It's weird to have no responsibilities. No pull of kids, outside obligations, housework or errands.
Will we have anything to talk about? Who are we away from suburban mom and dad? Is it okay to pamper ourselves and take a time out?
Get up to the room, take in the ocean view, hear the waves, and yes, we definitely start to feel more comfortable taking time away.
Real uninterrupted conversation, what a treat! Ordering off a menu with no regard to what anyone else will enjoy other than ourselves. Staying up late, sleeping in. Riding bikes with no agenda. A walk on the beach.
Reconnecting. Making memories. Returning home refreshed. Ready to embrace the ones that call us Mom and Dad.
