Ten Things That He Should Know About Me Before We Live Together
“Women who say that they have met the most amazing guy in the world are only saying that because they haven’t lived with them yet.” Heather Chapple,
Living together is complicated. We are gradually about to discover each others irritating habits. I’m hoping that our good qualities more than make up for the nails on the chalkboard ones. We are in it together. My goal is to find a way to get over, through, or around every obstacle. Here are some things he should know beforehand.
I need a junk drawer. I like having a place for random things.
Shoes can go anywhere. I’m not editing my shoes to fit a closet. There is a pantry, oven, linen closet and under the bed to work with.
I save leftovers. No leftover is too small to put in the refrigerator. You can almost always find one half of a potato, a few pieces of spinach, twelve raspberries and a quarter of a banana in mine. I don’t always eat them.
Sweat pants, a sweat shirt and fuzzy socks are my home loungewear of choice when it is cold. I’m keeping my favorite red sweatshirt.
I leave the top off the toothpaste. I also forget to close drawers.
I like the toilet seat down,
I eat in bed. I like my side of the bed. I have certain favorite pillows that are arranged in a specific way. to help me sleep better. They are my pillows.
I cannot assemble furniture.
I may not always know where the remote is.
It will take my dog a long time to adjust.
But he will and then will we call it home?
