Kroger Daytona 500 Game


Kroger has an instant win game going on right now. The Daytona 500 You Pick the Winner game. Kroger is giving away over 80,000 instant win prizes. It's easy to play and win. 

Prizes are grocery items added to your Kroger card in the form of an electronic coupon you can redeem in the store. Yesterday I played and one a bag of Cracker Jack. I guess I'll have to purchase more than one so my kids don't fight over the surprise inside the bag.

The Love Dare - Day 8


I'm embarking on a 40 day journey called The Love Dare. Based on the book "The Love Dare" by Alex Kendrick. The book is based on biblical and Christian principles and takes you through 40 daily dares. The dares are done without your husband or wife's knowledge, they aren't to know you are doing this. These dares challenge you personally to take some action daily to improve your marriage. You can view all posts in this series here.

I will post a very brief statement daily so you know what the goal of the day is and post the daily dare. I encourage you however to purchase the book so you get the commentary that supports each day's dare.

Day 8
Love is not jealous

Dare
Burn the list you made yesterday of your spouse's negative traits.

Follow-up comments
What a relief.  That was therapeutic.  I also told him how excited I was that he is up for a bonus later this year.  As a teacher they never get them so this is a really big deal.  The Gates foundation made that possible through a huge financial grant to Pittsburgh Public School district.  When he commented that I just wanted him to buy me something I remembered day one's dare.  I said nothing.  Victory felt good. 

How did you do today?

Day 7
Love Believes the Best
Dare
Make two lists. One for your spouse's positive traits and another that for his/her  negative traits.  Pick one of the positive traits off your list and thank your spouse for it sometime today.  Save both lists
Follow-up comments
I'm embarassed to say that it was easier to list the negative. What an eye opener for me. I must be taking for granted many of the wonderful qualities my husband has and the contributions he makes to our marriage.  That must change.  I must acknowledge them more often.  I am really glad that I'm engaged in this challenge.  I told him tonight how thankful I am that he gets up so early and faces a long commute in order to provide for our family.  He gave me a hug then said "The massage, the phone call, the banana bread, this is all in the name of love right?"  He thought it was because I don't want him to forget our anniversary later this month.  I had to laugh at that one but he is suspicious...

Day 6
Love is not irritable
Dare
Today's dare as written is a little confusing.  I interpret it to be vow to react to tough circumstances in loving ways and contemplate why you may not be doing so.
Follow-up comments
I think that sometimes my motivations are misplaced.  I do something because I want recognition from my husband instead of doing it because it needs done and I'm the one who has the time and/or the skill to do it.  I also need to relinquish some control over things that I hold on to because I'm worried others will do it "wrong".  I need to accept that my way isn't the only way to do things.  Thinking about these things was a good exercise for me.

Day 5
Love is not rude

Dare
Ask your partner to tell you about three things that cause him/her to be uncomfortable or irritated with you.  Do not respond in anger or any other negative way.

Follow-up comments
Ouch.  I don't take criticism well so this is especially hard for me.  I attempted to do the Love Dare several months ago but didn't see it through to completion so I actually still have the notes from our first discussion.  I reviewed those notes, had a 2 second pity party and resolved to do a little work on one of the three items immediately.  I also want be more aware and thoughtful of the other two.  I realize it's the action, not ME that bothers him and that helped me not to take less offense to what he told me.

Love is Thoughtful

Dare
Call your spouse today just to see how your spouse is doing and ask if there is anything you can do for them.

Follow-up comments
I don't call my husband very often at work because he's a teacher.  I called him during his lunch though to check in and see how his day was going.  When I asked him if there was anything I could do for him he said "What do you mean?"  I guess I caught him off guard and I had to give him some ideas!  I feel really good about how things are going though.  I may have bitten my tongue or ignore something he has said or done but I haven't said anything negative to him.

We have only one car right now so I couldn't get away to buy him anything by the time he came home from work.  I baked him a homemade loaf of banana nut bread which he loves.  He was very happy when I gave it to him and asked me to wrap it up so he could take it to work to have with coffee and share with his class aides.
