Time for a little R&R with the M-A-N

When I say I can’t remember the last time I was alone with with my husband, I mean it. We have two wonderful little kiddos who we love to pieces. But, DAMN!, mommy needs a break! Preferably with Mr. Mancini and a few of those sexy books on my TBR list.

Well…wait no more, the day is here! This afternoon, we will be dropping the kids off with (presumably) responsible adults, and heading to a beautiful, amazing, child-free casino/spa retreat.

One night only, but it is going to be oh-so-sweet. Me and my man, no kids, no responsibilities for a whole 24 hours. Me, slot machines, and a spa. A pool. A hot tub. And did I mention no kids? Oh, and of course my man.

This is a much needed, long awaited getaway. And even if it is just 24 hours, there will be much relaxation, much erm…frolicking, probably a little gambling. Some fine dining, one scheduled couples massage, soaking in the hot tub, swimming in the deep end, and then…probably some more frolicking.

One thing that I think we all forget from time to time is how to relax. We get so caught up in the day-to-day living that we let so much time go by that we don’t even realize we haven’t taken a break.

So, take the time, make it happen. Grab that special someone and plan a little get away today. Even if it isn’t someplace amazing, or for more than a night or two, you still deserve it and you definitely have earned it!

So, I’ll see you later, peeps! I’m off to get my relax on.

  1. So frolicking, Em? I can get down with that. Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do — and since I do a lot — you should have a fabulous time. 😉

    And Em makes a very good point. Couples need couple time. It is the best medicine for keeping a happy, healthy marriage. Yeah, the kids are important, but you were a couple before you were parents — do not ignore what brought you together. It needs to be nurtured so when the stress of babies and — gasp– teenagers start to wear you down, you have that intimacy to reinforce your love for each other. Happy parents are strong parents. I speak from the experience of almost 41 years of marriage (son is now 27) — hubby and I had a date night and I cherished that alone time with my hubby every damn week. The date night also makes it easier to revert back to being a couple when the kidlings leave the nest.
