A Date! A Date!
Rod and I went on a date last night! This will be a date a month for the last two months. I'm stoked! We dropped off our kids around 7:00, found a hoop and played two games of 21 and a game of one-on-one, all of which Rod managed to win. But I put up a fight and not too much of a stink (I'm not always good at losing).
Then we meandered around until we found a place to get a drink (Zellers/Pharmaplus). Found greeting cards for each other and put them back. Bought some toothbrushes and things. Then found a bench, had our drinks, and chatted. All too soon 9:00 rolled around and we had to pick up our kids (God bless our friends who did this so last-minute).
We commented on how like the early days this date was. So refreshing to the spirit. Thanks, God, for the idea.
