I never thought it would happen to me… September 7, 2010Posted by jeneypeney in all growed up, freakin' weekend, sentimental stuff, weddng madness.
At 4:30pm on Friday, September 3rd, I left my office early and set out to Rugby, North Dakota to visit The Actual for the long weekend.
The three and a half hour drive through the vast farmsteads of NoDak leave a lot of time for thinking. Between flipping through my iPod, cursing my Siruis radio, and weaving my way through construction I made a mental list of things I needed to do when I got back to Fargo:
Price out new tires… go grocery shopping… order The Actual’s birthday present… begin reading for my Athletic Facility Management class… get a jump-start on research for the second thesis of my life…
I finally arrived in the geographical center of North America and made my way to the only apartment complex in town. I grabbed my bags and trudged up to the third floor where my significant other waited patiently for my arrival – probably pwning noobs in Halo or rocking out to Beatle’s Rockband.
We did all our schmoopy hellos and began to tell him about the drive and how much I hated driving on Route 2 in the afternoon towards his place as it is an East-West highway and I’m driving west and the sun is in my eyes the ENTIRE TWO HOURS I DRIVE ON IT.
That’s when I notice he’s got that shit-eating-I’m-up-to-something grin on his face.
“What’s going on?”
That’s when I finally notice he is holding something between us – right against my heart.
I guess I need to add “plan a wedding” to that list of things I need to do.
PS – I will post the winner of my package contest tomorrow!
