My husband and I went on a date last night. We got a sitter, got the Monkeys in their jammies, packed up Abby with us, and took off. Oh, how good it felt. It doesn’t matter what we did, or where we went- we just drove around for a long time, enjoying the quiet. We don’t get much quiet these days. Conversation was organic, and sprung up as inspired, rather than smushed in between kid-tastrophes. How nice it was to be away for a few hours.
Abby slept most of the evening, delightful little doll she is. We got a bite to eat, did a little shopping in peace and quiet, and when we got home, the Monkeys were in bed, sound asleep. The perfect Saturday night.
