As of right now, we still have four months until his move to Taiwan. This is very exciting because it means that our remaining time with one another in person, isn’t over just yet. There are however many things that have to be discussed and planned. These things are a little less exciting to say the least.
Many of you with long term partners will know that over the course of many years, you each begin to acquire things. Whether or not those things are purchases you’ve made together or just items your family or friends happened to be getting rid of, collecting household items and building up your home together is an amazing feeling. However, if and when the pair of you are no longer going to be in the same location (regardless if you plan to stay together or not), there are a few things that need to be considered. I know first hand that no one wants to enter into a long distance relationship with the notions that at some point, things just might not work out the way you planned. I also know that NO ONE, wants to plan on getting rid of or returning items you’ve each come to love.This my friends, is where practicality come in to play. For example, lets say your partners mother has given you both bar stools for your new place. What happens when one of you moves across country? Does she wish for those bar stools back since there is a possibility (however slight) that you wont stay together? So now you see what I meant by ‘less exciting’.
I have started making an inventory of our household items. Included in this list is how we have come by each item. Once I have completed the list, we will go over it and decide which items will stay in my care and which items will need to find another place to belong. Needless to say, I will definitely need to rethink how the apartment is decorated after this. I’m thinking I may invest heavily in some wall art. 🙂
Thank you for reading my blog and staying tuned for new posts. As we get nearer to March, I will begin posting more regularly.
