    This morning, DH asked me to make a deposit for him at the bank. In the three years we have been married, he has never asked me to do that. He always runs by the bank when he needs to on his way home from work. He gets off at 3:30 , and the bank closes...
  • R4D4 Couldn't do it

    • 11 Comments
    I didn't get today's dare done. I can't call him during the day at work. I can text and he can text back when he has a chance. I had an opportunity to text him and ask if I could do anything for him today, but I chickened out. I am doing SO...
  • R3D31 God is at work

    • 11 Comments
    Tonight at the dinner table, DH brought up the subject of Thanksgiving. He said he had discussed it with his daughter a couple of weeks ago after I told him I had thought about trying to move out before Thanksgiving. The night that DH told me he had spoken...
  • R3D22 Did it in R1 but not today....

    • 7 Comments
    I couldn't bring myself to complete today's dare. What used to be so easy to say is now so difficult, and not because I don't mean it. I told him 4 nights ago that I love him and that I always will. It was the night that he told me he had...
  • Having a hard time

    • 7 Comments
    I sat down and read my divorce papers this morning after DH left for work. Since we had a prenup, I wasn’t surprised by anything except for one thing. The papers request that my name be changed back to my maiden name. I’m having a hard time...

    My husband‘s company picnic is tomorrow afternoon at a local amusement park. In the past, he and I have always gone together. The company pays for anyone living in your household. Then, they allow you to purchase extra tickets at a discount for...
  • The beginning of the “lasts”

    • 7 Comments
    I realized this morning that the “lasts” have begun. Last night was the last Thursday night I will live in our home with DH. I will be on a business trip next Thursday night. I will get back on Friday evening and move that Saturday. Tomorrow...
  • So little time....

    • 6 Comments
    So much to do and so little time. I have packed for days. Well, when I haven't been working. I was out of town on business yesterday and today. I postponed my move until Monday. It's supposed to rain tomorrow and Sunday nonstop, and I just didn't...
  • I don't want to move.

    It is 9:30 at night, and I haven't slowed down since 6:30 this morning. I took 4 carloads of stuff to my house. I spent most of the day emptying my closet, dresser, and chest. I kept out enough clothes for the next couple of days and put them in a...
  • R2D23 Love protects

    • 6 Comments
    Dare 23 - love always protects. It is interesting that this dare fell today in light of my Bible study last night. Our study leader said that there are two sides to God's love, nurture and protection. The nurturing side includes His compassion, mercy...
  • Oh boy, now what???

    • 6 Comments
    Well I just thought things were getting better. DH told me on the way to bed tonight that he wants a divorce and that his mind is made up. He says he told his daughter 2 weeks ago. We chatted for a while, very calmly. He says that he gave it more time...
  • Day 31 My Number 1 Priority

    • 6 Comments
    Today was another difficult dare for me. As DH becomes more distant, it is increasingly difficult to do the dares. Neither one of us has issues with not leaving our parents. His are both deceased, as is my mom. I believe he has had issues leaving his...
  • Why do I second guess myself constantly??!!!

    • 6 Comments
    I hope that I just did the right thing. My husband mentioned to me before he left for work this morning that his company has reinstated the company picnic. Up until last year, the company had always done a picnic at a local amusement park. They provided...
  • R4D27. Struggling

    • 6 Comments
    After completing 3 rounds, I am finding it difficult to do some of these dares again. I have considered in past rounds the various ways that I placed unrealistic expectations on DH - I expected him to do things the way I would want them done/do them....
  • Remodeling woes

    • 6 Comments
    When DH initially told me back in June that he wants a divorce, I made no preparation to have anywhere to move out to. In October, when he told me that he had given it a few months and that his decision was final, I started making preparations to have...
  • R4D22 It’s all about me!

    • 6 Comments
    I was able to spend almost 4 hours studying God’s word and praying this morning. I pulled out two different books that I brought with me, one is a 365 day devotional, and another is a 31 day book of daily prayers. God had a message for me today...
  • R3D18 Praising God in the midst

    • 6 Comments
    It's long tonight.........Today's dare was hard. I cook dinner for us every night. Knowing that DH met with an attorney today, I really wasn't in the mood to cook dinner. However, I came home from work and cooked dinner even though I didn't...

    • 6 Comments
    Tonight I sat down thinking that I would just have to admit that I didn't get the dare done today. I have been on the run all day long and couldn't even remember what the dare was for today. I sat down this evening to read it, and realized that...
  • R3D37 Crying in public is never fun.....

    • 6 Comments
    Today's dare was prayer. I had a fitful night last night, and I called in and took a vacation day today. I spent a lot of time in prayer today, most of it in tears. I have cried harder today than any day since this nightmare began. To top it off,...
  • R3D35 Counsel

    • 5 Comments
    "Plans go wrong for lack of advice; many advisors bring success." After reading today's dare, these words in Proverbs have been on my mind all day. I have been very fortunate to have wonderful Christian counsel during this ordeal. But each...
  • R3D36 Clinging to His Word

    • 5 Comments
    I asked DH what he meant last Tuesday when he asked what I thought. He was basically wanting to know what my plans were. I told him that I didn't have any plans. He hasn’t filed for divorce yet because he was waiting for my house to be ready...
  • Anxious about the holidays

    • 5 Comments
    I know that God‘s word tells us not to be anxious. But I find myself in what I think is best described as an anxious state. With Thanksgiving less than two weeks away, I have no idea what the plans are. In the past, my husband’s family including...
  • R4D16 Christian life is a struggle

    • 5 Comments
    I find myself still praying for the same things that I wrote down during round 1 of this dare. I suppose in a way that's good - it reminds me of Jesus in Luke 11 telling the story about the persistent friend in the middle of the night. But it has...

    A long post tonight....The last 3 days have been a whirlwind. It was good to get home from my sister’s house, and I am glad I got some rest while I was there! After the long drive home Friday, DH wanted to do some last minute shopping that evening...
  • Day 29 I'm living in awe

    • 5 Comments
    Well, I completed 2/3 of today's dare. I prayed for DH by name for a very long time this morning before I left for work. Oh how good it is to be able to lift him and our marriage to our Heavenly Father in prayer. I also was able to do something tangible...
