14 things in 14 days

Tomorrow we will have been married for 2 weeks. Yea!!! So I thought I would make a list of
"14 things I have learned and love about being married in 14 days"
-Btw... these are in no particular order-

1. 50% of all marriages end in divorce. I believe 80% of those couples only had 1 bathroom.

2. He snores and I talk in my sleep. So we're even right?

3. How comforting his snoring can be when you wake up in the middle of the night and forget
where you are. :)

4. The dishwasher can cause a disagreement.

5. #4 means we're working together to clean up the kitchen. :)

6. Men have more clothes than we think.

7. It is impossible for one to get up in the morning and not wake the other no matter how quiet
you try to be.

8. He is not as quiet as I am.

9. Having someone to kill the spider and not laughing at you for asking. :)

10. The way he locks the deadbolt behind him if he leaves the house before I do. :)

11. Men and women are very different when it comes to water pressure in the shower. I figure
that out every time I forget to turn the middle knob before I turn on the water.

12. Its not the joint account you have to worry about, its the joint snack food that diminshes.

13. There are 2 places for everything. The place where it belongs, and the place it gets put.

14. He's the first and last person I see everyday. :)

Here a blog, there a blog.

So, since everyone else has a blog, I thought I'd jump off the bridge too.

Now I just need to figure out what to say so that people will want to read my blog.

I wanted to start a blog because I wanted to keep things up to date. I love reading my friends and families blogs because I love to see whats going on in everday life. The funny things my nieces do and budget and family tips from my sister, friends who don't live near and who I don't see often. It seems that even when you do talk to people often, you sometimes you still miss out on the little things because conversations are quick or interrupted. There are so many changes in peoples lives that when you catch up with someone, you only talk about the big things. We don't really get to the little things that are important to us every day. I want to share and learn more than just "we have 2 kids, I work here, he works there, we stay busy, what about you?" conversation.
