- Wedding: September 2013
I’m new here, it’s my first post. I have gathered by reading some of the other boards that the notion/topic of “waiting” is hardly original news, but my goodness! This whole “waiting” thing is dreadful.
We been together just under two years and officially moved in together 6 months ago when we moved to another state for his job. We both have known that we are “it” for one another since the beginning. He almost proposed to me 3 months into our relationship, but we decided to grow more and wait (grow together, not necessarily in age as I am 26 and he is 29).
Well, I have been doing most of the laundry (surprise, surprise) and last month I found a black velvet box in her underwear drawer while putting his boxers away. I didn’t peek – I am proud.
So! Now I know it is here, and now it is a month later, and mother of god this waiting thing is awful! And he doesn’t know that I know!! He knows that I know that my mother offered him my Grandma’s diamond, and he knows that I know that my ma offered to have it reset. Our moms (both of them, together) are coming to visit us for vacation next week, but I don’t think he’ll propose because their vacation was set long before my ma offered him the diamond. Bah….I am now making myself crazy almost every moment of the day.
We’re in a much, much smaller city than we used to be in, and we are still making new friends out here, so it is less easy for me to distract myself with other things!!
Any advice Bees? How does one relax and let this happen? What can I do to distract myself (I work often, I exercise often, and I read all the time), any ideas?
And thank you 😉
