I’ve had one of the most exhausting, difficult weeks at work. Seriously, I’ve worked 50 hours in a 4 day work week. Haven’t been home before 10pm all week. And I’m working Saturday and Sunday too! Exhausting.
Last night Boyfriend mentioned that maybe we should have dinner on Saturday at a certain restaurant neither of us have been to yet, and we’ve been wanting to try. He mentioned that "you know, we could get all dressed up and look nice too" (we live in Montana, getterg dressed up means not wearing jeans.) I told him that by Saturday night I’d probably need to just sit on the couch and veg out in preparation for working another 8 hours on Sunday…
… now I’m kicking myself. DUH- what if he was going to propose?
And I’m also annoyed with myself for even having that thought. I’m afraid now that everytime he suggests doing something out of the routine I’m going to think "This IS IT!"
Bah, long week. Annoyed at myself for either ruining a proposal or even thinking that it might have been coming.
Back to work.

Could you say, "Now that I think about it, a nice dinner out is excatly what I need to end this crazy week!" or something! You just never know what guys are up to sometimes!

At worst, you have a nice date! It might be just what you need…

Ohh CHK I feel the same way. We went hiking with some friends this weekend, and we finally got to the top and saw this amazing view, and he was like, I have a surprise for you! and started rummaging through his backpack… and I was like, this is it! omgomgomg… and then he pulled out some granola bars. lol.
Anyways, I’m sure if that’s what he was planning it will happen very soon.. no reason not to make him sweat a little along with you!

Don’t worry about it…even if it isn’t a complete surprise in a few years it won’t matter…not to trivialize your situation, but it sounds so similar to my former situation and now we’re married and expeciting baby #1 in a month and the last thing on my mind is all the times I thought he was goiing to propose 🙂

@ <font size=”2″ color=”#81a026″>mechiebaby</font> Oh my gosh! See, that’s exactly what I worry about. Granola Bars. Killing me.

Oh, I feel for you! Try to get the dinner date back on if you can, but then again don’t be disappointed if he doesn’t end up proposing that night.
That is definitely a difficult aspect of waiting, though – all of the times you think, "Is this the moment?" Every vacation or out of the ordinary thing gets your heart racing. Good luck 🙂

I worked myself up like that all the time when I was waiting for Mr Frenchie to propose. Try not to do that too much or you’ll go nuts, like I did. Try to get your date back, but don’t kick yourself if it doesn’t happen.
P.S. I totally know this is easier said than done.
