I am very tired. Yesterday afternoon and evening I wanted just to lay down. Not sure why either. And of course Lexi got up like 4 times last night. She must be having trouble getting those molars in. I noticed the other day that they are all breaking through. Emma is sleeping late this morning. Yesterday I had to try to wake her up like 3 times to go to school. I wish I could have let her sleep because I know she needs it.
We watched Walk the Line this weekend and it was so good. I love Reese Witherspoon. And there was something romantic and desperate and noble about their story all at once. I watched it a second time yesterday morning. We also watched Elizabethtown. It was kind of weird, especially about 3/4 the way through and it was nothing but a self-discovery road trip. There was definitely good stuff about the movie but I don’t expect to be watching that one more than once.
So the guy who wants to buy our Jeep has not made it to the bank yet so we still have it. He says not to sell it though and we don’t have any other offers so we’re just hanging on until he gets it.
I finally got that book Created to be his Help Meet. It is a TOUGH read. Not hard to read, just very straight to the point about what the Bible expects and if you don’t follow it what can happen. It’s a pretty big eye-opener. Most of our society would laugh it’s way through the book. It is pretty conservative. But I can’t imagine your marriage being bad if a woman was to actually follow what it suggests.
One chapter I read was quite interesting. It talked about 3 types of men. All men are a little of each type but are dominant in one. When I read the first one, I knew immediately it was Scott’s type without even reading another word. I laughed through most of it and even read it back to Scott and then he grinned through it because it described him so well. The 3 were Mr. Command, Mr. Visionary and Mr. Steady. You wanna guess which one my police officer husband is? Yeah, Mr. Command. He is a born leader, always giving orders out whether someone wants them or not. He expects compliance, he expects to be served. He wants to know where you are, what you’re doing and does not want you doing anything that would take away from that. ie, go shopping on Saturday with D because it would take away time from him. Yes, that is my Scott. Mr. Command. I love him for it because I’m Mrs. Indecisive but yes, sometimes it makes you crazy. So that was interesting to read to see how I should react to that. The other ones were also interesting to read as well because Scott does have some other of the ones in him and it also brought to mind other men I know and it is funny to see how those personality traits come out in the husband and in how the wife reacts. This book is worth it just for that chapter.
I missed Grey’s Anatomy this week. And they haven’t put a podcast out either. Which is a bummer. I need SOMETHING to keep me going until Sunday. And Bachelor is off so I didn’t have anything to watch last night either. Thank goodness AI is several times a week :).
I have got to make it to the gym tonight. Last night I was just too tired but I really need to go. I’ve gained back a few pounds because I have been eating like CRAP and only going to the gym twice a week the past few weeks. Maybe I’m so tired because I haven’t been exercising. Probably.
