Date night with the hubby. It's not often we get to go out. More often than many, not nearly as often as others.
Grandma is here (ryans mom) so we have a free sitter. We chose a movie (50/50) and sushi.
Movie: great. Not a comedy, tho I laughed often. Not really a sad movie, tho I cried more than I expected to. Touching. Sweet. Worth seeing.
Dinner: sushi at Bamboo. Awesome. Since I'm allergic to rice, sushi is rare. I have to be willing to get red and itchy for a few days. That was worth it. Trust me.
After dinner: beer at Coalition brewery. Maple porter. Yum. Reminded of how we used to go out often and drink much more. Don't miss the bills or the hangover.
Home early enough to try for a decent bedtime. I'm the last one awake, as usual.
Date night means laughing and reconnecting with my partner, talking about nothing and everything. Admitting where we need help and where we can give more.
It also means beer and sushi.
