- Wedding: February 2013
I just need to vent for a moment, for 2 reasons:
1) Last night, Boyfriend or Best Friend and I were talking, mostly about my waiting and impatience, and he attempted to comfort me by letting me know that he was going to go pick up my ring soon! But by “pick it up”, he meant he was going to order it. Which is fine, progress is progress, but he’d originally said that he was going to give it to me on NYE or earlier, and, uh, that’s in 2 weeks. And its almost Christmas (ie jewelry stores are crazy busy, he didn’t seem to get this). And I happen to know for a fact that the jeweler is out of stock of my size. (I went in to try it on a little over a week ago). So, pretty sure I won’t be getting a ring this year at all, even though I was promised it 🙁
2) Boyfriend or Best Friend talked to his mom about his (vague) plans, thinking, of course, that she’d keep it to herself so we could announce it ourselves. But apparently she’s now told most of his extended family that we’re getting engaged very, very soon. I mean, I guess they don’t know *exactly* when, but they’re all aware of BF’s plans and expecting it to happen any day now :/
Just… ugh. Is anyone else NOT looking forward to another round of why-aren’t-you-engaged-yet lectures at family Christmas parties?
