Date Night

The other night I got an earful from one of the night nurses.  She is a divorced mother of five.  We had talked about the kids – I always talk about my kids.  Then she asked about my husband – well, I see him in passing as we change shifts at the hospital.  So I got a lecture about keeping a marriage alive.  Something she said must have gotten through to me because I asked Jason out on a date to an exclusive location with fabulous entertainment and company.

You guessed it!  He came to the fabulous suite of TCH, West Tower, 15th floor, room 5.  We enjoyed take out Chinese food.  We had the complete view of Fannin Street from our window.  We watched TV.  But we were together.  Yes, we did some strategic planning for our family, but mostly we ate, talked politics, and enjoyed seeing each other again.  I have to admit that my heart skipped a beat when he walked into the room – was it love or just a familiar and safe face?  Maybe both.  :) 

In case you are curious, our fortune cookie said, “Your present plans are going to succeed.”

I’m sure it was a long night for him.  He still had to go to the grocery store after visiting with me last night.  Thanks Jas – I love you!  And thank you Marissa for staying with the kids!  I appreciate it!

It was good to sit and eat dinner with you last night.

It did turn into a long night. I made it to the grocery store and as I got out of the car, I noticed the Bishop getting out of his car. His wife ran into the store as we talked. After about 10 minutes of talking in the parking lot, Shasta comes walking out of the store and joins the conversation. It was good to talk to both of them, and I was able to find out from Shasta that Danielle is still doing good.

I look forward to seeing you again tonight, just wish it wasn't in passing as we swap out.

Love YA!

Hey sister! I heard you are home this weekend. Is there anything I can do for you? Bring you a meal. I could come watch Joy on Saturday night while you do something with the other girls. Just let me know. If you need some help with some house work let me know John and I are available too (and he has had experience with bathrooms that suddenly explode :)

I am glad that you took some time for each other - very important! Sounds like a fun date night to me, yummy food, good conversation and a cute baby to hold. Take care of yourself.
