Typically, when the kids leave for a night at their grandparents, Lizze and use the time to s-l-e-e-p…
While that’s definitely something we desperately need, we would also benefit from getting out of the house together as well. Money is usually a problem but there are tons of things we can do for free.
Today for example, Lizze and I went for a walk at the park. It wasn’t anything crazy. We just walked and talked until we decided to head home. As simple as that was, I think we really benefited because it was time away together and talking about everything that was on our minds was really nice.
This was just an example of how we can use the time without the kids in a way that will help us to focus on each other, our marriage and even ourselves as individuals.
Going forward, I expect that we will learn more things that we can do to keep making ourselves a priority.
Our counselor stressed again today that we have to focus on what’s best for us and the boys before we worry about anything or anyone else.
That’s not always easy to do but when we live such a fragile existence, it definitely makes sense to make sure that the homefront always comes first.
Without going into specific details of what was discussed, which I said I wouldn’t be doing, that pretty much sums up the take away from today’s session. Again, I’m very open to talking about this so please don’t hesitate to ask questions. ☺
