So with our crazy work schedules, my gym routine, taking care of K-Dub, and cleaning the house, BrittWhitFun and I don’t get a lot of time to spend together. We are constantly on the go and talk on the phone at least twice during the day. It usually is in the morning as I am driving to work and in the afternoon as I am driving home. When you have a child you are always trying to find ways to save money and cut cost but you sometimes are in a desperate need to spend some time alone with your spouse.
This is the dilemma that my wife and I were in. We were in a funk and needed to shake it up a bit. Of course we had to do this on budget. We also had a kid at home and not sitter. So Friday night my wife had to go to Sam’s Club and I had to go to the grocery store. I told her let’s go one a “at home” date. She went to Panera Bread and got some take-out food and met me at the house. I got our groceries for the week and stopped by our local Redbox and got a movie to rent.
After putting the kid to bed, we got our food and popped our movie in and ate. I rented the comedy We’re The Miller” so we laughed almost the entire time. I never get tired of hearing my wife laugh. It’s a cute laugh. We then sat and talked about stuff and played catch up with this weeks events. I had no idea about some of the things going on with my wife. It’s great that we talk and then we headed to bed a little closer and stronger.
I am very grateful to have some time alone with my wife and she is a lot of fun. It is hard sometimes to find the time but I found that in marriage you have to make the time. Even when you have to spend the time alone at home with no sitter.
