I love Carson.
Yep, I said it.
Life is stressful. It's even more stressful if your spouse is. well. one of those unhelpful, uncaring types. (Psh, yeah that's why you don't marry those types right?) It's surprising how people can change once you get married. For me? Carson just got BETTER than he was.
And I mean, he was a pretty good guy (I married him, didn't I?)
And now that we're married, I am more stressed out than I ever have been (excluding when I was going to school with 3 jobs and planning a wedding) but Carson makes me feel like I'm the best ever. And let's face it, I can be a mess sometimes. Ok, fine, a lot of the times.
-I hardly get ready in the morning these days and he makes me feel like I'm the prettiest girl around.
-When I'm super stressed about a test, deadline, getting shoots edited on time, he's massaging my back and asking if he can get me anything.
-He makes my lunch every day and brings it to me at work so I can have it "fresh" instead of in a lunch box sitting for hours.
-He fills up the gas in my car before I go to work if I'm low.
-He never forgets to pray with me before bed, even if he plans on staying up later.
-We're selling his car so I can get a new camera. He'll be driving a scooter soon. Woo!
-He can ALWAYS tell when I'm sad or worried about something. It helps, knowing that he is aware of my slightest mood change, and is wanting to help me through anything.
-He is constantly saying he's glad he married me and that we are together.
Today, we had a couple coming over for "Guess Who's Coming Over to Dinner?" It's something our young married couple ward does. They have people sign up to "attend" or "host" and they mix it all up so neither knows who is coming over or where they're going. It's a good way to meet people in the ward. I had signed us up to host. I had to work until 3, so I had Carson get the chicken in the crock pot earlier. I had told him I could do the rest, and that we'd clean the front rooms and guest bathroom and get everything ready when I got home from work.
Well when I got home, everything was already cleaned. The dishes done, dishwasher going, chicken cooking, bathroom cleaned and counters wiped down. I was shocked! It was such a kind gesture and a load off my day. Seriously, I about cried. I don't think he knows how much I appreciate him.
It's been a good 8 weeks of being married. I'm so happy I have him.
Wow, have I failed! I wanted to do weekly updates and that just didn't happen. I took on too much work and it really got the best of me....
