What I've Learned This Week

It is time for another week of "What I've Learned This Week". It seems like I didn't learn enough last week, so this week was another round of lessons. So, here goes!

  1. The more time that I have alone with my hubby, the more I want
  2. Because of #1...I'm never satisfied :-)
  3. The more trips that I take with my hubby, the further I want to go with him
  4. My hubby and I can find the greatest pleasures in the simpliest things...window shopping, riding and sightseeing, sitting & talking or just doing nothing
  5. My hubby's patients very seldom ever wears thin, even with age
  6. Where as mine...well, you could read through mine and its gets worse with age.
  7. I take foregranted the respectful ways our children treat us until they are disrespectful toward us
  8. We are our childrens parents, not their friends
  9. Kids today have a harder time keeping the two seperate...parent/adults vs. friends their own age
  10. My child might drive me crazy somedays, let me be away from him for a couple of days...boy, do I miss him...with takes a couple of days because days 1 & 2 are used for recovery, then the missing him sets in.

For more fun things that we have learned this week...join our host Jo-Lynne at Mushings of a Housewife.

Have a wonderfully blessed day!


  1. Love you list of things learned, Jennifer! May we all learn each one of these.

    Have a great week!

  2. sounds like you and Roger had a great get-away. But I know you missed your Tyler! -love, Laurie

  3. Love it. I think this is such a great meme.

  4. Being the stubborn gal that I am, it takes me forever to learn a lesson. hee hee However, this is a wonderful list, Jennifer.

    I was just thinking the other day, your kids are at the age where you and hubby can start "dating" again. You don't have to worry about diaper bags, feedings, finding a sitter, etc. You can just go and enjoy one another.
    *sigh*-- special times, girlie... special times.

  5. Great list! I get to get away with my hubby this weekend and I can hardly wait! And you are right. Just being alone together is what is fun, it doesn't matter what we do!

  6. Hi Jennifer, I am just getting started with the great folks on my blog. Just got finished reading your,s. It,s so rewarding to read what the Lord can do with a little help from us. Your willingness to be committed to your marriage is commendable. We have been married for 55 years. Seems like yesterday,but it,s been a rather long journey, that either of us wouldn,t trade for anything. All though,s up,s and downs only make us strong. God is so good. Roberta

  7. Great list of things learned. So glad you and Roger had a great get-a-way!

  8. Great lessons that we could all learn from. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Great list..
    I agree about our children not understanding the friend/parent part.
    I remember telling Andrea so many times "I am not your friend I am your Mother...One day when you get married and have a family...then we can become friends". Now I wonder if it will ever happen. I will not give up hope! I believe one day she will be back in my life!

  10. Isn't it a blessing to enjoy one's husband's company so much!? :-)

  11. Great list! I know what you mean about spending time with hubby. I can't get enough! Guess that's what makes a good marriage :o)

    Take care my friend!
    Hope you have a great day!

  12. Oh man, I can completely relate to your list! I share the same thing as you especially when hubby's patience never seems to waiver and mine is constantly in the debt status! Thanks for making me not feel so alone!


  13. I have to agree with your list completely. I feel like I must have written it as I share with you both the issues of young children as well as teens. Somedays I find my patience in the negative while you are right my hubbys' is never ending and always plentiful! Thanks for making me feel not so alone in my life!

    Love Kat
