this holiday season, this year, wrapped up beautifully well, with the last of 2010 spent playing charades (o, i play a mean game of charades ....), raising glasses and ushering in 2011. 


it is no small surprise that i had fully been expecting something super big, super amazing, super life changing to happen.  (*cough* - this is because shoes intimated in OCTOBER that something super life changing would be happening before the holidays).

it didn't.  no news.

i did, however, have a slightly frantic man on New Years Day pestering me to know if i had heard him and his brother talking about "things" in the next room the night before long after i had gone to bed.   "this is something," shoes says, "you cannot control and something in which there has to be a fair amount of spontaneity."

also, shoes says, "i know what i said.  don't be disappointed.  it's stunning.  but let me handle it."

sure.  dance, promise boy, dance. ;)

i'll keep you posted.

(i am a little bit controlling ...)

    well it better be stunning! I'm glad the boy knows big words like that. How funny. I'm glad it has to be just perfect and I'm glad that it will be not when you expect it. That's the way those things need to be.

    I check this blog every day to see if there has been any big news revealed. :) It will be perfect whenever he decides the timing is. Love you.

    Doesn't he realize he's keeping us all in suspense! Come on Shoes, come on! I need to grab a bowl of popcorn before reading your blog!

    Let Shoes know that there are several women, not just one wonderful lady who deserves all the best the world has to offer, but several impatient woment waiting on him. ;)

    Darn it all SHOES! I was imagining a snowy sleigh ride and a PROPOSAL! But Valentines day is coming up... that would be PERFECT! I think he is enjoying the build of suspense. I can just imagine the bottle of emotional release when he finally does it! Can you just carry a video camera around with you every day so we don't miss out on anything????

    fret not, he'll deliver when you least expect, that's always the best way, keep us posted. :)

    @ all: thanks. ;) it's interesting to be experiencing this a second time ... probably warrants an entirely new blog post.

    It's not a second time. It's the FIRST time. Because he is your soulmate. That other falderal was just a bunch of hooey in some other world ;-)

    Love youuuuuuuuuuuuuu!
