Trying to simmer down now.

What do you wish you had done just before you moved in with your SO? Pretty SFW.

Super awesome boyfriend and I are about to combine households. We're in love, on the same page with regard to bills, cleaning, and nudiefuntimes, and really laid back about each other's quirks. We have a great home lined up, are in agreement about what gets chucked, what comes with, and who buys what. We are beautifully compatible and really looking forward to finally seeing each other every day and taking a really big step in our Life together.
So why am I a simmering teapot of anxiety? I quit smoking years ago, but I want to sit around chain-smoking. We're each A-OK with the other's nocturnal activities, but I feel like watching my favorite porn...or at least feel like I should want to watch my favorite porn while I can, even though I know he isn't going to take it away. And even though it was never going to happen anyway, suddenly I'm thinking about how I will never get the chance to throw myself at Channing Tatum or whoever, even though I don't actually want to throw myself at anyone else.
Is this normal? Did you go through a pre-cohabitation phase of intense, bizarre single behavior? What do you wish you had done? Once you'd moved in, did the urges subside? What am I missing? Advice, cohabitation hacks, stories appreciated.
