Going through the ring-er

So, I’ve been digesting the conversation that CP and I had on the beach last week. (Getting hellacious sunburns in the process, despite application of sunscreen. Which is now peeling and itchy.)  However, the conversation was worth the sunburn. 
We had been out and played in the water, talked about small things when I decided to bring the subject up. 
I not so subtly segued into the subject.  CP was a little confused at first, but he caught on quickly and said what might possibly be my least favorite word in the whole english language: Soon.  I reminded him that he has used that particular word a few too many times.  Then he uttered the phrase that is a close #2 to soon: I know. 
However, the conversation continued on from there and CP told me he had been looking into jobs here for him, and jobs there for me.  I reminded him that I would go to PBG, but that I do not want to live there for the rest of our lives.  I’d like to live close to my family.  My parents are not moving.  Ever.  I’m not saying we have to live here exactly.  Or even forever.  Somewhere close by would be fine.  There are advantages to living here- esp. once we have children.  My mom would keep the children if I decided to go back to work, full or part time.  If we didn’t live here, I might definitely have to work full time. 
CP thinks that we might be better off to live in PBG and buy a house there because we’d make more money on resale of a house there. I’m not so sure about that. 
We also talked about his job and mine.  He’s up for his annual review at the beginning of July and will then get his annual raise, so at this point it would be silly to take a job until then. I’m contractually obligated to the hospital until February.    He only signed a 9 month lease, so he’d be free of that next April.  I told him I’d like to have a late Spring/early Summer wedding, but that I needed time to plan, so he can’t be dragging his feet. 
I reminded him that he promised me last June that he’d be ready this June.  And he smiled and said that I promised I’d stay in B’ton until this June.  I told him that he could have stopped me.  He said he thought I’ve been happier here.  Which is true to a certain extent-  I would be happiest if we were together. 
So now I’m still trying to be patient, but after our conversation, I’m feeling as though something will happen imminently. I’m not sure if that’s worse or better.  🙂 



  1. Soon! I love that word.. and I think it sounds pretty promising. 🙂 Now just relax and let him keep planning the most romantic proposal in the history of the world.

    (Jase has pretty much informed me that it’ll be happening while we’re overseas together, so sadly it’s a long, long way away. Gah!)

  2. Men only drag their feet when they are cornered. He seems to have put up quite a few excuses for all the things you pointed out. I would start coming upwith a new plan just in case “soon” means NEVER.

  3. Have you read “He’s just not into you?” I haven’t, but my philosophy in dating was – “If you don’t know you want to marry me after 12 months of dating, then you don’t want to marry me.” I don’t know if it is a good philosophy or not, but my current husband proposed after six months and we are very happily married now.

    I wish you the best.

  4. […] with number of views, etc.  While I appreciate all the readers, I found that the comments on my last post seem to reflect some of the people in my world outside of blogging.  I suppose it happens to every […]
