Open Book

Well, Adam and I went to a fancy restaurant last night for our 6-month anniversary. It was nice to finally get to spend some time with him. I guess I really do get to spend time with him during the week, but it doesn't always feel like quality time. Either he's tired or I'm cranky or something of that nature. I suppose I'm just a work in progress. God's gotta work hard on making me a good wife :) Thank's for all the good suggestions you've given me. I'm just a novice on being someone's wife, so it's great getting real life advice from people whom I know and love. It'd also be nice for some extra prayers that I'd learn how to be encouraging and respectful and a pleasant wife to come home to. I don't always feel like I'm very pleasant. I don't want to have used up all my smiles when I'm away at work and have none left for the man I love most. That's not very encouraging or pleasant to come home to. Boy, I'm feeling like an open book for all to read. Yikes. Well, maybe I'll go wash the dishes... and besides Adam just came home from the store.

LESSON #1- Learn to say "no" to some things. As long as you are willing to do little (or big) jobs and favors for other people, they will contimue to plie up. (The jobs not the people) It took me a long time to learn how to say no to people. And it's okay too, to change your mind and decide that you have taken on too much. Save some smiles and relaxed moments for the one who you promised to love and honor.

Bethany, you are so sweet. Do you really get cranky? I don't think I've ever seen you cranky.

I can't imagine you ever being unpleasant.

I agree. Whenever I saw you you in texas you were always shy (to me cause you didn't know me) or you were hyper and upidy.
