Our 8th anniversary is on Tuesday and we usually go away for the weekend, but this year we aren’t (no takers for the kids). I’m very disappointed about it because it’s actually the only time we get away alone. We almost couldn’t find someone to watch them Tuesday either. Thanks to Erin and my brother we can at least have a nice dinner.
Don’t get me wrong, we love our kids to death, but sometimes we just need a little alone time – which we hardly ever get. Only about 3 dates ( only about 2 hours) a year isn’t really anytime to really bond witht the person you are going to spend the rest of your life with.
I guess I’m just feeling sorry for us now and I shouldn’t be. We do have a great marriage and I am blessed with the most wonderful husband in the world. We are happy and that is all that matters.
