Yep. We are taking the challenge. I read the book, saw the movie and to be brutaly honest, thought, we don't need this! We are perfect! Yeah well I don't know what made me change my mind, but we are doing it and I am loving it. So I'll let you know from time to time how its going!
Geoff fell asleep while watching the movie because the acting was so bad. But he got the idea. Then in my MOPS group we decorated these little boxes and we had the tasks on paper, we cut them out into little strips and folded all 40 and put them in the box. I was not sure whether or not I was going to even use it. But I got a wild hair and stuck it in Geoff's work bag....he would hate it if I called it a briefcase....anyway. He never mentioned it for 4 days or so, finally I brought it up and he said he was waiting for me to explain it to him. I figured that he threw it away. So the following day he pulled a 'note' out of the box and emailed it to me. We decide if its something that we need to discuss and work on or if we even have issues in that area. We keep an open dialog about the 'note' most of the day and its been fun. Some of the tasks are no brainers, but there are some that we need to work on and implement into our lives. We moved the TV and computer out of our bedroom, because its such a distraction. Mostly a distraction between our communication. Everything that we always talk about is centered around our kids and its hard to talk to each other about each other after the kids are in bed and we have the TV and computer to get in the way. So that is one sacrifice that each of us has made for each other. We take the weekends off. But you both have to want to do it. And sometimes its not easy and very uncomfortable. But over all I have really gotten something out of it.
So we are not perfect after all.......darn.
That's my soap box about it. Hope that it makes sense.

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week. I have always wanted to participate and I figured this would be a good way to ease myself back in the saddle, so to speak!
I most certainly have NOT blogged in over a week.
I have NOT had to make 4 trips to the Dr, Specialist and Urgent care in the past week and a half for 3 of my girls.
I am NOT listening to my girls singing karaoke, Cinderella by Steven Curtis Chapman, right now and tearing up.
I have NOT been at odds with myself and question my moodiness and wonder if I need some professional help.
I did NOT most certainly win the prize for Best Presentation and People's Choice at the Chili Cook-Off at Church this past Friday night!!!!!! What? What did I win, you ask? Gift card to Chili's restaurant, of course!
I have NOT been overbooked with things that I have signed up for!! I have a commitment everyday this week. Today is my only day off!
I did NOT sign 3 of my girls up for T-ball and softball for this spring season! Its going to be busy!
I most certainly did NOT enjoy the 65-70 degree temps that we had the past few days and are supposed to continue to have into the week..
During the heat wave I did NOT let the little ones play in the sand box and back yard and get totally muddy!
At last but not least....I just now did NOT have to stop what I was doing and clean up a pee-pee mess from my 2 year old that is wearing big girl panties.....ugh.
......Today is Monday, right?!?!
