One night over smothered burritos Cathy took pity on this cryin' Mommy, and offered to watch our kids so Paul and I could take a weekend getaway. I don't think she will ever understand how much this meant to me, and what perfect timing she had.
This has been some of the most stressful months of our marriage. Owning our own business is hard, breaking a leg, Summertime SAD, kids, bills...just being the adult has taken its toll on us. We were in desperate need of "us time", and Cathy was the answer to my prayers.
I had been given a gift card to the Zermatt Resort, and when I looked for reservations they just so happened to be having an amazing special that my gift card covered completely. It was meant to be.
We had a lovely time away. The Zermatt Resort is gorgeous, and did not disappoint. We decided we liked it so much that we would take our kids back to have some fun with us next time.
They have an on site mini golf course, that I totally kicked Paul's butt at. We sat in the hot tub, and went to the movies. We had the most amazing Sunday brunch at Z's, and I will be dreaming of that granola for maybe forever. We took a stroll around the beautiful property, and enjoyed a cupcake at the local bakery. I ordered a picnic dinner that we ate on top of the crater at The Homestead. They had a fun concert, and we ran in to friends there. We enjoyed every ounce of our alone time, and quiet, I might add.
Even though life is hard for us right now, I have the best of the best in my life. Paul is always worried and stressing over us, and I am a lucky girl to have someone that cares so much about my needs/wants.
Our Cathy is a life saver on so many levels. She quietly serves, listens, and supports. We love her dearly, and are forever thankful for the sacrifices she makes for us.
I think we are ready to take on the new school year!
