- Wedding: May 2015
This is going to be a vent. Somewhat pointless, but it needs to go somewhere.
In April, on my birthday, after we had been discussing wedding, engagement, ring stuff, my SO gave me a birthday card that promised “some fun surprises” in the year ahead. There aren’t too many options for what that could mean in our lives other than getting engaged.
In May we went on a romantic trip to one of our favorite places. Nothing.
Now, we seem to talk about our hypothetical wedding and kids a lot, but nothing is concrete. My schedule is bonkers and I won’t be able to be home much except for weekends for the rest of the summer and into the school year (grad school internship and classes), so other than the last week of August there won’t be any time we can go anywhere fun, or even be home together for more than a few days at a time. He suggested vaguely that we do something fun (like, go somewhere) that last week of August between my internship ending and school starting. When I asked him is he had anything in mind, he didn’t have any ideas. So that’s no good (though we probably will go somewhere different for a few days).
So basically there is no possible time for anything interesting to occur. Add that to the problem of when could he see my parents to ask their blessing/whatever, since he almost never sees my family (I don’t think any of them would be comfortable with him calling them and asking over the phone), and I’m left wondering. I suppose if it happens sometime between now and next April it will be after some holiday when my SO and my parents see each other. Unless he asks my dad out to dinner/lunch or something, which I doubt he would do considering past history/circumstances/distance.
I guess I’m grumpy about it because last night had one of those perfect moments when you think it might happen, and it didn’t. I tried to push the idea out of my head and just enjoy things, which I mostly did, but now it’s annoying me. GRRRR.
Plus my favorite Etsy jeweler has a new ring design that I WANT and I want to show it to him, but I don’t want to seem like I bring it up all the time. Garumph.
End rant, thanks for listening. 😛
