Well we did it!
We survived our first 12 months of marriage, okay not exactly 12 months but there's only another 16 days to go so I think it's fairly safe to celebrate.
Not that there was any doubt... well maybe when the snoring was so ridiculously loud and unbearable, but regardless we made it and I still need to buy some earplugs.
So now that the dust has settled and most of the boxes are unpacked (I swear I will get around to them eventually), I can reflect on the year that has been.
We've finally made it to Bunnings together and not just for a sausage sizzle (what a distant memory that is).
We've also visited Ikea on several occasions. It's a mistake we haven't learnt from yet.
We still argue about whether we should buy the big bag of chips although it is me saying no now.
I'm still learning how to compromise... but don't expect miracles any time soon.
And we've learnt how to work together as a team.
Which came in handy when COVID-19 hit.
From grocery shopping, to cleaning, cooking, working from home, and balancing a budget on a slightly tighter income; a pandemic can teach you a thing or two about working together.
Sure there are some complaints over things not being put away or were left in the sink instead of being put in the dishwasher, morning meetings that could be heard no matter which room you worked in, and sometimes work time would bleed in to personal time but somehow we survived.
And if we can survive being locked down together then I'm pretty sure we can survive anything.
Unless he eats my snacks. Then it's game over.
