Soooo it's been awhile. I won't bore you with the details- mainly- work, grad school, toddler. Because of this, my husband and I rarely have alone time that isn't spent sprawled on (separate) couches watching TV and barely mustering up the energy to grunt at each other. I got an email from our Pastor yesterday telling us about a Date Night/Kids Night Out tonight. For $5, you drop your kiddo off and go out for 2 1/2 hours of ADULT FUN! I was psyched. We signed T up, and are all geared up for our date. But then I went back and read the email. And looked further into it. Apparently this is a series called "The Great Date Experiment" where you watch a short video, and then go on a date with homework. I'm not sure about it- and I KNOW my husband would not be into it. I'm tempted to go and give it a shot, without telling my husband that it's not exactly what we thought. But then I wonder, is it counter-productive to start a series that is supposed to grow your marriage with a teensy little white lie? Maybe it will be super awesome and we're just grouchy and cynical. If nothing else, it would give me something interesting to blog about. Otherwise, I'll be writing "SPSS is hard. Heart disease is scary. This going-vegan thing blows."
And, being the rebels we are, we may totally blow off the homework and go furniture shopping. Because we're that badass.
