You're not alone

Gone into shock

The past week P has been acting like a Butt. Big time.

Here is todays story:

I was on the phone with my sister and she said "I know why P has been giddy."
Me: "Don't tell me anything! I don't want to know!" pause "Did he say something to you?"
Her: "Mom did"
Me: "I don't want to know!"

I came to the conclusion that he asked my Dad to marry me. Then the idea of when he might propose started playing in my head. I debated with myself. It couldn't be soon. He said he was broke. Or was he just saying that to get me off track?

He picked me up from work and we drove to my place to get ready for a hike. We were trying to race the sunset. We drove my awesome scooter to the hiking place and had a grueling hike. Lets just say that I'm getting him a gym pass tomorrow. I nearly dry heaved because I was hiking on an empty stomach, but he needs to get his heart healthy. He was frustrated, I wanted to eat before we got to the top. He wouldn't have it!

So after we ate our food(i had a few chips with salsa, grapes, blueberries and carrots) I asked him to play the song we are going to dance to at the wedding. Then I thought how perfect of a night this would be for him to ask me. But really, that wouldn't happen. He started grabbing my left hand, and then he made a ring out of some grass.

I half expected him to just slip a ring on as he was searching for better grass. But i knew it was just me thinking he could.

He asked me "Mindy, what do you think about us since I've been home?" I evaded the question and mumbled something about a UFO. Then I asked him the same question.

I am so glad he is a forgiving person. Sigh.

So I'm sitting on this mountain trying to tie some silly grass ring on my finger so it won't fall off. He takes it from me and says he'll do it. Then he shifted on his knee and said "its like all old school, brave heart"

I was just letting him do whatever he was doing. Then, he said something and I was like..wait a second...then he said the real thing:

"Mindy will you marry me?"

I said.."Don't tease me". I had a piece of grass on my finger. Then he said.

"I'm not." He pulled out the ring and I tried to hug him and give him a kiss. But he wouldn't let me until I gave him an answer.

oh. I said Yes.
