(passing through o'hare airport)
Thank you so much for the supportive comments about our move! In the past few weeks, we grossly underestimated the stress of being unemployed newlyweds, with nothing but a Plan B...and a possible move to Kuwait looming, but not solid until a few days ago.
In that time, neither of us were sleeping well...maybe five hours a night. Gabe was stressed because he felt like a bad provider (he isn't), and I was stressed because I felt a bit helpless. And there were a fair amount of silly little squabbles. Initiated by yours truly, of course, because I'm the fighter in our relationship...and also the one with a self-ascribed B- in hypothetical marriage class. (Wink.) But now that we have job orders, we're much better.
We decided to get out of town and celebrate the new job. So, last night we hopped a midnight plane to Boston...it feels great to travel together again. Also, we finally slept like babies. Hours and hours of sleep in a cozy hotel bed. Today we're headed for a lazy morning in bed, a little sightseeing and finally a Red Sox game at Fenway.
Any must-sees while we're in Boston? We're here through Friday. Let me know! :)
