It is so weird to think of how the little things in life have changed in the past few weeks for my husband and I. We still have the same jobs and responsibilities, yes things seem completely different. Here are some of things that I have noticed changing in out life, routine, and thinking:
1. Bills and Mail
Neither of us are use to having to let someone else about mail that we get or bills that come in! It seems so simple, but it is hard to get use to. I keep opening wedding presents or cards from people and forget to tell Dom till he wonders where the card came from (I also didn't think that he might want to open wedding presents as well!). Or, the other day I got the cable bill and didn't think that my husband might want to know how much it was and that it got paid. It will take us a while to get into a routine of sharing even the most mundane information with each other.
2. Sleeping Arangements
Between the two if us finding a way to be comfortable in bed together and the dog and cat trying to find an empty spot as well, Macy and I are having a hard time adjusting. Really I should blame this whole one on the dog! Macy is use to spooning my back all night and that isn't flying with Dom. The other day I woke up and found Dom on the couch because Macy "kicked him out of the bed". Maybe it is time for the dog to find a new spot...
3. Meal Time
I guess this would be my favorite change from single to married life. I had been in the habit of cooking dinner for Dom for about a year now (spoilt baby), but before, we would argue about whose house to eat at, or he would forget his lunch and have to drive by in the morning. Life is so much easier being under one roof! Another bonus is that Dom does all of the dinner dishes and I Cook the dinner. One less job for me!
4. Morning Time
It is way harder to get ready for work now! There are so many times when I am cooking breakfast and running around that Dom wants to come in and dump baby powder in my hair or tackle me and try to make me late! We have a blast, but I am much more frazzled when I get to work.
However, breakfast is now my favorite meal to cook. It is more fun when you have someone to share it with.
5. What To Call Each Other
It is so hard to get use to saying "husband" and "wife"! We keep catching ourselves saying "my boyfriend" or "my fiancé". The other day Dom was bragging about how he is the best "boyfriend" ever cause he was being Mr. Handyman around the house! It is hard to change after so long.
We now have a joint bank account which is fun and kinda scary. How do you get your husband a surprise gift if he can see where everything comes from! I almost bought a new scarf at Target the other day and then though "Dom might need this money for something else. Maybe I should ask him first". It is just a weird feeling to include someone else in all of your decisions and thoughts!
Still... it was a super cute scarf!
But, no matter how many little things chance in our life, I can't help but answer the "How is Marriage" question the same way every time.... AMAZING. I love my husband and I wouldn't want life to look any other way. I can't wait for all of the changes that are going to be coming our way.
