This Lacks Excitement
I tried to be more positive with Days 25, 26 and 27 of the 30 Day Marriage Challenge but I can’t help but still feel bored with these tasks. At least they’re are a bit more interactive.
Ask your husband’s opinion on something.
Sure I ask for my husband’s opinion, but it’s supposed to be the same as mine.
Kidding! (Not kidding.)
I had a simple question this Saturday – “What do you want to do with the kids today?” And I went along with his suggestion, no arguments. It’s actually nice to not be a planner/coordinator once in awhile.
Encourage your husband.
I’m leaving in a few days and will be gone for a week. So today I gave him a run-down of the kids’ daily schedule, which is different every single day. And I encouraged him that he will be a great substitute mom. But honestly, good luck!
Do something for his health – ie. eat better and exercise together.
One of our biggest struggles is deciding what to eat and the worst part is that neither of us cooks. He usually ends up ordering Chinese take-out for himself, while the kids and I survive on whatever I whip up. Tonight, I told him to pick any baked chicken recipe he wants me to attempt and I cooked for him. That alone is already a healthier option than fried chicken with white rice.
I’m bummed that I’m looking forward to this challenge to be over. I was really excited to do a Marriage challenge and my excitement has waned with each passing day. On the bright side, great things are going on here at home that we don’t really need these tasks to test our marriage’s strength.
