couple time

By Tara Zandra | September 7, 2008

Today was one of those blah days. My neck is still killing me and I was tired of sitting around. Usually when I’m in a funk such as this, I need a little more time alone with Chris. So we called up my in-laws and asked if they’d take the kids for awhile. After dropping the girls off, Chris and I went to a local farm store. I was hoping for a nice array of produce and was going to plan my menu for the week around whatever we picked up. But I was kind of disappointed. We only bought corn, broccoli, avocado, and a small watermelon which I can’t serve at dinner because Chris doesn’t eat melons. So it was a wasted trip in one sense, on the other hand, Chris and I got that time together that I needed. We came home to drop off the produce and talked together without being interrupted by munchkins. We also were able to discuss Christmas gifts for the kids since they weren’t around. Eventually we put our parental hats back on and went to get the kids. Time well spent :)

    You did have a free and easy day without the kids around. Sometimes relaxing is necessary.
