I miss him

Mr. Schroeder has a job that gives him the opportunity to travel out of town quite a bit. For awhile, he was going to Idaho almost every other weekend to do a job. We sat down and talked about how it was hard on our marriage, and that maybe he should only take the jobs that would help us out in a way we needed it to. He works with my brother-in-law and I think they make a pretty great team. This week, they took some jobs out in Vernal, 9 HOUSES, 4 hours away. This was his load of carpet and pad.



Can you believe it? Get this. That’s not even all of it. It blows my mind how incredibly hardworking he is. A few days before he went out, he told my brother in law that he wanted to go rake leaves at my parents house because my dad had a hard time doing it. My brother-in-law told him he’d help him and they went out there, and raked leaves for hours. There were so many bags full (I think there were 24 big black garbage bags) by the end of the night. 



It’s certain little acts of kindness that make me take another second and think, “Wow.” I really did marry an amazing man. For a minute, I reminisced back to a time in my life where I easily could have married a man who didn’t know how to work. And I didn’t realize how big of a deal that was until I met someone who KNEW how to work right, correctly, and be proud of his work. Trevor told me something last week that stood out to me. “I know I take  a little bit longer than a lot of carpet installers to do my job, however, when I’m done, I look at it and say, ‘Dang! That’s my work!’ and I’m really proud of what I just did.”  I’m proud of him, too. I just miss him. And can’t wait for him to come home to me.

  2. When Jake was traveling to Mexico during the summer it was really hard, but it helped knowing that at least my husband knew how to work, and wanted to work. You have one amazing guy! Don't ever forget it. And when it gets lonely just remember how hard of a worker he is and how much of an example he will be to your children one day. Also text me and we'll go do something! haha. Love ya girlie!

  4. This reminds me a bit of our life and my husband. While Ryan's work isn't physically exhausting, its mentally exhausting. He never complains about me not finding a job yet and never complains about having to work. He works so hard and gets paid so little, but doesn't complain. Often after his almost 12 hour day he comes home and does more work. Then on top of that he voluntarily decided to build me a photography website because he wants to help me live my dream. He's a hardworker and i love it about him. There's something so great about a man that works hard, isn't there? Glad we got ourselves such good ones.

  5. That is so awesome :) You married a good one! When Daniel and I were dating, and we were in a fight, I was always so surprised that every Wednesday, there he'd be, raking up leaves, even though we were in a fight. Great men we have!

  6. the boys are TOTALLY in to raking leaves. i told jackson that they got 24 bags and he freaked out! that's a lot. hopefully there will be more leaves next weekend for my littles to help rake up. we don't have too many leaves, so they're always cleaning up the neighbors leaves.
    i see snow on the mountains. noooooo. not ready for that.
