It’s official ‘P’ & I have lived together in the condo for a year & a week now. Crazy how time flies these days.
We moved in together literally right before the world shut down, which definitely wasn’t easy & believe me, there were times where I had no idea if we would even make it out alive. But here we are, we did it, & i’m happy I can say we did.
So i’m just going to have some fun with this post, & obviously because he doesn’t know about my blog I’m going to share some things that I have learned that ‘P’ hates.
I don’t think anyone is ready for this:
- My shower cap
Yes, I use a shower cap to keep my hair from getting wet on my ‘non-hair washing days’. He hates it so much, that I made sure to buy a $5 three pack. So obviously every once in a while I’ll switch which one I use, just to throw him off even more.
- When I use self-tanner
Apparently this is a biggie & should probably be number 1 on this list (even though the order doesn’t matter). I have used self tanner for years, mainly in the winter like once a week just to not be like ghostly pale, however I learned that this is like the bane of his existence. He also has this weird love for white towels & sheets, which really show the self-tanner marks on them. So somehow I have sort of made it without tanning, I do it from time to time but have to be very strategic about it.
Yes, you read that right. He hates plants for no reason, what has the plant ever done to him. We have a few around the condo to add greenery, but i’m the one who keeps them alive. Would I like more? Obviously but i’m at my limit which is apparently 2 …. He does oddly enough pick out very nice flower arrangements for the kitchen table, which is a little secret of ours, but that’s about all he’ll do on the plant front. But at least there is a little greenery around.
- Running low on anything
So this is an interesting one. He loves to just be stocked up on things. Like we always have at least 2 of things so we don’t run out. Laundry detergent, paper towels, toilet paper, any cleaning supplies. He does buy in bulk a lot which does drive me nuts, like who needs 15 deodorants & body washes just sitting in the cupboard …
Yes, another shocker. We do not keep left overs unless it is something I can use for lunch the next day. But we do not have leftover, schmorgus board dinner nights.
I kept this at 5 because I could really deep dive for more, but despite his weird ocd for clean counter tops & stocking up for doomsday. We made it, while living in under 800 square feet together. Here’s to at least another year in the condo together (since according to him we aren’t allowed to move thanks to the housing boom going on). I think we have this small space living down to a science at this point, so we’ll see.
