What''s Different And What's The Same

     With a three month break between posts I went from a mildly depressed individual looking into getting her own apartment and getting three cats to a married woman, so obviously, a lot has happened in those three months. There have been a lot of big changes, most of them for Adam.

     In one month he got hired as a Firefighter, moved into a new apartment and got married. Those are kind of big things and I think his head is still reeling from the change.

     We have been together for about two years (even the times we weren't together we wished we were) and I feel like I know this guy pretty well. Now that we are married I don't think I've learned anything I didn't know about him. Even though life has been flipped upside down, it's a nice change.

Things that are different:

  • I used to not put as much effort into my appearance when I knew I wasn't going to see Adam that day, but now I try a little harder so he doesn't get scared off.
  • Cooking for two. It's a bit harder than I thought, especially since he eats about 3x as much as I do. We are developing a taste for Macaroni and Spam. Thankfully his mother likes to have us over for Sunday dinner and usually sends us home with leftovers. 
  • I now have someone who is my default go-to for social events (even though he kind of was before,  but now he has a harder time getting out of it).
  • I no longer have to kill bugs myself, unless Adam is at work or the perpetrator is moving fast to a hiding place.
  • For a while, sleeping was weird because I would frequently wake up in the middle of the night and be startled by the fact that there was a person in my bed. Also, he snores sometimes, but I got used to that pretty fast.
Things that are the same:

  • I still have the same job although now it's a little harder to leave for work when I know my best friend will be home all day.
  • My longing for a cat is still burning strong, despite the fact that Adam is allergic and the chances of me getting one are slim to none.
  • We still watch a ton of movies/shows together. That is probably one of our favorite things to do (and it's free). We are currently watching The Office together and finding any excuse to have a "movie night".
  • I'm actually having a hard time coming up with anything else. I had a ton of ideas this morning as I was going over this in my head. Sorry.
