My husband had the day off today and we spent the day entirely alone, just the two of us with only a phone call from our daughter, who lives out of town, and a phone call from our middle son who is traveling back from New York with his fiancee. Other than that, no outside calls, no visitors, no place to go. It was great.
We did go out for awhile. We went to F.I.M. to look at spas, and then we went to a local Mexican restaurant for a quiet meal together. We basically did nothing but be together, and it was good. Sometimes we just need to slow down and relax and focus on each other. He is my best friend in the whole world. With him I feel safe and calm. We are trying to figure out a way to slow down our lives, and live more simply in order to enjoy each other more as we continue to grow old together.
