Grown up Stuff
Yeah we're really grown up huh? We stole the 3D glasses from the theater then went out, consumes massive amounts of alcoholic beverages, and wore the glasses all night. haha, but for the first time in my life I feel like I have developed somewhat of a routine. I Wake up at 4:30, take the "kids" outside to pee, then I usually "conserve water" (as Nicole would put it) lol and shower with the hubby. Then I make him breakfast, pack his lunch, and we say our goodbye before he's off for a long day at work. The first thing I catch myself doing after he leaves is to jump on the computer, and start my daily bloggy reading. I think I'm addicted seriously. Hubby has even dedicated "No blogging" times such as weekends when he's home, and at night when he gets off work. lol Is anyone else as addicted as I am? I really hope I'm not the only one! Things are really looking up though, I'm very excited I feel like we have more control over our lives. WE are still working on the "future plans" though. We can't seem to decide what we want. I want him to stay in the Navy, he wants to get out. We both want kids, just not now. We can't decide where we want to go if he does get out, stay here, go back to Texas, or start somewhere completely new? There is so much to decide on!
I stress over money a lot more than my husband does. I think it's because I don't work & if anything goes wrong, or if we ever come up short I feel guilty. I feel like it's my fault because I don't bring in a whole lot with just the jewelry. We like it this way though, we spend lots of time together being silly, the house is ALWAYS clean, he gets three home cooked meals a day (most of the time), and he never has to do anything when he gets home, he can just relax. My husband, up to this point has been the one to manage our money, but I feel like it's too much for him to deal with working all day & the stress of taking care of the financial stuff too. So we have begun to switch over so that I can take care of the bills and budgeting. So far I think I'm doing a good job, I've already managed to put money in our savings account, take care of all the bills, and still manage somehow to have plenty left over for the ENTIRE week of his family being here when they wanted to go out every single day.
I also started a list. It contains all the important stuff we need to take care of before the Big D. Stuff like getting me on the car insurance since I have FINALLY learned how to drive the Mini Cooper. I plan to move back to Texas while he is away I just feel like I would do better being around family. I am nervous about it though, I really like it here in VA. Have any of you ever done this before? How did it work out? I would greatly appreciate any advice!
