Once in a blue moon I get to go out with my husband on a date! It always has to be planned in at least a month in advance. As the day starts to get close, you find yourself coming up with all these wonderful ideas of the things you are going to get to do, all of the couple time you will have, all of the kid-free things that are possible!
The girls are packed and ready to go.Everyone has gone potty and the husband and kids are packed in the car ready to go to Gigi and PapPaps. SILENCE! I LOVE IT!!! I get time to myself, at least I think thats what that was? For awhile I just sit. Then I pop on my blog and the next thing I know, its three hours later. I wasted my enitre "me" time on my blog doing absolutely nothing. and it felt great! No guilt, no interuptions, no spills to clean up!
THAT day finally came for me this past saturday. We got up with smiles on our faces and cooked a grandious breakfast for the girls. Little winks and pats on the butt were exchanged. Yay!! What a day this will be! He even let me pick out the movie! I picked Valentine's Day, totally a girly movie.....the next thing I know....we are at the Olive Garden fighting in front of the waitress....
It really stinks when you build up something SO much that when it doesn't turn out the way you want, it can ruin your entire week! My sunday was spent in bed avoiding my husband so we dont rehash things that were said the night before after a few glasses of wine and bottles of beer.
So here I find myself again. Wasting time on my blog...this time I have no date at the end of the evening, total guilt for not getting dinner started, and I think my daughter just threw her glass of apple juice at her sister. Here's to hoping my next "once in a blue moon" will have a better turn out!
