20 Things

I promised myself that I would update this blog much more regularly than I used to now that the busyness of the engagement and wedding has finally died down.  I thought that instead of writing a typical blog tonight, I would write a little list of a few things I've learned about being a wife during the first month of marriage. :)

#1. I like to sleep in the middle of the bed. Despite Mark being a whole foot taller than I am, all 5'2 of myself likes to claim the middle.
#2. I have inherited my mother's genes for cleanliness, but unfortunately it has multiplied to a state of neurosis almost. I'm trying to teach myself not to care about having a clean apartment...not working yet.
#3. Clothes will always magically appear in my dirty clothes hamper no matter how often I do laundry. 
#4. Boys eat a lot of food and drink a lot of milk.
#5. Me and power tools do not need to be near one another. Mark had a nice little non-bloody stab in his foot from when I tried to unplug the power drill. 
#6. No matter how hard I try, I'm not very good at hanging up pictures straight.
#7. When your husband is 6'3, everything he hangs up is really high on the wall (as my mother pointed out to me).
#8. Having two cats requires a lot of attention...especially concerning the whole litter box situation.
#9. Every time after I vacuum, my cats both roll on the backs on the floor like its the best carpet they've ever felt.
#10. Boys like to leave stuff out and not put it back in its place (Mark has improved though) :-)
#11. I have a wonderful husband who still is pursuing me and taking me to nice restaurants spontaneously.
#12. Mark loves our kitties more than I do sometimes, though he'll never admit it. :)
#13. I break around 2 glass objects per week.
#14.  It's so much better having a husband to help you bring in the groceries. 
#15. I require more naps than Mark does as he pointed out to me. I also am cranky right when I get up from a nap.
#16. As much as I hate it, Mark can cook asparagus much better than I can.
#17. I love having a husband to run errands with.
#18. Kitties like to take turns sleeping in empty boxes.
#19. Mark and I are both procrastinators about practical things.
#20. Mark reads historical and political literature whereas I read fiction. 


  1. I was amazed at how much food we went through too. I'm like, you know you don't have to eat 4 bowls of cereal at a time... :) And the putting things away thing doesn't really ever get better. There's not a good way to make them care. But I totally love having someone to run errands with too!!

  2. i'm a little bit obsessed with your blog now1 i love you!
