I can relate. Because of certain circumstances, we're not legally allowed to let the kids out of sight other than school without prior authorization. So on those days when we do get a night off together (about once a month for us), it's sometimes hard to connect because our established routine is so vastly different. I think the key is this:
On goes the Yankees game and off to facebook.
If you know ahead of time that you're going to have the evening together, take advantage of it. You don't have to bonk like rabbits or anything, just find a way to spend some time together. Play a board game, make supper together, check out the worst movie you can find on Netflix and make fun of it together. It doesn't have to be anything overtly sexual. Just finding a way to reconnect with your wife will be enough.
