I am going to forgoe my original plan to post about the medical signifigance of PMS, and go on to a new topic....... I wouldn't want to disappoint, those who said they bet they knew what I would be blogging about today!
I GOT ENGAGED!!!!
It may be rude to say it's about time......but it IS! I've been patiently waiting forever since he brought it up over a month ago! And you don't tell a girl what your going to do and then make her wait. I'd rather not know. Well maybe not so patiently, but as far as he knows, I've been patient!
The, "you wont know when it's coming" "It could be anywhere" "itll happen when you least expect it". Makes you live in constant fear. And fear that you have to try to hide. I think I was starting to have anxiety over it and everything!
I love my ring, it's just what I always wanted. It's an emerald cut, white gold. We tried to take pics but couldn't download them. It was late when we got home. I asked him if he was sorry he asked me, cus he was being really quiet. Boys are weird.
At first, I thought it would happen on Sweetest Day on the cruise. Then, he said it wouldn't be on the cruise. Then I thought, he just told me that to throw me off. Then I thought, it'll be 'on' Sweetest day since the cruise is the day after. Or, maybe while shopping for our Sweetest day Cruise outfits. Or, maybe the night before? Or the morning of?
The only time I thought for SURE I had figured it out, was this past wknd, when he told me to go out with my friends. I wouldn't have even suspected it, except for this conversation of which I told him nothing of our plans for the night:
WG: "I'll be up when you get home"
ME: "No you won't we'll be out really late"
WG: "Well, just don't go to Luigi's"
ME: "How did you know we planned on going to Luigi's?"
WG: "I just guessed, everyone goes there after the bars"
ME: "how do you know what I am doing, I KNOW I didn't tell you that!"
I then found out, that WG had been in 'cahoots' with Bethie, and he was going to do it that night, but that 'his plans fell through' whatever that means.
He had talked to my bosses about doing it at work, at BOTH jobs....
Yesterday he said 'everyone' is asking me if its tonight', because were going out. Well, were not going anywhere fancy, and its after work! So....? I wasn't sure!
Guess what? I havn't had the raging shits today. And I don't feel anxious. And I think I can get a lot of work done! It was all the wonder that did it!
If you learn nothing from my sorrows, learn this. If you plan to propose to someone, don't tell them. And if you do, don't give any indication of the 'when it could happen' cus you could drive her to secretly hate you daily! Well...not hate, but I get pissed off on a daily basis cus I go all day anticipating it, then nothing happens. I think there is a word for that.
Congratulations to the happy couple! In honor of our engagement, I'll change WG's name to CP which is my pet name for him.
