Here is my mission today, straight from Kathi Lipp.

Taking Care of You Tuesday

Not only does you husband want a hot wife – he deserves a hot wife! time to make sure you are taking care of yourself.

All I want you to do today is go find some lotion in your house. If you are anything like me, you have bottles of lotion in the downstairs bath, under the master bath sink and tucked throughout the house. Also, if you are like me, you hardly ever think to use it.

Take just 60 seconds and go use that lotion – on your hands, on your heels, rubbed into your elbows – whatever will make you feel cared for and loved!

This is my kind of mission! I felt like Kathi has been snooping in my bathrooms. I’m one of those girls who loves the idea of lotions and nice smells, but I never take the time to actually use them. I found a Lime Margarita lotion that I used after my shower. The scent will probably be gone by the time BigMac get home. However, I think the point of this project is the important reminder to try to make myself look nice for My Man.

I know there are plenty of times when I put more time and effort into my appearance when I’m going to the grocery store than when I’ll see MyMan. Who deserves to see me at my best?

Pretty easy Husband Project today. Whew!

Super quick update…I just got my SIGNED copy of The Husband Project. Well, two of them, but more on that later. Anyhoo…while My Man and Girls were finishing dinner, I ran upstairs to “go to the bathroom.” Really, I just wanted to take a peek at my new treasure. I was about 2 pages in when I started LAUGHING OUT LOUD IN THE BATHROOM. Oy, how am I going to explain that? Especially when I start doing it after every meal?? I’ll write more later, of course, but this book is off to a FANTASTIC start!!

PS-Mission #2 arrived in my email today. Stay tuned…

I am SO EXCITED to be a part of the release of The Husband Project by Kathi Lipp. I will be given 5 projects to bless my husband. Yipee for BOTH o f us!

My first project is to plan a little weekend date. Yikes! My first thought is, “Who will watch my kids?” Childcare might just be the bane of our date life. So, before I can plan a date of any sort, I need to plan childcare. A few ideas:

  1. Family-My folks are always happy to watch my girls, but I feel sort of guilty asking without a prior commitment of some sort. Dentist appointment? Sure. Random date? Hmmm, maybe not.
  2. Trade Kids-We have worked out a deal with another couple. One Tuesday per month we take their kids and another Tuesday a month they take our kids. We try to plan a fun kids’ dinner, some games, and maybe a movie. When it’s our date night, our kids are in jammies with teeth brushed wen we pick them up! This is fantastic, but not very spur-of-the-moment, which is what I need for The Husband Project.
  3. Local Teen-When we moved about 6 months ago, we were in love with our house. We still are. But the very best benefit of our new street, just 2 blocks away from our old street, is that we have a wonderful 13 year old babysitter just two houses down. She’s young enough that her social life isn’t super packed and her rates are pretty low. If your home doesn’t include a stand-by babysitter, check with friends and neighbors to see if they can recommend anyone. Check with your local church to see if they have any teens trying to raise funds. You might even call your local middle school for suggestions.

I’ve got my lovely neighbor girl lined up to watch my girls for a couple of hours! Yipee! First step of date planning is well under way!

What are your childcare tips? How do you plan a date night?
