Today was a half day at school for students. My own kids went home with friends and my husband and I worked all afternoon. Afterwards, we were going to go home, but some people persuaded us to go out for a drink. Wow, is all I can say. There is something lovely about abandoning your responsibilities for a few hours and just having it be the two of you. It's been a while. Clearly, we need to make this happen more often. I remembered how much fun I have with my husband, and how much he makes me laugh and the little inside jokes we share.
I definitely want to remember that feeling when life presses in around us.
