OK So I have somewhat fallen off the face of the....well, forum. I have been looking and I have been commenting a little but life has gotten busy. It has been a terrible year for me, lots of health stuff...nothing life threatening but feeling awful. Finally figured out in July it was celiac. DH and I had a bit of a rough patch with me dealing with my own issues with the health stuff and still trying to keep on top of a house and three busy little boys. Well, things have definately been better lately with us and I am starting to feel a little better too...but that may still take some time. I have apparently had this my whole life and my body needs time to heal. Anyway, on to much BETTER things. The only surprise DH has EVER given me was my engagement ring...and we were living together at the time. I knew it would happen but didn't know when. Well, last night I was in a really bad mood. I had my friend's 40th birthday party and my babysitter cancelled 2 hours before. I called every backup I knew and noone could make it. DH was in connecticut for his work holiday party. He couldn't leave for this. Well, I put the kids to bed and watched tv until he came home. When he got home, he told me he had gone shopping at a store called Mitchell's in Westport... for himself . I tried not to be disappointed. I knew he was close to Hermes out there. He know I wanted something for Hanukkah. But to him buying an enamel bracelet is a major purchase. And he said that was what he originally had in his hand...So he brought the bag over for me to see. And starts yelling about how the store put the wrong box in his bag...and it is orange!! And BIG!!!! DH NEVER buys big orange boxes...and never surprises me!!
