Holy moly! I’m not a Whovian but I have friends who are and this is getting saved for when their respective SOs want to propose because it is freaking AWESOME!!

I’m going through a “meh” day since there could be a further delay in the SO’s proposal plans but I can’t really be too annoyed since it’s tied in with a free trip lol

How have you been?

@MissFireFlower:  Well I’m sure you will look beautiful regardless Smile That being said, I have to confess that I’m trying to lose weight for my friend’s wedding in March – who I’m going to be a bridesmaid for – since she’s insisting that we have to wear a Vietnamese ao dai… and for what I can see, it’s not the most flatting attire for my body shape lol so best of luck with your weight loss. Maybe we can be online support buddies?

And sucks about the Future Sister-In-Law drama! Can I ask what’s going on or would I be being too nosy?

Haha actually that’s the plan – his friends won an all-expenses paid trip to Las Vegas and the SO decided months ago to postpone proposing until we go to the US to make it all the more special – since our current finances mean that trips to the US will be very very rare. Otherwise, we would probably be engaged by now! But because of one of our friend’s issues with getting a US tourist visa, the trip may get postpone which means the proposal gets postponed. But like I said, I can’t really get annoyed because then I’d be such an ungrateful brat lol

@MissFireFlower:  Thats so awesome you came back to visit us. We have missed you.

I am blah…waiting sucks. You know…I wanna thrend Jack for a second and explain why i want the ring and wedding so bad. We already live together, that’s fine. It’s wonderful. But I am big into symbols and very new-agey.

I want the symbol of the ring from him. I know the roots of these symbols and I love the symbolism that he is choosing me publicly forever and ever.

I want the wedding because of one reason…I want to go through the ritual with him. I am big into ritual. And because of this I have surendered myself to the Ritual of the Surprise. A wedding traditionally happens in front of an altar and/or under an archway, you can also jump over a broom and when you come out on the other side you are changed. I have never wanted to go through that archway more then I do with him. The ritual is far more important to me then the carats or dress.

Sorry. This was my blah bad waiting day post.

@Sapphire-Dreamer:  HUGS. You are one of the biggest cheerleaders on these boards and you give so much support to everyone else… So you are entitled to a bad day and maybe even moping a little. 🙂

i have been moping a lot. I set a walk date and its approaching at lightening speed… Yet also the speed of a snail.

i understand and all your reasons… They make complete sense to me.

@MissFireFlower:  it was really sweet of you to come back! I have perused some other Boards and although people are nice,  there are so many topics, it’s not as tight of a group as this one. Plus, we are all dealing with bone major specific issue, so bond like crazy!!

I was interested to see your date is may… If we get engaged soon we will probably have the wedding in April or may… Not much time!!

@Waitingtoexhale:  *hugs* Thank you so much. That really means a lot! I have been reading your stuff too so it is great to know we are all in this together

I really feel that the waiting bees have really bonded with each other to a level that competes only with the TTC bees (not that it’s a competition at all)

@Sapphire-Dreamer:  *hugs* to you my dear. I can definitely emphatize with you because, like you, I’m into rituals as well and I want to go through it with the SO. And seriously, like Waitingtoexhale said, you shouldn’t feel the need to apologize for venting about a bad waiting day – you’re such a tremenduous asset and support in the waiting community and you’re one of the first to pick people up when they’re feeling down and we’re here to do that for you too Smile

 

@Waitingtoexhale:  Oh wow that is soon! How exciting! Can I ask why April or May or would that be being too nosy?
