Amy's Week

Mark has been out in South Dakota for the past 8 days visiting Matt, Jenn, and the girls, thus I have had my second week alone this year. In July when Mark went to lead scout camp, I sulked around and let myself be miserable about being left at home while he was out playing in the woods. So, this time, I told myself that I was going to enjoy it. And I did.

I spent last weekend cleaning the house from top to bottom. I LOVE doing this! Yes, I am a freak at times! :)

The first part of the week I worked and enjoyed watching tv/movies that I wanted to watch.

Wednesday night I had some lovely lakeview ladies over for make-your-own pizza night. It was such a blessing to fill our house with friends and to catch up on their lives.

Then I spent the rest of the week doing whatever I wanted and eating the dinners I wanted - an asparagus, cheesey casserole that Mark hates for one. And I bought myself the boots I have wanted for two years.

I feel that I have wisely and prayerfully used some of this alone time to talk with the Lord about what I have going on in my heart. I feel that I was given some clear answers and some hope for my struggles. I have been so busy this year being an assistant, a co-worker, a new friend, an old friend, and trying to be a perfect wife that I had forgotten to just be Amy. And so, just for a week, I've been just me. Mark will be home in a few hours and I will be refreshed and renewed and ready to be MarkandAmy again. Oh how I've missed him...
