My Sweet Husband!

Have I mentioned how great my husband is? I just have to brag on him a little more...

Yesterday morning, I had an emotional breakdown. I was getting ready for work, and I just became hysterical. I vented to Kyle...saying, "I just can't do everything. I can't get it all done! There is not enough time in the day for me to work a full-time job, commute 45 minutes each way, blog, keep God and family my #1 priority, keep the house tidy, get the laundry done, cook, clean, workout and stay healthy, the list goes on...and that's just what I have to do. There are a million other things on the To-Do-List, not to mention the things I might enjoy doing - such as relaxing every now and then..."

You get the picture...

I went to work, and came home...to yet another transformed home. Yep - he cleaned the whole house again! Dishes, vacuuming, laundry, and all. He did ten loads of laundry, people!

I am so thankful. I couldn't keep this blog going without his love and support...

You've probably guessed what my dominant love language is by now - yep, acts of service.

What About You: How do you prioritize and balance your time, to keep from going crazy? Any suggestions or hints?

So sweet of your husband! It's so wonderful when they go out of their way to take care of things so we can just relax. I'm sure glad you were able to! :-)

Thats AWESOME! Please tell him how much WE appreciate him too!!! You & him are BOTH helping so many people! My husband is deployed and I have a 3 and 5 year old...extra time is so hard to come by and honestly without your blog and all your leg work, I wouldnt be able to get the savings I am! I am slowly being able to match a few things up on my own, but I live for your weekly store matchups!

Oh, and for me to take a little edge off I enjoy a glass of sweet Moscato wine...which I will enjoy for free when I use my Knox coupons this week...

btw...did you get any? I have 60 which is a little ambitious since my store only has about 5 boxes in stock...even if they restock evey week I doubt I'll use them all by the March 9th expiration, so if youd like some please let me know...its the least I can do!!!!

Sarah~ That'd be awesome, because I didn't receive any!!! =) =) =)

My store keeps lots of gelatin in stock. A while back, there was a printable Knox coupon. I went in there one week and they were out. I went back the next day, and they had like 50 of them!

Good luck! Shoot me an e-mail, and I'll send you my address for you to send me a couple. Thank you sooooo much!

BIG brownie points for him! I have a hard time doing it all too. But we both just pitch in and eventually it gets done.

I feel your pain! I am definitely skimping on my blogging for that exact reason! Over the holidays I abandoned my blog (I know! Such a taboo!!), but with taking classes, working, being a newlywed and taking care of our home, I simply haven't enough time to do everything. Something had to give, and for me, it was blogging! My husband helps out so much with the cleaning and housework, so I know how truly amazing it is to have a partner in the home, not just a body! Apparently you can do it all, and for that we are all oh so thankful. Thanks so much for sticking it out for us! :)
