I mentioned about a week ago that I was finding a routine in the mist of chaos. I had a couple people respond with concern. Believe me it's good chaos. My boyfriend of six mos and I decided to move in together. I don't usually take leaps of faith like this but it just feels right. We have the same goals, perspectives in life and we thoroughly enjoy each other. I've been single for 10 years and never thought I'd find someone to fit into my life so perfectly.

So, this decision has brought with it the tasks of painting John's entire house, sorting through his house to make room for my stuff, moving all my furniture on a whim last sunday (we were going to wait another week but had help on Sunday), and now...I need to finish packing my stuff, incorporate it in to John's house (many many multiples), sell some furniture, have a garage sale, and clean my old house. And get all the utilities canceled/transferred. Shooooo!!! I'm tired.

I've spent 2 nights in my new home. We are trying to get into some kind of routine. So far we've been coming home, eating supper then going to our respective gyms for workouts.....that part is working well. Trying to decide if we want to get memberships at the same gym. I can't see giving up my Y membership but his fitness center is sweet!! (but no pool). What is not working is that John doesn't stop moving until he goes to bed. I'm use to at least a couple hours to unwind in front of the TV or reading. I feel like I'm not doing my part if I'm not doing as much as he does around the house.

So, that's an update on my life......like I said it's exhausting!!!! But I'm so happy.

    It is great to be in love. My boyfriend moved in together in a new apartment and then a month later we got married. It has worked out well. With us he is the one sitting in front of the T.V. while I run around it works for us as we have time alone to chill. Things will work out for you don't worry so.
