      My husband and I are at that difficult time in our lives when we are almost ready to retire, and the stress level is high with adult children and their issues, as well as aging parents. The time we spend together is usually taking care of necessities. We decided that this year, we are taking a vacation just to do it, not because we want to see family or have work responsibilities, but just for us. We are looking forward to it!
