Haven’t blogged in a VERY long time now. I’m alive. Adjusting to this married way of life. I find myself daydreaming several times a day about my new husband and what our life will look like together a year from now and 5 years from now and 20 years from now. It’s a nice feeling. I’m not saying this marriage stuff is easy. It’s not. At all. However, I’m saying it’s worth the effort.
We’re still finding our grooves. Addis is still job hunting. I’m still signing my old name to most everything (must work on this!). We’re co-cooking, co-cleaning, co-mingling laundry. We’re practicing driving on the right side of the road. I’m still fumbling my way through grad school, and even applied for two new jobs in the last couple weeks. I wasn’t really looking, but hey, what the heck?
Our house is coming together in a way that works for us, even though my husband is OCD about things I could’ve never imagined. Haha. We both have a little of that in us though, so I guess we just have to shake our heads and laugh and allow the other one to carry on.
We have so much stuff planned already for the coming months all the way into November, which will be our first real vacation together as a married couple. We’re patiently awaiting plans for our friends to visit from the UK in February of next year. Seems we may get quite the crowd. Fingers crossed! Our newest niece will arrive in 5 weeks time. And in less than one week, I get to take Addis to see Josh Ritter for the first time.
The point is things are happy. Things are chill and falling right into place. Send happy job fairies our way, and maybe a new old car, and we’ll call it good.
