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.
Yesterday morning my husband and I got our kids fed, dressed, and ready for school. They walked down to the road to catch the school bus and we loaded our ski gear into the truck and we headed to the local hill, just the two of us. We left the lake fog behind and spent the day under blue skies, basking in the sun. Getting our gear on was a breeze because we didn’t have to help three smaller people get their gear on (Or hear cries that ‘It doesn’t FEEL RIGHT) and getting our gear back off was just as easy.
We chatted for the drive to and from the hill, while we rode the chair lift, and while we stopped for lunch. There were no cries from the backseat about whose turn it was for the iPad, there were no fights about who got to sit with each parent on the chair lift, there were no arguments when it was time for a bathroom stop on our lunch break.
(We love skiing as a family, but some days nothing FEELS RIGHT and the day is a little less than enjoyable.)
Our day was pretty perfect and I love that we have the work flexibility to hit the slopes while our kids are in school.
Do you ever get away from it all during school hours, even for a lunch date?
