What I Did In 2 Months of Marriage- by Sloane

Marriage is fun. It is cool when you can do fun things. Some of these fun things are staying up late, sleeping in late and playing Wii. It is cool not to have to be bossed around by your parents anymore and no one yells at you for eating chocolate cookies or making a mess.

Now lest you think I am losing my mind, that paragraph above was written for me by my flower girl before I got married. She's 7; and she left out a few things.

Since we have been back from the hm, we have settled into a normal routine; you know, wake up, go to work, come home, cook dinner, go to sleep. Lather, rinse, repeat. Oh, but I left out break your foot in 2 places and be out of work for 6 weeks.

Yup, you heard me. I have a broken foot that has been in a cast since Oct. 11th. Awesome. It was so freaking painful, I can't even describe. Anyway, my job paid for me to take a car service from my house to my job for the first few days (it was a black limousine, for real), but I couldn't take the pain, so I've been working from home on an agency laptop that was purchased for me. Did I ever mention how lucky I was to find this job? Well I was and am.

I do have to give props to Dirty for really stepping up his game and taking care of me 110%. Don't tell him I told you, but before he goes to work, he prepares my breakfast, and lunch and then comes home and cooks dinner. He's also been handling the food shopping and the laundry. (He drops it off, but still) The only thing he drew the line at was cleaning and I don't blame him. We have a crew come in once a week and they do everything top to bottom. He's has even started the house hunt per my instructions. I did marry a winner.

So that's where I am right now. I haven't taken a proper shower in 6 weeks and can't wait until this cast comes off.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
