I am all for spouses taking separate vacations, as long as they don’t replace couple’sÂ vacations! I am holding down the fort this weekend while my husband is tearing it up in So. UT, getting scraped & bruised & banged up, motorcycle riding with the “boys”. A few days without hubby’s not bad and it makes me appreciate him more.Â Â
It seems like the kids don’t sleep as soundly when he’s not here.Â Both of ourÂ “littles” got up a few times last night and crawled into bed with me. Maybe they feel a little less secure at night when he’s not home.Â Maybe that’s why I stay up late and sleep less soundly, and feel a little more weight on my shoulders for the welfare of my family. Though family is top priority, friends are the family you choose and even adults need playtime with friends!
