That said - it's a little stressful, thinking about spending a full week with someone who I usually don't see more than a few times a week. Sure, we've spent entire weekends together - but this is a whole week. Six days; seven nights.
It occurs to me, though, that this is an excellent opportunity to see what we're made of as a couple. As Dr. Maya Angelou once said:

These tips on how to go on vacation without killing each other are excellent, and very timely. Some of them are just common sense for enjoying any vacation (like, "be reasonable about what you'll get done"). But I also think it's a good reminder that it isn't your vacation (meaning, just yours). It's about the two of you spending time together - so the agenda isn't the same as if you treated yourself to a getaway.
