I would like to echo SoulShine and add to my previous "what we are doing for R" comment. :)
Yesterday was one of the best days we have had! Granted, we are only about a month out from DDay, and I wish it hadn't taken this amount of pain for us to realize how much we mean to each other. WH and I have been together 5 years, and he has worked pretty much every single weekend (yes Saturday and Sunday) this entire time. He just started a new job in which he pretty much has every Sunday off and some Saturdays. I can't even begin to explain how therapeutic it is to just have TIME together! We went to brunch yesterday, and spent 3 1/2 hours lingering over our food, mimosas and each other. Neither of us touched our phones, and we had an amazing conversation talking about so much from our past, our present and our future. After brunch, we deep cleaned and detailed my car together. This made WH happy because my car was pretty dirty from going to the beach recently. After that we planned our meals for the week, grocery shopped and then did laundry. It seems pretty typical but chores are usually something I do a lone when he is working on the weekend, so it was much more enjoyable to bond over it and just spend an entire day being a "team"!
I agree that when I see couples on their phones at dinner or out together, it reminds me of my WH and I, and I am so thankful we have had a wake up call (wish it would have been something less painful) but we have committed to everyday making it a point to really connect with each other!
The night ended with us laying in bed and talking for another hour. I really didn't think much about the A yesterday at all which is a huge relief. It's hardest for me when I am away from him like today being at work. :( Great weekend though! Me: BW, 28
Him: WH, 28
DDAY 7/4/14 TT till 7/18/14
