Burning the Midnight Oil

Cups of coffee sit before us.
Papers are scattered all over the dining room table.
Two mouths are muttering about unequal tangent vertical curves and azimuths.
Two calculators are being viciously punched.
Pencils are busy and erasers are busier.

Two pairs of eyes meet over a textbook.
One head is scratched, while the other sports rumpled hair.
No, I haven't physically returned to college, but in a way I have.
Dear hubby is in the midst of a busy semester.
The best part is that we often do his homework and studying together. There is a lot of homework due this week, so we have been spending time together this way.
Poor guy, he can't take a break to blog like I can! He's sitting across from me muttering away to himself while I "visit" with all of you.

I feel for you guys--but you must admit, this is still spending precious time together. So many ways that we can be a helper to our husbands, right? Have a good night's sleep.

Sounds fun, Beverly!
You are such a wonderfully supportive and encouraging wife!
Blessings to both of you,

I love the picture of the two of you sitting there doing homework together - you are such a lovely couple :-)

It must be hard to do working and family and school all at the same time - days just don't seem to have enough hours for this! Keep going Mr S. and hopefully it's done soon.

I'm glad you can help and encourage your husband in this way! As your mom said, there are truly many ways in which we can be helpmeets to our husbands. And I'm sure yours appreciates you SO much!

And as for "unequal tangent vertical curves and azimuths:" more power to ya! :-)

I hope you realize what a help it is to your husband for you to be sitting with him sharing with him in his studies... it is hard enough for him to be working and schooling at the same time without experiencing the feeling of doing it alone...

it would be very easy for you to just whine and say "you're not spending enough time with me" (thus adding more pressure)

But instead you are building a very strong marriage as you do this with him!!!
I commend you for it!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed the imagery you've woven with words.

He's not blogging? That is truly tragic. Hahahaha!

God bless your hubby in his educational ventures.
