The most important thing in the world is family and love. ~ John Wooden

I have had a challenging week physically, and I was beginning to feel like I was just trying to make it from one day to the next.  I was giving everything I had to my students and my responsibilities at school (which I love) and then finding that I had no energy left in the evening to do much of anything.

My husband doesn’t get home from work until after six these days,  so we eat dinner later now.  By the time dinner is cleaned up and lunch is packed (or thought about at least) I am just about ready for bed.  I was beginning to feel a disconnect from my husband and the world.

Today was different.  Chuck and I spent the whole day together.  We ran errands and got some things accomplished around the house. We ate breakfast, lunch, and dinner together. We talked to both of our adult children and more importantly to each other.  It was wonderful!  Tonight I am going to sleep feeling renewed and reconnected.

  1. I often have to take perspective checks on this is my life/this is not the whole of my life. Wooden’s quote is perfect – love and family first. Celebrating how you made the vital time to reconnect, and that you shared this as a gentle reminder for us. 🙂

  2. We get so busy sometimes that we forget to recharge. I’m glad you and your husband had that chance to be together as work and play partners. Keep it up.


  3. It’s interesting that, sometimes, the guy we live with is the one from which we feel the most disconnected! Glad you had some quality time.
