So, the ring is on the way. It shipped last week. This much I know. I don’t know where it is being delivered or when it will arrive. Nor do I know when he’ll propose… midweek? Christmas? NYE?
Knowing this much info is KILLING me. Every day is passing by sooo slowly. I don’t have anyone to vent about this with besides you guys … so… here I am.
I know, it isn’t a big deal … it’s going to happen. But OHMYGOSH! It’s going to happen!!!!!!
Any of you bees who are In The Know, dying with anticipation?

I too am a waiting bee in soooooooo much anticipation. I know exactly what you are feeling. But, at least you are closer than I am. My SO has not purchased the ring yet ( at least I don’t think he has). We have looked at numerous rings, he even went to a jewelery story that I suggested to find the ring that I was in love with.
So, I know its coming. But I do not know what is taking so long to get the ring. Are you telling me that once he has the ring, then I have to wait for him to propose? OMGEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, the waiting is terrible :-))))

Yayyyy, that is an exciting update!!! Maybe you will happen to be the one who has to sign for it when it arrives 😉 I hope you aren’t waiting for it too much longer!
I know mine has been paid for, but don’t know if it has shipped yet, you lucky duck! Here’s hoping our proposals don’t require too much secretive planning aka more waiting =)

I’m not an “in the know” bee, but I do know that you should savor these moments! Once it comes, it only comes once! Kind of like the days as a child when you are dying for Christmas to arrive and then it does and is gone and over so quickly. Try to stop and enjoy each day. 🙂

I’m dying with you! I’m sooo sure SO has my ring, but when I will see it again is beyond me, and that is what is bugging me inside! And I can’t just ask him either..

@spaneshal: I have never seen the ring in person. Is it wrong that I just want to see it once it arrives and then he can hide it and wait to propose? He’d NEVER go for that! Ha. And I know if I just saw it I would refuse to take it off and then THERE GOES MY PROPOSAL.
So here I am, experiencing the ups and downs of OMG WHEN WILL IT HAPPEN!? Not tonight, I’m making us dinner and he is working late. We don’t have any plans all week except a work holiday party on Thursday and then Christmas Eve and Day with his family. Sigh.

I am dying too. Today is the worst so far! I feel like the best thing in the world would be a Christmas proposal and feel like a physically need to gag myself to stop myself from just asking him if it’s going to happen these holidays.
I think is worse because I’ve always secretly dreamed of a Christmas proposal and being able to share such a special time with my family…
I have a feeling he is going to wait until our holiday at the end of January though and I really think another month will drive me even more insane!! Ahhh haha 🙂

@miss_blondie86: aw! A Christmas proposal would be great! I hope he surprises you with one. Waiting another month would be killer!!! Then again, a proposal oHolliday would be sooo romantic! Good luck to you!
Apparently, my ring arrived today! I don’t know if I can last until Christmas! Seriously, I’m not even sleeping very well at night& he’s noticing a change in my attitude :(when did I become this crazy lady!? Im trying to enjoy the holiday season & our fabulous life together as is until it happens, but the crazy part of my brain is making that very difficult. Breathe. Breathe. Breathe.

@JuniperSage: No not at all, I think wanting to see something solid that he has got your ring is completely justified, though let me tell you, I saw my e-ring when he put a deposit on it (not since), and it’s no easier, in fact it probably makes me more anxious as I can visualise it (and I’m slowly starting to forget what it looks like, it has been that long, haha)
I think this 2 months is the most anxious waiting period as there are so many holidays and occassions. Theres Christmas, NYE, then Valentines day not long after in Feb. I think it all just gets a bit too crazy with everything else on top as well!
