We cooked our first dinner last night at the apartment. Our kitchen has lots of counter space, a six burner stove, and endless storage. It is easy for both of us to cook without getting in each others way. It is also really pretty.
We had chicken tacos with manchego cheese and avacado. It was fun to cook, and it was really fun to eat with just the two of us. We don't have a kitchen table yet, so we ate in the living room. We had just gotten cable a few hours earlier, so I'm guessing we would have eaten there even with a table.
I was hesitant to get the TV so early, but it was definitely a good idea. Its nice to be able to just relax at night on the couch and watch some TV. We've been having lots of quality family time in the evenings on the couch playing with Cholula and watching movies.
Living here is more comfortable and we are much happier. It is amazing to be alone and not have to worry about being around other people or being in someone else's house. I haven't fallen out of bed again, and Jose is sleeping more each night, so we are finally getting rested. I'm even starting to look forward to Christmas, which until yesterday I thought was about a month away. I'm going to make some eggnog to get into the holiday spirit.
I hope the holidays are going well for everyone, and that you are all looking forward to a great Christmas!
