Last month I set the goal to be a cheerful wife and I think I succeeded. Maybe you should ask Pearson to make sure, but from my perspective, I think I kept a positive attitude and wasn't all that worried and stressed considering how crazy busy and nervous I was.
Since I feel like I haven't seen my husband in over a month, or at least I haven't got to spend much time with him, I'm really missing that quality time. And I'm sure he is too. Quality time is toward the top of both of our love language lists, as I learned at the beginning of this year.
So this month, I want to get back to those basics. I'm setting a goal to go on one out-of-the-house date night per week. This should be possible even when I'm traveling because I'll be home on Friday and then I'll only be gone Friday, Saturday, and Sunday the next weekend.
I also want to put my phone away in the evenings (and maybe I'll get Pearson to do this too). I am on my phone way too much. It's ridiculous. And it's so difficult to put it away, so I'm putting strict restrictions on it. By the time Pearson gets home from work, my phone will be in the other room where I can hear it if someone calls - in case of emergency - but I'm not tempted to look at it every few seconds or mindlessly scroll through social media.
I am so excited to get back to a somewhat normal life that I don't even care that it's already August and there are only 5 months left of 2015!!! Ok, I care a little bit... How crazy is that? Anyway, I hope you're all doing well on your relationship goals even if you've had a busy summer like me! Be sure to link up below! Thanks for reading!
