I hope you don’t mind, but this month I’m going to be writing about, focusing on, and probably posting more pics of my husband… it’s February, the month of love, and I’m starting The Husband Project (wanna join me?).
JUST 30 MINUTES
The first day’s project is to give him 30 minutes of time to himself when he gets home from work. So, since my husband works at home, I didn’t have to do it!
Just kidding. I realize that even though we both work at home, that means there is even less time for my husband to decompress and go from super-fantastic video producer to dad and husband. He’s got about 30 seconds, the time it takes to walk upstairs from office to home, instead of 30 minutes.
DAY OF REST
Today was a bit different since we started using Monday as our day of rest instead of Sunday. It’s a bit unconventional, but I’m loving it! Anyway, instead of him needing time to decompress from work, I knew he really wanted to finish the movie he started watching earlier in the day (Hurt Locker). So when I heard our son asking Daddy to play, I called the little one into our room and kept him occupied for over an hour so Dad could finish the movie.
Since he was so focused on the movie, I’m not even sure my husband noticed or knew that I intentionally did that. But I know and as Kathi Lipp says in her book, that’s what matters. It’s about me intentionally making choices that celebrate and nurture him. Mission accomplished!
5 DAY HUSBAND PROJECT BLOGGER CHALLENGE
For my image today, I just grabbed a quick shot of a small section of a collage I created for our wedding. One thing I’d like to plan over the course of this project is helping him to return to some of the things that he loves most… including dancing!
If you’re up for taking the challenge with me, or even just seeing what some of the other projects are, you can read the 5 Day Husband Project Blogger Challenge. I’ve got a couple of Kathi’s books to give away throughout the project too, so hop on in and let’s celebrate the men who make our lives (and us) so much better than they would be without them!
P.S. If you’re wondering about the number of ways I love my husband, here’s a key…
- 163 = number of emails we sent to each other before we met in person
- 2741 = number of days we’d been married at the time I posted
- 2 = number of kids we have
- 5 = number of times we’ve moved since being married
- 61 = number of love letters from him that I keep on my dresser
