What a fabulous media free day I had. Well, until now that is. clearly.
Most nights I feel guilty (because my husband makes me) about being on my laptop so much. I deserve the guilt. I am on it a lot. But, in my defense I have a lot to do online. I have emails, facebook (which I clearly need), I have my blog, blogs that I follow, atleast 1 hour a night stalking different social businesses, I also do LOTS of different fundraisers to help with our trip to Africa, as well as being in school.
This doesn’t make it ok. I SHOULD spend more quality with my husband and not be so media crazed. If something ever happened to my husband, I would be lost. Well, today that day came. unfortunately mainly because I didn’t get service where we were fishing at.
Woke up, had some breakfast after an awesome night sitting by a fire outside and just chatting. I was so proud of myself, Im not usually a preparer. My mother in law though. Oh she is. If we are going somewhere she will have everything you could possibly ever need and then cheese and crackers, just in case.
SO this morning I have several bags, had all the lunch meat, cheese, 3 bags of chips, double stuffed oreos ( because who goes fishing without double stuffed oreos) whole wheat bread, a few grape fruits, TWO avocados and a knife to cut it up, waters, dee pee, and some beers. I also had my book im reading, dog toys, blankets to lay out, a towel to dry the dogs off with, water bowl for them (that tyler later ran over. awesome.) I was basically a REAL wife today and got crap done.
We had such a wonderful day! Tyler, Amanda (sis in law), and jerry (father in law) did this…..
You know doing actual FISHING stuff and being awesome at it. In the mean time I’m doing things like this…
You know doing things like taking pictures of myself, showing my awesome rain boots off, annoying my husband making him take pics with me and the best reading more of my AWESOME book! Basically doing everything but fishing because I don’t have a fishing license. YES you read that correctly, I’m a Game Wardens wife and I don’t have a fishing license.
The whole point is I was MAC BOOK FREE! this is huge. I’ll admit I tried to log on, on my phone. YEP still no service.
The best part was, it was beautiful outside and we got to all spend quality time together and I got to read so much more of my book. Learning and reading more about God and different outlooks. Every few pages I would just all of the sudden realize how lucky I was for my family, for my pups, for my husband and most of all…for my God. He is everything to me.
Then there is this picture..
I was sitting on my blanket reading my book and I looked up because I heard and airplane. The first thing I could think about was I cannot wait until Tyler and I are in a plane on our way to Africa. This will truly be a dream come true for me. I was sitting on a blanket today enjoying my day with family in Junction, Tx. In 3 months Tyler and I will be sitting on blankets outside of the orphanage playing with all the sweet kids.
My heart is full.
I am so thankful to my God. My husband is my rock. Life is just as it should be…
