Date Night!

It's Tuesday night so that means it's date night. We haven't had a real date in about 8 1/2months, but we do try to take advantage of the time we have together on Glenn's nights off.

Tonight? Well, he's playing Fable and I'm blogging.

At least for the time being. We are both quite tired. I haven't gotten a chance to sit down at the computer at all today. He hasn't gotten to play his new game since he got his XBox fixed. So, we each needed a bit of time to unwind.

But, date night...yes.

We haven't been out on a date since before Bubby was born. It's hard with little family living close by (and the ones who are close by are busy as all get out themselves). Between that and just the difficulties of the last eight months it hasn't happened. So, we try to take advantage of the little things and the two nights a week Glenn stays up later than the kiddos.

It hasn't been quite as much fun since we canceled our cable. We no longer have On Demand. We used to try and watch movies or catch up on our favorite shows (like The Daily Show or The Colbert Report). Now there isn't much on TV. But, it's nice to just have time to ourselves to reconnect. To talk. To eat a treat. To do what we want and remember we are husband and wife as well as mom and dad.

Speaking of. Gotta go!


  1. I know what you mean about watching TV together. It's funny how much more I appreciate just sitting down and watching a show with my husband now that we have all these kids. :)

  2. Ah. . . it's nice to have a quiet house and time with your husband-- even if you just need to unwind a little!

  3. I agree with Amanda and L. Even if you are not doing the same thing. Soemtimes I count it as a good night even if we aren't in the same room as long as we are both relaxing.

  4. Do you have Netflix? You can do the "watch instantly" stuff on there by plugging your laptop into your tv or by using your Wii.


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I love to hear from you.
