It’s Good To Be Home

Coming back from the honeymoon is like waking up from a dream. Every­thing is exactly as I left it, but it’s taking me a bit to adjust to the change.

The changes are crazy, but wonderful!

  • Sleeping in a bed with someone else takes some getting use to. Sometime we fight for the middle.
  • The pantry and fridge are full of food. My stomach is happy just thinking about it.
  • There are more than two kinds of shampoo and I can’t count all the make-up. It’s a world I though having a sister would prepare me for, but alas I am still constantly surprised by it.

There’s so much more. I have only been back a few days so the apartment is still a mess: boxes are every­where (but I can still find every­thing!), nothing but the kitchen is set up (but it’s a great set up), and getting all our finan­cials in order was harder than I thought it would be (no internet for a week put me a bit behind).

But none of those are really issues. Every­thing is great in my world. There’s plenty to do and lots of new stuff to adjust to, but there is also the rest of my life to figure it out.

I’ve learned a lot during my short marriage, and I’ll be sharing some of that shortly, but until then thank you for your support on facebook, twitter, and right here on the blog. I appre­ciate it more than I could every say!

    Congrats again Alex. Marriage is great. Enjoy every minute (even the seemingly small, insignif­i­cant ones)!

      I am already having a blast being married! Today was the first day I came home to her. I have to say, it’s pretty epic having someone to come home too!

    Did they say “Welcome Home” when you went through customs? That was my favorite part of overseas travel.

    I think before I get married I’m going to get a body pillow and practice sleeping with that. In the morning I’ll see if it’s still on the bed and, if not, I can warn my future wife that she might sometimes wake up on the floor and that she’s just going to have to learn to live with that.

      sadly he did not. He asked the reason for our trip and said, “Congrat­u­la­tions” when we got in. I’m pretty sure I was jipped the best part of traveling overseas.

      Your body pillow idea is the best I’ve ever heard! If only we had such wisdom leading up to our wedding…maybe things would be different. lol

        If the guy wasn’t going to welcome you back to America, what was the pointing in leaving at all?

          I cried myself to sleep that night…

            At least you had either a wife or a body pillow to comfort you.
