A Need To Get Away

I don't know how you feel about it, but I think this winter was long, way too long. After spring actually arrived, we had a few days where it hit the 60's, but then the temperature dropped way down again. Shoot, just two days ago, April 6th, I looked out the window to see it was snowing again!

I'm so ready for this weekend. They're calling for it to be nearly 80 degrees on Sunday ... and it can't come too soon for me. I've got cabin fever and I need to get out for more than just groceries, the chiropractor, or the gym for my workouts. Better yet, I dream of kidnapping Robert and going far, far away, entirely out of the midwest, somewhere with no computers or phones. A Caribbean cruise would be nice; or maybe the Florida Keys; or even a romantic road trip down the coast, stopping now and then to walk a beach in my barefeet and holding Robert's hand.

It's so important to get away now and then. We need to recharge the love batteries, put aside the "me" and the "I", and make sure we don't lose sight of the "we". Otherwise ... well ... here's a little tease about what could happen ...

We Need To Get Away
by CJ Heck

Have I told you lately
how good you smell
when the shower
finally spits you out?
I can't remember
the last time, but
it wouldn't surprise me,
considering how much time
we actually get to spend
alone together these days.
I do know I remember
how intense we used to be.
We need to get away,
just the two of us,
before we grow any ruts
in this relationship highway.

Let's go somewhere,
before talking dirty
really means:
"You doing a light load?
Can you grab my pj's
on the back
of the bedroom door?"

Before wanna catch a quickie?
really means:
"I'm pooped. Wanna take a nap?"

Before Oh God, I'm coming!
actually means:
"Don't nag me, I'm almost ready!
Go and start the car."

Let's go somewhere, while
Honey, that was fantastic
still means more than
a Sunday Scrabble win.

It's not too late.
Oh yeahhh ...
I remember.

Have a great weekend, everyone! ~CJ
