This blog is going to document the process of a technical adult moving in with another technical adult (my boyfriend) and living together as grown ups. It will mostly be a running log of our consistent surprise at the rest of the world not quite meeting expectations.

Advice Shmavice! A Multifaceted Post

Things are going wonderfully. Since my last post we've put up two shelves and two framed pictures of Matt and I. I think a good next step would be to put up photographs of other friends and loved ones. Otherwise, if the only photos we have up are ones of the two of us, we're going to look creepy. Or arrogant. Or both.

Mason is coming along nicely. The separation anxiety is kind of a pain in the you-know-what, but a bigger pain is dealing with the misplaced advice and opinions from everyone else! Luckily Matt is very supportive of the methods we are using to deal with it -- safe, happy, professional methods. Unfortunately there has been little to no support from a lot of our respective families, which makes the whole situation even more frustrating!

People have asked me if Matt and I are sick of each other yet, considering we live together now, but the truth is we still don't really see a lot of each other. When we are home together, we're decompressing separately with our own separate hobbies. Lately we have taken to drawing/writing together on the couch, working on completely separate projects. He has been really into his artwork, and I am starting an online store with a friend. We'd like to try selling our own designs.

Thus far we haven't had to replace anything yet. Our furniture is still in intact, our windows now have fans in them to keep the air circulating, and our paint still looks great. Of course, around the time our walls look drab will be when we finally get around to painting the closet doors white like I originally wanted.

My next goals are

- purchase a Shark steam mop
- purchase decorative baubles to put in my dining room able foliage-designed bowl
- setting up an actual cleaning schedule
