We have had a few conversations here and there to discuss what we can do to help our relationship move in a positive direction and I thought I'd list a few of our solutions for others to read about in case they themselves stumble upon this situation.
- Movie Nights: We subscribed to Netflix. It is cost effective and is delivered to the mailbox to erase the time consuming drive to a local movie store. We will be taking turns picking our movies.
- Combining Family and Girlfriend time. We've realized that these two worlds do not need to be seperate. It also pleases both sides and Chancho doesn't have to be torn between the both of us.
- Less Sleeping. This is still a work in progress, but Chancho did agree to give it a try with only sleeping 8-9 hours, instead of 12. This should open up a big chunk of time that can be spent with loved ones.
- Quality Time. The time we spend together is more about us and less about extra activities or useless doings. When we are together it should be about us interacting and really connecting.
It is still a work in progress and I have realized that this is something we need to work at together and leave open a line of free communication. Once that communication stops, all will go haywire. Hopefully these few acts will benefit us and others that need some options.
Thanks once more to everyone!
