Part of the reason we were exhausted by today was this...
About a week ago, we found an old barn advertised on Craigslist for free. We thought it would be a fun project and hopefully we could make some money by selling the wood and doors etc. We're hoping to use the money to go on an anniversary trip in January or February! I wouldn't say I'm totally regretting the decision to do this BUT.....oh my goodness, I am feeling muscles I never knew I had! Brad and I were both so sore this morning and last night.
Guess it's not something everyone would like to do, but Brad and I both love to get our hands dirty and the creative side of me sees all kinds of things I want him to do and make with all of this old wood! Yesterday, when I finally sat to take a break, I asked Brad if he thinks we'll regret doing this. It seemed like it was going to take forever and I'm the type to second guess myself pretty quickly. I was thinking "Oh my...we're sore and achy and who knows if we will even make any money from this thing"! Without missing a beat he said "I don't regret it at all....I'm having a blast"! I have a feeling if I would ask him that today he would say the same thing, even though he wasn't feeling 16 anymore! : )
After reading the book "Wild at Heart" a few years ago...one thing that always stayed with me is "be part of your husbands adventure". It makes him feel so loved when I'm right there by his side pounding nails out and "ripping down barns". There were many other things I could've done yesterday, but I wouldn't have missed being there beside him. Sore and achy as I am.."I don't regret it! Not one bit!!!"
