I am fortunate enough to have a friend who has three children with kids almost exactly our kids age. Fortunate because not only does Natalie understand a lot of the issues we go through, but also because we've decided to start watching the other ones' 3 kids so that each couple can have "date night" and reconnect with their spouse without having to spend a fortune on a sitter for the night. Trading babysitting duties is awesome...especially when the kids play so nicely together!
So, last night after work, Chuck and I dropped the kids off at Natalie's and headed off for a few hours of peaceful solitude and birthday fun!
We stopped at Popeyes and got some spicy chicken (their spicy chicken is yummy!). We don't get it often since it's about 25 minutes away...and it doesn't seem worth the drive for fast food. We usually would have gone out to a nice restaurant but we were on a time schedule because we had 7:00 pm reservations for
If we win the lottery (fat chance in hell), we're going to build a nice house with a cedar hot tub/sauna room. Because I lurve hot tubs. It was so nice and relaxing. Maybe even a bit too relaxing as our legs felt like jelly when we got out.
But we sat and talked uninterrupted and it was so wonderful. I didn't want to spend a lot of money (since money is on the short side of things recently) so for an hour and half of solitude, relaxing, and some flirting and fun, we spent $35.
Not too bad for a yearly birthday treat.
