Awww, I'm sorry OP....that sucks!
Every year my husband makes plans for just him and I to get away for a weekend or just for a day to DC to visit some nice museums and enjoy a dinner at a nice restaurant on our anniversary, but every year something comes up where the money is needed for something else. What can I say? Our children come first.
We have been married for 17 1/2 years, never had a honeymoon, and have NEVER been able to go out to celebrate our anniversary. We have 3 children and 1 granddaughter - all of whom live with us. Our older daughter is finally getting an apartment, our middle daughter just graduated HS and will be joining the Navy early next year, and our youngest is 16 1/2 and has 2 years of HS left, unless she fails a class or two (again).
We just don't feel comfortable leaving them home alone and there is no one to take them so we have to be patient I guess.
