Now we are older, our lives are busier and we aren't sitting in class together or passing in the hall. It is easy to get caught up in your own day, while your spouse is caught up theirs. Then you come together at night, eat dinner, get kids in bed and collapse from total exhaustion to recharge for the next day. It can be a challenge to stay connected as a couple.
Our solution? Pass notes, electronically. We shoot each other emails back and forth. We leave comments on each others' blog. Many times it is very practical, "Could you please stop for a gallon of milk?" Sometimes it is just sharing our day, "I saw what you're watching on ebay. I like it." Rarely is it filled with juicy bits of anything. No matter what words are in the notes, the notes say, "I love you. I am thinking about you. I want to share my day with you." They keep us connected.
Why not just call? We do that too, some. Somehow it is more fun to shoot little notes to each other, and often phone calls get interrupted. It is easier to type a quick note that we can read when we have a minute. It gives you that "we are stealing a minute for each other" thrill.
It is simple. It is fun. It works to keep us connected. How do you stay connected during the day?
