Maybe it’s the rain but I’m having a rough waiting morning.
I think I’ve done a pretty fair job of keeping my crazy in a bag when it comes to the waiting. Though he did catch me cruising cheapcaribbean.com for honeymoon research (he smiled and said he was excited too). So I have NO worries that it’s not going to happen but I’ve convinced myself foolishly that it will happen over our Thanksgiving trip. We are going to New England together to visit my the majority of my family that he’s never met.
I don’t have much to go on except gut instinct and a comment here and there from my SO that’s he excited to go. A friend pointed out that it could just be that he IS excited to go and not because he has something planned. The more I’ve thought about it, the more it makes sense. He has said that “marriage has been on my mind frequently and it’ll happen 🙂 “
Bleh. Just one of those sulky days I guess. Thanks for listening though!

Yeah, it can not even matter if he is just as excited about getting engaed as you are…a Bad waiting day is a bad waiting day.
It’s the weather. Have some Hot Cocoa and read the paper. Whenever I get too wrapped up on rings/engagement/wedding/marraige stuff I read the New York Times. Readin about the sh*tty problems of the world gives me some prospecitive.

A sucky waiting day is a sucky waiting day. I second Sapphire-Dreamer’s suggestion – keep yourself distracted and have a cozy, comfy drink, and try to get it out of your head. Imagine how happy you will be once it comes true, and what your life together will be like – that should put you in a good mood!

My SO told me yesterday that he is “thinking about proposing soon.” Needless to say, I have been having a bad waiting day as well. I just want a ring!

Bad waiting days are the worst.. but if you do something you enjoy (read a book, watch your favorite tv show, get a pumpkin latte) you’ll feel a lot better. Try not to stress too much on whether or not it will happen while your in New England. Just have a good time and enjoy yourself. Then if it happens, it will be that much sweeter. 🙂

hahaha thanks everyone 🙂
Instead of all of the good advice above, a crisis happened in my family that I have to direct all of my energy to. So in a way my mind is taken off of waiting! I’m exhausted though!

@Leelee26: I feel for you and can relate.
My So has the ring and is waiting for the right time to give it to me. He also may have something planned etc… which i don’t know cuz he tries to throw me off the tracks. It just really annoys me that he is just having too much fun with seeing me miserable. I wanna punch him!
Last nigth he said that he is planning to do it on Friday, I told him that I have a girl get together on Friday which he knew for sure because I told him few times. He then turned around and said.. oh yeah, well i guess it’s your fault it’s not going to happen then! I have a funny guy on my hands. Smurking around and acting like he is the king of the jungle! LOL
This week has been specially tough on me. I was doing great till Monday. Sunday I thought he was gonna do it but it turned out to be a trick (teasing part of his plan)
All this week we barely saw eachother and when we did, he was concentrating on work and other stuff. Tonight he has a work function till very late so me and the dog are alone – again. Tomorrow his kids are coming back from their mothers and will stay with us for a week, so that week will be a definite “no”…. My family is having problems and my mother is asking me for money which I don’t have, my brother fighting with me over property abroad, I ordered a nail stamping kit to make me happy but it got destroyed in the mail, my I-Phone this morning fell on the ground and the glass is completelly destroyed!
I am due for some HAPPY. The only person that has the power to make me happy is dangling the HAPPY in front of me like a piece of meat in front of a lion. I am really trying hard here but I am really at the end of my patience and i’m gonna bite his hand off! LOL

@Lulume: Your man better have something extra special planned with the way he’s teasing you! That’s rough and I would totally support biting his hand. You definitely sound like you’re having a rough day too ((hugs))
At lunch my SO called to talk about what’s going on in my family and I cried which really helped everything. Then I texted him later telling him I had a pit in my stomach and he replied, “I have a shovel.” The sweetness of it made me tear up again. ((hugs)) , that one was for me.

I know how you feel. The waiting days ebb and flow don’t they? It does sound like he’s on his way to asking so keep your chin up and try to focus on your relationship and how good it is now. Maybe your gut instinct is right who knows……
I’m having a semi-difficult waiting day myself but had a period of 2.5 weeks where I was doing really good and going with the flow. Tomorrow is another day and it might be an easier waiting day.
