@MrsGolden2Bee:  I’m doing it! It’s been going great so far. I hung out with some girlfriends last Sunday, and am having another girls night this Saturday. The gym has been slipping because of craziness at work, but I’m trying to get back on the bandwagon, so to speak.

Also, I made a list of goals to keep me occupied in the meantime. SO has been pretty responsive to my newfound independence, and I fully intend on keeping it up.

Here’s the list:

  • Lose 15 lbs (down to 115)
  • Save money
  • Actually fold our laundry after I wash it
  • More girls nights
  • Stop biting my nails (for when that ring actually shows up!)
  • Get more responsibility at work (already happening)
  • Start painting again
  • Start writing again (about non work-related things)
  • Run a 10k
  • Read 1 book a month (this might not seem like a lot, but I’m a proposal writer for the government and read/write ALL DAY LONG).

Keep to the plan ladies! Best of luck 🙂

I’m trying bees, I really am. I was doing so well and yesterday and today has been so bad. So so bad. I can’t even look at him right now or I will burst into tears. There is no rational reason for me feeling this way. I hate hormones.

@MrsGolden2Bee: That’s what I absolutely hate about this whole waiting business. WE plan our lives together in every other way, why don’t I get a say in this matter?

Lately my waiting has turned rather depressive- what if he decides I’m not worth it? Obviously I’m not, as he hasn’t decided that I am yet. Blah blah… 

Eww, just saying that makes me eeked out a little. This is the first month I am purposefully instigating Mr. Bee’s plan into my thoughts. Already set to do a workout class tonight and focus on my school and job. And have made heaps of plans with friends. 

@readynwaiting- look at you! What a plan, I might steal some!

But then again, has anybody heard positive reviews on the Engagement Chicken? Because I have contemplated this at least five times today.

Still on the plan and going strong! I don’t bring up engagement anymore, and rarely think about it anymore. I just don’t care much anymore, and it’s actually pretty great.  I’ve been eating healthier and hitting the gym, reading more, keeping my nails and skin taken care of more and hanging out with my girlfriends more.  I have plenty of stuff to keep me busy right now and for that I’m happy.

Our 4-year anniversary is in 2 weeks, and there’s been some activity lately that makes me think something might be happening soon, but ofcourse I mostly expect there to not really be anything to it, or if there is something to it something with happen to derail SO’s plans (something will break at the house, we’ll get a big unexpected bill, one of our cars will explode, etc) It always happens that way, just like SO finding out he wasn’t getting any money back on his taxes last month.  It’s always something, it has been for the past 3 years.

SO has asked my dad for his blessing as of a few weekends ago which is exciting on one hand, but on the other I feel bad because I have a feeling now my parents are going to be waiting along with me for a while 🙁

Its so good to know there are other girls struggling along with me!

@readynwaiting58:  I freaking love that on your list you have to fold the laundry right away.  I am SOO bad with that too!!

Here’s my list:

1.  Exercise 5 times a week

2. Lose 15-20 lbs over the next year

3. Request time with my friends more often (which i have so far!)

4.  Request alone time.  If i need to go have a coffee by myself i shouldn’t feel so selfish

5. Start reading more before bed

6.  Continue training with the puppy.  I want him to listen 100% soon!

7. Save money for the wedding

8.  Continue finishing the house. (decorating and renovation)

@Rush1986:  Love your list 


Here’s my list:


– Get back into running 5 times a week.

– Lose 15-20 pounds

– Eat healthier

– Get our puppy trained more before we move into the new apartment( no backyard, ah!)

– Continue looking/ hopefully find a better paying job

– More time with my friends.

– Save more money


So far I’m doing good not telling my SO that I want to get married. But we have an engagement party this weekend. Ugh
