When Life is Upside-Down

So life has been so crazy lately that hubby and I have not been upholding our date night.

For the last couple weeks, between my crazy work schedule, family commitments, church activities, and the insanity of the break-in at our house and the aftermath of dealing with the insurance company (etc.), we just haven't had time.

Instead, we've been trying to make time away from the TV and other distractions to communicate. Just talk. About what's been going on at work, feelings, stress, lots of things. Sometimes this happens at dinnertime and sometime it's when we're already in bed, right before we go to sleep.

Having this time just to talk is necessary for us - we are used to knowing everything that is going on with each other and I think we'd miss out on too much if we didn't take a little time each day to just check in with each other. And, okay, I'm nosy enough to want to know what all has been happening during the day. :)

Hopefully things will get back to "normal" for us soon. My birthday is coming up, so there will definitely be one great date coming up soon!

  1. I've decided life is always some version of "crazy." If it isn't one thing interrupting our routine, it's another. That makes it even more important--and necessary--to intentionally plan for and protect our couple time.

    Hope you have a great birthday celebration, Lacy!
