- Wedding: July 2010
T and I spend the night a little bit with each other, usually when my son would go to visit his stepmom and little sister, but we chose to not live together (with son) until right before the wedding and when the issue with my house and lease agreement coincided.
that time is NOW. We’re moving in this weekend. Me to his house. We get along wonderfully and have been imho, a family for a good long while, but I am a little scared.
First of all I haven’t lived with anybody except for my ex husband and that was over 7 years ago. I haven’t shared a bathroom, closet (I have two large walk in closets right now and am freaking only on giving that up..T’s house overall is far larger than mine), refrigerator, remote, or anything. I honestly got comfy living my way in my space and while T is over here all the time, I know it will be different.
I do believe we will do wonderfully and that this is just a last minute bit of feeling the loss of my single girl freedom and living alone, but I am worried. What if I snore? I do have allergies. What if my dog (the indoor one) pees on the carpet? Well that has already happened and he didn’t lose his cool. Ugh, morning breath. And the only thing that does bother me a real teeny bit. We both sleep on the same side of the bed. We have discussed this, and my answer was whoever jumps into bed first gets “their” side.
As I sit here, boxes surrounding me, and am wondering how the heck will I go thru each box and find a place for the stuff over there. How will I manage with only half a very large walk in closet?
Plus side…dual incomes! He said I can do a good bit more for myself (can’t remember when I even considered that as it’s been years) and am planning a trip to the salon soon and to get a personal trainer at our gym. Plus side..eating healthier. T eats so darn healthy and I will be close to the whole foods! Woo hoo! Being able to curl up with him every night and watching our favorite shows together. Having an amazing view on his back deck. Knowing my sweetie is mine and I his.
Did you have a moment like me where you were at the brink of moving in with your FI/bf/SO and felt wistful? How did you feel? What were your worries? How was it after immediately moving in?
