The Buzz!

My husband and I have arrived at a new level in our marriage. I am not sure if it is a step up or down....maybe it is sideways!
Over the years (almost 10!) I have offered to help my husband out by cutting his hair. I do not have any formal training. Just being witness to my mom buzzing my 5 younger brothers hair. That counts for something...I was an accomplice?
Well he has ALWAYS said "NO WAY!" In order to preserve our marriage, he would not let me touch his hair!
Well he came to the place where he did not want to spend the money on the haircut ($8-$10+tip). You know when you get to the bottom of the barrel, $10 is alot of mulla.
So he got out his beard trimmer he uses for his goatie and put it to his head!
Aaah!! I told him if he's gonna do that..please let me help!
So I gave him what we affectionately call, the "Lonnie" cut. It is your basic buzz. But it has been named after a friend. I'm sure he'll be honored...maybe?
I spent a long time buzzing, trying to get it just right. But in the end it looked like I spent less than 5 minutes! Then our son decided it was 'Awesome' and he wanted a buzz like Daddy! I was feeling pretty proud of my guys...they looked real good with some gel in there hair...real stylin'!

Oh, and by the way....our marriage is doing great!

And our pocket book doesn't get thinner!

How Nice....

I picked this didy up over at Laurel Wreath's...

Online Dating

Well isn't it nice to know you can come and bring your kids to read my blog!
But I think the few intimate friends that really now me, know that that rating is WAY off!

Some thoughts

Recently I have been talking with either a family member or friend about marital problems. Not mine though. I have just been thinking about how so many people see divorce as an option. That if there was just some way for people to see that marriage is not the wedding and you're done. But that it is a whole new beginning. And it is actually one of the biggest challenges of your life!
I have come from a broken home and know the pain of it. I have also seen strife in the home from discontented Christians. Unfortunately there is no magic potion or easy answers. It just starts with making priorities, and interestingly enough, your spouse is one of them. I am saying all this, I guess mostly to remind myself I suppose. That today I need to take the time and tell my 'Man' that I love him. But to not only say it But to also show it through my actions throughout the day.

Reminder to self...go tell him!
