I am going to do something special with the wife this year. I have fixed it up so that her parents will take the kids for an entire week and I am going to do a little romantic getaway. It will start out with a maryland limousine service picking us up and taking us out for a romantic dinner. Then instead of going home we will go down a little place my boss has down on the Chesapeake Bay. He usually rents it out, but he sort of owes me a big favor and he is going to let me have it for a week free of charge. Of course I really saved his butt from a bad situation, so it is more like a way to even the score than it is like he is going to do me a favor or something.
