We have had some things around the camper that we really need to take care of. I hate to say it, but we do not use the table to eat at. Son will sit at it, but hubby and I have not. We just do not have a lot of room. The benches are being used as a “collect all” or storage place to put things. lol One of our chairs is also in the way of one of the benches. We really do not have a lot of floor space in here.
So, the problem with son sitting at the table is that he knocks things down. I tell him to pick them up, and he does or he forgets or, well….. whatever! Yesterday I spent time picking up things from the floor that was under the table. I also pulled our wet/dry vac out and vacuumed the floor. I would have used my big vacuum, but it is in storage. So this little thing will need to just do the job. After that, I took a bowl of hot water with carpet cleaner and a scrub brush and decided to “clean” the carpet in the living area. It did not take very long and I used the wet/dry vac to suck up the water. The floor was not very wet and the vacuum picked up a lot of it. I then put a little fan on it and in about an hour the carpet was dry. The camper smelled really good too.
I wanted to touch on the title of this post. Whats love got to do with it? Everything!! Yesterday, my hubby called from his job to talk to me during his lunch. Very common occurrence with him. He was going on and on about this situation we are in and about the job issues he has had for over the past year. He kept saying thank you to me for sticking with him and believing in him. Finally I asked him, how could I not? I mean, what was I really going to do – leave? His response was that there are many women out there that would have been gone a long time ago. Here is kinda how I responded to him. When I married him, I made vows with him. In better or worse, richer or poorer, etc, etc. (we all knows these) If I were to just up and leave, would I take my vows seriously? If I were to leave, then does/did this marriage ever mean anything to me? If I knew for a fact that he was not looking for a better job or at least working, then it would be very easy for anyone to leave. But because I believe in the vows that I have made – I stand beside them. I believe in them and I believe in him. Isnt that what love is all about? The way I see it – love has EVERYTHING to do with it.
On that note, I need to go make lunch for my munchkin. lol He has been telling me for over 30 minutes that he is hungry. Coming up tomorrow, a review of a really good meal from my crockpot cookbook.
Enjoy your hump day! Thanks for reading.
