his buns...lol. Times have been rather stressful lately to say the least. I'm sure the majority of it stems from the pressures of work. We had a long talk yesterday, actually several of them. One was when I told him I was sure that for as long as he kept his priorities the way they were, I was sure he would have no success anywhere. If he got back on track, he wouldn't be able to believe the success he would have. Followed hours later where we discussed the marriage topic. I always love this one best. This is the one where we establish that we have different intrests, we got together young, we just aren't on the same page, things are stale, we never have relations...you know, arguement 293. I told him I was just not going to guilt him into loving me.... I just finally said that he needs to sort it out. We haven't been fighting really. It's just boring. Between his hours, stress at work, and that garbage it makes for mr. misery.

Today, he decided to hit a job fair at a local place similar to where he works. The regional mgr was there and told him that his bosses would love a guy like him. He could get straight in as a district mgr making 10-20 more a yr base! Then I applied online for a regional mgr position making $80,000 to start. After he came home he told me how he had prayed and that God told him He would make a way. He also told him that this marriage isn't bad off in reality. He just needs to get away from the pressure. Finally, his head is back where it should be. His mood is better also.

Morning Kristi. I'm so glad to hear Chris is re-prioritizing. God always makes a way if we listen and let him. The potential job sounds awesome too. Its so nice to have the smoke screen cleared at home. I'm wondering though, why didn't you guys have marriage argument 294? You know, "what did you do with my car keys? I know you moved them on purpose."lol This is a reoccuring theme around my place it seems. I've often considered moving them on purpose so I could actually be guilty. Maybe hang them on the key holder on the wall where they are supposed to be in the first place((eye roll)). I am 2 cups behind on the coffee this morning which means I've had none. I'm seriously lacking some pep((yawn)). Anywho, I'll keep praying for Chris and for your whole family daily. Is Chris feeling better? I've been worried about the severe reaction he had to whatever it was.

((HUGS))
