If some of you bees remember, I mentioned that we ordered the ring in March. It’s being made in the States, and they told us it can take time because of the border/customs to Canada. My understanding was that it was to take 4-6 weeks to come in. Last weekend was 5 weeks, and still no ring. ****sigh****
At first when they told me 4-6 weeks, I wanted to yell “what!! My SO is FINALLY ready and you want to make me wait another month and a half!!!” But obviously I can’t do that, so I kept my cool, and smiled, and told SO how happy I was that we had made this decision and that I couldn’t wait to make it “official”.
I haven’t even brought it up with him during the whole 5 weeks!!!! Yeah. I’ve gone beyond my limit and out of my comfort zone in the last month. Finally, this past weekend, when it didn,t happen, I mentioned it to SO, and he was very supportive but confirmed that the ring hasn’t come in yet. He seemed innocently surprised though, that I was so disappointed. He’s like “but they said 4-6 weeks, and it’s only been 5 weeks”. LOL Yeah, but I was hoping for the 4-5 weeks. Not the 6 weeks or more…. We joked, and he made me laugh about the whole thing saying that I sounded like someone who was waiting for a kidney or something “life and death” (I bet I did actually!!). We also briefly discussed an approximate date for the wedding which was nice. It made me feel a whole lot better that we were are on the same side 🙂 Bless his heart.
Obviously, I am *reaaaaaaally* hoping the ring comes in before this Thursday (because everything is closed on Friday for the holiday). But at the same time, I know it’s not a life and death situation, and a few more weeks won’t kill me. This long wait, at the end of a longer wait, will just make me more happy and grateful once I can say officially, “we are engaged”.
