Sorry about the shitty evening. And I understand the allure of WWF, my Darling Husband sometimes can’t tear himself away. I don’t agree with the school distrit asking him to certify to be a Spanish teacher though, that’s insane and them not paying??!! Lastly, I’m sure your engagement is coming. Keep your chin up and congrats on your raise!

I can totally relate! My SO was completely overworked and underpaid at his last job and now that he is job hunting it seems like he treats that like a (more than) full time job as well! He always says it’s because he wants to take care of me which is nice but sometimes that is just impossible to remember and I just want him to get off the effing computer and pay attention to me already!!!

Sounds like your SO is doing a great job making it up to you and hopefully you will get to celebrate your news soon! (congrats btw :))

It sounds like work is really stressful for him, and it’s actually really admirable that he wants to do such a good job for the school that hired him. I’d hate for you to think that his dedication to his profession has anything to do with his affection for you – the Spanish class has nothing to do with whether or not he wants to marry you. Congratulations on your promotion, too – focus on work and let your proposal be a surprise ๐Ÿ™‚

I can’t believe that class was 1300–OR that the school expected him to teach Spanish when he has NO cert for it and then didn’t pay for it. Why him? Could they not have selected someone else?? On top of that–he just finished his first year, I am sure it was stressful enough!

On your frustration: I’m sorry. It can be tough when the person we love doesn’t respond the way we would like–especially with great news like that (Congratulations, by the way). At least he realizes he came off as less than enthusiastic and is trying to make it up. So are you thinking the proposal is coming later than 8/8 now?? Because he was asking about it and stuff–maybe that is still the plan?

I’m sorry you had a shitty night as well, i had one of those with SO last night as well.. and waiting is waiting.. it drives us all nuts.. i would have been very pissed too if that was how my SO responded to me giving him such great news about my raise and upcoming new job position! and i could totally see that happening to me as well.. that was sweet that he actually made it up to you like that… my SO also does that kind of stuff too.. we should get it to little arguements more often! ๐Ÿ˜‰ i’d be cleaning up after him a lot less!

If it makes you feel any better… Darling Husband and I picked out my ring in about December, and he didn’t propose until MAY!  Twice I had to deal with the sales girl from the jeweler calling me to ask if we were still interested in the ring, or if we had gone elsewhere and wanted her to close our file.  Yeesh.

@ColoradoGirl:  okay, I understand now. Yeah–I would be a little (a lot) hurt if he had pushed it back b/c of the classes. At least he has his money back so maybe its not that far off? And about the family thing…yikes! is how I would feel too!! And I am sure it is even more painful getting congratulations for something you want more than anything, but can’t seem to get!! ahhh, frustrating. I will cross my fingers for you!! I really hope he gets it together soon–or at least by 8/8!!!!

@ColoradoGirl:  They don’t think “sometimes!?!” haha!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ohhhh men.. We’re just a much different species! My guy will do the dishes maybe once or twice a week then he gets all happy and says “look! I did the dishes!” like I’m supposed to praise him up and down for it ;p

Good luck sweetie! But I’m sure you’ll get your proposal very soon! I’d be in a happy waiting phase ! It sounds to me like you’ll def have a summer proposal! And I’m here for ya untill then! ๐Ÿ™‚ xoxo

Congratulations on your raise and your promotion!! 

I’m glad things still seem to be on track for 8/8, but I’m sorry you had to go through this trauma.  It’s not easy at all!

Hugs to you and have a good weekend!
