Just kind of an update, sorry I’ve been so quiet lately! I’ve been taking things in stride these past few weeks, trying to keep my mind on other things, and so I just haven’t been here as often.
Things have been better for me here lately as there have been several signs pointing to a proposal on the horizon. I’m not getting too exciting just yet, but I am hopeful.
As some of you might remember from a previous post, my SO asked me a few weeks ago what day our first date was on. It was March 14. It was really interesting that he asked me this because our anniversary has never been that big of a deal for him. He usually doesn’t even realize our anniversary is coming up until I say something, and we never really do anything to celebrate. We just never make a fuss over it. But this year he asked, which makes me think he wants to plan something (what, I have no idea, but SOMETHING)
Since then there have been a couple of other things. A few weekends ago SO excused himself from the house on a Saturday for a few hours to supposedly meet his mom at the mall to help her shop for something. It’s not uncommon for him to do this if she’s buying furniture or something that she needs to put in his truck, but this time around it seemed a little fishy. For one thing, there’s nothing at the mall that she couldn’t fit in her own vehicle, and secondly when I showed interest in what they’d be doing he didn’t offer any additional details. So I’m not even sure that’s what he was actually doing at all. Then that same weekend, he apparently asked my dad for his blessing (!!!!).
Again, I definitely don’t have my hopes up, but at the same time I’m sort of casually counting down the days until March 14, wondering in the back of my head if my wait is ending soon.
What do you guys think?

Yay! That is so great! It sounds like it is definitely is coming! Even if it’s not on March 14th, it sounds like it’s definitely in his mind and he is taking actions to make it happen. That is so exciting!!!

That all sounds pretty promising to me, specially if he asked your dad. I really hope it happens. However if not on March 14, then at least you know he is working towards it. Just enjoy your anniversary day regardless

@MisfitPrincess: Honestly, I would be getting excited! It does sound promising, and even if it’s not on 3/14, it’s super exciting to know he already asked your dad for his blessing! 🙂

I think there is a good chance you are right! Sounds promising.
You never know, your ring might be SO BIG that he needed to take his truck. Just a thought.

@MisfitPrincess: Aww. Like you said don’t get your hopes up for it being done on that day. My SO was driving me crazy and our anniversary was yesterday. I thought he was going to do it then bc he came home early from work and told me to get dressed up( which he never does) and took me to a really nice place to eat! So just be happy but not to happy ( counting down the days) or else you will be sad the next day like me lol…good luck!

Thanks Bees for your feedback and all your good luck wishes and crossed fingers! 🙂
Like I said, I’m definitely not losing sleep over it, I’ve thought it was coming so many times before and then felt stupid over it. It is promising though that he actually has asked my dad now, that means it HAS to be coming soon (at least I hope so, or else all SO has accomplished is putting both me AND my parents in a horrible ‘waiting’ hold, haha)
@soyjoy222: LOL! That would be one serious rock!

Ummmm, so last night SO and I were at the store looking at stuff. I want to start saving for a Netbook computer that I can take with me to work and take on trips and stuff, so we were looking at them and I was playing with them and ooohing and ahhhing, then SO says to me that if I can wait a few months he will get my Netbook for me for my birthday. So sweet! But that wasn’t all, then he said “That way, you can save your extra money on this paycheck and go get your nails done”
I know he probably didn’t mean ANYTHING by it, but my stupid girl-brain is starting to kick in a little now, hahahaha 🙂
