Hi jgnat, Since you have hobbies, movies, and other fun distractions covered, how about using the 15-second principle in reverse? To overcome procrastination I tell myself that I will do something for 15-seconds and then end up spending a lot more time working on it. Ask your husband what would it hurt to spend another minute or two having a cup of tea (or somthing else that he enjoys) and distracting him by asking him more questions about how he is feeling or help him to feel good about what is disctracting him?
Special tactics during the winter would be to ask him "How are you feeling? Are you coming down with something? Would you like something hot to drink before you go?" Pamper him a little and show him that you care about him, because other JWs won't. Also, if you know that a storm is rolling in the night before, remind your husband that he needs to dress warmly tomorrow because of the storm before you go to bed so that he has time to think about FS in the storm all night long.
Peace be with you and everyone, who you love,
