7 days a week

The poor hubby is work 7 days a week. 6 - 10 hour days and 8 hours on Sunday. He's exhausted and still has at least 3 more weeks of this to go. But we do like the extra cash ;)

However, it puts a wrench into going to church. We've been struggling for a while with deciding what to do about church. We've been going off and on to the church that he kinda grew up in and his mom goes to it as well. But we really decided that it's not for us. So we were going to start to try to find a new church and then all this overtime started in. So, I haven't been going since he's working. Lame excuse, but I know he doesn't want me going to look for a new church without him.

So I'm improvising.

Last night my eye caught a book on my shelf The Purpose Driven Life. I started it a long time ago and never finished it. So, I'm starting over and using that as my devotional time. I'll probably do it a few times a week (I hope) and most importantly on Sundays.

Today's question at the end was, "In spite of all the advertising around me, how can I remind myself that life is really about living for God, not myself?"

This week, I'm going to try to keep that in the back of my mind.

A Lovey-Dovey Post

We're almost at the 3 and a 1/2 month mark!

When we got married, it was in a flash and things weren't exactly in place. We both still had roommates and it took a while for "the two to become one".

I'm not sure if it's that we are finally settling into a nice routine and married life is setting in; but falling in love with your husband more and more every day is the best thing!

I am blessed to have an amazing husband!

(Note to self: read this when Brian does something that makes you mad) lol.

You have to remind yourself sometimes that your husband is  boy. Men, at times, are very different from women. Well, more then "at times".

Brian doesn't indulge in things he wants very often, but when he really wants something, I try my best to get it for him.

This past thing was a remote control helicopter.

So, we went on the trip to Best Buy, after much research on his part, of course. We make a loop around the store. No helicopter in sight. We are mid-loop for the 2nd time when I ask if he wants some help. Of course, him being a man, he says no. So, I do it.

We never would have found it. It was up by the registers. Needless to say, he got his toy.

I'm not sure I love the helicopter so much. But it only last 7 minutes. Then he needs to power up again.

I guess 7 minutes of interrupting my tv show isn't so bad for a bit of enjoyment for him.

He deserves it.
