>So my husband and I got super tired of only watching movies and t.v. together when he comes home from work everyday. But we really didn’t know what else we could do instead. Most board games are more fun when there are 3+ people playing. I stink at card games and we can only sit and talk for so long.
We came upon our new hobby kind of by accident. We were in the car riding to a shopping center and I started reading a book that I had left in the car. I asked Matthew if he wanted me to read it out loud so it would seem less like I was shutting him out. He told me only if I wanted to, which was code for, that is one of your girly christian romance novels, so if you make me listen I will. So…I started reading. By the time we got back to the shopping center, I didn’t have him hooked, but he was interested. I read it some more on our way home and even more once we got home. He is now thoroughly engrossed in the story and we are taking turns reading it whenever we have a little time together.
In case you were wondering what book it is, its Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. It is a wonderful story and I have read it many times. It is easy to read out loud because the chapters are really short. I am not sure exactly what we will read after we are done, maybe a book Matthew likes. I am thinking about Frankenstein by Mary Shelley.
What do you do to spend time together? Anything unique?
