- Wedding: November 2017
I may or may not have gone a little crazy when I was waiting (DH took me ring shopping after we’d been living together a year, but it was almost another year and a half before he had the ring and proposed). Certainly, getting engaged and then married was some kind of vindication. But tonight gave me a whole new feeling of that lol.
DH came home from work…he was upset because after being told for ~4 years now that he is the top performer on his team and that he would be promoted (last year he was even told it would happen by May of 2017), today he was told it wasn’t going to happen. Not because he doesn’t deserve it or his boss (or previous boss) or boss’s boss didn’t want to promote him or go to bat for him, but it was denied. Anyways, poor guy. But what he said after he told me about the conversation floored me: “So this is what it was like when Libellules was waiting for me to propose and I was telling her it would happen ‘at some point.'”
I was shocked his mind went there but it totally had us both laughing. Figured I’d share, because I knew you all would understand lol.
