Sunday I couldn’t wait for Match to get home. I kept wishing that he were there with me when I was out grocery shopping and running errands. I wished we could go to the Halloween store together and pick out a costume. It’s crazy that Halloween is right around the corner. Even harder to believe when Safeway already has its artificial christmas trees and Christmas decorations all over the place. I really wish they’d put that stuff away until at least Thanksgiving. I love me some Christmas, but isn’t it a bit soon?
Anyways, I digress. I think I may have wished a little too hard for Match to be with me, because as soon as I got home from shopping, I had a text from Match saying he hurt his foot and needed a ride home. I called him up, and turns out he rolled his ankle really badly and wasn’t sure if it was broken. When I asked what heroic thing he was doing when it happened, he confessed sheepishly that he was playing basketball with the firefighters for their physical training. D’oh!
So I picked him up, and played nurse all afternoon. His foot was insanely swollen, twice as big as his other foot! He went to the doctor on Monday, and it’s not broken, but it’s a bad sprang, and he needs a walking cast. He’s not able to do much for the next six months! 🙁 Now I know I wished we’d have more time together, but I had visions of going on fall hikes and going for runs together. This is NOT what I had in mind. Still, it was nice to spend Sunday afternoon together, injured or not.
He happily listened while I recounted my weekend. I told him how I started the day off by going on a long walk with Outdoor Girl, who I hadn’t seen in a long time, to my night with Birthday Twin. He made me come lay down on the couch with him and he snuggled me close and said, “I’m so lucky to have you. Who would ever pass you up? Seriously marry me, you’re my dream girl!” Then he got all serious and said he’ll propose better than that. Still it gave me goosebumps, and I love that he’s thinking along those lines. He laughed and asked if he was ruining the future moment with all these fake proposals. I said he’s just the boy who cried proposals and he better cut it out or I wouldn’t believe him when he actually does it. 😉
