I think that I went into things with an unrealistic view of what it truly would be like. Blame it on all those cheesy romance novels I have read over the years! As my husband frequently informs me, real men in real life do not act that way! Not to say that my husband isn't amazing & loving. He is, don't get me wrong. I think I was expecting more .... romance and the whole Norman Rockwell scene. I envisioned this life where Chloe threw no more fits, we had no disagreements & life was one big apple pie. Boy was I wrong. Chloe is still Chloe, and what I'm hoping is normal rambunctious, moody 5-year old behavior. There are certainly disagreements, generally focused around my shopping addiction and my husband's "hermit-like" ways. While I'm not a huge social butterfly I do like to get out of the house, go places, see people. He would be content to sit on the couch & watch movies or play guitar hero every day & night.
It's taking some adjusting, not only to married life but to life when a soldier returns from deployment (but that's an entirely different blog!) but I think I'm starting to get the hang of this "married thing". And call me crazy but I actually enjoy making dinner for our family every night, I enjoy doing the laundry and most of all I love waking up to his arms around me. And because what's a blog without pictures.... here is me & my honey the day he left for his 15 month tour. Pics of the homecoming to be posted soon!
