- Wedding: March 2014
Right now my biggest problem is my family. I hate disappointing my family but at the same time I’m just not sure I can take being at school anymore! I got an email from my advisor on Monday saying I would have to retake basic chemistry either this summer or next fall, so instead of doing that, I decided to switch majors and check out the community college in my hometown (this is after a year at university). Well, that was all well and good until I told my mom that I wanted to stay with my Fiance because he lives closer to the campus so I wouldn’t be spending $15/week for buses out there. That’s when shit hit the fan.
Along with that, my grandma is being suspiciously nice about the whole engagement-at-18 thing. She’s taking my Fiance and I out to lunch on Friday and it just makes me nervous. :/
Plus I told my mom something I shouldn’t have about my Fiance so now she’s on my case about that. I guess my whole family dynamic is effed up at this point.
Im sick to death of arguing about when hes going to propose and him saying he wont do it because im asking or because i want to. I ask if HE wants to he says yes i say why does it matter if i want it too? surely that should make him eager to do it because he knows ill say yes! I feel like im walking on eggshells atm, i love watching dont tell the bride and one born every minute but he sighs and leaves the room so im not watching them any more, i dont bring up marriage i dont talk about anything i want to becase it makes him annoyed at me. Im sick to death of this and if he doesnt pull his finger out soon i will be taking my son and leaving him. I should not and will not put up with somebody who treats me like an inconvenience!!
that sure felt good to write down and i know hes a good man and he does want the same as me but my god he gets on my nerves when he wont even discuss things and it makes me nervous to talk about it with him.
Men like to plan these things and spring it on us when we least expect it. Think about it, if you were plotting a surprise party for your mom and she kept asking you about details, when it was, etc. you’d get upset and probably not want to go through with it wither, right? But if she didn’t say a word, even if she suspected, and it all went off to plan without a hitch, you’d feel pretty awesome that you did something for someone you love so much.
Trust me, I was unbelievably frustrated, then once I backed off (for the most part) it happened and I was 100% caught off guard. *hugs*
My SO called the guy back and he said he could make something similar but because the page is almost a year old in order to stay in the same price range the center stone will have to be smaller or my SO will just have to pay more.
I don’t want to sound materialistic, but I view an engagement ring as a reflection of the person who put the ring on your finger. . . and I’m kind of hoping SO pays a little more. . . .
Okay. You really don’t have to keep replying to me if you don’t want to. I’m jealous you got to use an heirloom stone. I think the significance of that would totally make up for any of the other “surface” requirements most women think about when buying a stone, like carat size. And congratulations 🙂
Um LOL and sorry to the OP for a total thread jack …
I am agonizing over whether to go to a friend’s wedding or not. She’s having 50ish guests travel halfway across the country, and she is starting to get a bit bridezilla-y about the whole thing. 🙁 Plus, I only get a week of vacation every year, and I feel like we haven’t had a very solid friendship in a few years… Also, I posted a long, whiny thread about it and no one seems to want to comment.
Also, I feel like I have been waiting forever! And I’ve only “officially” (however official you can make waiting) been waiting for 6 months. Meh.
So imagine me standing outside in a large open space with my arms outstretched and screaming upwards into the sky…
I hate you, Diet!!! I’m starving and grumpy and want to eat all the breads!!! I know it’s better for me in the long run, and this is a necessary adjustment period. I KNOW THIS. However, it doesn’t stop me from hating you and wishing that you were a real person so that I could yell this in your face instead of into the universe!
Thank you for listening. (ETA better spacing. Because I also hate you, WB Paragraph Glitch. Oh, I hate the glitch, not the people working on it. That’s separate.)
I bought a beautiful blouse at Kohl’s yesterday. Now I always examine items before I purchase them. So I go & look at it now to take it out for later, and there’s a mark by the collar! Grr! I hate returning things!
Soooooo, my rant today is kinda pointless but here goes.
I am surrounded by three men at work (as in my cube is in the corner of a four cube square) and they make it a point to always talk about stupid things i dont care about. And then, when they’re done they decide to make fun of me – in a non harrassing matter but because I am usually (some days) very friendly they think i’m a good sport ALL THE FREAKING time. I just want them all to stfu and understand that just because i say certain words wrong sometimes ( english is my third language!) does not give you the right to make fun of me for like 10 minutes straight.
And my rant of the day is people who come on here and ask “is my 3 ct ring too small?” I don’t care what size your finger is or what part of the country you’re from. 3 ct is not small and if you think it is, you really REALLY need to go work in a soup kitchen or homeless shelter to regain a modicum of perspective.
