Going on Three Years of Bliss…

I can’t say it’s all been a bliss for my husband and I, but what I can say is that we only get stronger with each passing day. We still have issues like any couple does, but we want our marriage enough to keep the lines of communication open even if it means we hurt the other in the process.
We’ve overcome so many heartaches since we’ve been back together this go round. It’s comforting to know that he’ll be there for me through everything because he knows all there is to know about me and then some and still hasn’t left my side unless I pushed him so hard he had no choice but to do it.
This pregnancy is playing a toll on us because I can’t do like I want to do. When I do the normal things around the house or just go out with the family I hurt from doing it. I can’t sleep worth a dime in long stretches so I’m constantly having to take naps throughout the day. The sad fact is I’m only on my eighth week. What am I going to do when I’m farther along??? Then things will be really rough.
I’ve lost almost ten pounds because I can’t eat. It’s so ironic I’ve been begging for a way to turn myself against eating to much, and here I am not able to even eat a small amount of food without paying a price for it. I laugh and tell God, this isn’t what I had in mind when I was begging for help with my eating disorder. However, I’m having to resort to other means of dealing with stress and that’s definitely a blessing.
School is going, but I’m not to happy with it right now. I’m use to clear cut guidelines, and right now I don’t feel like I’m getting them for my assignments. However, some how I’m managing to give her what she wants because I’m still sitting on a hundred average. Time will tell.
Del and I have our three year wedding anniversary coming up on the 21st. We hope to be able to take off for the weekend together. Nothing fancy, just us getting away from everyone and everything for a day and a half. I hope we’re able to do it. However, if we can’t I’m just happy that we’ve gotten to this point.
Amazon.com has become my best friend because they have so many good free kindle books that offer to their customers. I have the kindle app on my phone, so I’m able to download the books and read away in the comfort of my bed. It’s such a nice thing to be able to have your books and phone all rolled up in one. Don’t get me wrong, I still love a good book to hold on to to flip the pages and have a cover to look at from time to time. 🙂 A Taylor Made Bride and  Delivered With Love are two good reads and both of them were free from Amazon.com.  The Choice (Lancaster County Secrets series) is another good one.
Well, I hope this finds you doing well. I’m trying to hang in there. 🙂

I'm Crystal. I'm married to Dale, and mother to Johnny.Some might say that my life is perfect because I get to do all the cliché wife things like cooking, cleaning, and decorating - but there's more! I also have many hobbies including needlework (crochet), sewing, and reading. My son's education is important, so we homeschool him together.
