Marriage Builder Monday




So, in case you couldn't tell, I'm a huge fan of this marriage building stuff. Sarah at Burgeon came up with the idea of Marriage Builder Monday. Every Monday, I will post something that I will do for my husband throughout the week to make sure he knows that I recognize how hard he works and that I appreciate him. If you think that this is all about him, ladies, guess what! Almost always he'll feel so good about the effort you put in to making him feel good, that he'll return the favor two fold. No kidding. I've tested this theory, and it works a HELL of a lot better than bitching and moaning does. (I've tested that one, too.)



This week, I am going to try and hang out with the Hubs in the basement. The basement, or "man cave" is where my darling husband prefers to spend his time. I told him not too long ago that I hate going down there because I feel like it's his territory and that I don't have a place down there. He felt really bad about that, but I still haven't really spent time down there. Even if I just sit there and read my book and basically ignore him, he's happy that I'm sharing "his space" willingly. So, this week, I will make an effort to spend time down there when he's down there. It's a small step, but I know it will be appreciated.



Also, I'm kinda html illiterate. If someone can tell me how in the world I can make the little icon on the top of this page link to Sarah's blog, I will be a HAPPY HAPPY lady!

This is a good idea; I wanted to leave you two resources that I thought might help you. First, Marriage Hacks is a blog that gives great tips about helping each of you to grow in your marriage. Second, I've found Blogging Basics 101 to be a helpful site for learning how to do HTML stuff, including learning how to make buttons.

You are going to have one happy hubby! My husband also has a,"man cave," that I rarely venture inside of! I'm sure he will be thrilled to have your company and maybe as you spend more time there he will add a little something for you in there! Thanks so much for participating...I'll look forward to seeing you again next week!

What a nice idea...if I can get myself to be better at posting regularly, I might consider joining this!
MarriageHacks is awesome, and they are relaunching soon, so it should be even more awesome then.

So I went ahead and got myself going on my own blog. You can come and look at mine if you like.
