Break the Routine

Sometimes we get trapped by routine. We do the same thing everyday, day-in and day-out. We are like little robots that get up, go to work, come home, eat, chores, kids homework. By the end of the day, we are so tired, we go to bed and start it all over tomorrow.

As I've mentioned before, this sort of thing can take the fire out of a marriage. Fortunately, by breaking out of the routine, just a little bit, you can start to fix that.

What to do to break out of a routine? Today, try thinking of the things you "used to do". You know, before the kids came. Maybe brushing your sweetie's hair or giving a foot rub. When was the last time you wrote your sweetheart a little love letter?

Well, back to kids and homework.

We love to do little things for each other. I leave little notes on the mirror in his favorite shade of lip stick, he loves to get me little presents.
Yesterday was a bad day for me, so when hubby stopped at the store, not only did he get what was on the list but he found some bubble bath for me, because he knows I like to soak in the tub by candle light when i'm stressed, and well its been a while since i have done anything like that.

I love to make him is favorite food or pick up a favorite snack for him.

We don't do these things every day so they come out of no where. and that makes them even more special!
BUT boy does this little thing do a lot to make you feel loved and thought about.
