There are a couple things about married life that I'm still trying to adjust to. As for living with HeRoos-no problem. He is actually a very good roommate and is even willing to mop the floors AND clean the toilets (if I ask very nicely). It's great having a roommate with benefits. wink wink
The difficult transition for me has been trying to make new friends way out west. I have lived with roommates for the past twelve years and am used to always having friends around and people to do things with. I loved meeting friends for dinner, walking at the park or just hanging out and talking.
Now that HeRoos and I are married and live at the edge of the earth, I feel like my social life has done a complete flip-flop. I still keep in touch with friends but we don't see each other nearly as often and it takes a lot more effort when we do.
Saturday night was a perfect example. Due to my friend withdrawals, we thought it would be nice to see a movie with some friends so I got on the phone and started calling around (most of my friends who live in SLC are single). Call after call, it was the same thing-they already had plans (hot date, dinner, party, etc.). I realized that as much as I hated going to parties as a single person, it was nice to have a party to go to.
This entry really has no point except to say that married people need friends too.
