Since me and Remarkable have been dating, our lives have started to move into a more domestic realm. This is a blessing for me, because this time around, I want my relationship to feel like a "family." I want to know that I have a tight knit unit that I can always count on and also be there for them. In my past relationships, I felt like that my house was just mine, and my boyfriend just stayed with me. This time around, I want it to feel like "our house." This thought shift not only takes some of the every day burdens off of me, but allows me to fully appreciate doing things for the people I love.
Everyone knows I HATE washing the dishes. HATE. HATE. HATE washing dishes! I can't cook, and my laundry is done in a very "single man" type of way. I don't really fold undergarments and roll up socks, to me it is just too much of a hassle! With Remarkable, all that has changed. He is very much an organized, neat and clean kind of guy, and a bag of socks just won't cut it with him! So now both our socks are rolled up and placed nice and neat in the drawer. All tank tops and t-shirts are folded to fit all our stuff, and the same for underwear. Now this doesn't mean that I'm going to automatically start rolling it up all the time, but I'm going to try. I stress "try." Honestly if I'm doing it with him, it's OK.
Which brings me to my next point. I don't know how to cook, and dating a cook didn't help. But now, especially with the economy, I cook at least 4 times a week. I have perfected my healthy baked French Fries, and my special recipe for homemade Chicken Tenders is almost on point! I still haven't gotten to the other stuff, but Honestly if I'm doing it with him, I will.
Now we come to dishes. uugghhhhhhh. No longer are the days of a sink-filled dishes that last a week. Now that I cook, dishes just CAN'T stay in there long enough... I need them! LOL. So as I cook, I wash dishes, or if he cooks, I will do a couple. Now I won't do it every night, and if I have guests, I may get to to tomorrow. But I do them. I have a new faucet now to, so my "HELL WATER" which everyone calls it, won't be burning anyone anytime soon. While I still will get an attitude when asked to wash dishes, Honestly if I'm doing it for him, I can.
WHAT IS IT THAT YOU HAVE DONE DOMESTICALLY FOR A MAN THAT YOU NEVER THOUGHT YOU WOULD HAVE DONE BEFORE?
