- Wedding: May 2014
My SO works for NY state and was sent down to NYC to help with the hurricane relief efforts last Wed. He was supposed to come home this Wed. but called me this morning and said he probably will have to stay until Friday.
I’m glad he’s helping out and the pictures he is sending me of the damage just breaks my heart for everyone affected. He is making a lot of money with overtime (and today, as a holiday).
We’ve discussed a timeline of about 6 months-1year to get engaged, mostly because of (his) finances and saving for a ring. All of this unexpected overtime $$ plus the upcoming holidays (not only Christmas but my birthday and our 2nd anniversary are in January) have got my waiting brain on overdrive, wondering if he may use some of the overtime $ to get a ring, if a proposal could be coming sooner rather than later, etc. Then I go to, if he doesn’t, then what’s the hold up if he does have the money now due to the overtime? I should note, he won’t actually get the money in his paycheck until mid-December.
I’ve been very good and shut it up, have not mentioned anything or hinted or brought up anything (even in the midst of my aunt getting married this past weekend, and 2 distant friends getting engaged (finding out on FB)).
I may just go absoloutely crazy this holiday season! Last year I knew nothing was coming because we weren’t quite there yet, but now that we’ve had “the talk” and know that it will be coming, I just don’t know how I will get through all of these holidays. How do you Bees do it?
