Some of those are easy and one is inexcusable. You have been with Craig how long and this is on your list: "• A man to buy me jewelry"? I have gotten gorgeous jewelery for my wife under $50 that was real (auctions and antiques). It takes a little work but it can be done. What in the heck are you doing to complete your dreams?

I should be more specific. Craig bought me jewelry for Valentine's day 07! I got pearls. I'd like jewelry out of the blue.

This year so far I've:
1. Submitted a technical paper for publication and gotten it published.
2. Spoke at a conference.
3. Went to Belize on a whim instead of a cheaper vacation with my Mom.
4. Sent Bel a ticket to come visit.
5. Read 5 new fantasy series based on recommendations.
6. Contributed to the MS Society and exceeded my fund raising goal, leading as team captain.
7. Got my extra skin fixed.
8. Spent a day watching figure skating with my sister, just us.
9. Maintained at a healthy BMI and did 16 weeks of physical therapy.
10. Read several books and did 6 weeks of therapy, which actually seems to be helping!
11. Learned how to make 3 new recipes.

So all in all, considering the chronic pain I'm really happy about my progress towards completing my dreams. The financial stuff is not doing as well, but that's the case for most everyone.

Do you want jewelry out of the blue or do you want a piece of jewlery for an occasion? 07 was two years ago. Have you effectively communicated your wants/needs to Craig?

Nope, I have not effectively communicated my wants to him about this because I've been so obsessed about wanting nothing but marriage which luckily I've moved past now since we talked things out at therapy. I should let him know! I like the pearls because I wear them with work stuff, but I'd like something more casual to wear on a day I want to feel close to him.
