Date... What Is That???

OK, so hold onto something. We actually went on a real live date. Yes, I said a date. Now I know after 12 glorious years of marriage, one would think we would have stolen away some time to be alone. Yes, we have gone to the Caribbean 9 times with other couples, but everything else we have done we have had the λίγο skatullis (Greek slang for Lil' Shits)with us. We figured that why we had them was to create a family, right? And in a few short years they won't want to be anywhere near us. (you know the whole teenage thing). As much as we truly love them we realized that it had been almost a year and a half since we had actually been on a date. Just the two of us. You may ask how this happened? Well it was pretty simple, really. I mean, shame on us for not thinking of this sooner. Our kids had a sleep over/play date at their friends' house, not ours. So the door was wide open and we seized the opportunity. We went and had dinner at the Cheesecake Factory. We actually sat up at the bar and shared an appetizer, ate dinner and laughed like we used to BK, and we had a blast. Then we went home and watched a movie and, well the rest I am not at liberty to share. Suffice it to say date night is in the plans to be a very regular thing... Shew, I needed that.

Very cool!! It's a MUST, and we've also been married 12 years and are so lucky to have sitters for our kids a couple times a month.

i guess my husband and i really must be the only two people that can't stand the thought of leaving the house. but we've been married 17 years... we're practically ancient.
