So I’m fairly new here, and I love this board! It’s such a relief to hear from all the others here who are also waiting. I haven’t been reading long enough to know, so I hope this isn’t Too Much Information. But I had a moment today that I found ironically amusing…
I’ve been getting more and more excited and also moodier and moodier as the long countdown to the proposal gets (hopefully) shorter. (Labor Day weekend, possibly…?) Meanwhile, boyfriend and I were snuggling a bit today, and he was starting to make some… advances. 😉 I wasn’t really in the mood, and we talked a little about the differences in our respective drives (a much-discussed issue between us). He said that he hoped I’ll be in the mood for some sexytime soon. He seemed a little blue, much as I’ve probably seemed in my grouchier moments, and so I asked if it was really bothering him that I wanted to delay until I felt more in the mood. He said, “Not really… just waiting anxiously.”
Is it wrong that I really wanted to laugh? I could have said the exact same thing if the topic were engagement instead of sex. And if I hadn’t promised to try to ignore the elephant in the room and let him plan the proposal unharassed. 😉

LOL! That’s cute. I guess at least they know how it feels to wait sometimes 🙂

Haha! That exchange triggered a bit of an epiphany about the similarities between the stereotypical girls/engagement and boys/sex obsessions. (It’s a stereotype that he and I fit pretty well, actually…) It’s almost always on my mind, it’s something I want but can’t have unless he wants it too, and I’m very hesitant about bringing it up too often for fear that I’ll either nag him into reluctant submission or put him off it completely. There’s also (ring) porn! ;D
I almost *almost* tried to slyly point out that he knows a little about how I feel, but I refrained. He did ask that we please try to just “be us” and not let the issue come between us for what I hope are these last few weeks so that he doesn’t feel like he’s “throwing me a bone” when it happens. So I’m doing my best. But after it happens I might point out how we each know a bit about how the other feels about these tricksy issues.

That made me laugh 🙂 My bf and I had a similar discussion about tater tot casserole. Yes, he’s still a little kid and craves tater tot casserole.
Him: can we have tater tot casserole tonight?
Me: Ummm we have zero food in the fridge so we can either go grocery shopping or you’ll have to be patient and wait until we have some time.
Him: (in a fake cry voice) Why must you make me wait?
Me: Well we’re even I guess. (insert evil grin)
He got my drift and now he winks and tells me that “the casserole is on its way”. I’ll believe him when its on my finger.
Isn’t it funny how everyday things (whether its food or sex) bring up the engagement issue? 🙂 Good job on keeping the joke to yourself and not bugging him about it. I find that the closer it gets, the harder it is to keep my mouth shut. At least we can look at ring porn and rant a little on WB. I hope your ring comes soon!

@aberry: Awww, that’s so sweet! I hope your casserole is done soon (and mine, too)! 😉
And may I ask – what is tater tot casserole, and how do you make it? It sounds right up my alley!

Oh man, I should totally do that. My SO is always hungry and always impatiently awaiting his dinner, much like a little boy.
Tatertot hotdish (or casserole if you don’t live in Minnesota) is a delicious invention.
You need frozen tatertots, cream based condensed soup, ground hamburger, and onions.
Brown you hamburger. Mix with a cream based soup (with milk), a chopped onion, and half a bag of frozen tots. Top with frozen tots and bake until it’s golden and delicious. Serve with ketchup. (1lb beef, one can of soup for a small square cassarole pan.) Eat and enjoy!

Oooh, yum. I’ll have to try that. Maybe I’ll make engagement tatertot casserole instead of engagement chicken – boyfriend’s allergic to poultry!

Sh*t!!! I can’t eat dairy 🙁
I was thinking, if the engagement chicken didn’t work, maybe I can try your tatertot recipe!!!! Perhaps I can modify with soy cream…..
