head-in-hands-manSo, life still isn’t quite back to normal here at Nagua Bay number 45 just yet. The pad is finally starting to regain some of its old composure but there is still plenty to be done: mountains of dishes to be worked through, dirty and unpacked clothing scattered everywhere, wedding gifts to find cupboard space for, documentation to be filed and updated, you get the picture.

And that’s pretty much what has been keeping Chantelle and me busy in the evenings following our triumphant return from honeymoon on Monday afternoon, leaving in all honesty, little time for anything else.

Obviously with me not having lived at home for a long time and being pre-occupied with all things wedding-related has left a pile of administrative things to deal with, and in time I will catch up I’m sure, but seriously, I can’t wait to have everything back to normal in our lives and pretty much let life go on as what it always has.

I can’t wait to return to karate (damn work, traffic and chores kept me from returning on Wednesday evening already) as well as just the feeling of walking into our place after work, turning on the kettle and just sitting down in front of the TV, content that there is nothing that I have to do.

Sigh. But I guess there’s simply no rest for the wicked. After all, we still need to sit down, work out our new combined budget, discuss the various name change-affected things that need to happen and of course plan just where we want the future to take Mr. and Mrs. Lotter.

But at least nearly all the dishes is now done, and that in itself is a blessing I tell you! :P
