Hey ladies! I’m sure lots of you have seen my many posts about waiting. Truth be told, it’s a lot harder than it seems… I’m sure most of you can agree!
A little background: My SO has had the ring for 13 weeks. We’ve gone to Mexico, on beautiful hikes, to Zion, camping – you name it. All of which would be “perfect” opportunties. I think he’s brought it to these events and things never played out perfectly… Anyways, last night we were talking about my birthday (Which is Dec 16) and how this watch I want, he will get it for me early, BUT “If I give you your birthday present early, that’s fine, but you will wait until Christmas Day for your gift”.
Side note: I’m horribly impatient, I ask for hints on gifts & I always give them early.
I say “What?? We are doing Christmas Gifts? (sometimes we exchange, sometimes we don’t – we always decide together) When did we decided this (laughing)?”
He says “I’m not going to not get you a gift”
Why this seems weird to me:
-We decide on Christmas gifts (yes or no) together
-He worded it like he HAD the gift (i.e ring)
-He usually is clueless when it comes to gifts & asks for input
-He never has a gift planned out this early (based on past years)
So, now I’m going to sound a little ungrateful (trust me, I’m trying to change my perspective)… We are now 13 weeks into this and I’m sooooooo impatient. I keep thinking “maybe this weekend??” and I don’t know if I will “survive” until Christmas. I don’t think I have a choice though…
I need help/support/ANYTHING to keep me sane. I need to figure out how to switch my mentality from “maybe this weekend!” to “Maybe by the end of the year!” but I don’t know how to do that… I feel like my patience has already run out! lol I know that I’m in a better position than lots of waiting bees (knowing he has the ring) BUT it’s also a curse knowing he has the ring. I’m also bummed that I (think) know when he’s going to ask. I’m sure I’ll still be estactic/surprised but damn me for peeking at the ring. Oh well, can’t undo that LOL
Thanks for letting me ramble…
