Day 288: The Dick Van Dyke Show

July 25, 2012

We love to watch The Dick Van Dyke Show on Netflix. (In fact, we like to watch whatever Dick Van Dyke appears in.) For act 288, we watched an episode in our bed as I held your hand and we (unintentionally) fell asleep. That probably wasn’t the best idea because our laptop was on my lap and I tend to toss and turn during the night.


Day 269: Your Desires Above Mine

July 2, 2012

On Saturday I planned on going to bed early because I was tired and had to get up early for work the next day. When I told you I was going to bed, you asked me to stay up with you so we could snuggle on the couch together while we watched a show on the computer. That didn’t sound like fun to me, but I did it anyway because I love you. While my intentions were good, I fell asleep not five minutes into the show.

Day 183: Holding Your Hand

April 1, 2012

I wanted to do a certain act of love for you with the help of our girls, since we all had the chance to hang out on Thursday, but the day got away from me. Before I knew it, the girls were in bed, so I couldn’t do the act I had planned. Instead, when we went to bed, I held your hand until we fell asleep.

Day 167: Letting You Rest

March 16, 2012

Tuesday marked the first day after I turned in my project that we had a chance to rest. We both needed it because we worked so hard these past few weeks that we nearly made ourselves sick. However, the kids woke up much earlier than usual, so we couldn’t sleep in as planned. So, for my act of love, I told you to sleep in while I watched the kids. I had a great time giving them a piano lesson and reading to them. When you woke up, it was 11. I’m glad you had the chance to get that rest, especially since it was because of me that you worked so hard.

Day 161: Putting the Baby to Sleep

March 10, 2012

I’m back! I took a few days off of writing posts so I could finish up that project for work. It’s done (forever, I hope) and now I can focus on 365.

On Wednesday, after working for hours and hours straight, we were both so tired that we were sick to our stomachs. You told me to go to bed because you knew I had to get up in a few hours to work again. As you said this, though, you looked like you were going to vomit. So, for my act of love, I told you that I would put the baby to sleep so you could go to bed. You did, but couldn’t sleep. So, we sat on the couch together, taking care of the baby.

Day 159

March 6, 2012

I’ve been so preoccupied with work lately, and for good reason, that I haven’t been focusing on this blog. So after a long day yesterday, I attempted to come up with an act to commit for you. All I could think of was sleep, so I decided to massage your hand while going to sleep. This woke you up, though, and you offered me your other hand once I was done with the first. Then, you offered me your feet. So, I ended up massaging your hands and feet for my act of love.

This preoccupation will end by Friday, though, so you can expect more thought out acts of love coming up. Right now, it’s all I can do to be consistent.
