So, the other day D and I went to a local place to see about getting a new bed. Now. We went with the sole intention of getting a mattress and boxspring. If the price was right maybe the frame too. So we went and found one we like, with a really awesome frame and headboard set. So we go and ask the price and he quotes us. Then he also quotes us for the whole bedroom set. Bed with frame, nightstand and dresser with mirror. O_O (At the time we thought it came with 2 nightstands, but it came with only 1. *shrugs*)
Now, a dresser had been on our “need to purchase in the future” list. So, we went and looked at the set again, looked at each other, smiled and said “yep, let’s do it.” Now, I hate, hate hate adding in more monthly payments. But D is right. How else could we afford to get a new bed which we desperately needed? Or a dresser? Which we also needed. Badly. We didn’t have one. I have a small 2 drawer nightstand that barely fits my own socks and panties and bras. Let alone some place for his underwear and socks. So. We have our new furniture! It finally arrived last night, 2 days late. It was pretty nice ‘cuz the delivery guys made sure to put it all together for us (bed together on frame and mirror on dresser) right where we wanted them in our bedroom.
So here’s the nightstand. Currently, it’s holding all of our adult novelties 🙂 It’s pretty sad though, ‘cuz… it’s just about to overflow already!! *laughs* Yea, we’re naughty 😉
And quite obviously, here’s the dresser. I have the left side and D has the right. He was pretty happy to be able to fold up his shirts and pants again and put them away. I was happy to have my panties and bras put away! LOL I hang pretty much all my clothes.
And last but not least, the bed! 😀 The colors are the same, from the head/foot boards to the dresser and night stand. The lighting just doesn’t show it very well in the pic. I’m so happy about our furniture! And so is D.
I’m a little bit “holy shit” about it all ‘cuz it’s all happened so fast. But at the same time..it all feels right. It feels like things are slipping into place, some slower some quicker than others. It feels like we’ve been together for several months, rather than one. And D agrees. We both agree that it’s a good thing.
Our lives have integrated with each others so naturally and smoothly. We didn’t even try, it just happened! One of my favorite things is that while we are willing to give each other our opinion, we support each other in what we decide, in the end we allow each other the freedom of choice. We ensure that we allow each other, and ourselves, to have the right to make our own decisions. Even if it’s something as silly as when to turn around in the shower so we can get our back washed. (We pretty much always shower together, and wash each other.)
We recognize that both of us has feelings, and that sometimes we can get cranky or emotional for no real reason, it just happens. And we are aware enough to say “what do you need right now?” and then respect the answer. We are also both self aware enough to simply say “I’m having a bad day” or whatever fits the situation.
I really want to write more, but I need to get to work. First day I can walk to work! YAY for exercise and saving on gas!! 😀
