I hope you aren’t working too hard on this three-day holiday weekend. And is that extra day really for us?! No, it’s just an extra day for catching up on everything, right?
At least that’s the way it seems to be for me on many of these long weekends.
Or…..maybe it’s actually an extra day that’s meant so we can leave the daily minutia behind, and take the family for a trip out of town. Nothing like a three-day weekend to take the family camping, visit the cousins, or go to the beach.
These short trips can be just like mini-vacations. Lots of eating out instead of cooking. Lots of sleeping in hotels or guest bedrooms. Lots of time doing things that aren’t housework. They’re good for the soul.
Now, if you really want to take it up a notch, you dump the kids and make it just you and the spouse.
That is exactly what I am doing!
This weekend, the husband and I are heading south- down to Miami, child-less! It’s a belated celebration of our 15-year anniversary. It was actually several weeks ago, but it got kind of buried behind things like Mother’s Day and Basketball, and other activities. That’s what happens when you’re a parent.
But we planned it out so there would be a celebration, even if it had to wait awhile. And the time has come. This weekend I will be working hard, but at finally being one of those people that I envy. That can get away and steal a romantic trip for two again.
And next week, I will be back, refreshed and better than ever. Well, I will be back anyways.
How about you? Have you and the spouse ever jetted off for a weekend without the kids? What did you do? How was it? Tell me about it.
