I know that I have been neglectful of the Daily Days (I feel like I have a post like this on a weekly basis...) but in my defense I have been battling strep-throat and I have been trying to medicate myself to prevent from having coughing (I always cringe when people cough and don't get a mint/drink or something and out of respect for my co-workers I stayed home part of last week) spats that could rival a lifelong smoker. I went home from work early on Friday (my supervisor told me that I looked awful, and suggested that I go home....) and sat in my chair all afternoon. I was totally expecting to delay plans with the BF since I felt like a "whipped chicken" (Sissy, my grandmother always made that reference when we were sick) but he insisted that we still have our Friday night date. I rallied myself about 4ish (after watching RHODC/Jersey Shore) and got myself together. I felt sickly (and was completely groggy after my daily dose of medicine) but I found the strength to get dressed and look presentable. The BF was being extra cagey when he picked me up. He was all nervous and fidgety acting and I even commented, "What's wrong with you? You look so nervous, are you getting sick?" He laughed it off and said that he had a great day at work and was looking forward to a relaxing weekend.
After a few moments of awkward looks and more questions we headed out for what I thought was going to be a relaxing "normal" Friday evening. When we got into the car the BF handed me a personalized hardcover book of our courtship. Inside the book there are pictures and special memories of the past two years. I could kind of sense that the BF was still antsy as he was still dodging questions (I ask LOTS of questions...) and I knew something was up. After several meaningful stops (I will not share the details as they are special to the BF and I) we ended up at our favorite restaurant. After being seated in a private room with a table set for two (the waitress was also acting nervous) we enjoyed a nice dinner. At the end of dinner (before the cheesecake arrived) the BF made some reference to the book that he made and ended up pulling his chair next to mine so we could flip through the final pages together.
