December is a great month full of celebrations for us! The first day of December we get to celebrate 11 years of marriage! Some time ago, we planned that we'd head out for supper to celebrate 'sans kids'!
Last night, I was just reminding Don of our plans, and here is how the rest of our conversation played out.
C: "Can you remember the last time we went out on a date?"
D: "Well, remember that last time we went to Mulligan's for a late supper?"
C: "Oh, yes. Hmm....that wasn't our anniversary last year, it must have been the year before that?"
D: "Yeah, you're right."
C: "Well, do you remember that one day I needed to run in to Winnipeg to pick up a lens, and you came along, the boys stayed at my parents, and we had supper at the Keg?"
D: "Right, but that wasn't this last summer, that was the summer before."
C: "Hah. You're right."
Oy. Now, I don't say this to complain, but rather to challenge/motivate/nudge you to go on a date!! If you can't remember the last time you and your spouse went out, or, if you clearly remember - and it was in a year other than 2011, I say just do it!
Now, let's have fun: We all need some 'me time'/'we time' once in a while. Leave a comment with what you did on your last date or what you did for some 'me time' OR what you would love to do on your next one! Don't be shy!
And since a post is way more fun with a picture, here are my boys enjoying some 'brother time'!
