That is a question that I have been thinking about today. I thought about this because I was thinking of my old roommate. I just talked to him last night and we chatted (via texting) for a little bit. It made me think about our year and a half living together. Having one other roommate which worked out fabulously, from the birthdays to the dinners to the movie nights, to having an additional roommate who did not work out well because he was a d-bag and because he was a thief (allegedly). I sure do miss that guy (the original roomie, not the thief!). I wish that he would move back here, but then again, even if he moved back here would I see him that often? How much do I even see my brother, who lives about a mile and a half away? Not often enough, that is for sure!
Anywho...back to my original thought. Who am I? When I was 18 and had moved out I was a drinker. And I stayed up late and worked a retail job at an awesome music store. Loved my roomies, loved my job and loved my life. Then I started dating my hubby. He moved in and roomie moved out (because his job transferred him to AZ, not because of the hubby!). Still drank, not as much though because classes were harder and didn't really have anybody to drink with anymore! Started working at a different job but still loved my life. We went to concerts, went out to movies, to dinner. It was great! Now, I work at a job I really like, definitely don't drink anymore (maybe 1 or 2 times a year!) and now we don't even go to the movies or out to dinner or to concerts. Even though I really like where I am at right now, minus a few small debts, I mean details! :) I want my hubby to want to take me out to dinner and a movie. I don't want to come home from work and then still have to "work" all evening. I would love love love to really just have the hubby that I first started dating! I want the spark back and can't figure out how to get it there. That's pretty sad considering we've only been married for 4 1/2 years.
Any help would be appreciated! Give me some feedback. How do you keep the spark there (or if not the spark, at least the significant other wanting to do nice things for you!)
And I do want to make clear that he does do nice things for me, but they include cutting the crust off of my pumpkin pie (i hate the crust!) and scraping my windows! I'm sure there are other things, but I can't think of anymore right now!
