Last week a friend and I were talking about our relationships. "How are you guys not sick of each other??!!" She asked me.
"We're just not..." I said laughing.
"You've been together so long" she continued "What the hell do you ever talk about???"
I guess I'm really lucky. I don't know if I believe in "soul mates" but I do know that I'm extraordinarily fortunate to have met my partner for life at age 16.
I thought about that today. We had planned to hike again today, but Mother Nature decided to throw a wrench into the works and it rained - a lot.
So Marc and I decided to take the day and hit some outlet malls. It took 45 minutes to get there and we talked the entire way. It would be mind-numbingly boring to an outsider, I'm sure, but to us talking about places to bike in the coming weeks, talking about extended family, we just truly enjoy each other.
We had lunch out and then hit the outlets. We didn't buy much, but got a few great deals. But we browsed and chatted.
When we arrived back at the cabin it had clearly down poured because both the back and front yards were flooded. I was a little worried about my boys - a strange place and a storm, but they greeted us like we had been phone a few minutes rather then several hours.
They are my good boys!!
The rain cleared and I took them to the beach where they played for a while.
A nice rest day for all of us - but we'll get the hike in tomorrow!
And I will continue to try to keep my blessings in mind!
