So as many of you may recall, the BF refuses to provide ANY details on when/if we'll get married and what he thinks about that. It makes me slightly (okay, really) crazy because I don't have the security of knowing that we're on the same path; that's really all I want, and I'd be happy with that until whenever.
BUT, in the last week, he's:
* made several comments about "when we have kids..." while talking about finances
* made a spread sheet (no joke) with graphs and charts about my potential earned income at a job I'd like to get while talking about extra money spent on tuition,vs.income, vs. earned income, vs. CHILDREN. (It may sound really weird, but it was totally adorable, and we talk about money a lot).
* made some comment about how I probably wouldn't like to get engaged what with my huge crazy student teaching semester coming up. (I responded it'd be a relief to actually know what he was thinking--it'd make me MORE, not less productive)
I just sat down next to him on the couch and he was fiddling around on his laptop. I said, hey, whatcha up to, and looked over at his computer. Normally, this is NOT a big deal at all. We do this all the time. He moves his computer away, but not before I glance at his page and it had diamonds in the address.
You know, like shiny sparkly diamonds...
So please tell me to get my head out of my butt, that he's going to buy me another pair of diamond earrings that come in a ring-sized box like last year (that should be illegal, btw), that he's not ever going to propose, and that I'll get a horse because I want one. Preferably a Percheron. Because if I'm not getting something sparkly, I better get an awesome huge draft horse instead.
I'd be much less crazy if I just knew we were on the same page about our relationship status...
And now, for good measure, a picture of the engagement pony I would like:
