day 10 of being a better wife

I can't believe I'm getting so close to this experiment being over! The good news is I have a few other awesome ideas for this blog after this 14 days to being a better wife is over. And I'm excited to share them all with you!

But right now, I'm still putting lots of focus on being a better wife. So today I got to carpool to work/school this morning with Mr.Jolley. It was so fun! And that poor man is so congested. Bless his heart. He went to work even though he is so sick. See what a hard worker I married? 

I made it a point to remind him that if he needed anything than he should let me know because I get 1 hour breaks at school right now. And when I dropped him off I gave him a big smooch on the cheek and sent him off with an "I love you!"


I want him to know how grateful I am that he is working so hard and providing for us so I can be a full time cosmetology student. So I try to make sure I tell him all of the really cool positive things I'm learning. I even practiced a head massage on him! 

And since tonight was supposed to be date night and I had picked to go out to dinner, I told him id rather just get fast food and go relax so his body could rest. After eating Wendy's, we went home and finished Shrek. Then I told him I wanted him to pick the movie while I practiced braiding. We sat on the couch next to each other and he expressed gratitude for me being understanding about date night. 

Today I learned that putting your spouse above you can bring so much joy. I love that man and he works so hard and does so much for me. And even though I can't do much when heh is sick, I can be understanding. And I can make the bed, even if I hate to.
