with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
When I returned from my trip to California I was refreshed, renewed, rejuvenated. Between work-related trips and fun-filled get-aways (such as the California one) I get the heck out of dodge a whole lot more than many Moms seem to do. And also, a whole lot more than my husband ever does.
My hubby, in all of his wonderfulness, takes care of our three kids on the many weekends that I go away with nary a complaint. OK, fine. He teases me a bit. My response upon returning from California was that he needed to book a trip. Correction. He was ORDERED to take a trip.
This weekend he and his closest Man-friends are renting a cabin at a local ski-hill. They will ride their snowmobiles, drink beer, get a break from the daily routine of family. Us wives will hold down our respective forts.
When my kids were babies this would mean that I would be trapped in the house with a little peanut chained to my chest. However. My kids are getting older. The plan for this weekend is for a small group of my Best Girls (those of us wives left behind, plus a few more) to go to a wine Seminar and then to catch an Irish band in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. I plan to embrace my Irish heritage with every fiber of my being. Green beer excluded.
In light of the weekend, tell me what you do when your spouse is away. Do you stay home? Or do you go out and shake your money-maker (I’M KIDDING) (SORT OF).
