0 to 60

so until recently, we have been living together and cooking together and just being together and it has been fantastic. little things would throw us off, like the fact that i knew every time he took money out of the ATM because we shared a bank account or that i would fill out my life insurance and put him as the benefactor and not my mother. but all in all, i never really felt "married".

then this weekend we went to home depot and bought a grill and manure, and he assembled and grilled and i weeded and planted. we now have paper plates and a backyard and nice grill and a vegetable garden and we are so married. we travel to see each other's parents and pay bills together and take turns cleaning the kitchen and talk about what kind of dog we will get and how we could fit a crib into the study/guest room if it came to that.

and we tease each other that we are both stuck bc we signed something and sent it to city hall and he has to deal with my never doing the dishes and i with his 4 hours of deaf-ness inducing video game playing forever, but you know what - it's true. and that is wonderful and intimidating at the same time.
