Tanya ó Good to know you like our team picture! Although I have been on the lookout for a new one, so far I havenít found one that echoes or outshines its sentiments. Thinking I'll choose to stick with it especially now that you have used it in such a sweet way!

We switched over to the Chatting thread in December. I hope you will join us there and share what you are up to.

Thank you for letting me join your team! Hubby and I got married six months ago. Second for me, third for him. Childhood friends whose parents were close friends for 40 years.

I printed the team picture and put it in his lunch bag last week. He was quite touched by it. Always nice to have a good surprise.

It appears the rain has finally stopped here and that I will be able to take a walk outside to stretch my sore muscles today. For the past few days I have done short Jessica Smith workouts and worked some muscles that I hadn't really worked in a long time.

I took all the candy and put it in the freezer. Right now I am working on eliminating sugar and simple carbs from my diet. After watch the truth about cancer, I am truly motivated to stop eating these things.

My DH and I are Spring cleaning out home! He came home today and saw how I rearranged the furniture. So amazed he though I bought new things already. I have been researching for hours to make our nest comfy. I am going vertical. From watching Downtown Abbey and Land Girls I noticed tall hutches and cabinet bookcases. I think its because windows were open without A/C books and keepsakes need to be protected from dust. As I plan for new things I organize to decide what to keep and part with after 12 years OR longer. Major Spring clean DH has pitched in and helped! I will let the team know as new furniture arrives. I am carrying my measuring tape everywhere. Keeping busy sure helps with weight loss to emoticon

JENNBECK831, I find it difficult during this time of the year. The grey skies around here are too often and the cold weather seems to be consistent. Plus, it is so easy to over eat some times. All this can lead to frustration. So what I found that helps is going out even if it's just grocery shopping together, also inviting another couple over for dinner, having a movie night, helping out at a soup kitchen, and going to a museum. Breaking out of the everyday routine sure helps us. Even roommates need to find a way to have some fun together.

Thank you for sharing what works for you two. I am learning that the couples who take the time to be with each other, no matter they are doing, strengthen their relationships.

It sounds like you have come up with something that works very well for you both!

Good advice CJ! I agree it is not always a certain time of year for us, but it happens. We have adult children and we still have to make time for 'us' because of jobs and other responsibilities. We also pray together. It was not easy, but we have committed to pray with each other before we get out of bed. I usually get up first but he wakes up long enough to say a good morning prayer. Then at night we both kneel by the bed to pray (yep like little kids). Many times he gets up from that and goes in to do school work on-line (working on his Masters in Theology) and then I go to bed. But we made a commitment and we just make it work... like in everything else in marriage! God Bless your efforts!

That doesn't happen for us *at this time of year* - but it *does* happen. It is difficult to re-focus attention on our marriages, isn't it? I find it a struggle when it happens, but we try to make a conscious effort to re-connect, to spend time together alone, to go on mini "dates" despite all of our family and job obligations. We are both Christian, so we also do a lot of praying!

Does anyone else find marriage difficult this time of year? I have such a hard time connecting with my husband lately, and it seems to always hit right around February. I had every intention of focusing on building up our marriage this month, but then I ended up sick and injured and feel like I only was able to focus on myself. I almost feel like we're roomies with a bunch of kids thrown into the mix.

Sounds like there has been some sickness in this team. Hope everyone is feeling better soon.

Thankfully, our family has not been sick much this year. We did have colds once since the fall. Hopefully, as we start to eat more and more veggies and fruits, our immunity will go up and protect us from sicknesses.

I have not been sparking much and am starting to come around again. Life has just been stressful and Spark is one of the first things to go when I'm very stressed, so it's a good sign that I'm back. I think it means I'm feeling less stressed.

Love,

Helen

Hopefully you are feeling better IAM_HIS!

I spent the week/weekend with influenza (this year's bug is AWFUL!) Hubs was out of town. Older sis (Very sick with Lupus) took care of me all weekend until he was able to get home.

Seems he is always out of town when it's a BAD time, lol. Ugh!

Today I am still not well. When I am sick I get very sensitive and start crying at the drop of a hat. Well, a sensitive wife is someone my spouse does not like to be around. To him, been sensitive is being a wimp.

I had to do a lot of praying today. Especially because right now. So I did some reading:

1 Corinthians 13:4-8New International Version (NIV)

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

Yes, Love never fails...So it took me to this:

Act from a heart of love. When your actions are drawn from a heart of love, love will be the overriding aspect experience in your marriage.

Forgive quickly. The act of forgiveness allows your heart to begin healing. Sometimes I hold on to my feelings of anger too long. This is definitely something I need God's help with.

I got finished all my shopping today. *phew* that's the latest I've done it, I think!

Decorating isn't done yet, but hopefully tonight. However, I got more prepared for my trip this weekend, so it's all good.

And I even cleaned my stove (it was really bad), to reduce the risk of a fire in it while my kids are home alone when my dh and I are on holiday!

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

MYAKAYAH, so happy that you posted. Thank you.

Well so far I have made 19 dozen of Christmas cookies and will be making another 10 or more dozen today and some fudge too. Tomorrow I will make my pierogis for Christmas Eve. I need to buy one more gift then I am done with shopping.

Yesterday I put up our Christmas tree and decorated it. Our tree looks so nice this year. During this Christmas Season I will be making some more Christmas ornaments. I'd like to make a pine cone wreath for my front door.

I need to get my Christmas cards out, so I will be doing that this morning.

Hi everyone especially Sharon, Helen and Angel!

I usually don't post in my groups stopping in for a visit, general discussion forums since I feel like I don't have much to say. I think my brain processes it as small talk that I am not good with. I know its quite silly since I write messages on other topics!

I'll have to look up Welsh Cookies to see what they are but I am not much of a cookie baker, don't have the patience for cookies. I have made bourbon balls, cupcakes and a cake recently. I don't bake much even with 2 children hanging about. I learned to bake before I could cook though. I prefer cooking much more. I don't have a sweet tooth.

Good luck with the painting and baking Sharon! Glad you are feeling better from your recent tooth issue. Good luck with cleaning houses and the control freak was not a great experience so be glad you only dealt with him once.

I have finished with baking and buying gifts, wrapping, sending out Christmas cards and all of that. Basically just cooking every night for supper and doing everyday regular cleaning tasks is fine. Not quite sure what is for Christmas dinner yet but nothing like Thanksgiving.

My sister and brother may be here or they may not but my cousin and her family will be here a few days after Christmas. The SO is looking forward to having an empty house through this year because last year we hosted everyone for holidays and it was a lot to deal with honestly. A lot of stress when there are many children around, its fun but its still a lot to handle when you are trying to work and handle life!

Happy week~.

My real name is Sharon, Helen Christine.

I do understand what you mean about Flylady....that is why I like to plan my own cleaning routine. There is always one day off.

I am His, what is your first name, if you don't mind my asking? I feel funny calling you that. Well, great job on doing your best with the cleaning. Sorry they were sneaky with you... You have a great positive attitude.

It is hard dealing with dementia, Linda, and my heart goes out to you.

Elayne, I try to follow the flylady too, but I never stick to it for more than a month at a time... I always seem to peeter out.

Love,

Helen
