Last night at the dinner table my husband was doing or saying something that he thought was funny. I rolled my eyes and asked him if that was the kind of talk he used on our first date. I remember thinking he was so funny. I asked him if his sense of humor changed or mine.
Things have been tense lately. I almost hesitate to write tense. Less than tense really. We have a great marriage and friendship...
I stopped writing here because I knew if I kept writing everyone would just tell us to go on a date. Yes, we do need to go on a date. But I don't think having someone watch Chase and going on a date is the only solution. There has to be a way to get that spark back when a babysitter isn't available. Then God whispered that I should look at things I've pinned on pinterest in regards to dates at home.
The first post I read was this.
The second post I read was 25 ways to communicate respect. 1. Choose joy is something I definitely need to do. Some days it feels like I've been in a bad mood since Chase was born. 2. Honor his wishes is another one I need to do! I struggle with doing things around the house because Hubby likes them done or because I like them done. It is difficult to be the one that is home a lot more than your other half. The division of labor is a struggle in a lot of marriages I think. Seeing someone else give the advice to honor my husband's wishes makes it not seem like such a bad thing.
Are you still with me? Do you agree with these posts? I know so many people give Alexis on the Real Housewives of Orange County a hard time for not traveling without her husband, but I relate to her. I spend a lot of time with my husband. We rarely are apart.
I'm so excited for Hubby to get home today so I can start communicating respect!
