Talk about it on here 😛

Or to anyone else, really. I know it’s really, really hard but whenever I want to talk about that sort of thing I try to talk to my best friend or post on the Bee – it’s a nice little outlet without making my OH feel crazy pressured, saying that we do talk about it (both engagement and wedding stuff) but only a little.

When I have a bad waiting day I do something I enjoy, like go running (or if it’s a REALLY bed day sit still and eat alot…)

I hope this helps!

I think you need a distraction from your distraction!  My husband was the same way, the more you talk about it, the more he will push it back.  Guys are like that sometimes, they want to think they completely suprise you even if they don’t

@squeak: I am the same way.  I work and I am in school so anytime I can get on the weddingbee to scour wedding ideas (which causes me to passively mention an impending engagement to SO) probably is not working to my advantage.  My advice is to use the waiting board to vent your joys and frusterations, and since you are in school focus on that as well.  Maybe take up a new (non-stressful!) hobby?  Good luck on waiting and please keep us all updated.  We all LOVE a fabulous proposal story (with pics!)

@kat2014: & @Hbomb84: I agree with both of you. the OP should definetly find some hobbies that are just for her, that are fun, and that keep her busy!

I’ve been taking photo’s of everything, and creating hallowe’en and Autumn stuff lately. Those things have kept my mind off of a proposal… Which could be any day now!

@squeak: Hehe well besides scouring the wedding bee… 

I am attempting crocheting (I can’t focus well enough for it though Frown)

I have been working at the Couch to 5k program!  Planning on running a for real 5k when I’m done 🙂 

I try to read (but it usually ends up being A&P books, since I am going to school for Rad Tech)

I was doing the whole job searching thing, too.  It’s a wonderful distraction because you realize that it’s beneficial to your future together to work, but it fairly stressful.

Whenever I feel the need to talk about marriage or find myself in the “marriage mood” I come on TWB and discuss either the frustrations I am feeling currently concerning waiting, or I respond to other bees’ threads (like this one!)  It reminds you that you’re not the only one feeling crazy!  Also, I like to watch wedding shows, like Four Weddings, Bridezilla, Say Yes to the Dress, etc.  I never really knew too entirely much about weddings (or the price of them) until I started watching these shows.  They give you an idea of what you’d like at your wedding, as well.

As for hobbies, I clean, shop around for things I need in the house like candles, new rugs, bed spreads, etc.  I’ve been looking through recipes on FoodNetwork.com to add to my collection to try out later on, exercising, playing video games, drawing and painting.  Just do things you’ve been wanting to do: pick up that bakery class, go try yoga, learn how to ride a horse.  Take this time to spoil yourself!
