I’m kind of excited to write this post, and when I say ‘kind of’, it’s because I don’t want to get my hopes up. Anyway, last night J had a guy come and look at the Jeep. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that the guy buys it! That conversation led to another… Weddings. I asked J if a wedding next year was possible, and he said: “Ya, I think that would be very possible!” We both agreed that a wedding between June and October would bet a great time to get married. I told J that although an October wedding would be nice (because I LOVE Halloween… more than Christmas!), the weather would be risky. He agreed with me, stating that my cousins outdoor wedding on Thanksgiving weekend was sheer luck that the weather was nice. I then went on to say that early June would be nice, but we’ve been having a lot of rain lately. J said: “That’s true, but look at how weird the weather has been lately. It could be completely different by then.” I asked how long it would take him to get his debt down to a comfortable amount (I.e.: he can afford a ring), and he said in a couple of months. If he sells the jeep, it would be even sooner.
I’m sure there was more talked about, but honestly, I can’t remember. I’m just in awe that the conversation actually happened. Don’t wanna get my hopes up though… We’ll see what happens in the coming months.

I don’t want to be a buzzkill, but I just want to remind you to stay grounded. Everyone who has read even a handful of your posts knows that J has given you timelines and promises before, only to break them.
I really hope for your sake the two of you have turned corner, but if I were you I wouldn’t believe it until I saw it. Good luck!

@Sunshining: ? That’s why I said that I wasn’t getting my hopes up and we’ll see what happens in the coming months…

@GwenvonD: I know, but we often say that after we’re already too excited to follow through with it. The fact that you posted about it shows that you are already very excited, which is fine. I was just trying to give a little dose of reality, but I see that you’re offended by it so I won’t comment any further.

Honestly, timelines are a lot of pressure for both the guy and the girl. Just enjoy the excitement of waiting and don’t worry about when so much as long as it will happen. It seems like both of you are pointed that direction.
I have to point out though, how come it seems like you can’t bring up wedding talk or anything? Why is it a “big deal” when he brings it up? If you are both want marriage you should be able to talk about it comfortably. It seems like walking on eggshells.

@Sunshining: No worries 🙂
@adage: It’s no big deal for him to bring it up, but it is for me. I’ve been through a lot in my past and sometimes it’s difficult. He’s aware of this and is supportive though. Usually he’s the one bringing up the subject, lol.
