Yeehaw, it's fun! Adam does the dishes (score!) on a regular basis while I usually am the one to cook (and he remembers to compliment my food, big bonus). We bought a positively gargantuan English Ivy plant that is like our child. We are both just the right amount of neat-freak mixed with occasional slovenliness. He loves the cats. We've been cross-country skiing several nights and the other nights we head to the gym and he helps me hone my four-pack while I try to make him laugh while he's doing the plank on the floor. Yes, life is good. Of course, I've also noticed his bizarre idiosyncracies, like how ADHD he is with music in the car; the man can't listen to more than one song on a CD before changing it! I give him some good-natured crap about that; at least he can laugh at himself. Then we had a "discussion" the other night after I witnessed his first major mood swing (origin difficult to pinpoint, but we figured it out eventually) and when I called him on it, he actually stepped up to the plate and apologized for acting like a toddler. I was pretty impressed by that.
So yes, it continues to go well, I just wonder...not everyone is as optimistic as you have been (there are some severely damaged goods up here in Alaska, and I know several of them!) and they have me chewing my nails, despite my best intentions not to, about where it will end up. "Oh, you moved too quickly," or "Oh, just wait another two months, you'll see." I haven't had a real relationship for so long, this is very eye-opening! Can you guys relate some stories about living together? Tell me some things that have driven you crazy and some things that you can't live without in your relationship.
