He She and New Beginnings

She: *with trepidation* I ordered a bunch of goodies online. Threw away old stuff that I didn’t think we needed. Want you to accompany me to the store for some other things I set my eyes on.

He: *calmly* Ok, ok and ok. Do what makes you happy. We’ll make the store trip this weekend.

Reading this will certainly make you feel that She has a neat bow tied around the gift that her married life is. A husband who doesn’t roll his eyes in dismay or gives his nod to everything his wife does without a hint of sarcasm is, well, just what the shrink ordered! 😉 😛

On numerous occasions I’ve confessed how acknowledging the opposites attract logic has strengthened our marital bond. It has also helped us delve into each other’s subconscious to understand what warms our heart or ticks us off. After almost twelve years of being happily married we’re still exploring each other and our relationship.

My blog has seen a slump in activity over the past few weeks but my personal life has packed in more thrills than I can handle. On one hand there’s the happiness of growing roots while on the other the apprehension of everything new. We’ve shifted to our new home and both kids have begun their new school. There’s a lot happening and too much to deal with. We’re all slowly learning to accept these major life changes.

I’m also discovering (and loving) a side of A that I hadn’t seen before. He has been actively participating and giving his precious opinions on the tiniest home-related details. For selecting furniture, picking out curtains to any other home decor shopping, we’ve been together. He hasn’t once nitpicked or whined about my spending, even calling it ‘a luxury I deserve’. I didn’t need new reasons to love him but he’s giving me few anyway. 🙂

His commute time to work has increased by an hour but the bliss I see in his eyes when he gets home everyday is palpable. We finally realised our dream of having a relaxed cup of tea in our balcony on a Sunday. All my fancy crockery is out of its boxes and utilised excitedly by the kids. They’re thoroughly loving their own room, the scattered toys and the pillow fights! Hockey is an (Mom-approved) indoor game for them. 😀 Space is a comfort we sorely missed till now.

Carrying new beginnings and happiness forward, I’m determined to start blogging and blog-reading with renewed vigour too. Along with the pinching remorse of giving up on the #AtoZChallenge, my thoughts and words had dried up and deserted me. Time wasn’t always a factor, motivation was. Thanks to some lovely and ever-supportive blog friends I’m looking forward to blogging actively now on. Wish me luck! 🙂
