Ok ladies so I have been so very good at not saying a word since starting the Christmas Challenge. I’ve felt pretty good about it too. Because of it we’re enjoying each other and our time together. I have to say that silence is a virtue. I haven’t been this sane the entire “waiting” process. So I have to say that I’m loving this “stress free” feeling. Although because the holidays are approaching I’m getting antsy.
So there have been signs pointing to yes then other signs pointing to no that he has start saving, put the ring on layaway, or is in the process of purchasing the ring in full. Here are the signs:
I asked him what he wanted for Christmas. So he turned around and asked me the same thing but said other than “for me to put a ring on it”. (haha) My response to that was “That’s it. Honestly that’s all I want”. Because it’s true. I don’t want or really need anything else. Just to be his fiance and shortly after his wife.
He told me that he has $300 left to pay on a “bill” by Thanksgiving. He didn’t elaborate. Which he normally does. I would usually ask “what bill” but I didn’t. I know all his bills and none of them are “due” like that or in that amount of money.
He left his email up on the PC and I saw a message from his high school classmate who lives in another state. It’s a woman who he talks to periodically. She sent him an email that said “well is the ring at least on layaway”. His response was “I’m on it”.
He doesn’t make a lot of money and his funds are pretty much spent on the bills and expenses that he has to cover. So it would be hard for him to save the money that quickly.
I saw the business card for the lady along with a coupon from the ring store. This was given to him the last time we went ring shopping. The coupon was only good for another 2 weeks. So I’m not sure if he put the ring on layaway in time b4 the coupon expired or if they just let him use it and keep it. Or maybe he hasn’t even put the ring on layaway at all. Uggghhh!
It’s been 3 1/2 years. And I only have the rest of 2010 left in me to “wait”. I tried to make that perfectly clear in our last conversation before my committing to the Christmas Challenge. But I did so without pressure or giving him a “deadline/timeline” date because I want him to do it on his on. The timeline is more so for me and my sanity. He seemed to understand. So I just hope and pray it comes b4 the end of the year. Really on or b4 Christmas. I don’t thnk I can bear opening a gift that’s not an engagement ring.
Thanks for reading and allowing me to vent.
