Hello all, I’m still housesitting, and starting to get really homesick. With all the stress of SO’s job (and the uncertainty of it), we’re both miserable. We decided to stay in tonight and take full advantage of the house I’m watching… We took a little drive over to the supermarket and picked up some groceries and he cooked for me! The first time since we met that he’s actually cooked the whole meal! (I’ve gotta say I was a little nervous cause I know his Mom doesn’t let him near the stove at home, so I wasn’t sure he’d have any recipes other than toast in his repertoire!) He did a great job making ‘Gravy’ from scratch (He’s Italian, and I sadly am not, the only tomato sauce I use comes in a jar lol), a little bit off on the proportions (he bought 2lbs of sausage, 2.5lbs of ground beef, plus he wanted to get 2 boxes of pasta! It was just us! lol)
So after dinner was over we were cuddling on the couch and talking, I reached over for his phone (his old phone died and he used his upgrade to buy the iPhone4 so I like to toy around with it) he stopped me. I asked him what was up and he said nothing, and I said well why can’t I see your phone? he admitted that there was something on there that I couldn’t see. I asked if it was work related and he said no. I asked if it was family related, he said no. I asked him what it was about and he said that “All will be revealed when it is meant to be revealed” I’m not quite sure what that means but it sounds like I will find out eventually lol so it shouldn’t be bad news… lol Also while we were going to the Supermarket and even when we were cooking and kissing (a wonderful combination!) he was toying with my left hand, and he doesn’t usually. He usually just holds my hand or brushes my hair out of my face, but he was rubbing my fingers lol I didn’t mind, but now looking back I wonder if it has anything to do with a ring?
It’s probably just wishful thinking because he fears that he may be fired from his job soon (since many people have been fired or have quit in recent months, including his boss who was his ally who was fired on Thursday)and he has said that we’re not financially ready to be engaged yet (I’m only working part time) I dunno, what do you girls think?

I don’t think you necessarily need to be “financially ready” to be engaged…because you can be engaged for a long time! But of course it is good to be ready and helps. So I don’t know if he would still be set on that. You might be reading into things because you want this so much (I know I was very anxious too) but it does sound awfully suspicious of him! 🙂

@ThePrincessMaggie: Well I have said that to SO, but he wants a short engagement, so he is right in thinking financially since the Engagement Ring leads to the Wedding (and we have talked about getting married Sept 14th 2012). So I’m awfully confused lol but something is brewing! lol

To be honest in times of uncertainty (like pending job loss etc) it can bring people closer together, seize the day and all that.
I am also a firm advocate of that you don’t need money to become engaged, you don’t even need a ring, just the agreement that you wish to plan your wedding together!
A ring could be purchased later once the finances are stable.
Best wishes x

@spaneshal: Oh I definitely agree, my parents got married without an engagement ring and they’ve been happily married for 28 years. But right now we both can’t afford to move out of our parents’ homes. If I were to find a full time job we would be able to scrape by, but I’m currently part time out of my field and freelancing whenever the phone rings lol. SO wants to be financially set before planning our marriage (whether a big affair or going to the courthouse)
