I do! They are at Maw Maw and Pa's, spending a NIGHT AWAY FROM HOME! This is only the second time since Sophie was born that Roy and I have had a child free night. The first time we got home late and walked around the house talking loudly. Tonight was much less dramatic.
We emailed back and forth throughout the day about what our plans would be tonight, and we had a few options. Most discussion revolved around where we would have dinner. We were torn between Dudley's, an upscale, expensive, buy a bottle of wine kind of place, and Charlie Browns, which has $6 sandwiches, book lined walls, and smoke stained EVERYTHING. We ended up at Buddy's, one of our all-time favorite restaurants. While we were there I was reminded why. I saw older people, first dates, families with young kids, all kinds of people there, and the food is great! I had quick seared tuna on a bed of penne in light lemon cream sauce with whole cloves of garlic and artichoke hearts. Mmmmm. Roy had his usual fried chicken with Tomato Bacon Gravy. I think that, if they would let him, he would just order a bowl of the gravy.
We went to Joseph Beth and quickly realized we would spend entirely too much money, and left. We came home, I took a bath and finished my book (Him Her Him Again The End of Him by Patricia Marx) and we watched Pan's Labrynth and went to bed. Yup, we're awesome!!
But here I am, 1:30 in the morning, writing a blog. This is AFTER I wrote an incredibly long letter to dear Timothy and caught up on some of my blogs.
Maybe that espresso martini wasn't such a good idea after all. Oh well! I can sleep in for the first time in 17 months! HOORAY!!
