Yesterday was our one month anniversary.
This is what I did:
- Made breakfast for us.
- Cleaned the kitchen.
- Obsessed over the newest wedding photos Kelli put up.
- Went to the Dr. for an antibiotic for the UTI. Had my hip x-rayed as well, since my leg has begun to go numb whenever I sit down. Maybe I should write a post on it…
- Went to Ross and TJMaxx and found some home decor stuff.
- Went grocery shopping.
- Came home and made whole wheat mac and cheese (definitely getting added to the Lovely list)
This is what he did:
- Ate breakfast
- Scheduled my Dr.’s appointment for me (I am a procrastinator when it comes to personal health)
- Worked from home
- Helped me unload groceries
- Shared his mac and cheese with me
So basically we celebrated our first month of marriage by eating eggs together, carrying around plastic sacks, eating a meal intended for a three-year old child, and sleeping. I’m not complaining… exactly. But it does seem like most couples make a big deal out of the wedding anniversaries for the first year. The problem was, I wanted him to magically know this on his own, and that never works out.
We exchanged gifts on the wedding day, and I wound up with a beautiful pearl necklace, but only because I pounded it into his skull that I was giving him something I had put a lot of thought and time into.
I’m a get-to-it kind of girl, why all of the sudden this passiveness relatied to getting what I want? I hope it doesn’t take me many more anniversaries/special days to realize that I need to speak up and say what I want.
