Well, I love it when my man has a plan that is. Lately he's been asking me if I want to get his parents to sit so we can go out. Me... I've been a bit of a bump on the log er couch lately. I just want to stay home and watch a flick. Okay so that's my job but sometimes I'm just in a stay at home mood, put your feet, grab a cup of tea and relax. So the answer lately has been "nah let's just stay in and watch LOTR."
My poor put upon hubby decided that was it. He's been working extra shifts and we've had the bedtime battles with O every night so I guess he felt he really needed a break. He announced to me on Tuesday that he had made arrangements with his mom to babysit Wed so we could go out for dinner. How nice was that? I guess he figured I couldn't say no when the plans were already made. Just makes me think how much of a stick in the mud I must have been lately that actually made my husband take initiative and arrange babysitting.
Do you know what I mean? How many men out there really make the plans in your house? I try to get my man to put his 2 cents in but it often is like pulling teeth. He's content to go out and everything, it's just up to me to usually actually make the plans, set the time etc. (Mind you I still had to confirm with his mom and set the time and outline the plan for the evening with the kids to his mom etc) But hey, he wanted to go out and so he set the plan in motion.
So we went out to Moxies. We had a very lovely dinner. Made even lovelier by the fact that we had a gift card from friends so we were able to splurge a little and I supersized my Bellini. Normally, we're not drinkers but occasionally I like a sip or two and I do like my girly drinks. (I just had one)
So it was nice. Then we went to.... (big dramatic pause) Wal-Mart. Yup. You know you're married with kids when you're big night out means that you end up at Wal-Mart afterwards because hey you get to go shopping without the kids and how often do you get to do that.
P.S. Sorry for all the background changes... but this last pink one is too bismally as in pepto. I'm just trying to find one that'll stick. *L*
