Tears, Money, and More Tears
It has taken several tears, many arguments, and a good number of huffs and puffs to organize and furnish our home. From Thursday until today, Matt and I have been going around shopping for various items in our house once again and getting rid of things that we have no use for anymore.
It almost makes me feel like I ran a marathon.
And yet, there is still so much more to be done.
It’s like you pour money into your house and it swallows it up so easily that you get just a quick glance of the new items in it before they blend in right away.
I’m never quite sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. All I know is that home ownership is a financial drain. But it’s slowly coming along.
Oh and we made a huge leap forward in our relationship today – we managed to get through Ikea and out of the parking lot WITHOUT ARGUING. Can you believe it??
I still think Ikea is where relationships go to die though.
