Richard and I spent the weekend away. It was his drill weekend, so although he was working, we were both at the same marriage retreat – Strong Bonds. We stayed at the Sheraton in Portsmouth, NH. Nice hotel, with a spa. So of course I booked myself a rose petal milk bath followed by an 80 minute Balinese massage. Heaven.
While he spent most of the conference making sure the attendees were taken care of, the equipment was set up, and the food arrived on time, I sat in the back. Sometimes I paid attention, like when we watched Mark Gungor’s “Laugh Your Way To A Better Marriage.” But I spent most of my time writing in my journal or reading “Under The Tuscan Sun” (again) by Frances Mays.
I’m working on my book, a joint effort with my friend, Teresa Thompson – and between the two of us, it really is turning out to be more of a collection of essays that reflect on love lost, love found, and blending families (and the trials, tribulations, and victories that come with it) We’re both excited in how it’s turning out and how our own writing is kicking it up a notch.
I’m fully over the February Crud. I heard from friends that their crud lasted 2-3 weeks. Mine? Five Days. I’m pretty sure my daily shakes and smart energy drinks played a part in my quick recovery because quite frankly, I don’t have 2-3 weeks to be The Walking Dead, (which by the way is my favorite show and I’m so excited new episodes begin airing tonight!)
I hope you had a fabulous weekend! Care to share? Just leave a comment!
