A Fun Run-Around

With Christmas fast approaching, everybody is focused upon buying gifts, decorating the house (if it isn’t already done), cooking, and all the other preparations that go with celebrating a major holiday. Often, in the midst of all that, it’s hard to find the time to breathe, let alone take a moment out for yourselves. That just means you’ve got to be creative.

Day 60 – We’re going to combine two things together and make a little bit of a game out of it. Hopefully, you’ll both get a laugh out of it, and you’ll also get an hour or so together.

Start off by buying your wife a small, romantic gift and wrapping it. Then, pick up a $10.00 gift card for her favorite coffee shop or ice cream parlor. Finally, prepare a few notes for her:

  • The first note should say something like: “I love you with all my heart. There’s an envelope for you over the washing machine.” Place this one on her pillow on the bed.
  • The second not should say something like: “I think you need to take a break. Oh, and while you are taking your break, grab the note that’s on top of the fridge.” Place this one on, or tape it to the wall above the washing machine.
  • The third note should say something like: “You are very special to me. There’s something special waiting for you on the front seat of the car.” Place this one on top of the fridge.
Place the gift on the front seat of the car, beside you. Send her a text message, telling her that there’s something on the bed she needs to see. When she shows up at the car, take her to the coffee shop or ice cream parlor that you’d bought the gift card for. Relax and enjoy some time together.
