Romantic Getaway

MrH and I have this friend who just happens to own a beautiful, cabin/home up in the White Mountains in New Hampshire.  Thankfully for us, this friend is an incredibly generous person who will allow people like us to stay in this cabin.  Allll weekend long, just the two of us.  I’m supposed to be packing for it right now.

Near to the cabin is also the best pancake parlor I’ve ever had the pleasure of discovering.  This place is so good, our friend gave us a gift card for it for our wedding present.    Fortunately for us, this upcoming weekend is its last weekend of operation prior to shutting down for the winter.  I might have not gone if it were closed.  We might have to go both days.

I tried to convince MrH that it would be very romantic for me to make pumpkin risotto.  He didn’t fall for that.  He’s not sure he likes pumpkin, unless it’s in pie.  So we settled on tacos.  In pita pockets, just like he’s used to.  I might need to use my feminine charms to settle somewhere more in the middle between those two.

At first we discussed hiking, but the weather forecast predicted rain.  Now it predicts sunshine.  We’ll bring our boots and some good books and board games.  We’ll pack some hot chocolate, too.  I’m not afraid of nothin’!

Our friend told us today that her last guests broke the toilet.  I have secret hopes of using our super-homeowner skills to fix it for her.  Otherwise we’ll have to, as she says, “just lift up the back and stick your hand in to lift the flap.”  I’d rather fix it.

Lastly, we’ve already had the best nap ever while at this cabin.  We were dating at the time and had decided to take the opportunity for a getaway.  We arrived on Saturday, early afternoon, and after turning on the heat, we piled ourselves and numerous blankets onto the couch.  MrH held me and we both zonked out for 3 hours.  Ever since, we’ve had hopes of replicating that nap.  Ahh… romantic getaways.

    hehe, there’s an episode of friends where ross and joey accidentally fall asleep on the couch together and wake up snuggling. but instead of freaking out, they realize that it’s so much better to nap with a buddy so they decide to keep napping together but not tell anyone. of course the rest of the friends catch them and it’s hysterical.

    i’m off to go work on my tv recounting skills.
