I must give thanks to my lovely wife for keeping me grounded. The new semester started this week (on Tuesday). You may suspect that I get a LITTLE obsessive when it comes to school work. Such as having a paper due on 2/7 and starting to think I'm behind and there's no way to do all the research in time and on and on.

Ellen, on the other hand, was good enough to remind me I have over 2 weeks to get it done. And it's not like I haven't done anything like it before. That course builds on all the work I've done so far. And nearly every paper I submitted that I thought was not bad got a really good grade.

So I'm trying to pace myself and get some work done every night and so far I'm doing well! I've got a outline under way which I should have done some time next week. Which should still give me plenty of time to gather resources and actually write the thing. My other course is not too demanding right now so I'll just keep plugging way.

Wives have a great way of smacking their husbands upside the head (figuratively if not literally). Thank the Lord for such a wonderful lady.

God bless Ellen!

Sometimes all of us need a little nudge or reminder to keep things in perspective.

Jude: Amen to that! I feel blessed every day (well, very nearly every day) that she's my wife. I never forget what a lucky man I am.
Jude said…
And that makes her one very lucky woman too Vince. :-)

You two are an inspiration, did you know that?

Spouses are great for balancing each other out and keeping us grounded. That's why we keep them around (and vis-a-vis). :)

Jude: I've been told I'm inspiring, but I'm not too sure what I'm inspiring people to do.

Jammie: Indeed! That, and it's cheaper to keep your spouse that try and upgrade to a youner model.
