Just go into the holidays expecting nothing, and be happily surprised if something does. That’s the only advice I can give.

@MsYankee:  I’m home alone as well (my SO also works away) and am mere days away from a proposal (according to hints he’s been dropping, friends’ comments and my own waiting bee gut instinct), so I can completely understand being driven bonkers while waiting. The best advice I can give you is keep yourself busy. Find a hobby and immerse yourself in it. Catch up with friends, family. Get into exercise. Anything to keep your mind focused on things other than your naked ring finger. If you’ve had the talk, then keeping it shut is the best thing you can do. And vent to your fellow bees, of course. That always helps.

My boyfriend is working in ny too to help restore power!  He’s been there for over a week already, sleeping in his truck because of the whole no hotels situation, and he’s saying that he’ll  get to come home this week!  I hope that he actually gets to come home soon…I miss him so much! He’s also making tons of extra money from overtime, but he’s decided that he’ll be purchasing a new tv and lasik eye surgery…doesn’t sound like a ring is in my near future.  Sigh.   

Fingers crossed that your boyfriend has more exciting plans for his extra money!
