I was so excited to get a love letter from Dave this week in response to this letter I wrote a few weeks ago.
I don't think you failed. I think that sometimes we fall into a rut. It's easy to do, it's comfortable until one of us questions it and challenges what we are doing and that usually happens during an argument. I think we are a good team but sometimes one of us feels like we are on the sidelines. I also think we talk a lot about "us time" and "mommy and daddy need a date night" but don't necessarily follow through. Both of those statements are true.........so aren't we failing together? Life cannot only be kids, work, work, kids, work, work, work, crash. This has led us right into that rut but we have made huge strides to make it out in the past. I would like to go on a date that doesn't have to be cut short because we have to get home in 15 minutes. It dosen't lead to a relaxing evening for me. Lets talk and plan so we can have more one on one time and not feel so rushed. I want to work hard to make life easier. I love the times we have together and they remind me why we love each other. I feel this is an absolute necessity to survive our crazy daily life.
I was pretty stoked the other day that you called as I was coming home just to chat. It turned into a great conversation and was very positive. A positive atttitude makes every situation better, even disasters tolerable. That is something I'm trying to emulate about you. You are always positive, the glass is half full in your eyes. Thank you for the many things you do for us and our family with a smile. It makes "hard=easy".
Now I have one more thing to talk about. The Bachelor show is a hoax. It's fabricated maddness. You don't fall in love with someone you just met after one evening. Here's an idea....have a show about people who have lived together for more than 10 years and see what happens!
