Getting our groove back

We are soooo boring........

It's kinda awesome. Its funny how we're still finding our way back into routines.  Laundry.  Grocery shopping.  All the things you just sort of do as you need to do have been things that I feel like we're just starting to find our groove with again.  But it's been good.  We still enjoy a bit of honeymoon-ish-ness now and then, but largely we've jumped right back into the idea of long term married life.  Not a bad gig. 

Our most recent adventure was one we've been talking about for as long as we've been planning the wedding - and possibly even longer.  We desperately needed a new mattress.  Badly.  For a long, long time now we've woken up aching and sore - complaining about being old and wondering if it would ever go away.  Then we realized - you know, it might be the bed?  So we looked, realized how expensive mattresses were these days and decided that the wedding was the priority.  Kandi woke up recently and said she just couldn't do it anymore.  And so... we made our first major purchase as a married couple.  Our bed. 

Guess what?  I'm not just old!!!  When I woke up the first night and realized that I wasn't in pain I was shocked.  I was afraid to move the wrong way or I'd somehow break the spell.  It was a wonderful spell.  It lasted most of the day.  And then the "old" snuck up on me.  Yea, I had a feeling it wasn't ALL the mattress.  I'll totally accept that.  Getting up to smack the heck out of the alarm without having the aches smack you back. Oh yea...  good stuff.
