What does romance mean to you? I mean, besides chocolate, flowers and dinner? I’m going to be celebrating my 8th wedding anniversay on September 4th with my best friend in the whole world. Have we had issues? You bet. It happens but I know that we love each other and that is the most imporantant thing. Plus, we communicate. Sometimes he rolls his eyes at me but he listens. I listen to him, too. My husband is a man of few words (as most men are) but when he does talk, I listen. Sometimes I don’t want to hear what he has to say and vice versa. But isn’t that what a healthy relationship is all about? The ups, downs, complete turnarounds? His idea of romance, and mine too, is helping me around the house. When our son was younger he would take a day off and take Brian for the day. That day would be Momma Day. Just me, myself and I. Loved it and he will still take a day with Brian just so I can recharge. *sigh* I don’t need all the frills and customary things that define romance. I never have and never will. Yes, would flowers be nice? Sadly, I’m allergic to most. One day, he brought me a potted plant and I cried. It was my first “flower” that he ever gave me.

When we moved to Gun Barrel City over 6 years ago, my husband started his job on our anniversary and has worked on our anniversary ever since. Ugh! To my surprise he told me this week that he was taking the whole day, yes the WHOLE day off so we can spend our anniversary together. Just the two of us; okay, until we have to pick our son up from school. To me that is romance. He actually took time to be off my work that day, decide what we were going to do and will make it happen. He wants to go shopping (gasp-he HATES to shop) and go to a very nice lunch. Just the two of us. No son, no work, no internet, no nothing. Just the two of us. Yes, a good old fashioned date.

Glad I got my hair cut this week and gasp, I might even wear some makeup. Now, what to wear on that date?
