Old Habits and/or Pipe Dream



My wife and I both played hookey from our work today and spent the day together. We enjoyed each other's physical company, and then we went driving around to a few different places, and ended up at the local bookstore & coffee house. It felt good. It felt special.

Old habits about work die hard. Both of us had a few moments where concern about work crept in, but we both worked to push them aside. These casual times togehter are something we both want to implement on a weekly basis. It will be hard to not let the tendrils of work infiltrate our time together. Yet, both of us felt so much more whole after today that I think we are both willing to put up a good fight to push back work to a more managable and more suitable level in our lives.

I just hope this goal is not a pipe dream.
