As I’m sure you can imagine, Lizze and I don’t get out much. What I mean by that is we don’t get out by ourselves very often.
It’s tough not to be able to spend some alone time with your spouse or partner because you’re always wrapped up in the kids.
Last year we had decided that even if we can’t get away, at least we can dedicate some time to each other, at least every once in awhile. More often than not, these plans fall through for one reason or another.
However, tonight Lizze and I hung out and had some ice cream and watched our new obsession on Netflix.
Last year, Lizze and I watched the entire series of Lost. We don’t have cable or anything so we have to wait for it to become available on NetFlix. We watched that show and finished the entire series in a few weeks.
I was personally devastated by the way Lost ended.
Since then, we haven’t been able to find a show to switch over to. Sure we have watched the entire series of King of The Hill more times than I can remember but we haven’t found anything that really motivated us to sit down and watch it regularly.
However, we recently began watching the show Supernatural and we are freaking addicted. Lizze and I steal a few hours a night, as often as possible, so we can watch 2 or 3 episodes. We are currently in the middle of season 2.
I’m sure some people would hear this and think Lizze and I are pretty sad to think this qualifies as quality time together.
To them I would say something like, as special needs parents we don’t have the luxury of spending the typical quality time together. Instead we chose to spend whatever time we can find with quality people, each other. Sometimes that all you get. Honestly, it enough for us.
I hope you all put there have your own version of quality time. Whether your single or with someone, it’s so important to have some time to yourself or with your significant other. We are living very stressful lives and if we want to survive, we need to take care of ourselves.
It’s not selfish, it’s survival.
