Date Night


Wednesday and Thursday nights around here are weird. At 6 the kids go to their moms house, and her have the house to ourselves until they get here in the morning for the school bus. So, Wednesday and Thursday are like date night, every single week! The challenge is to do something together that is free or really really cheap! We usually end up cleaning the house or going fishing, but it’s getting either old or no fun! 

Today on Pinterest, I ran across this post from The Dating Divas and it is such an awesome list! I love the fat that there are different categories for us to pick from, and what’s cheaper than playing games at home? Tonight, I plan to make his favorite – chicken Parmesan, and watch a movie on demand (for free, of course!). 

Today was tough for me. I took the little ones to the library for story time, and when we got home it was time to grab Dave and go shopping. We did a big SAMs run, and on the way home stopped at Winn Dixie to grab a few things that I didn’t need 8 pounds of. By the time I was half way through SAMs, my feet were killing me and I was out of breath. The rest of SAMs and then Winn Dixie was awful. But, I have what I need for a couple weeks of meals except a run to the meat market. I need to go through and finish up my menu planning. 

I have to get on the ball with my Mother’s Day crafting. I plan to help the kids make a handprint painting for their mom. It should be a lot of fun. I’d also like to make one for the house that include my boys, too. I also have to figure out something for My mom! Running outta daylight here! 

I wonder what Pinterest can inspire me to make for her?
