Jeremey and I make a point to go on a date every week. It's done wonders for our relationship - especially after having four children! Even though he has an 8 to 5 schedule, he has to work late a lot and sometimes over the weekend. But we still find time to go out - even if it's only for an hour. A few months ago, Jeremey had worked for 3 weeks straight so we hadn't had a date night out in a few weeks. Not wanting to miss any more, I got a babysitter for the 3 olders kids, took Connor to the hospital and had date night with Jeremey (and Rusty) in their office until 11:00 pm! I bought ice cream and brought it to them, then we just sat and talked while they dealt with the current crisis the hospital was having. It was actually pretty fun!
Jeremey and his co-worker, Rusty, had to work all weekend getting a new doctor's clinic in Kenai ready to be opened the following week, so Sonja and I met them at Acapulco's for date night.
Aw, what a cute couple!
We're always looking for new ideas for date night (we DO live in podunkville), so if you have any, we'd love to hear them!
