The Boyfriend and Leanne have their challenges ahead of them. He is used to living alone and no-one touches his belongings. He is a creature of habit and convenience for himself. The clean dishes stay in the dish drainer. It saves him time I get that. Also, his entry table is his stuff right where he wants it when he’s going out the door. What fun they have ahead of them! Leanne must be a neat freak like so many females. Ladies like to clean and also LOVE LOVE to decorate. Get ready for some surprises, Boyfriend. Sunday afternoons fill with browsing in stores looking for more pretty stuff. Yay! She will say the walking is just a great way to get exercise, especially on a rainy day. That’s (shopping and decorating) what we ladies all love.

So this is a big deal. 4:56 Leanne is moving into The Boyfriend’s place. The Boyfriend is wondering why she does the thing she does. He’s finding he has to let go of some of his control, and at the same time, there are some things he doesn’t want changed or moved. Leanne is thinking she’s just moving her belongings in.
