Sigh, I give in, I take the pact. It’s gonna be a rough 3 months. My 23 year old cousin just booked her venue and found her wedding dress, a friend from HS got engaged and I’m going to turn 29 on the 7th without a ring. But I vow to shut it up and be happy for the people who are engaged meanwhile I’ve been waiting for over a year, and he’s had the ring for 9 months now. AAARRRGGGGHHHH!

@annasaf83:  Wait till you hit 30! But I feel you, having the ring for over 9 months would drive me bonkers. Good luck, at least you know it’s coming!

@MariaW:  Yes and I know when as well(Valentine’s Day), but it doesn’t make the time go faster 🙁 And now he’s noticed a possible flaw in the ring so I’m a mess lol.

I told my SO he needs to figure stuff out soon. But he called me silly because I got upset over something he said, which I probably wouldn’t have if I wasn’t waiting. Gah!

On the bright side, he did yammer on over the weekend about what our married lives would be like, and talk about when we should get hitched and such. So he is making progress but gosh sometimes I just feel like it is sooooo slow.

I’m not counting this as a fail since I didn’t nag, and just pointed out why I was being sensitive to what he said and how I felt. More power to me for justifying failing the shut it up pact, haha! No more bringing it up at all now – even if he brings it up I’m just going to say something like “that’s nice” or “oh look a squirrel.” That second part might be weird if we’re in a shopping mall or something, but whatever!
