Caught Off-Guard: Date Night Tonight
"We're going out tonight" read the text message from my husband. We've been talking and talking for a while about how to squeeze in a little time together without the kids, but life has been busier than ever for us. It all came to a head this week when I confessed feeling so distant, given the various commitments, our respective work/school needs, domestic chores.
Wtih the generousity of nearby family, we suddenly have a couple of hours away tonight. But: what to do? Go to a cafe and talk? Maybe take a walk? Go see some art or spoken word and get inspired? Go to a bar and ... hang out? Find some live music? Feeling indecisive, I am inclined to just stay home and catch up on sleep.
If you had a couple of hours, just you and your partner, what would you do?
