So after a crazy stressful day and month overall, I have good things to come from it.
#1: Got a raise.
#2: I have something extra nice planned for my boyfriend. I recently fucked up his birthday by assuming he was serious when he said he wasn’t actually all that into them. So I got him really thoughtless presents and he tried to accept them with glee, but by the end of the night revealed he was disappointed. I told him I should have known that since we are so alike, he would want something very special because he deserves it. I hate that I let him down. But now that we’ve gotten past that, I’ve put a great deal of creativity and care into what I’m going to do to make up his birthday. Since he doesn’t have my tumblr, I’m going to brag about my awesome surprise plans here.
SO(warning, cheese approaching at a dangerous velocity) there was this time when we were watching the movie “Up”, right? Well, he said to me as we watched the bittersweet first 10 minutes come to an end, “I feel like you’re my Ellie.” It made my heart so warm and I fell even harder in love. Now you have the back-story. My idea, is to get three large cardboard boxes, big enough to fit a large mirror or painting. With those boxes, I will first tape them together from one side, then, paint the house from “Up” on the other side. Then, I’m going to prop it up inside my short ceilinged attic. I will have 30 helium balloons floating above the cardboard. I’ll cut out the door so he can open it to find me on the other side, with me waiting there, with wine, a cake, card and something else I haven’t yet thought of. I’m going to tell him he’s my Carl.
