Hey bees, would this upset you? I’m kind of upset and I’m trying not to be so I need someone to bring me back to reality.
I posted previously about my SO and I not exactly being on the same page with ring styles. He likes more elaborate looking, cocktail-looking rings, while I’m not quite sure what I like. I know I don’t like 3 stones, solitaires or step cuts but other that that I’m clueless. My SO wanted to pick it out on top of it.
So last night we were at a party and I was talking to SO’s sister, who is a friend of mine. Her and I went to a jeweler last week to see different styles and she offered to go shopping with SO to pick out my ring.
You know the conversation isn’t going to be good when she starts out “I have to tell you something”.
She said she told her brother that she wanted to go shopping with him. He said thanks, but he already bought my ring.
Naturally when I heard that I was jumping out of my skin, but since I have no idea when he’ll give it to me, I was trying not to get too excited.
Then, the big mouth that I am asked if she saw the ring. That’s when things got funny. She said he sent her a picture, and it’s not something she would picture me picking out. She said he seemed so excited about it.
At that point, I was kind of upset that she told me about it at all, but I know it’s not her fault. I told her I don’t want to know any other details and I didn’t want to talk about it at all, so we dropped the subject.
Unfortunately, it’s now all I can think about!
I obviously cannot say something to SO, so I just have to patiently wait. She said the reason she told me is so I’m not too disappointed when he does propose.
How can I get this out of my mind? I know I’m rather emotional because Friday I found out I will be out of a job in 2 weeks, which was totally unexpected.
