Going away …

First or second weekend in November wife and I make our annual trip out of town to celebrate our anniversary. We started doing this about 10 years ago in an attempt to rebuild our marriage. It’s worked. We went through some pretty dark times. With the support of family and friends we got back on track (read that as I pulled my head out of my butt) and our marriage is better than ever. We used to go at the end of October, but by waiting a week or two we save almost 15% on the hotel. And it’s not as crowded.

One of the things we needed to fix the marriage was time alone. Just the two of us. So every year, no matter what, we take a trip. Well we leave on Wednesdayevening after work or Thursday morning after we get the kids off to school. It’s a well earned and deserved break. Everyone needs time alone with their spouse. You have to have it. It’s a time to talk, share, reconnect … be intimate without the nagging thought of being interrupted by kids or a phone call. After 17 years you’d think we’d run out of things to talk about .. but we do more talking and sharing on this trip than any other time of the year.

I am taking a 1/2 day Wednesday and getting the car ready for the trip and doing all the packing. The goal is to take off after work …
