Chris and I are both slammed at work lately. And by slammed, I mean smashed to pieces. We’re both working 15-18 hour days, 7 days a week. And this too, shall pass – but for the moment it is what it is – – and unfortunately, both of us self-employed with our own businesses, we can’t really call in sick to take a break, ya know? As I said, it is what it is.
Our usual 20 minute coffee breaks together 2-3 times in a day has been narrowed down to one 5 minute coffee break. Between work, the kids, the house – there is precious little time left – – both of us really started ’07 out running!
So tonight…he IM’s me on Yahoo and says “hey, babe – – how about a date? We can sneak out of the house – drive down to Wendy’s and share a burger in the parking lot for 15 minutes? We won’t tell the kids, and they probably won’t even know we’re gone!!”
To which I reply, “You are SO romantic and that’s why I love you so…. meet you in the driveway in five!”
