I have to give credit where credit is due...
I have a pretty awesome hubby.
While I've not been feeling well this past week, he's been on the ball. Maybe not keeping our house clean & doing all the dishes, but he's been so attentive... getting me whatever I need, making sure I'm comfortable, feeding the dogs (which is a job when you have 4 dogs, let me tell you)
... he knows too that for me, my big stress relievers are running & knitting...
well, when your feet are numb & your hands feel like they are covered with band-aids, that throws out my 2 stress relievers...
so what have we been doing?
I was raised a "game player"
My mom always was playing games with us growing up. Any card game? Got it down. Trivia games? I'm the master of any useless information! Word games? My speciality...
Ricky's not a huge game player... I think because he's so dang competitive. He doesnt care if you feel bad... if he looses, you WILL play another game.
Our game of choice this week? Skip-Bo
I've never played it before this week. But we read the directions... & then to make sure we understand, looked it up online. Did you know you can find YouTube videos on pretty much everything. Its always better to see things actually worked out in front of you sometimes.
I actually prefer "Double Solitaire"... but Ricky likes Skip-Bo... & I'll take anything that makes us laugh & takes our minds off the the stressful things of life.
Are you game players? Got any suggestions for good games that 2 people can play?
And for the record... Ricky will never ever play me in Scrabble... but I'll never ever play him in chess... we know what lines are safer not to cross :)
