So we had an awesome weekend and a great week. Granted he’s had to work late most of the week, but it’s still been really good. It sucks he has to work 12 hours everyday this week but according to him, he wants as much overtime right now to pay for my “stupid” ring. He was joking about the stupid part. Little brat! All week long he’s brought up wedding stuff here and there, so I get excited. I am really unsure about even thinking about wedding stuff since he hasn’t even proposed yet. Maybe it’s bad luck. I don’t know. Am I stupid to start thinking about stuff like that? I found a really good photographer and when I told him about who I found and how much he was he was fine with it. I even told him that we could use the photographer that he wanted but he said to me, use whoever you want honey. My question is this… We are trading in my first ring he gave me for the e-ring. I put in on his dresser because it has been sliding around on my finger and I told him I wanted to go get it resized. He told me that there was no point in getting it resized if he’s going to buy me a e-ring. I don’t like not having my ring though. It takes 2 weeks to size it, so do I just take it off the dresser and size it? His plan was to buy the e-ring and then take the other to our jeweler and trade it so I wouldn’t be without a ring. The jeweler is fine with that. Do you think that if he buys it before it goes up in price on October 3rd that he will make me wait till March? I don’t kno wif the jeweler would be ok with not getting the trade in ring till then. I know I am rambling and all over the place with this post. Sorry, I have been fighting a bad sore throat and major migraine so I think I am delirious. Plus it doesn’t help to have wedding brain. Is there a cure?

What’s cowbell mean? I think my brain fell out of my head or it’s on strike.

You NEED more cowbell! (one of my fave’s too).
Just relax. Do not fear. Resize the other ring and voila you have your right hand ring.
The e ring will happen when it happens. Just get over the cold and start feeling better 🙂

I would just forget about these “deadlines” (Oct 3, March, etc.) It will happen when it happens. Just go about your days as normal and things will fall into place. The engagement isn’t going to be a surprise…or very much fun, if you’re sweating it all the time.

I am not trying to be harsh just honest, but you are looking for a different answer everyday but yet it is always the same. You need to relax and not put so much into the proposal and just LET things happen! A ring is a ring, a material object. It does not take the place of a loving relationship or a marriage. It is a symbol. Just enjoy your relationship and take it one day at a time. Honestly, thats how we live, my Darling Husband and I. We do not stress about deadlines, due dates etc. We are so busy and hardly get to see each other that we cherish every moment that we get, even if its 5 minutes a day only with each other. I am afraid if you constantly worry about this you are going to miss out on so much and the whole fun phase of getting engaged etc. I am rooting for you and I know its going to happen, but just let it happen. Its out of your hands. Just have some faith in your man and let life happen, you cannot control it. I honestly cannot give anymore advice and I really do not know what anyone can say differently to you. Good luck and I will be watching for when it happens!

Haha…I just looked up and watched the video for “More Cowbell”.
I think MissGreen’s advice sounds just perfect. I am waiting for my ring and I know he has it. And at first I was a lil mad…but I’m sure eventually it’ll happen and it’ll be great. But yeah…the October-March is a long time. Just keep yourself occupied.

MissGreens advise is exactly what I was thinking. Maybe you should start a new hobby or do a month full of creative recipes that you have never tried that way your mind will be on something else
