Do you ever just feel uninspired, with nothing much to say? Yeah, that’s how I’m feeling this week, blog-wise, anyway. I usually try to get a little bit ahead on my blogging on the weekends, but last weekend presented me with a deal I couldn’t refuse – an overnight date with my husband!
Josh was invited to spend the night with a friend, so Brian and I were going to let the girls stay here while we went out for a bit. He had just left to go pick them up something to eat, when Megan got a call from her cousin inviting her to spend the night. It was obviously providence for Brian and I to get a date night because he and Brianna ran into his parents at, of all places, Arby’s. His parents rarely eat dinner after about 4:00 PM and, even more rarely, fast food.
They invited Brianna to spend the night with them. Yay! Date night!
So, instead of working on blog drafts, writing lesson plans, doing laundry, washing the dishes in my sink, or sweeping and vacuuming up my dust bunnies, I went on a date with my husband. As a result, I’ve felt a little behind all week, but it was totally worth it!
We went to dinner, did a little shopping (I got two new workout outfits and a kettlebell – steps toward getting that last 27 lbs. off), and watched a movie (we rented Inception) on Friday night. Saturday, we went out for brunch and did some window shopping. It was great to spend some time along together and reconnect.
So, what’s been going on in your world this week? Any triumphs to share that might inspire someone else? Any down days leaving you feeling the need for commiseration? Any burning questions that I might be able to answer? The commenting floor is all yours!
