Ok, I guess we can call it date night

Willy and I are fortunate in that we are able to make time for activities that we enjoy without our kids, and manage to do so with relative frequency.  We have always been of the belief that time away from the kids (and each other!) is important and necessary.  We have a good network of sitters that lets us play ball or go to hockey games, so we even get to do some of this stuff together, generally at least one night a week.

This is a great way for us to get a break, but I must admit that I am more than a little giddy at the prospect of a night out with Willy tomorrow night.  Between a busy summer filled with travel, the cottage, and baseball, and a decrease in the amount of family (ie FREE) babysitting we have been using, we haven’t been out together for no good reason in months!!  I have never been a big fan of scheduled date nights, but I think this qualifies.  It has been a long week, and I cannot wait for some time with just my hubby.

The problem?  I have no freaking idea what we should do!  How lame is that?  The best that I can come up with is to go shopping for the new freezer and kitchen sink that we need, then head to the Black Tomato for some of their nummie goodness and then swing by Chapters to buy some of the ridiculously cheap bargain books. That is what we do every time we go out, so I am thinking that won’t do.  Neither does Willy,  and we are both wracking our brains trying to come up with any good idea.  I need to find some inspiration, because it is starting to sound like we are in a rut here…
