  • I've tried that............. hubby definitely loves boats and loves helping his friends - makes for a good combination......... that being said............ boat fixing time is GUY time. Always has been (all the way back to when we dated as young adults) and always will be. That is his time to just be a guy and do what guys do.............. make jokes, make fun of each other, burp - fart - and scratch themselves in places women don't appreciate seeing. I understand that. Once in a blue moon he will call and tell me he's working late and wants me to come keep him company - but for the most part 99.9% of the time - there is a friend there to fill the void.

    I guess if I get to the nitty-gritty of it - I want to be the person he wants to be with MOST. And if I really stop and think about it - I am. But he lets life and circumstances control what happens. He's just a GREAT guy that EVERYONE loves! My husband is RICH in friendships! I don't need a LOT of people in my life - I just need a FEW very special people in my life. Hubby of course is the MAIN person.

    I complain when I'm feeling a bit pushed to the side........... but all in all I'm very happy in my marriage. If I could change ONE thing about our life it would be this - I would have him be much more aggressive in making sure he and I have enough quality time together. And my "enough" I mean - enough for me to not feel neglected. That being said --- I easily feel neglected so I can hardly expect him to be able to meet my needs 100%. But, in a PERFECT marriage that is what I would ask for.

    • 16 + 16 + 16 + 23 = 71 jumps. I stopped after 16 just to make sure I wasn't pushing it to hard. I missed at 21 and stopped. 15 minutes of barre3 total body, and 15 pull downs on the bowflex. I've done 8 days of exercise without missing a day. That feels good.

      My legs are incredibly stronger. I can now climb up from the cuddy of the boat without groaning and without a handhold to assist - "look mom - no hands!" Hubby says I'm WAY WAY stronger than last summer! It sure feels good!

      I think I will move some desks and set up my "office space" today.

      Right now - breakfast. Eggs and bacon.

      • Thoughts on being a wife.

        I think I've reached the place in my life where I am looking at myself as a wife and wanting to be the kind of wife that my husband will find endearing and will have cause to cherish and adore. Over the weekend hubby said some very sweet and loving things to me - and I asked him what has changed over the past couple years that free's him to say such things now - because the prior 10 years he didn't speak to me the way he does now. His answer was short and simple: "I guess I just appreciate you more now". That got me thinking............. have I changed in some way that he see's more appreciable? or has he opened his eyes to see me in a different way?

        Either way --- I decided I want to be a wife that he is pleased with. My husband is the only person on this earth who REALLY matters when push comes to shove. His opinion is bottom line. I'm not really sure what this all translates into yet........ but the thoughts are forming.

        Just wanted to share..............

            • Another 42 jumps - totals 113 today! I think I'll rest now...........

              Group hobby? Like joining a group - I've been thinking about starting a yoga class in the fall. I'm looking into it.

              Standing date night........... suggested that years ago. We both decided that's just too set in stone.............. we're pretty much fly by the seat of our pants people. I hope I don't make it sound like we don't spend any time together............ we really do! I always have him from Saturday noon until Sunday bedtime - but its not alone time. That's my "beef" so to speak......... I want him to have the desire to have me ALL TO HIMSELF. And I want him to be aggressive about making that happen. But - we all want things we aren't going to get! I know my hubby pretty well............ he isn't an initiator........... he's a follower. If I make plans he's pretty much okay with it........... but he doesn't take the initiative to make the plans himself.

              I should stop complaining about him - he's really a very wonderful guy.

                • Oh, my! You'll be passing me up in no time.
                  Doesn't it feel great? About two weeks in is when I noticed my thighs were getting thinner.

                            Yes........... I think I will make a goal to find something to start in this fall. There is a group of women, I think they call themselves the Salem Choral (or something) - I have always wanted to audition for that group.

                            I do need something besides my p/t job and my home/husband.

                            • Honeybuns started jump roping about a month or so ago and I thought it sounded like a lot a fun - so I bought a gym quality jump rope and started doing it too. Let me tell you......... it was a tough couple weeks in the beginning getting those arms and legs coordinated again to be able to jump that rope at the precise timing!! But I think I have it down now. I'm getting pretty good at it Yesterday I did 40 consecutive jumps and stopped do to weak legs - not because I missed. Its a good SPRINTING addition to my Barre3 and weights.

                              My weight is consistently dropping daily - here is my weight for the past 7 days. 5.3 pounds gone. Must have been a lot of bloat!!

                              188.8
                              185.8
                              186.6
                              185.2
                              184.8
                              184.4
                              183.8

                              Last night we ate out. We shared a pulled pork potato skin appetizer. I had salmon with rice pilaf and a small side of veggies (yellow squash, cauliflower and broccoli). this morning I had a small tummy ache and loose stool, but not watery diarrhea. I'm thinking there may have been some HFCS in the bbq sauce on the appetizer. But I couldn't have had more than a tsp total, if that. There was very lightly drizzled over the plate - OH -- but I bet it was also in the pulled pork. I can't imagine that tiny bit of veggies would cause an issue - it was only about a cup total. I'm finding it extremely difficult to eat out an not ingest something offensive.

                              Note to self: NO BBQ sauce!!!

                              Yesterday I did pretty much nothing all day. It felt sorta good - but very lazy! Today I will do the office space that I need so I'm not working on the dining room table anymore. The I will do some deep dusting of the wood ceiling and elephants up high and tonight I will put the animals to bed early and stain the new wood trim that we had done when the new front door was installed.

                              first......... I'll get my workout done for the day.

                              • Most bbq will have HFCS - I'm willing to bet 95% will. You can always make your own and then take it with you when you go out and ask for your meats to be "naked".
