You would be amazed at how having a broken finger de-motivates you to type anything.
So, I’ve been working on this clean house thing. I tried a suggestion from one of my friends, and I’ve made cleaning the house, doing laundry, etc… my “job” on Saturdays. Starting at noon, I begin cleaning the kitchen, doing dishes, and then spread out to the rest of the house. To my wonderful benefit, if I’m cleaning, Brock will always pitch in and help. It has worked very well the past two weekends in a row – I’m sitting in a very clean house!
We also didn’t get anything real or substantial done today. We didn’t go to church – the first time we’ve missed since January 1st. Soccer was canceled due to rain. Thanks to that rain, we didn’t have a chance to go do anything fun and out-doorsy, like spending time at the lake. Instead, we watched about 6 episodes of Stargate SG-1. I feel like I wasted the day, but on the other hand, I also feel incredibly relaxed and that’s wonderful.
Brock’s birthday is tomorrow. We are in such a money crunch, he constantly tells me not to get him anything. I know there are tons of things that I could to that would be special for him that don’t involve purchasing anything… somehow I’m just not that creative. He said, yesterday, that for his birthday he’d like me to be “nice to him all day.” Ouch. I hope he was just kidding, but I know that behind every joke is a grain of truth. I think I’ll get up early, make him breakfast, and honestly just be super nice to him all day. Let him decide what he wants to do, when and how. Make him feel special, wonderful, and loved. AND hope he doesn’t read this before then. (The downside of having a public blog site!)
Um… we’re getting married in 69 days. So soon I can almost feel it!
