The Husband Project {Wrap Up}

As we wrap up The Husband Project here on the blog, don't let that stop you from continuing your projects as you are able. The Husband Project is a tool to get you started--it doesn't need to be followed perfectly. It is meant to give you a jump start to refreshing your marriage and lighting that spark back up.

 The holiday weekend even threw me for a loop and I've had to let a couple days go and pick them up again. No big deal!

Remember the point of the project. It's not a race. It's a reboot for your marriage. Even if you only do one project per week, it still counts.

Making Progress and More Projects {Husband Project}

What a week!!! Now, I have to admit, with all the buzz surrounding this series, I am surprised to see such scarce comments on Facebook about how the projects are going.

Everyday on Facebook, I post a photo inviting you to share how your project went the day before.

You can click the photos below to take you to each post and share with us how it went. If you don't have a Facebook, no problem!! Share in the comments.

Here is how some of your projects went last week:

" I let him opt-out of a birthday party we were going to. I made sure the kids and I were out of the house before he got home from work, and I made sure the house was nice and clean so he had a stress-free place to come home to. I think he spent most of the evening working on projects, but at least he could do them without two little boys slowing him down, and he commented on how nice the house looked when I got home :)" -Lauren

"When he walked in the house, I was cooking up a storm in the kitchen. He had checked the mail (I put a card for him in the mailbox.) He swept me in his arms and gave me a passionate kiss without stopping to pet the dog who was going crazy at his feet. Usually the dog gets the first hello from everyone in the family because she's the most excited :) This morning as I was driving to work, we were talking on the phone, and he asked me if I had any idea how good I make his life. It's nice to hear confirmation like that from your husband!" -Hope
"My husband and the boys go once a month to a wrestling match that is put on. It is good clean family fun. I have never attend! Last my daughter and I gave up a quiet night at home to go with the guys. Everyone had a great time. And it was an excellent way for me to get out of my box!" -Crystal
"I handed my husband a bag of his favorite candy that morning, and made sure the children saw me do it, and I explained clearly to everyone that Daddy did not have to share it with anyone. (He did, of course.) :)" -Sheryl
Here's a screen shot of how my husband and I converse through texting on a daily basis:
Oh yes, we got this down. Aren't we pathetic? Ha ha, I love it!
If you feel like you are behind, you're not. Just jump in and share with where ever you are. These posts aren't going to go away. I get every single comment in my inbox, so I will not miss your comments.
Tell me what you're looking forward to most with the upcoming projects.

 

Planning Projects {The Husband Project}

For those of you who are just joining in, we haven't begun the actual projects yet. We begin the projects a week from today. So no worries if you think you're "behind" because you really aren't. :)

Right now we are reading through the book {The Husband Project} in it's entirety --- it's not too long and it's a fun, easy read. I recommend, when you get to the projects section, to have a highlighter and a pencil ready to jot notes! It might even be a great idea to have a calendar template of some sort ready to go.

The important thing about doing the projects is to remember to take it one day at a time, and simply give it your best.

As I'm reading through these, I can see some will be more challenging {for me} than others.

Take Project 5: E-Flirt.com, for example - piece of cake. Really. We already do this with little effort. I might need to get a little more creative, but it's not hard to please my husband with my words.

Project 2: Back in the Day, on the other hand, looks like it's going to challenge me to train for a 5k (no joke).

So, here's how I'm going to present the remainder of this series:

Next Wednesday, I will begin sharing how the projects went for my husband on my Facebook page.

So, if you haven't "liked" my NEW Facebook page yet, you'll want to do that here.

{Click just to make sure you've liked the right page, because I switched it over last week}.

I'll try to avoid any gritty details that the whole world doesn't need to know, but I'll give an overall account. I will also have a link up on my blog for anyone else who wants to share their projects -- whether it be just a few or all of them. There is no limit. But the link up will be only on Wednesdays - even though I will post my project everyday on Facebook.

So, if you want to come back and link up another project, you can. Just list the project name in the title section and use your permalink.

If you don't have a blog, no problem! Feel free to share in the comments, either here on the blog or on Facebook, if you are compelled to do so. My goal is to make sharing as simple as possible.

So, who's ready to do this?!
