1. I’m trying to help my husband lose weight. We have lots of junk food left over from the super bowl. My solution? Eat it before he gets to it. I feel gross.
2. Why doesn’t the Catholic Church have a better official website? I mean, yeah, the Vatican has one, but it’s not that awesome. Compare the Vatican’s and the LDS Church’s websites. Why can’t the Catholic Church have one with smiling faces and maybe a link that says “Who was Jesus?” or “What is Catholicism?” Can we get some web designers on this?
3. Friday was a hard day for me. I was in so much pain from my IC that I thought I was going to pass out in class/go to the hospital. I finally got out of the 3 hr seminar, called my husband to ask if he could take me to the hospital, but finally ol’ betty-the-bladder relented and let me go to the bathroom. (Part of the problem with IC is you feel like you have to go constantly, which can make actually going a problem.) So, needless to say, we did not go out to First Fridays (an open-art-gallery deal downtown) and also did not go the gym like we had planned. We sat on the couch and watched TV all night. Some days, I just hate being 24 and feeling like I’m already done with my carefree existence.
4. Anyone still reading after I talked about my bladder? Impressive.
One really nice thing is that after Friday, I’ve felt a lot better overall. I’m still dropping down my course load cause I realized last week that having a bad week and lots to do just doesn’t mix. But the last few days have been good, and I’ll take that.
5. I’m gonna do a bunch of posts about my wedding, but not all in a row. I have some other things I want to talk about. So stay tuned!
6. I’m really grateful for my husband. Last week we spent a while talking about my need for quality time in our marriage. One difference between our families of origin is how we do dinner . We both came from families that always ate together, but how we did that differed. My family, my mom did most of the cooking by herself, and then we sat around for an hour or two after dinner and shot the breeze. His family, the preparation of the meal was the communal part, and the dinner was just for eating. Then dishes were done ASAP to make sure they didn’t miss the first part of the Utah Jazz game!
I realized that it was driving me crazy that my husband would get up and start washing dishes or turned on the TV while I was still eating. He eats much quicker than I do, so it was becoming a regular occurrence. But after I told him that I would appreciate if he stayed sitting down throughout the meal, and maybe a few minutes afterwards. And he has! It’s great to know that he listens and will take action. I decided I should probably incorporate him more into the prep part of dinner too, instead of just saying I don’t need help.
7. My husband’s cousin is getting baptized on Saturday, and he’s the Godfather! I keep telling him that makes me the Godmother-in-law. Is that how it works?
