How is married life treating you?

Hello you!

Guess what, I got married. It's been about 2 months. I did a lot of window shopping for my groom before I made my mind and said This is It.

Everybody has been asking me - so how is married life treating you? This is the new conversation starter. And if you know me well, you can guess that I hate this question. I would rather answer to - how are you treating your married life? Hehe.


I am holding betal leaves like a traditional Bengali bride. They said I was one of the most non-shy,
talkative brides they had ever seen! Ahem!
I feel I am caught in a whirlwind since I got married. As soon as I came back from my two week long wedding (which did not include a honeymoon), I started travelling for work. For almost an entire month I was on wheels. I have never handled so much work at the same time. And now I also have 'homework'. There are just so many things to do at home. Buying furniture, buying curtains, getting a wifi, getting a gas connection, getting things repaired, finding a household help, getting the newspaper, finding a presswala, getting a locker for the newly acquired jewellery . . . the list is never-ending and BORING. 

Life has still not come into routine. And all the items in the list have not been ticked yet. So how am I treating my married life? I am taking baby steps. I am not letting it have its way. I am making sure I breathe. I am making sure that I catch up on the latest season of House of Cards. I am making sure I read books and watch plays. I am making sure I lose senses sometimes. I am making sure that when I travel for work, I also do stuff that can go on my travel blog. I am making sure I do things that make me happy.

And now I also wrote a blog post. So yay!

  1. Congratulations!

    Managing the moving out (of your paternal home) and moving in (to your marital home) and packing and unpacking is a real nightmare. Also, it can get really depressing for some of us to move out of our houses post-marriage.

    1. Hey thanks! :)

      I have moved around a lot in all these years, so packing and unpacking is something I kinda enjoy. And I had been living alone for quite sometime, so I was not quite leaving the paternal home either. Hehe.

      Great to see you here, CRD :) Thanks for dropping by.

  7. Very good that you're not letting marriage get the better of you!
    Love, and therefore marriage, is a part of life, not our whole life :-)
    but try not to wish for routine.Everything does eventually come into routine, and then comes boredom! so, enjoy this unsettled, confusing time!it's trying to teach you many things... look for it.
