When I first met E, I never wanted to date him. I was over dating people I worked with, I had been there and done that and it didn't work. I became friends with him and quickly I feel head over heels in love with him. It was fast for both of us, we worked 14 hours a day together and then we would go out for drinks. We couldn't spend enough time together.
We were engaged two years after we started dating and married 1.5 years after that. Life was easy, living together was easy. E is not a hard man to live with, he is neat and thoughtful. He will clean the cat litter for me because I gag and I will iron his shirts for him because it bothers me that he does one a day instead of doing them all once a week. I will get a new battery for his watch because he can't find the time to do it for 2 years. He will scrub toilets and cook dinner when I just can't do it one more time.
I never though marriage was work, it just wasn't like that for us. I was wrong, it is work. Hard work. We have done a lot of that hard work this year. Our marriage is worth it and so is our family. We have had deaths, health scares, a miscarriage, moves and enough crap for one lifetime already.
That should mean we have had our share and the rest of our lives should be smooth sailing, right? Well, we can hope.
We are always open to a new chapter in our lives.
Fortunately we just turned our page and our new chapter is starting. You will be along for the journey.
We are expecting a new baby next year.
