Recently my husband changed jobs. He has gone from working every weekend to having weekends free. I cannot believe the change that this has made in me!

Suddenly I am cleaning my fridge, organizing cupboards, planning meals, cooking meals. It reminds me of the nesting instinct that some women experience when they are pregnant.

It’s a bit crazy, but I am loving just puttering around the house while I hear the sound of a football game in the other room, or the sense of security I feel just knowing he is outside washing the cars.

I’m not sure how long this phase will last, but it certainly feels comfortable for now.

I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. I love when my husband was home on weekends–you feel like you have a real life with everyone else. Enjoy!

  2. It’s also nice to nest at this time of year, autumn and winter, a chill outdoors, comfort and cooking and warmth in the home. Enjoy!

  3. I think it is the sense of security that I like.
    Hope you have a blessed day

  4. Ditto!

  5. I can’t believe how much I miss my husband when he’s gone for an hour to shop or on an appointment! Weekends are special and meant to be spent with your loved one. When they’re not there, it’s like an ordinary day.

  6. I love having my husband home. It is a comfort although we might go hours without talking to each other. Enjoy!

  7. Congrats on the happy change and have fun with your nesting.
