2017 Relationship Goals

Aaron and I have been together for 13 years this upcoming May and married for 9 in September.  I'm always so amazed by the generous and kind man I've married, that I could find someone who matches me so well at just 15 years old.  He's the perfect yin to my yang: I tend to be practical, stern and goal-driven, if not a bit selfish, while he's relaxed, fun-loving and totally selfless.  He's put up with a lot of crap from me over the years yet we've always come out on top.  It's always hard for me to create relationship goals because, honestly, I'm really happy with the man I married.

Here's the chart:

If I could have, I would have put this at 100%.  I'm extremely happy with our marriage, but I never want to become complacent.  There's always something we could do here.

There's really only one major goal I want to work on this year.

Waking Up Early Together

The way mine and Aaron's life works, we don't always have a lot of time for each other.  He starts work at 7:30 in the morning, which means he has to be out the door by 7.  However, he's utterly terrible at getting up at a decent time.  In the eight years we've been married, mornings are almost always a panic situation for him.  He routinely oversleeps multiple alarms and usually has to bust out of here without so much as even a shower.

In the meantime, I work evenings and weekends - when he's usually home and available.  I usually sleep in because it doesn't really matter what time I get up as long as I get in touch with agencies and schedule things accordingly.  However, Aaron and I could get more time together if I changed that.  Plus, if I'm awake at a decent time in the morning, I can pester him out of bed so he's not running for it.  He might be able to snooze and alarm but I don't have a snooze button.  Good luck with that.

Getting up together could create a huge improvement in our relationship.  No longer would be be stressed in the morning, which often sets the mood for the day with him.  We could eat breakfast together, starting our day off right with a little bit of nutrition, and spend the morning discussing our daily goals.

Both of us have agreed that this is something we want to do together.  We've purchased planners that involve creating daily goals specifically for this.  This isn't something that I've decided to do without him; we're both in for it.
