1 month down, Infinity to go
Well, today we have been married for one month. That obviously makes me an expert on marriage. So here are some things I have learned:
- I will not allow my children to play video games with guns. Explanation: T.J.’s cousin has her PS2 and games at our house still and so T.J. is currently trying to beat one of the games. He enjoys it, so I don’t mind having him play, plus we made a deal that if he plays those games he can’t complain or make fun of me reading Twilight. But I have realized from this experience I do not want my children playing video games all day long, especially any games with guns because I hate the sound and there are so many other productive activities.
- I really enjoy cooking. I took a class back in high school that taught me the basics, but I haven’t really used those skills until now. It may seem weird, but I just feel accomplished when I make a good and well-balanced meal for T.J. and I. Plus it’s fun to try new recipes and eat new foods.
- Life goes fast and will always be busy. We have been married for a month, but it feels just like a few days. We have done a lot this past month–traveled, moved, cleaned, worked–but it has been in this time that I have realized it will always be hectic, unexpected events will always come up. So it’s important to make priorities and stick to your plans, especially the priority of courting and visiting the temple.
- Patience is a virtue, one that I need to work on.
- Living with a husband is a lot different than living with roommates. It’s 100 times better, but sometimes is twice as hard (does that even make sense?). Let me try to explain. It’s the best time I have ever had, but I think my emotions sometimes make T.J. wonder if I’m clinically insane. On the other hand, a roommate would just know in a week, I’ll be back to normal. But he’ll get there 😉
- I don’t actually know too much about marriage.
- I also have no idea how people get married and don’t include prayer or scripture study into their lives. It is my lifeline.
So there it is. Oh and I’m just kidding about the blog post title. I am extremely grateful to be married to T.J. It has been a great month and I am very excited for the the many months to come.
