I took a suggestion from Rachel Anne at Home Sanctuary, and now I’m not so relaxed any more. It’s not her fault; I just let the time get away from me.
I work at home, so I’m often at the computer doing “real work” for more hours than I mark on my timesheet. That’s a good thing for the company, but my own sanity suffers at times.
This afternoon after I finished up my work hours, I turned on the music and updated the posts on my blog to get some better organization – all in an attempt to destress. Now, however, I’m running late to get ready for the football game. Fortunately, football games don’t take a lot of time to get ready for. Put on a pair of jeans, grab a jacket, and off we go.
Isn’t that how it goes? We get so engrossed in the tasks before us that we forget to look at the road ahead. I think that happens in marriage, too. We focus on the things that need done now, right now, and forget to truly enjoy the benefit of it.
I don’t have a good wrap up for this post because I really have to get to the ball game, but maybe you can give it some thought and leave a comment on how life -even the fun parts of it – sometimes gets in the way of your marriage.
Yours for the celebration of marriage,
