September Marriage Goals Update

At the beginning of September, I linked up for the first time with Amberly to talk about monthly marriage goals.

A lot has happened since that post two weeks ago. I went 'home' for a week to work in the office. I got home late [or should I say early?] Friday night [Saturday morning] and had a pretty busy weekend too. I really haven't had much opportunity to work on my goal for this month...

My main goal for the month of September was to change my attitude and stop taking my frustration out on my husband, the innocent bystander. Like I said, I traveled last week so I was a tad stressed getting ready to go and anticipating a week away from home. I think I handled it better than I would have if I didn't have this goal in mind. 
I also have another goal to add this month. I am going to spend less time on my phone and laptop when Pearson is home and spend that time with him. One specific incident that brought me to this goal happened on Saturday, after I got back. I was standing in the bedroom glued to my phone [reading a blog post, no less] and Pearson was trying to tell me a story. Finally, he gave up [and I don't blame him], said "I'm sorry" and walked away. HE apologized to ME for bothering me while I was reading something on my phone!!! Well, I felt pretty bad. Wouldn't you? I just got home the night before from a week away from him and I can't even spare a couple minutes to hear his story without my attention being elsewhere? Ridiculous! So, from now on, when I am with Pearson, I am going to be with Pearson, not with my phone, laptop, or anything else.

Thanks for reading!
