I wrote a long post and then somehow erased it. Damn.
Basically, I was rambling on about what a typical week night looks like in our house. We are both exhausted. We eat dinner, then lay in bed, and watch TV. That’s it. No, really. That is the long and the short of it. Sometimes our laptops are out while we partake in marathon TV watching. We are amazing multi-taskers over here.
I don’t really have a problem with our typical evening, because lately my motivation to look presentable after 8 p.m. on any given week day is not so good. But, since we started the-fertility-treatment-that-shall-not-be-named, we’ve been in a slump. Slumps in a marriage are when the term “date night” starts to get thrown around.
Ahhhh, date night.
L and I have reinstated a weekly date night. The best part is that it is the least fancy date night that ever existed. We agree on an evening. It varies from week to week depending on work schedules. Then we pick up some sandwiches for dinner, and drive to the beach to watch the sunset. It is about as cheap as it gets, and as simple as it gets.
I have my best friend by my side, good conversation, and the ocean. So far that is what is getting me through some really tough times.
