Step 3: Home Study, Part 2

Our homework for this meeting was about our marriage. There were questions like: "What do you like most about yourself?", "What are the strengths of your marriage?", "How long was your courtship?", and my favorite: "If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?".

My answer? "I would not worry so much, and I would get rid of my anxiety. I would trust God more, and stop trying to do everything on my own."

My husband's answer? "Nothing."

He's perfect. Just ask him.

We were laughing about it with our social worker. She said she chuckled when she saw his response.

This meeting was much more relaxed (I mean, I was more relaxed) and we laughed a lot. We talked about our jobs, infertility, living together, and how men are different than women. Josh is incredibly laid back, while I am not. He was saying that he doesn't understand why I can't relax, and I was saying that I don't understand how he can always be so relaxed.

Our social worker made the comment that women always have so much going on in their brains and men focus on one thing at a time. She said that looking at Pinterest (See! I love her.) is like looking at the female brain. There are so many things going on at once, and they're all different, and we're thinking about all of them.

It reminds me of one of my favorite Friends clips. The one right after Ross and Rachel kiss.

This is the difference between men and women. It couldn't be more accurate.


  1. I love it! You're such a Friends junkie now.

    Glad it's all going well. =) SuperBaby will be here very soon!

  2. WOW. Social Worker totally nailed it on the head. My brain is totally like pinterest, only I generally don't have the nice neat boards and it isn't very pretty...
    That made me laugh that your husband said he wouldn't change anything. Such a man thing.
    Also, all your Friends references make me so happy. I love Friends. Always & Forever!
