Can this weekend be saved?
For better or for worse. For richer or for poorer. For college basketball and for sappy, romantic getaways.
Which of these did I NOT sign up for? Sure, the essence of marriage is riding out the ups and downs together, but inflicting a weekend of candlelight dinners and shopping upon your husband? This must be more than a wife can ask.
Actually, no. My wife, Teri, wants to get away to Galena, a cute-as-a-button river town of 3,500 in northwestern Illinois. This onetime lead-mining town seems perpetually posed for an old Saturday Evening Post cover, and I don't mean the cool ones with kids playing baseball. The place is adorable, but not exactly a guy's dream destination.
