Day 4

This is day four of getting dressed first thing in the morning. My hope is next week to add in doing something with my face/hair. It is easy to get into "frump" mode when being a stay at home Mom. No one cares what I look like anyway, right? Well, not according to God's plan for my marriage.

When I was reading last night it occurred to me that I tend to get upset with Chris because he does not act like he did when we were dating, when I fell in love with him. However, I was just brought tot he realization that I don't either. Gone are the days when I always wanted to look my best for him, the days when I was amused by the little things, so on. One thing that really made me think is that we are probably the exact same people we were then. The things we looked past because of being in that cloud of new romance are the things that annoy us today. Things such as his pessimism or me being so talkative. If we truly love one another, shouldn't we just accept that these things have been there all along and learn once again to blissfully look past them? After all, they ARE part of the person we fell in love with.

Back to the original point. My goal is to try to prepare myself to look nicer for my husband. I mean, it is the least I can do, right?

If I want him to regain the same attitude towards me that he had when we were first together, I need to regain that same attitude towards him. :D


  1. Hi! I found you on the Fly Friends board (misty's). WTG on your habit! That's next month's habit btw!

    A few of us in the group are doing this "course" I think you may find it interesting. There's a yahoo group and everything.

    I'm Christi on the group if you want more info, or would like to discuss it with anyone.

  2. I see from the other comment that you're onto FLY lady. That website helped me as a stay-at-home mom and a home school mom to turn around my depressed life of being discontent with the house and myself! Those baby steps really work! Sounds like you're on your way - keep it up! Linda - p.s. - I should say that exercise is my current challenge- haven't got that one in the daily routine yet...still working on it!


I *love* getting feedback and comments. I will publish links to other blogs, just as long as they are not derogatory to a belief I hold in high esteem. I will post comments that disagree with my stance, as long as they are respectfully written. Most importantly, I will do my best to reply to all of my comments. Thank you for taking the time to read my blog.
