Okay everything is in the place! I did not realize how much STUFF we both have collectively until I saw it in boxes and all of the entire house. We both agreed we need to throw or donate some stuff away!
THANK YOU for all of your comments. I am so using all of your suggestions. Not to mention it is always comforting to know I am not the only person who is figuring out this whole living together thing.
No internet or TV until Sunday which has been actually really good. We have to entertain each other and talk with each other. It has been a great way to bond in our new place. When I read an article about not putting a TV in the bedroom, especially your first year of marriage, those people really knew what they were talking about.
BIG QUESTION!!! How do you all divide up your cleaning duties around the house!? I come from a "old school home". Where my mom stayed home and did all the housework and my dad did the yard work or fixed things around the house when they broke. His parents always had a house keeper, plus similar "old school" roles for his mom and dad. Plus, I don't think he has ever cleaned up after himself. I don't necessarily want to have this type of set up. Mr. C CANNOT do laundry to save his life, he always finds the RED or Pink something and puts it in with the wrong load. So he is banded from doing laundry. Or shrinks his clothes. So this was the first decision made. The only rule I made was I would only launder things in the hamper. I hope this is a good incentive.
As for everything else, the only other things we agreed on was he would take out the trash. So I need some serious help/suggestions. I'm thinking like a teacher and wanting to give him a rewards chart, which won't go over well :)
