The Grand Gesture <3

Wow. Just wow. I am a little blown away right now. I didn't see this coming at all ... My heart is floating right now.

So my Friday started out pretty well. I had an appointment with my Nutritionist. My first since early December ... I was nervous. But I got some great news. My measurements were all identical and I was even down another 2kgs :) And I haven't been trying very hard lately. So that was awesome.

And then after I got back, I was sitting at my desk and I got a call from reception. There was something for me to collect. Awesome, maybe my Springleap TShirts have arrived?

Nope. There were 2 dozen red roses in a vase. Cue a very shocked look on my face ... The card just had a link to You Tube. I raced upstairs back to my desk. Already piquing interest on my way ...

I opened the video and saw The Trucker. I freaked out a little. My heart rate elevated. It wasn't long before I was crying too ...

Today I experienced the grandest gesture of my life so far. It was incredible and I watched it many times before I could believe it. In fact I think I'll go watch it again now ... (I'd share the link because it is *amazing* but he specially asked me not to).

Romance, it is not dead. I feel like I'm living in a movie. Seriously, this sort of thing only happens there, right?

Wow. He wants me back, he's been working thru his issues with his therapist, he loves and misses me. I know, there is still a road to walk from here, things aren't magically going to be perfect now ... but he wants to walk that path with me. And I think you can take it as a given that he knows what my minimum requirements for that path are (that was in the video too!).

I don't think this weekend is going to be quite as interesting as you think, we both already have plans ... but I'll see him a bit later and hopefully start figuring out where to from here.

Oh, and the bizarre thing is I've been getting more & more annoyed with him this week over the Twitter thing I briefly mentioned before. It sent me for a loop. I am his only twitter follower and he started tweeting a daily message that I couldn't allow myself to read anything into, but it was bloody hard! It started on Monday with the word "Hope". On Tuesday he said "is the little voice you hear whisper 'maybe'". See why I was getting sad and annoyed. Wednesday was just the word "Ouch" ... my blog title that morning. And then yesterday he said "Can you wait one more day? Actually two". Cryptic. Later that day was a song: "♫ Hoobastank - The reason". Naturally, because I'm a masochist, I watched the video and listened to the lyrics. I hated myself afterwards. It hurt.

I was ready to unfollow him on Monday morning if he didn't stop. Good thing I didn't see his tweet this morning before his surprise arrived. I might've unfollowed him there and then! It was "I love the smell of roses in the morning! :)". #sigh

<3 Happy Friday, everyone :)
