Thursday, September 15


I just thought of a reason to be thankful for yesterday.  Hubby started laundry all on his own.  I didn't have to ask him or tell me which load to do.  He just got it started all on his own!  This doesn't happen often, so I want to acknowledge the special treat. 

I'm trying not to ruin my feel good moment, but I must be honest.  I felt a little aggravation as I took the loads out of the dryer and moved more in.  Hubby was out for his weekly trivia night with a buddy and I had to finish up the laundry he started. I was dead tired, but you can't leave wet clothes sitting in the washer all night and day.  As much as I appreciated his effort when he started, I was mumbling later that if I have to do laundry, I'd much rather do it on my timetable.

The big gap

There is a huge gap in what was intended to be a daily blog.  We battled a nasty virus at our house that knocked us all out for about 2 weeks.  We are finally well, but as life typically does, things have been crazy.  We are always going and doing. 

I've been thinking about the blog and trying to pay attention to little things that I could share.  However, it just hasn't been happening lately.  The whole point of the blog was to remind myself of what I love about my husband, and why I want to stay with him.  I'm not saying I want to get divorced tomorrow, but I seem to be in one of those ruts where I just can't feel all lovey dovey. I blame part of it on the sickness.  When you feel rotten, you just try to make it from sunup to sundown without passing out. I also blame the new school year.  Hubby has a different course schedule that is taking more of his time.  Most days, he comes in from work and sits down to do lesson plans.  I am also very busy at work.  I'm not only trying to keep from falling behind, but I'm also working more for overtime pay.  Since hubby took a pay cut this year, I'm hoping some overtime pay will offset that income. By the time dinner is done, and daughter is in bed, I have maybe 1-2 hours to work before I fall asleep.  So, hubby and I are just doing our own thing and trying to get through the day. Hopefully, we can turn it around soon.

I'm going to ponder and see if I can come up with anything good abour yesterday. It's all about making the effort, right?
