So it’s almost been 1 month since our wedding and if this first month is any indication of the rest of our lives then it’s going to be crazy!!
When we got home from the honeymoon his car stopped working so we had to look for a new one, he also got called to not go into work one day but then was asked to go back in the next day so that’s good.
I got a call to meet with a hiring manager and got offered a new job, which I took and just started.
We’ve since found a new vehicle and are now starting to look at houses.
I guess it doesn’t seem like much but to us it’s felt like we haven’t gotten a chance to breathe since the wedding and that things are constantly moving and changing which is good for the most part, but we’re both looking forward to feeling “settled”.
Anyone else’s first month (or more) seem like a whirlwind of excitment or is this just us?

@MrsRose: DH and I didn’t get a lazy weekend together until we had been married for over five months. I mean that after we got back from the honeymoon, we quite literally did not get to sleep in together a single day for five months. It just didn’t happen. We had something big going on every single day for months on end.
Right after the wedding, my seasonal job started up, and that was every Saturday and Sunday for months on end. Then, I got a MASSIVE project that had to do with the job, and I ended up having to drive to the location an hour away and work on that for three or four hours every day after I finished my main job. It was hard labor, so I was constantly exhausted. We were also trying to spend all that time getting our apartment put together.
So yeah… It took months to finally catch our breath.

It’s typical, I think. Our first year has been a whirlwind of excitement and plans and things to do. But really, that’s just life. It doesn’t stop, so neither do we. 🙂

Oh this scares me. I have a feeling my honeymoon is going to be it as far as relaxation for a loooooooooong time!! Better live it up.

Oh boy did you get off light! I find that you work those wedding vows for all they’re worth in that first year!

It was bananas for us! I don’t know how we survived sometimes… 🙂
In our first month, he moved 12 hours and moved in with me. He started a new job, we shared 1 car (his job was on the other side of town w/ weird hours), my son started a new room in daycare and had transition issues, we bought a new car, I got a promotion at work…to top it all off, we hadn’t lived together so we were adjusting completely!!!
It was pure isanity! We are almost 2 months out and some things have gotten easier…but it’s still crazy.
