We are going away in a few weeks for a Marriage Retreat. No our marriage isn’t in trouble. Yes the Army offers these amazing retreats for us to go on. Since living here in Germany I have heard nothing but good things about Edelweiss Lodge and Resort. I have been wanting to go but think the prices are a bit steep. We haven’t been willing to pay that.
This will be our view pretty soon. I couldn’t be more excited.
From what I have seen from others who have gone it is nothing but pure beauty. Paul said so your bringing the little camera. I laughed. I am bringing the big camera to capture the sunrise/sunset. I plan to be outside as much as time allows. Except for the couples massage.
What am I hoping to get from the marriage retreat. I am not sure. I have never done one. Never thought I would be doing one. The price tag of free was fantastic. I told Paul last night that I hope they offer a class in ” Why I shouldn’t eat the last chocolate bar when my wife is PMSing which is worse than when she has a period because she might murder me.” Took him a second to figure out that I went looking for the 50 cent 2 piece Godiva Milk Chocolate Bar. That he ate and didn’t tell me he did. So that made me madder. I had to settle for an orange. Not nearly as heavenly as that piece of candy. The candy hear is so sweet you literally take a bite or two and put the rest away for another day. He will be replacing my stash.
In all seriousness I can’t wait to see what I learn. I a bit uneasy since it is run by the Chaplin. While I have my beliefs it has been a long time since I stepped foot into a church. Our Chaplin is going. He is laid back and funny so I am hoping it stays that way. It is nice because the kids can go with us. They do things all day long with Daycare that is provided and then we gather them to do what we want. Counting the days now!
