It ain't all kisses and sunshine. Marriage is hard work, even in the beginning.
This morning, Carrie Underwood stopped by Ellen DeGeneres' show to chat for a bit and she brought Ellen up to speed on her first week of marriage. She admitted that being married has it's "own wonderfulness and challenges," and then jumped right into what those challenges are for her and her hubby, Mike Fisher.
Like most, the transition from separate living spaces to a communal one hasn't been easy for Carrie and Mike. Carrie admitted that he has a lot of stuff - she even at one point called him sort of a "hoarder!" So, when he initially moved his "crap" into her Nashville house, there were some disagreements about which stuff would stay and which stuff would go. She explained:
"We had it in all the guests bedrooms and he had it boxed up and stuff. He's like babe, I need more space in the closet and my heart just sinks. He'll keep like shirts and stuff and I'll go through it…He loves to shop. He's going to kill me. He has stuff come in and I'm like it's not going out fast enough. If you bring stuff in and stuff needs to go out. Do we need this shirt? It has a giant stain on the sleeve. Are we going to wear this again? No, then do something with it. It's still hanging up there."
Boys will be boys, no matter how old they get!
Thankfully, Carrie added that she and Mike have learned to compromise on some things and this new understanding has helped them to live a more blissful existence.
Well, that's good. Oh, and can we just suggest something real quick, in case this becomes an issue again? Man cave! Perhaps with an attached garage! That'll keep his crap contained!
