I miss my husband. I know I shouldn't complain because he hasn't really "gone" anywhere and I see him every day but I never get to spend any time alone with him!
Cue petulant foot stomping.
My parents won't take any kids who need butt changes and Hubby's parents' response is always "well WE never go out alone"....That may not be a problem for them since they don't particularly like each other (we've given them an open invitation to drop the girls off and they never have) but I happen to really really like my husband and want to be alone with him.
It's not even for sex reasons-we still fit that in three or four times a week-I'd just really like to have a conversation with him that doesn't get interrupted 19 gajillion times. I'd like to eat with him as opposed to in shifts. I'd like to walk somewhere and hold his hand if not simply because it's not covered in boogers.
I love my kids, I really do. I love spending time with them and I wouldn't trade my days with them for anything.....but I also happen to be madly in love with their dad and would love to sit down and have a nice chat with him. ALONE.
Yes, I know that we can do this when the kids are older, but I am feeling particularly whiny right now and with all the stress eating away at me I just want to run away and spend an afternoon with my best friend (that would be Hubby). The last time we were alone together was in November 08, and that was for about an hour. [We ran errands for our anniversary (woo!).] Even that little time spent, sad as it was objectively, was fun to me because it was just us.
I guess we'll just do what we always do when we need some time and put the kidlets down at 6 so that we can watch a (regularly interrupted) movie in (relative) peace, but I still want to get away with my Hubby before I'm too old to have any fun with him or too stressed to care.
