Making It Count. {Matrimonial Monday}

One of our favorite movies is Titanic.  The year it came out we saw it at the theater 9 times.  No, that isn’t a misprint.  We went to the theater, paid for it, and watched it 9 times.  Ten times if you count seeing it a few months ago in 3D!   

I love the scene when Jack slips a note to Rose that reads ‘make it count.’  Each time I see it, this scene is a reminder to me.  What am I doing today to make it count?

Let’s be honest, none of us gets as much alone time with our spouse as we did prior to becoming parents. 

We try to have a date night out of the house once a month at least.  The date night this month was totally spur of the moment when we received an amazing gift from some friends. Here’s a pic!  Tickets to a postseason game.  The first we’ve ever been to!

We also have a ‘home’ date night several times a week.  Usually this consists of watching a movie or working out together after the kids are in bed.

For us, just being in the same room feels like a date.  We enjoy hanging out with each other.  Even when I just need to get a few things done, hubs wants me to be in the same room.  He’ll carry my computer downstairs for me so I’m all set up to work while we watch tv. 

We enjoy working on projects together around the house too.  We once revamped our entire basement after our sump pump went out.  In three weeks we cleaned it up.  We also painted every wall, trim, and door then had new carpet installed.  Why three weeks?  To host Thanksgiving.  We decided it would kick us in gear to get it done.  Boy, did it.  We spent every night from 9pm until 2am working on it.  Can you say exhaustion? 

How do you make it count?

    What an inspirational couple you two are, Michelle. It’s always so great to hear about couples who really work together and work well together. My husband and I have some challenges in that department! ha! Thanks for sharing!

    Anytime I can catch him on the phone or a few minutes on the couch is how I make it count ;) We are like ships passing in the night, but we make the most of what we have. We’re neighbors today ;) Blessings!

    We love in home date nights. Lately, we’ve been watching some of our favorite TV shows together. It’s been nice just to relax at night snuggled up on the couch together. I can’t wait for the colder weather to set in and we can enjoy some time by the fireplace! Thank you for sharing. :)

    Found your blog through the Time-Warp Wife Link-up.

    This post is a good reminder to me not to take for granted the importance of date nights and time alone with my husband. We have 5 kids and find ourselves “too busy” to make time for each other too often. Thanks for the prompt I needed!

    This is very inspirational and it can be difficult when the children come like you said but I do plan to hurry many things up so I can be with him when he gets home.
    Visiting from Matrimonial Monday, have a super blessed day!
    Love
