I Want an Ice Tray, Not a Whole Bag

Another addition to the Dirty saga. I promise that this blog won't turn into the Dirty page, but I need to share this with you all.

Since my last post, I have distanced myself a bit from Dirty and our day-to day struggles. This has made him become more attentive and super aware. Honestly, that was not my intention, but a totally unexpected bonus!

On Sunday, I did a 3 mile walk for a family friend who has Spinal Muscular Atrophy to raise money for an elevator installed in her home. It was a really great day, and we raised almost 85 thousand dollars for her. Tyrone is paying off. I did the walk in 45 minutes, which is a great time for me.

Anyway, back to my Dirty story. I get home and I hear talking in my apartment. I walk in, and find Dirty in the kitchen cooking. I was surprised to see him there to say the least. He told me that he wanted to surprise me with dinner. I went to take a shower and noticed that the bed in my bedroom was made, and that the clothes that were strewn all over the room were gone. Shrugged and went about my bidness. Went into the bathroom and saw that it was immaculate. Down to BLUE toilet water that was definitely not there before. I asked Dirty about it and he told me he cleaned up a little. So I was shocked.

After my shower I to get my blog fix and read PostSecret. I turn on the monitor and what is staring me in the face? THIS:

Now, I start freaking out. Dirty was calling my name, and I minimized the picture and picked up a magazine really fast. He hustled me out of the room with some crap excuse, and stayed behind to shut down the computer. Fool, doesn't he know about the cookies I have saved on the computer? Anyway, of course after he left, I went directly back to the website and examined it more closely. Don't get me wrong, it is a gorgeous ring, but a bit much don't you think? Here is another picture:

Opinions? The logical part of me is to tell him not to spend so much on a ring, so that we can have money to spend on a house, other part is telling me to stop jumping to conclusions. By the way, there was a contact name and information on the sticky pad in front of the computer. Help!

OMG that is GORGEOUS! I am sure it's not that large in "person"... I bet it looks very classy and nice. I'm in awe, seriously. Take it and run girlfriend. Let him worry about how to pay for it :) and just enjoy the moment. I'd KILL to come home to a clean house like that - just once - what a nice gift that would be. This is a great example of how alone time really pays off. I'm learning that a bit myself this week. Kevin (husband) has been out of town all week long. I missed him something fierce the first few days, but now I'm pretty comfortable. He's been calling twice a day, he misses me terribly. Gotta love when a good plan works to your advantage :)

That is really pretty. Maybe he got a clue...

Next time he feels like cleaning, send him to my house :) J isn't capable of cleaning without me asking him to.

Woo Hooo How exciting!!!! I think it's a bit ornate for my tastes, but maybe he was just looking at a really expensive thing for comparison?? Do you have big fingers??

Hmmmm...You know I am so happy for you that he is finally 'dipping his toe in the water' but that ring scares me.

I love the 2.7 caret center stone but the other junk....eek!

But we had this discussion. I think it is a great start, yay!!!

I better be front and center at the wedding...

LOL, I love how you pretended to read a magazine really quick! That is so exciting that he is making this real for you guys. And that ring is HUGE! It's gorgeous and unless he consults you on a budget, zip your lips!
