Our time in our married hometown is winding down quickly. We are (hopefully!) heading to the Oregon Coast with my folks for a camping trip as I mentioned before. Daniel is on the mend from a case of shingles too. He's also been working long hours on the house projects (our rental... that has renters in it:) or at least as long as he can without stretching our (good so far) renters' patience to the max!
I've been thinking and praying of ways I can be a better helper to my husband in this area because if there is a house project skill, I don't have it:). Especially since its looking like we'll miss at least part of the camping trip because the projects aren't going quite as quickly as planned.
Last night I dreamt that I offered to help Daniel chip the ginormous pile of branches. In the morning it felt so real but I thought it would be silly and I couldn't be of help. I casually asked Daniel if that would be helpful and he said YES! He rented a truck and a chipper for a half day and I found a babysitter for an hour and a half and helped chip through a pile of branches and debris for almost an hour..what a workout! And it was kinda fun, actually.
I am so thankful to have a chance to help in a way that was outside my comfort zone, but ended up being a good time with the hubby. Although you definitely don't want to think about that movie Fargo when using it...;)
