- Wedding: March 2015
We just closed on our condo! I feel giddy and not like doing work at all.
In waiting-related news, the SO is going to ask my dad for permission today! It’s my dad’s bday so we’re going over to my parents’ house for dinner. I’m just worried about how they will react to us living together before marriage. I know that they will be happy about him asking permission since they been expecting/wanting it for ages. But they are pretty conservative and our hope was that it will be ok because we will be engaged and the SO actually bought a condo for us. Anyone else have this issue?
Also, I’ve posted before on my crazy mom but she needs to start trusting that we know what we’re doing and that SO is going to eventually propose. She calls me yesterday saying that I should take down a picture postcard that I have of my friends’ baby because apparently, whenever SO sees the picture, he will think that I want to have kids right away and feel pressured, which will make him think of how a family costs money and thus deter him from proposing. She says that if she was a guy, that’s what she would be thinking and so in her mind, what she thinks makes sense. WTF!!!!! She is so overly worried and constantly thinking of possible reasons as to why SO has not proposed and it’s effing stupid. Just last week she said to tell him that she will pay for our entire wedding because she thinks that he is worried about potential wedding costs.
She’s done nothing but implicitly pressure us the entire time. Instead of just listening to what I tell her, she makes her own assumptions as to everything. Gahhhh!!!! Ok rant over.
