I know it’s been a while, and I’m sorry about that. There are a few reasons for my absence; the biggest one being I’ve been so busy with homework I haven’t felt okay with sitting down to write for my blog if I still had homework to do. I have the morning to myself because of the holiday and school being out but Janai is still at the house with the boys.
Anyway, I just wanted to tell you all about the wonderful weekend we had. Particularly Saturday.
Tyson and I actually went on a date. A date with no kids and no friends! I realized, while on this date, that we haven’t done that since our anniversary in July. But I got to thinking today and we actually did go out by ourselves in October to a UGA game but I was stressing a lot of the time about leaving the boys with my in-laws. (Not that I don’t trust them to watch the boys. It was more I didn’t trust the boys to behave for them.) I forgot how much I missed spending alone time with him. There was no stress about keeping people entertained, putting on my ‘happy face’ for our friends, or worrying about the kids. It was easy and fun.
This is mostly my fault I think. I love going out with our friends and having our friends over. I really crave adult interaction because I don’t get much of it since I don’t work. So when we do get a sitter 99% of the time we are going out with friends. Now, I understand we don’t get to do this very often because sitters are expensive and we don’t have family around that I would feel okay asking to watch the boys but maybe more than once ever 7 months would be good. ahahaha I am definitely going to make more of an effort when my parents come to visit to have them take over for a night so Tyson and I can go out. I know they wouldn’t mind and who doesn’t love free babysitting?
Anyway, Tyson surprised me with a babysitter to go to the tattoo convention but neither of us could decide on a tattoo so we decided to go see a movie and get dinner and drinks instead; such a simple night with very little planning. And truthfully, I’m so glad we did it this way. I had so much fun just being with my husband. I definitely need to make more of an effort to do this because I have been in such a better mood the past two days simply because of our 4 hours alone.
It’s crazy what a few hours can do for your mood!
Anyway, for all of you couples out there, with or without kids, go on a date. Spend some time together!!!
