I pop up mentally like one of those meerkats every time he says something, and I KNOW the proposal can’t happen until after April 2013 at the earliest. We’ve discussed it, we know we’re getting engaged, I should be happy knowing he wants to commit to me, etc.

Still, I’m wild anytime he says something.

Last weekend he was having me explain the 4 C’s of diamonds. Out of nowhere. I was trying to casually explain without being like DEAR SWEET JESUS HERE ARE ALL THE RINGS I LIKE! I was so proud of myself for playing it cool. It took massive effort and I think I burst a blood vessel from holding my face so impassively. I talked diamonds for 30 minutes without mentioning engagement or a ring for me, it was epic. It was like talking about cheese or something.

And then I started getting all “oh man what if he is thinking of doing it on our anniversary in november” which is ridiculous.

Anyhow, it’s all waiting brain and I try to tell myself not to get wound up, but OH MAN I do anyway.

I have no tips other than to tell yourself that there is no way it is happening yet. That’s all I do.

@CaroBee:  You are hilarious – I know the meerkat feeling, haha! And the bursting blood vessel feeling too!
