Okay — those two things might sound like they contradict each other, but I can promise you that the freedom to be spontaneous and scheduling time together all go hand in hand. If your life is anything like mine, it is BUSY — but by carving out special days just to hang out and be together, then that gives you the freedom you need.
My husband and I just celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary on Monday. While those days are always gimme date nights, there are many other days during the year that get left out. I say thanks to things like jobs, life, careers, kids, aging parents, and other things that can fight for our attention, time together can get pushed to the backburner.
That is THE worst thing that can happen in a marriage.
For a marriage to thrive, there has to be that physical connection between husband and wife. Sometimes, life snuffs out the flames, and it’s our job to rekindle that. My husband and I use our date nights to do just that.
Just because we schedule those doesn’t mean that all spontaneous fun goes out the window. We have been know to do all kinds of fun stuff. For instance —
We love to cuddle up on the couch with a blanket and a movie. It’s perfect way to get in some snuggle time, and hey — whatever happens beneath the blankets — stays beneath those blankets!
Other times, we have been known to hop in the car and go to our favorite home improvement store and dream about our dream fixer upper that one day we will own.
We’ve even been known to dress up and go out on the town. Nothing is EVER planned on our date night. We just know that it is our night and whatever happens — happens.
To make sure that I am ready for when the mood strikes, I have found that the K-Y® Liquibeads are my new best friend! K-Y® Liquibeads are inserted once every few days so that when the mood strikes, your body is ready to go without needing extra, messy lubricants.
You simply just take the applicator and one gel bead together like this —
Then you simply pull the applicator handle all the way out and insert the bead into the end. From there it works similar to a tampon.
Very easy – and very doable.
For me, this is awesome, because I have noticed that as I have gotten older, I am having that pre menopause issue of dryness “down there” if you get my drift. This amazing product keeps that from happening so I can totally enjoy our spontaneous scheduled date nights.
You can pick these personal lubricants up at any Walgreens, Target, or like me, at my local Walmart. They are right in the back of the pharmacy, right beside your feminine products. You can’t miss them. Oh — and if you are pregnant or nursing, just make sure to check with your doctor first before using them.
If you plan on keeping your marriage alive and thriving, schedule those special date nights, and then throw out the plans and enjoy being spontaneous!
What about you? What do you do when the mood strikes? How do you schedule spontaneous fun?
