Boy, we're boring!

The house is relatively quiet. Actually it's been pretty quiet since about 1:00 this afternoon.

My sister, Rachel, is on vacation this week...with no plans. So she wanted to take Zachariah swimming for some of her friends from work and their kids/nieces/nephews/grandkids/etc.

It's a vacation for me to have a day without a kiddo around. But I guess in the same respect it's fun for her to spend a few days with her one and only nephew.

I told Zachariah at lunchtime that I was eating left-overs for lunch, then I was going to talk Daddy into taking me out to dinner.

When I asked Matt what sounded good, he couldn't think of anything in particular. We finally decided on a place and had a nice relaxing dinner. I think I had more of my husband's undivided attention than I've had in a LONG time. It was nice. (And I brought home half of my supper for lunch tomorrow...which isn't unusual, but yeah for another meal I don't have to prepare.)

But after that lovely dinner...we had no idea what to do with ourselves. We kind of looked at each other like "What now?" We forgot what to do without a child along.

So, we went to the home improvement store and looked around for some house project ideas. We are usually rushing through there, but it was nice to just look around and linger.

After that, again, "What do we do now?" So we walked around the mall for a bit.

And then we come home to put our feet up (after all that excitement) and watch one of my favorite summer shows - "So You Think You Can Dance".

There is only one conclusion to gain from our child-free evening. Boy, we're boring!

And isn't it lovely? Who would've thought 10 years ago that a night like that would be just what we wanted/needed?

Love nights like that! :)

Sounds like an amazing time all the same :) LOL
I agree with Alli can you imagine that we would ever be happy with just that?

Hope you get a few more so you and the man can have a time together.

Boring is good - no drama, no crisis!

I love the dance show, too.

Isn't it funny how different life is w/o kids around. I never realize just how boring and quiet we are until Chase is gone for the night!

It still sounds like a fun evening! The very few times we've had a night off from the kids > I feel like twiddling my thumbs.

I shudder to think what will happen when they all move off to college .... sob!!
