almost October

Only one more day until October! October is my favorite month of the entire year. I debated having my wedding this coming weekend since my dream wedding was always held on October 4. Well, dreams change. I am very glad I didn't wait. The past 4 months have been absolutely amazing in all the right ways. I have learned so much more about myself and Matthew and through our marriage, about the Lord. I have become much more patient (though I have to constantly guard myself against needless anger and tempers. My strongest weakness) and gained a servants heart. I love being the helper lover. And my leader provider makes it all so worth while.

I just got done doing a bunch of household chores and I still have a smile on my face. That's how I know my heart has been softened. I can only imagine what motherhood will bring! Saturday is generally my cleaning day since I don't have work or church. But of course, little odds and ends must be taken care of throughout the week! I love keeping our home neat and organized.

Every night I begin to feel worn down and tired. I glance at the clock to see what time I'll be getting to bed tonight... And it's 8 PM! Definitely not my bedtime! I have been so exhausted lately even with my afternoon nap between my two jobs. I definitely get enough sleep so I don't know what the problem is. While I have the extra time to sleep I'll take it though. I'm wishing for baby number 1 to come along soon and when he or she does that will be it for my regularly scheduled naps and 8 hour nights! I think it will all even out though. I can hardly wait for our little bundle of joy.

I am beginning to become more of a simple girl. Which is good. I used to be all about the big dnact designer clothes, shoes, and handbags. Now the name doesn't matter so much to me. I still have my weaknesses like everyone else (namely coach purses!) but overall, I'm beginning to see the folly in over spending. I don't want to be a silly girl. I want to make the most of Matthew and my time and hard earned money. We could do far better things with our paychecks than waste it away on overpriced clothes. I think a simple life will suit us just fine.

Matthew is off killing hordies on WoW. I think I'll fix myself a nice cup of vanilla tea and settle down with Anne's House of Dreams. I love being able to do whatever we want but still be together since we live together. Everything was so much more difficult and forced when we were dating and time seemed wasted if we weren't doing the same thing. Married life is wonderful.

I love my husband desperately.
