So things have been going great with the SO while we have entered this new “pre-pop” stage of our relationship. We have a timeline and timeline (Sept til the end of the workd 12/21/12 with a layover period of the end of Feb.) and that has helped a hell of a lot with my nerves. But often I find I have no one in Real Life who I can talk about all the crazyness I have been feeling.
But last night I got to hang out with a soon-to-be Bride friend of mine while we dished about my waiting and her planning. It felt so good to speak to someone in the flesh about the stuff we talk about here in The Hive.
She gave me such a great, possitive outlook.
So my goal is to make it through the end of september without initiating any engagment talk.
I think I can make it.

I wish the very best of luck!
I try to just make it one day at a time without saying anything, LOL. And sometimes I don’t make it. Then I’ll be doing good & go a whole week without saying something, and then SO will say something about marriage and I’ll be through the ringer again.

Ahaha! I’m glad I’m not the only one with the crazy valve.
Well, good luck! I know you can do it, you always have the hive to get your through. 🙂

I usually have one crazy burst a month….with a few waiting complaints tossed in for good measure 🙂
The highlight of this week…turning on the TV and seeing a engagement ring commercial, which has me turning to the BF and saying, “Seeeee! Even the world knows it’s time! And I have to be reminded daily!!”
He obviously just rolled his eyes and walked away on that one.
Getting the chance to talk it out with a friend in real life definitely helps keep things calmed…there is no way I can make it to 2013 without some outbursts!

@girlygirl885: LOL! OMG I was horrible all throughout the holiday season and until v-day. every commercial was an engagement commercial. The first year I started noticing i would sigh audiably, last year I added “Oh…thats so nice” AFTER EVERY COMMERCIAL!!!! lol. I think this year I will make a big fuss over changing the channel after every commercial that features a ring.
