Sean has officially been moved in for a little over a month. We're currently occupying a 600-square-foot, one-bedroom apartment. Oh, and we share it with my two cats. And they take up a ton of space of course. Even though he was here a lot before officially moving in, life is definitely a little different now that we have the same address.
Since he moved in ...
... I run the dishwasher.
Seriously, I never used the dishwasher when it was just me. I washed them by hand. Now, we use too many dishes for that.
... I try more new recipes.
When I was just cooking for me, I'd stick to the tried and true favorites. I rarely branched out. Now, I'm always on the hunt for new dishes to try.
... I clean up the kitchen faster.
I used to be fine letting dishes sit for a day or two. But he said his mom taught him to clean as he goes. My mom tried to teach me that too, but apparently he listened better.
... I go to bed earlier.
I am a night owl. It was nothing for me to stay up until 11 or midnight during the week. Since he gets up at 3 a.m. for work (for now), he is usually in bed by 9. And I'm usually not too far behind.
... I had to buy a new shower head.
I'm 5'2" and he's 6'1". Clearly, we have different needs when it comes to water disbursement.
... I purged a lot of clothing.
He needed room to put his things in my closet. It forced me to be more serious and selective about which clothes I kept. I honestly can't remember any of the pieces I got rid of so it was obviously time for them to go.
