Neither of us has had a space that is just our own since we left home a little more than 8 years ago. We're both pretty excited about it, and I don't know why we didn't think about it sooner. It probably didn't even enter our minds because that's just Not The Thing Married Couples Do. I'm really glad that Kit and I can do things our own way and not feel constrained by how everyone else does things. I really am lucky to have a wife like her, and, I think this is the first time I've admitted it (even though Kit's said it many times), she really is lucky to have a husband like me. We really have learned to support each other and allow each other to be who we want to be. It hasn't always been easy, but that's what makes it worth it.
I could sit here all day writing, but I really should do some work. You know, I really do need something like a month or two off, so that I can do some serious writing and do crosswords and pick up the recorder again and read all the books I want to read. Okay, maybe more like 6 months. But, since that's not likely to happen in the near future, I guess I'll have to try to make time to do those things.
