    I have to share .... husband woke me early to "feed" me my medications & then let me sleep for another 3 or 4 hours. When I woke again husband asked me to get showered & dressed ~ we were going out.

    He wouldn't tell me where or give any details. Casual dress was fine (which is all I own right now).

    husband headed to the local mall to get his glasses adjusted, then we wandered about a bit. He had to pick up a cable for his cell phone. Fine. He bought me a double latte & we wandered about until he led me to a jewelery store.

    Ladies, he bought me a new wedding band :kisses:. I haven't been able to wear my wedding ring since last November. husband did all the research & had picked out a couple of bands he thought I would like before we got there. The sales lady worked with him & got him the best deal she could. She was a real sweet heart. When husband put the ring on my finger she took a picture of the two of us.

    After that husband took me out to a lovely late lunch. We're home for the rest of the weekend - I'm painting, husband is busy working on a newsletter he needs to get out. Later we'll play a game of maj jong if I don't fall asleep first.

    Either way, it's been a lovely day. Not because of the ring, but because of the time spent together alone. Relaxing, quiet time. Time spent talking & enjoying each other's company. :couple:

    That sounds so sweet. Glad you had a nice day. I am afraid by the time me and my husband finally have our next minute alone together we might both be so shocked we won;t know what to say or do or how to act, LOL.
    I am so happy for you, glad you went----how exciting about the new ring!

    My husband has grown in the last 2 years - since he went into rehab. He's the man I married almost 20 years ago.

    Yesterday was just as quiet & delightful.

    husband & I have been through all the good, bad & indifferent times. There have been times when I would have left - he would have left. I always recall the promise we made so many years ago, as does husband. The slate gets wiped clean (after whatever it takes) & we move on.

    We spoke of being at the beginning of a new phase of our marriage. Even though we still have tweedles to raise & get out on their own, we've learned, for the most part to detach from their chaos, & concentrate on being a marriage, then parent centered home. Not a child centered home. It has helped the health of our home life tremendously.

    Thank you all - I plan on many more days like Saturday. by the way, never did get in our game of mah jong.
