@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.
