I figured I might write a follow up quickly to my last blog in case some of you were curious how it is going....
Surprisingly great! I guess that's what happens when you almost spend every night together. My toothbrush was already there, same with my shavers and creams and shampoo. All the bathroom rituals of getting ready together have pretty much been in place for the last six months since we have had so many sleepovers during the work week. And it definitely helps that he doesn't have to be at work until 10a, sometimes 11a, which means he's always sleeping when I'm out the door, or he's just getting into the shower if he has to go in early. So we have the getting ready thing situated already, probably always have, and probably always will.
Also, he let me come in to his home and sort of take over and he's happier with how the place looks now as a result. All the things he dreaded doing, I did for him and we're both happy.
And now my kitty kitty is there and we're like one big happy family...Even with the roommate- did I mention that- yes, he has a roommate living there! A kid from Biola University. First I called him the Crazy Christian, but he's a good kid after all. He even just started dating the hottest girl on the show "PRETTY LITTLE LIARS" - Lucy something. I guess she's a Christian and he met her at Coffee Bean, bought her a coffee, she told Ryan Seacrest on the air that she met this really cute guy and that she hopes he calls her, he heard that on the radio, called, and now they've been on some dates. So the last few days I've got to hear these fun stories. It makes living with him, too, FUN!
So all in all, the living situation thus far is a piece of cake. And to be honest, I don't think it is going to be difficult.
For starters, we're never home. I'm going out tonight with a bunch of friends. He's going to the gym. We'll get home maybe around the same time, love on each other a bit. I might try to watch an episode of THE TUDORS while he reads his VARIETY, and then it's time to go to sleep and the next few nights will be the same, really. And if I'm not with friends, we go out together with friends. Funny, but weeknights are our nights to be social.
So it will really be like we're still just spending the nights with each other, except now I won't have to pack my bags.
As for weekends, we pretty much spent them together anyway, a part from the brunch here and there with friends and the tennis or racquetball he played.
I think we have this down already. WOW! It's crazy to say that, but really, I think we are off to a great start.
Sorry if this was boring with no drama to tell. Guess I can say there is a benefit to moving in with someone when you're in your 30's - you're pretty much already in your routines, and the person you're with either has to accept it or not, end of story. There's always adjustment, but not much.
A big, WHEW! and AMEN!
