Puppy blues are definitely normal, in fact there is a sticky on the subject on the puppy help page!
I too was very naive when we got my dog. I had never had a dog before, and didn't know how much they needed to be trained, let out, etc. Things got easier as we all established a routine and the puppy became more trained, was housebroken, etc.
Things are much better now, 2 years later. Having a routine and sticking to it as much as possible is very helpful...your life is changing, their life is changing, so creating a routine and adhering to it will help both of you.
