Back to Reality...

Things are never quite what we plan.  Usually, when The Man and I go away, we are chocked full of plans and come home more exhausted than when we left.  This time however, we have gotten what we needed most.  Rest.  Unfortunately, it came at the expense of The Man having an abcessed tooth.  Needless to say, it has been low key.  However, I have been able to do something very special, and that is totally focus on him.  I have been very focused on his needs, his comfort.  It has been pretty special.  We have been able to do some very special things this time out. 

We walked leisurely through old Sacramento which held lots of memories for him, and The Man got us ice cream.  WooHoo.. no paddle involved.  We then had a wonderful dinner.  When we came back, we had a very heart felt discussion as to how we wanted our retreat to go.  We both agreed that we needed time to focus strictly on us, our relationship, Dd and how we want it to improve our marriage.

We had a lovely evening with his family and then spent the next afternoon going to a winery that has the most lovely, yummy, sweet, yeah..  really, REALLY awesome wine.  Purchased what we wanted, shipped it home and then went to his reunion. 

We have had a lazy day today.  He is battling pain, but we are heading home soon.  All in all, it has been a really good time away.
