I may not have posted often, but I would consider myself tech-savvy. I was re-reading my blogs (on MySpace) from all of 2008 and 2007 and 2006... well let's just say I was doing some serious reminiscing....
I decided to post here to say Thank You to everyone who helped me understand and plan for my wedding. Now, it's almost our 9-month wedding anniversaries and I wonder what you all think about when the term "newlywed" expries.
I love DH very much, more and more each day. I was just looking on MSN entertainment at celebrity hookups and breakups and I was definitely saddened by the lack of committement in Hollywood. I am so grateful to have met DH, I hate to think of what would happen if he wanted a divorce.
Sure, we have "heated discussions" and we're learning how to discuss our differences more effectively (he is a good communicator and I have a tendency to emotionally shut down). I made an early post on a general nest discussion board regarding some of the biggest problems I percieved in my marriage and I got my @** handed to me by no less than 10 other married women who said the 4 problems I listed were my fault and were all based on my lack of communication. That was soooooo useful for me.
Lately, the piece of advice I got from a female professional role model of mine was that I need a "Stich and B*&^%" circle of girl friends. I have been spending so much time with DH and his (our) male friends, I completely forgot to reach out to female friends. Now DH is getting a bit tired of my B*&^%ing about work-related day-to-day dramas and I've been told that the remedy is female companionship. Well, I guess that's why I'm turning back to the knot (now the nest). I hope all of you are doing well and enjoying your newleyweddedness (however long it lasts...)
