I'm off to beautiful Vancouver for a few days...how about that! It's an amazing thing, and even I can't believe it's true, but in 11 years of parenthood we have never been away from the kids overnight, together. He has been to conferences, and I have been to Victoria once, and to Toronto once, and that is it.
So now we are going to spend two TWO nights in Vancouver. What's the occasion? Birthday? Anniversary?
The Davis Cup. Pro tennis in all its romantic glory.
Don't be putting any eyebrow-waggling in the comments, either. If you're a parent you'd know that the true beauty of "getaway without kids" is "watch what you want on TV" and then "sleep through the night".
