Last night Hubby and I had a date. And I'm not just talking dinner-and-a-movie date.... we went away. Overnight. No kids. No work. Just the two of us. And we didn't have to get up early to drive to Dallas for a doctor appointment the next day! Talk about an early Christmas present!
We went to a casino where we stayed up way too late (WAY too late!) and spent way too much money. Sometimes I wish I didn't love to gamble so much. But it's one of those things that you either love or hate, and Hubby and I both love it. For the two of us, though, it's like golf. When he's not doing well, Hubby does not enjoy either one. I have fun whether I'm winning or not (of course winning is more fun - both in gambling and golf!).
Our kids stayed with friends, and I'm so blessed to have this family in my life. Not only because they have kids my kids' ages and they all have fun, but because I know they are going to be in good hands. I never worry when they are with them, and more often than not, we have to drag them away. I'm thankful for K & D opening their home for the night to my kiddos, and I'm thankful for my kiddos being on their best behavior.
Despite what happened at the casino - lucky, lucky me.
