Just checking in

So we have been here a month. As Ben has said there have been many bumps but we have managed all of them well. Largely thanks to Ben working from home and just having a head for the things that go with owning a house that I don't seem to have yet!

Work is going well. I have now taught a week and a half worth of class. My students are eager to learn and that makes teaching much easier!

Unpacking the Office

Jessie and I specifically looked for a 3-bedroom house so that I could have an office and she could have a studio.  The idea was not only to have our own personal space in an otherwise shared household, but to keep me focused on my work during working hours and allow me to leave it behind at the end of the workday.

About time I posted something...

I figured it was about time for me to actually post something on here! As Ben said it is the first year anniversary of the day we met. It seems simultaneously imposible that it has only been 1 year and that it has already been 1 year. Ben and I just click so well I feel as though I have known him my whole life but at the same time I spent 27 years without him so it seems as though we met just yesterday! But enough of the sap!

One year and counting

Today is the first anniversary of the day Jessie and I met in person.  One year ago today, Jessie took a leap of faith and drove to Fairfield to meet a guy she'd previously only exchanged emails and phone calls with, and the phone calls only lasted a few minutes at a time.
