Although I’ve shared rooms with countless girls (ahh, college) living with my boyfriend has proved to be a completely different world. Let’s face it, men and women are just DIFFERENT!
Now that I’m in my new home, I feel inclined to put up decorations! After all, small decorations and good home cooking turn a house into a home. Since fall festivities are in full swing I’ve put up what I consider cute fall decorations. But some didn’t make the cut for the guys. “Too glittery” or “too girly” or “pointless” were their responses.
Lesson Learned: Don’t ask what he thinks about decorations. Just hang them.
Also, us girls…we shed…a lot! With long dark hair, the new shedding around our bedroom is something Vince isn’t used to. According to him, my hair is everywhere, even in between his toes (whoops!) So paying more attention to hair, especially in the shower drain, is extremely important now.
Lesson Learned: Pay attention to the hair I leave behind.
How do young men even survive on the food they eat? The freezer contains frozen pizzas, loaded hot pockets, and all kinds of processed junk while the cabinets hold snacks any 10-year-old would die for: Lays chips and Cocoa Puffs cereal. Making room for my fruits and vegetables wasn’t too difficult…what has been difficult is avoiding all that junk food that taunts me every time I open those doors!
Lesson Learned: Refrain from stuffing my face with snack foods.
There are TONS more lessons to be learned, I’m sure. These are the ones that have stood out in just four days.
