Ultimate Blog Challenge #9-Compromise
Good Morning! I am getting up at 6 a.m., because then I have enough time to do what I want in the morning before Mari gets up and we go walking. I like this time of the year, but I don't. I like the coolness, but I don't like it being dark when I get up. I am enjoying the new bed, but there is one part that I don't like and that is, that the covers, which I sleep under, end up going towards Rory's side of the bed. I talked to him about it this morning and he said, we can move it over, as long as I still get to sleep on top of the cotton. Even with the new bed, he is sleeping under a blanket and not all of the covers. I told Rory that he needs to figure out something to do on the weekends, so that he does not get cabin fever, as he was driving us nuts on Sunday and Mari was trying to study. When things are all about Rory, he doesn't understand what it means to compromise. It has to be his way and he does not like to deal with other people. That is why he likes the weekdays, as the kids are in school and the adults are at work. Everything has to be routine and he has a hard time with variety. I did talk to the attorney we had do our family trust about what would happen to the money we have in our investments if I was to leave Rory, and I found out that, because it is his inheritance, he would get the money and I would get nothing. Today, I am really trying to work my mindset into just taking one day at a time and letting God be in control. I was trying to have hope that maybe one day I would not have to live with Rory, but I don't know if that is going to happen, but I have to remember that God is in control and not me. Today Mari has school from 1-4 p.m. and then Mari and I are going to a planning meeting for a trip that we are hoping to take in March to Death Valley to see the wildflowers. I am planning to go to the storage unit to organize some things.
