Aww, good luck! I hope you’re dealing with it better than I am. I’m constantly making him bring me back to my apartment to get things or stealing his clothes. (Even though he says it drives him crazy… I think he secretly likes that last part.)

@crebre: I like the idea of a short engagement… but I could never do it! I’m way too particular… and I love crafting so I have a lot of DIY plans that I want plenty of time to reconsider when I realize I’m not as crafty as I think. 🙂
Add to that school and a job… and I want as much time as I can get.

You’re not being rediculous at all!! I totally feel you on the waiting part. Hang in there girlie. There is a light at the end of the tunnel!

LOL Dreamer we finally moved into the same apartment complex. In fact, we were supposed to live literally five feet from each other’s front doors, but management screwed up. But we’re making do..
on cold nights it’s better to have a snuggle buddy than to not have anyone around at all… even if being by myself means no blanket hogging from him. So I understand!!! You seem to be pretty chipper about it, I do recommend the journal very much. I got rid of mine after about two or three weeks of being engaged… and I just kind of laughed at how much drama i put myself through. Regardless of whether there’s a ring or not, you’re going to be spending the rest of your life with him, so just remember that!!!

How old is his sister? If she’s older than you, that could be why her timeline is different.
His plan for you guys is smart, by the way. Just because you think it is a waste to finish your degree because you’ll be staying home anyway, it’s not. I was in the same place as you two years ago, and I didn’t finish my degree for the same reasons. Well guess what? I decided about 6 months ago that I really wanted to become a children’s librarian (a totally great job to have with kids, btw) and now I have to get into grad school. I had to go back and finish my undergrad 2 years later. I’m kicking myself for dropping out and slacking off, don’t do the same thing!

His sister is 23. And she’s the one who’ll probably give up school for marriage. I’m still going to finish my undergrad work… married or not. I think it’s a waste of time to wait on marriage, since we’ll be relying on his income anyway. I have money put away for school, so he wouldn’t have to pay for that.
I’m just tired of feeling like a nomad.
