Many did not realize, I've been living alone for 9 months, it was educational.
I was able to unpack, sort out and get settled before Norm arrived.
Between moving, selling our home and work, Norm was not able to be here with us until 2 weeks ago. I must say he did it, I left and he had WORK to do & YES, I knew he would- he did it! Yes... WE ARE finally CELEBRATING!
This year we will be married 28 years and frankly, I don't give a fuck what anyone "thinks" they know about our relationship. Someone comment recently, after watching us argue, Norm & I arguing due to stress is common as it is with most Relationships... They "could never do it- live like THAT". Like what? Arguing form time to time?
An opinion, I might add made by someone NEVER having been in a long term relationshiop - phhhhbt. Some think relationships are not about arguing - in 28 years? Give me a fucking break. I literally laughed out loud at an article stating: Isolation with a mate will make or break a relationship. No shit.
This is nothing. We have come thru some serious difficult times in 28 years and we will come thru this one too! As the team we've obviously become. Storm keeps us grounded too.
9 month was great- FOR US BOTH. He missed us like crazy ;). Norm has a new appreciation for us... me in particular. & I missed him... I'm well aware of the handyman I have but I found myself CONSTANTLY worried about him. Now he is here and we are excited about the journey to continue, BOTH so grateful to be in our new home. We've both acknowledged - we can do this.. and yes WE can. Together, we will make this home our EDEN.
The past two weeks have me been SCREAMING: 6 FUCKING FEET NORM!!
Wash YOUR HANDS! Blow your nose!! Stay out of the kitchen! Don't TOUCH ANYTHIN!! He moved up and was promptly BANISHED into his bedroom for 2 weeks - only able to use his bathroom and go outside. 14 days NOW & we both feel fantastic, ready to go out and chop trees! We have agreed we will not be leaving our property for 2 weeks.
I know from 28 years of strugglin with bills - how to stretch food/meals. ;) Who knew?
YES, this is a difficult time - learn from it- that person you are 'stuck' with... it's not all lovely dovey - it's HARD work. Surviving a deadly pandemic with someone..
It's nice not to be alone. I never 'feel' alone, I think it's because we keep pretty busy- dogs help too.
If you can survive this with your partner.. you will survive more.
Have patience. Give each other space. WASH your fucking hands and stay HOME!
With TLC & THC
