A Husband's Guide to : Settling In

Now that the wife and I have moved we have begun a new ritual of settling in.  Old rules of behavior have been thrown to the wayside as we are both committed to making this new place cleaner, nicer, and more inviting than the last...

All of sudden there are new rules that I have had to keep up with and I have begun a list...

TheHusBlog Definition Pause : The New Rules of Settling In

  • We have a hamper for a reason!  So back in the day (like a week ago) I could simply take off my clothes and leave them by the bed while I tucked myself in.  I would of course eventually pick these clothes up and put them in some sort of hamper.  Now I must place all clothes in the hamper immediately, there is no floor staging area...  
  • Nothing is to be on the bathroom counter!  As a man, I have few grooming products.  Toothbrush, Toothpaste, Mouthwash, Deodorant, Razor, Shaving Cream, Hair Gel, and Cologne.  That's it.  That is all I need.  Now all of these items used to be able to rest comfortably on the counter and just mind their own business.  Now they have been relegated to drawers and cabinets, only seeing the light of day to be used, then placed back in their dark corner once again.
  • Kitchen shall remain so clean as to make you scared to eat!  Our kitchen is spotless.  It is so spotless that model homes look messy.
Now the best part of all of this...  I know how this ends.  It ends in normalcy.  All the crazy that my wife and I are putting out there will slowly fade into a normal routine.  There will be nights the sink will be filled with dishes, and slowly but surely the mouthwash and the razor, and even the deodorant will make a home on the bathroom counter.  

Changing the place we live invites an opportunity to change bad habits, but it also provides a validation of the habits we already have.  I love how clean the new place is, but I am pretty sick of running to the hamper when I really just want to crawl into bed.
