I’ve been sick for a couple of days now, nasty little bug I caught from my son. since then i’ve been in bed, surrounded by tissue and meds, perfect timing to celebrate my 29th birthday 🙂
I got up a bit late today expecting to see my family and friends posting on my facebook wall. nope, not one single post. nearly 5pm now still nothing. needless to say i plan on deactivating my profile. you dont care, why bother? I like/comment to you, you cant aknowledge my existence for one single day? ouch. its even worse when most of them are *family*
but im happy to atleast get some birthday love from my parents, and SO. turns out he has to work till midnight, but he managed to stop by before work to give me a Bday card and a spa finders gift card. in otherwords there will be no proposal today.
he works/lives over 1 hour away from me so i dont expect him to come by later, it will be too late. my sickness isnt exactly a mood setter anyway.
I really expected him to ask after christmas but nothing.. this is heartbreaking bees. i dont know what to do. after he left i just cried my eyes out. and im not a crier. 5years with this guy and still ringless.
my walk date is 29 days away i just hope that im strong enough to do what i said i would do.

I am sorry you’re hurting. Waiting is really hard, I know. You feel sick and forgotten, go ahead and cry, but then get back up and dust yourself off and take your gorgeous self to the spa!

Is your birthdate posted on your FB? Mine wasn’t and I didn’t realize it. I had kept it hidden for security and of course no one posted! I was so upset!
Anyways maybe many of your family don’t get on FB that often? Hang in there and feel better soon!

If your birthday is clearly posted, that’s horrible! I’m so sorry.
I hope he proposes by then…I would hate seeing anybody actually have to use their walk dates.

Sorry to hear about your birthday so far…perhaps some of your friends and family don’t want to post on fb (I rarely use it myself even for a friend’s b-day). The day isn’t yet over, and I’m on the East Coast! It sucks having a b-day near a holiday – mine was near x-mas, so that may have something to do with it.
Try to keep strong with the waiting, we’re here for you!

Happy birthday!!! And the most important people remembered, so yay to that. It must be yuck to not have anyone remember and wish you on your fb though – maybe they are planning a surprise party? I hope that is it!
And I’m sorry your SO did not propose. From my 8 million threads you know I’m in a similar situation, but the important thing for you to remember is that you’re still Nicki who is fabulous and all kinds of amazing and a great mom to her little son. I think as a waiting bee it is easy to forget that – I know that is certainly the case for me. Crossing my fingers that your SO proposes soon, and that you won’t reach your walk date ringless. If that does happen though, I hope you at least reach it strong and with conviction about the right thing to do.
Sending good birthday vibes your way!

#3 I wish I could make you a cake but you live very far away from me and I am a terrible baker
#4 I wish we could marry each other because our men are obviously oblivious to how fabulous we are

Happy Birthday! I know when you’re sick you just want love & attention & you haven’t gotten much today, but keep hope about the proposal! I’m sure he’s got something great planned

thanks everyone for the birthday wishes and support. i think i needed someone to talk me off of the the cliff today. i havent mentioned the M word for a month now and i would like to make it to friday atleast without saying anything.
i was upset about the facebook thing but ive decided to keep my profile intact, a few people have posted since. now i know where i stand with the others and thats ok.
