- Wedding: January 2014
Okay so FMIL sent me this exact message today “Did you guys pick a date or year?”, 3 days after the proposal. FI is active military so we can’t set dates till we find out his next orders. I guess I should also mention, we’ve been together a little teeny bit less than a year. We’re big ole’ adults in the big scary world and everyone seems pretty on board with it and excited (give or take a few unimportant people) but this message from FMIL weirded me out.. Isnt it strange that she asked me “or year?” Like uh yeah? probably this upcoming year as in 2014 beginning 2015 like normal engagements go? I don’t know if I’m just being defensive because Ive been preparing myself for the “its too soon” comments or what.
I did respond with “no we haven’t yet, can’t really until he finds out his deployment location/dates etc. should know in the next upcoming weeks hopefully. I’m sure within 2014 or beginning or 2015 though as for the year question? I’ll be sure to keep you in the loop though.”
Fi told me I sounded a bit passive aggressive and she didn’t respond so maybe she thought so too but I didnt really care as it was a really weird and awkward question. Now I’m nervous because Ill be spending turkey day with them w/o FI and itll be the first time Ive seen the family since the proposal and I really don’t want to sit through it if they aren’t on the bandwagon.
Am I overthinking it or was that a snarky question. Ream me out bees, I’m about as hormonal as they come right now thanks to Mother Nature so if I am being a crazy broad..please let me know.
