VACATION!!!Jimmie and I have been tackling a major life changing project and for some reason I thought that would go down without a break down. Hmm...not to smart, I know. We have been filling out paperwork and thinking and talking about a major move. While we are both on board and really excited, I think we as humans have issues with change. As a kid, we moved many times. I loved it! As an adult I can look back and see that what I loved was the lack of pressure to really attach, not so healthy. The upside is that I can adapt to a new scene and love meeting new people. Now to combine that with what I know a long lasting, healthy relationship is supposed to look like...see why my head was spinning?
It would only make sense that the next thing I would do would be so out of character for me that Jimmie could not even guess the surprise I had planned for us!! I dropped him off at rehearsal Saturday night and went home, packed, and moved us into a hotel for the weekend. Brought us all that we needed for a getaway and a private Super Bowl party!! It was SO nice to not talk about anything too serious, to take our time getting ready in a nice, no clutter, space. We put a wager on the game with the winner getting to chose our Monday lunch location to end our "retreat"! I can honestly say that I can't remember the last time I spent money like that on ourselves, but that was Birthday money well spent!!
