Lynda Loveland: While we were away

Posted August 14, 2013

I can’t say enough about the benefits of taking trips alone with your spouse.

My husband and I just returned from a 12 day Alaska trip with Holiday Vacations and it was FANTASTIC! The state was more beautiful than I imagined. But even cooler than that, I got to spend 12 uninterrupted days with my husband! You know how crazy and hectic it is raising active kids. Taking a break from that did wonders for my heart and soul. 

Yes, we worried about what was going on at home. But the kids were in good hands with my mother and my in-laws. Lynda with her husband on their Alaska vacation

I was a little worried though that our offspring would try to pull something while we were gone. Turns out my oldest stepped up to the plate.

We found out later that Campbell tried to leave school early a few times because she was “sick." The first time she had growing pains … in her thumb! I give her an “A” for creativity. The next excuse was much bolder. She said her stomach hurt and that her appendix burst so she needed to come home.

Thank you, Dr. Campbell, but take your butt back to math!!!

    Now that you're back I hope you'll stand up to your offensive new cohost on MIX 101.5. I am disgusted that you would allow him to talk about men wearing pink the way he did. I was thoroughly offended, and let me tell REAL MEN DO WEAR PINK. If you think otherwise, please tell my sister who has stage 4 breast cancer that they don't. THANK YOU.

    Glad to hear you had a wonderful time. I still have yet to get to Alaska as my husband is from Wrangell, AK. I've been married to him for 23yrs and he hasn't taken me yet :), maybe one day.

    Lynda, I'm so glad you enjoyed your trip. While my hubby and I haven't had 12 consecutive days away, our weekends away together have been wonderful. And our kids loved being spoiled by grandma. Glad you reminded parents that it's important to have couple time!
