My wife had surgery on her Achilles tendon and for the last few weeks plus a few to come, I’ve had to practically be her servant. It’s shown me there is a lot of humility that goes along with being a husband and father when your better half is unable to do much moving and I have to say that while it has been a challenge, I’m glad that I get to be the one to care for her.
Also, there is the bit of information that we have decided to attempt to go to Disney World every single year. Maybe we’ll tire of it eventually and maybe not, but that’s the plan right now. I’ve calculated that to achieve our plan for a trip in February of 2018, we’ll need to put away around $100 per week, so instead of taking it out of the regular budget, I’ve decided that the majority of that money will be earned by way of extra activities such as selling prints of my art, commissioning original works, and doing arts and crafts shows on the weekends.
And I’ve included some original music in the episode that I hope you’ll enjoy.
Stuff To Do Review:
This week's question to ponder:
What would you seriously like to be doing 5 years from now?
Marriage has its good times and its bad. It's called living life. I have over two decades of marriage experience to share and I know first hand what it's like to be in a marriage rut. There are pitfalls, but the good news is I have some advice on how to avoid them. And the better news is ... if you've already fallen into one or more of them, you can always climb out.
Pitfalls to avoid:
Avoid being lazy (Appearance, Attitude, Home Ethic)
Avoid getting bored
Avoid getting complacent
Avoid getting selfish
How to avoid the pitfalls:
Get physical in a non-sexual way (Loving touches, hugs, kisses, holding hands)
Get back to dating (Set a night you never miss if possible)
