Prior to moving to El Paso I cooked dinner every night, except on Fridays (our designated date night). But our kitchen has been pretty lifeless since March, due to a combination of morning sickness and Tim's training schedule. Hopefully this week puts us back on track for nightly dinners together. For the first time in months I planned meals for each night this week. And, bonus: I didn't get sick at the grocery store, ha. Now the challenge is getting Tim home to actually eat what I make. It's 5:40 now and he still has no idea when he'll be home tonight. The baby and I were getting hungry so we'll see how long chips and salsa and a protein bar can hold us over--my guess, not long. I feel hungry ALL the time, now. Although I'm looking forward to cooking and eating together once again, what I'm most anxious for is our prayer time before dinner. Tim used to pray aloud before we ate and it was one of my favorite parts of the day. When he's out on training I need to be better about writing in my prayer journal daily to ensure we're praying for all our friends and family on a regular basis. Praying throughout the day is good, but a concentrated, set aside time to speak to God, and listen, I find to be the most beneficial for sending up all our requests for our loved ones. Hold on, Tim's calling...and he's coming home! Guess I better get cookin'.

Ashley, this is a beautiful way to keep everyone updated on your family! We're so glad you're feeling better but don't wait for Tim to eat if you get hungry. You and the baby are the priority right now. Your comment about Tim's prayer before dinner was very touching.
