner he said it was this sushi place he’s been wanting to take me to for the last year because he thought I would like it (he doesn’t like sushi). And he said wear a dress.
I don’t know….it could just be that he finally has money to do all these things he’s been putting off. I mean he is also getting his carpets cleaned because he has the money (though he never mentioned wanting to do that before). I’ve been kinda in a blissful state with him all week, he’s been relaxed and smiling at me a lot. I just sort of figured it was because he was home and he’s less stressed about his army stuff and he was just back to normal.
Now I’m curious but I don’t want to get my hopes up, either way massages and sushi sounds like a great weekend to me!
edit: my mom just suggested I get a new dress….
