I guess it's a date then

Hubby is not the type to normally go to the movies. When I ask him about it, he'll usually brush it off and say for me to either call up one of my friends or take the children. By the time he has said that, I've really lost interest in going. I told him that he was missing the point and that I wanted me and him to go together. Most times, he'll sigh and then say he'll go, but that is not what I really want. I want him to be willing and joyful to go, not like I'm making him go. Other times, he plans stuff for the whole family, not just the two of us.

Well, I guess you can say I almost fell off my rocker when hubby mentioned to me that he wanted to go and see a movie with me. Ok, that is not a good way to describe how I felt. Let me put in another way. It was the feeling when you eat a peppermint patty and get that cool sensation. So, I asked him if he was pulling my leg. He said no. He had it all planned out. (10 points for hubby, because he normally would just say whatever I wanted to do) He wants to go and see the movie, "Think like a man" on this Friday. He said he will meet me at work when I get off at 4:00, then we will go and have dinner and then go to the movies. I felt like a kid at Christmas time opening up a gift that they have wanted like for-e-v-e-r!

I paused, and asked him what was the catch. He said no catch. I paused again and asked him where were the children gonna be, he said at home. Shut the front doe!!! So the children were talking to each other and said they guess they are on their own on Friday to find something to eat since the parents were going out on a date. I said, "We are not going on a date, we are just going to go and get something to eat and then a movie." Our 18 year old daughter said, "Um, mom.....if a guy picked me up and took me to dinner and a movie, oh yes, it's a date." I looked at our 16 year old son and he nodded in agreement and said, "Yeah, mom, she's right." Well, I guess it's a date then and I am so tickled and excited at the same time. I can hardly wait.

  1. Enjoy your date! It doesn't take much to make us happy does it? I'd appreciate a date night at least once every six months. LOL!
