Date Night Reflections

Last night, for the first time in weeks, we had a regular Date Night. I was reminded why Flylady puts Date Night in her Control Journal: it’s important to spend time together without the interruptions of the world, to get synchronized again. While I loved the holidays and the wedding and the other special events that kept us from having a regular Date Night, I also love it that we are able to get back to our routine.

Date Night started off a little roughly, however, when we realized that our new, no-salary budget did not include any funds for a Date Night. We don’t usually eat out, but we do make a special trip to the grocery store for ingredients for something especially yummy that we prepare at Mom and Dad’s house. Thankfully, we realized this before we left, so Joey grabbed some leftover nachos and I found some frozen shrimp. I took some of our eggs with us and added the shrimp and some rotel tomatoes to the mix. It was yummy, after all!

While we ate, we watched “Julie and Julia,” which Joey have given me for Christmas. This was the sweetest gift because we both so appreciated the strong marriages portrayed in that movie. It was a joy to watch it again together.

Watching “Julie and Julia,” though, reminded me of this blog, which I was inspired to start after watching that film many months ago. In some ways I was glad to know that I had actually begun and maintained this blog instead of just dreaming of doing it. But in some ways, I was kind of, oh, I don’t know, sad or disappointed that my blog isn’t interesting enough or “spicy” enough or broad enough to interest very many people, even after all of this time.
