You know the romance is dead when the only thing your husband says to you on Valentine's Day is "Do you want to go to BJ's Wholesale Club tonight?"
One of my goals this year is to resuscitate my marriage. It has been hit hard from our separations due to the Army and moving. Plus three kids give us very little adult time. Our idea of a gift is doing the dishes so the other one doesn't have to....Hey, I thought that was a great surprise.
We have forgotten to nourish our relationship. It's hard to figure out where to begin. I feel like we need to start dating again and get to know each other. Right now it seems like we don't have any common interests anymore. The problem with long separations is that as you grow and change, you aren't doing it together. We certainly aren't the same people we were almost 9 years ago when we got married. I'm not sure how we'll rekindle our relationship, and I know it will be a lot of work. It is a work in progress and completely worth it though.
So whether you have a valentine or not, just remember no matter what your plans are, you could be buying paper towels and toilet paper tonight like me. ;)
Happy Valentine's Day!
