The slowest 9 hours every week!

Since I started this job, they told me I have to work Sundays, I take Friday off instead, and OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH MYYYYYYYYYYYYYY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD, the day goes by SUPER SLOW, nobody is here except me and couple of guys from the lab.

I have to admit, I’m one of those who’d rather have a very busy day at work more that a slow day, because simply, the day goes by waaaaaaay faster, but this is like dying slowly, last Sunday I was about to sleep while setting, beside the fact that I annoyed the heck of Husbany by calling him ever 30 min complaining how bored I was, 7abeebi he is sooooooooo taweel bal.

back to my slow day. ::Sleepy::

On How to Adjust to Married Life!

Sometimes couples get so wrapped up planning the wedding; they forget about the actual marriage. Married life isn’t all cozy dinners and intimate times; it’s also a lot of compromise and communication. So how are we (and b we I mean newlyweds) Adjust to our new life?

Compromise.
The word sounds easy enough, but when it comes to all the routine parts in our lives we take for granted (and have been doing the same way for years), it can be easier said than done.

You may be a clean freak and he may think it’s fine to leave a week’s worth of dishes in the sink. Or you might crash at 10 p.m. while he’d rather stay up past midnight. Each of these living adjustments can initially seem like deal breakers, but if you’re married then you can’t bail so easily-you need to find some middle ground. That may mean you don’t blow up at him whenever there’s a dirty plate on the counter and she takes a nap in the evening so she can stay up with you, but whatever the solution, it should be something the two of you come up with together.

Money Matters.
Money can be a sensitive issue, and we all need to figure out how to handle our savings, debts, investments and incomes. For some a joint account works fine, but for others, keeping your money separate or having a joint and separate account can be the key to staying together. Ideally we should figure out what system would be best before getting married.

 

Another key to financial happiness is full disclosure. That means you can’t hide your massive credit card debt and he needs to own up to any spending sprees as well. Because even if your money is in separate accounts, you’re still a team and one person’s actions affect the other.

Your First Fight.
It doesn’t quite have the same ring to it as your first dance or first kiss, but the first major fight is bound to happen and is just as, if not more, important to your marriage, because it will set the tone for how you handle future conflicts.

“The problem that most married couples run into is that they say [what’s bothering them] when they’re angry. Never discuss serious issues in the heat of the moment, wait until later when everything’s fine and say ‘this is how I felt when that happened, If it gets so heated that everybody’s yelling, you have to make an agreement that the argument will stop because it’s just not doing anything for you.”

Nobody ever said marriage was easy, but we can all make the transition go much smoother if we’re willing to compromise. And to give us all a little perspective.

 

My mom gave me those advices before I got married to keep in mind: 

“[Your partner] stays the same and the relationship stays the same. Things you like about the person you like more, and things that bother you bother you more. If you go into the marriage thinking that will somehow be different, you put unnecessary pressure on the relationship,”

“There is no such thing as happily ever after. There’s good times and bad, but don’t expect to be happy all the time. People that expect to be happy all the time get disappointed a lot and get divorced early,”
