Flea Market

My husband is accompanying me at the Flea Market (about an hour from home) on Tuesdays and Wednesdays this year. This is my fourth year participating as a vendor at the Flea Market and I have always sat in my booth alone, with the exception for one long 4th of July holiday a couple of years ago.

We are staying in my parents' trailer at a nearby campground. We are getting 2 days/evenings each week of alone time this month. Last week was the first time that we have had any alone time like that since we became parents.

We are beginning to make plans for our "alone activities" (other than the obvious) during the part of the week that we are at home. It is something nice we are looking forward to. Although we both miss Monica and she says she doesn't like being without us those two days, it is something Ken and I have needed for a long time! When you have a stressful medical schedule to follow, you just focus on getting done what needs to be done and then crashing at the end of the day (if its your turn). That doesn't leave much time to just be together and enjoy the company.

Now, we have the chance to learn new things about how we are different and remember what we liked about one another in the beginning. It's something to be thankful for in the midst of trying to find our way as our lives change.

Where is your booth, Lori? The kids and I will try to make it up there, though it will probably be June before that happens. You'll be there Tuesdays and Wednesdays all summer, right?

That is really cool Lori that you 2 are making the most of this time together! And that you get to reconnect. Enjoy each other!

Enjoy your time together. What a blessing that you two can get away.

I am so glad you two have found time to be together. I have been concerned about you two having that "alone time" for a while.

And while Monica may not like it at first, she will eventually see how much good it does her parents, and someday she will understand.

Enjoy each others' company and the fun of dating all over again!

Love you both!
