Admissions

Image result for sleepy dog

I admit I haven’t done a good job of sticking to my wish to blog at least once a week.

I admit I haven’t done a good job of reading other blogs as regularly as I would want to.

I admit I have fallen back into my hustle and bustle after my vacation in spite of promising myself that I will take it easy and find time to breathe.

I admit I am neglecting my health and workout routine.

I admit I need to sleep.

I admit I need to stop with the admissions and plunge head on into what has been happening.

The big one first – I moved (yes again!) to a new place with D 🙂 We have rented an apartment and the last few weeks have been just about setting it up, cleaning and washing, decorating, getting appliances and making it less echo-ey.

We are slowly getting used to calling it home. Opening the door after a long day feels GOOD! This is our space – our first big adventure post marriage (even though we are so lazy that we haven’t officially gone about registering our marriage. All in a good time! Till then, I will enjoy my “single” life”)

One thing I realized is that the initial phases of setting up simply consist of 3 Es – excitement, expenses and exhaustion, the order is entirely upto you! I am also realizing the gravity of what living with someone entails and how different it is from having roommates. I really need to get used to sharing my bathroom with a guy on a permanent basis. However, I am trying to convince him to use the common bathroom in the hallway so that I can queen over the one attached to the bedroom.

Overall, the house is almost done. A few corners and a few nooks need to be handled, but otherwise we are functioning smoothly. The WiFi is (finally!) up and I can access my blog, baby elephants GIF pages and Buzzfeed quizzes to check which dog breed I am 😀 I can’t help but feel pride and a sense of ownership within these walls. It is entirely our domain. Looking at D working by the table and tossing him bits of paper with messages makes me think, that yes… We will find time to breathe and fully delve into making a home in every sense!

How has everyone been? 🙂

  3. Heartiest congratulations Prajakta! It’s Indeed a task to set up a house and then make it a home. With your description, i travelled 6 months back when I came back post wedding and we both took all those efforts in finding grind, curtains, selling up kitchen, unpacking, cleaning and what not… That too on with handling work!

    It’s actually fun. All the best!

  5. Hi sweetie! Glad you popped in to let us know how you’re doing 🙂 I think in time you’ll get more used to living with D, although I would be like you finding it hard to share my bathroom! I did so at one time though so I know I can do it,,, it’s just that I like my space too hehe! Don’t worry that you’re not on here as much but we just want to know you are happy 🙂 I hope you catch up on sleep soon xx

  6. Sometimes life just takes over. I’m struggling to stick to my normal blogging routine as life is busy at the moment and my brain is occupied with so much stuff that it’s sometimes really hard to come up with good posts… I decided to take some time off and head to the beach for a nice long walk in a couple of minutes. I know it will be so good.

  7. Ah, to be twenty something, or in my case thirty something, and to just starting out as a couple again. Actually, maybe not, since I was also pregnant at the time. In your case, though, I’m sure you both had the energy, and hopefully the time, to do all these things, to make all these adjustments while at the same time dreaming big dreams about your joint future, Congratulations, good luck, and may you experience only health and happiness in your new home.
