I did great this week! Didn’t bring it up at all, but did have a lot if responding to do because he brought it up a bunch of times! I guess I technically get a deduction for watching more than one wedding show, but he wasn’t around and I was sick. Good enough excuse, I hope!

How did everyone else do?

@Booknerd:  Good job! You should be proud of yourself.

I had a great waiting week and kept up the SIUP, because I focused a lot on improving myself. I finally submitted documents for a certification (CPA) that I’ve been putting off since… 2011, and I went to IMATS, which is this make-up trade show held all weekend. The SO went to his hometown without me, and we spent a night apart. When there, he saw his friends, and all his friends were asking where I was. He said I was “at an event with a friend.” It sounds crazy, but all his friends had their wives with them, and I felt kind of empowered that I was maintaining my sense of independence by going to this event where I could focus on what I love (make-up) instead of being the “gf” in the group tagging along. I’m hoping you Bees can understand that feeling as it’s so important to keep some form of independence in a relationship. Even though he was only gone one night, it felt like a few days and we were happy to be reunited after our busy weekends.

Oh, and I also worked out a little bit and got lots of make-up goodies at IMATS to (literally) put my best face forward. Kiss

I did great all week but then failed yesterday. We sort of casually ended up discussing rings. He mentioned that he finds it frustrating that pave settings are H-I color and “wouldn’t match” a colorless diamond. I could care less about specs to be honest, but I’m happy he’s at least browsing on his own!!

I’m going to try shut it up agian next week. I’m feeling overall more at peace with waiting than I felt last month. I hope I can go a few more months without getting sad about waiting again.

@MrsNewDay:  A makeup convention sounds so fun! I know what you mean about feeling empowered. I get to travel for work sometimes and I love being independent & knowing that he misses me lol.

Oh man… it’s like BFF & SO are conspiring to make me break the pact this week! SO asked why BFF had posted “Have you figured out how to keep your raging emotions in check yet?” on my facebook wall. I told him it was in reference to me CRYING while we were shopping for lace for her wedding dress because it was so beautiful and she thought I was insane and said I needed to get a hold of it before the wedding lest I make her burst into tears. SO laughed at me and asked if I thought I could get through the ceremony without crying. I told him I doubted it because I love her so much and I’m so happy for her and I really never thought it would happen for her and then ….. I STARTED TO CRY!


So then SO says “Did you think it would happen to you?”

UGH. I so wanted to say “Well it hasn’t yet!” 😛 Luckily, we were in bed and spooning so I was faced away from him and he didn’t see the face I made. Instead I took a second and just said I had begun to lose hope but it was my fault for dating assholes and then we snuggled. Aren’t I a good girlfriend? Isn’t he so effing lucky? SHOULDN’T HE BUY ME A FREAKING RING?!?!

Then I researched DOCs today. 😛 Poor dude is gonna hand me a ring and the first call I make is going to be to the vendors.
