To my utter delight my older sister’s big New Year’s resolution is to write more and update her blog more frequently. I don’t know about you, but I love to read things my family writes. I love discovering things that we have in common; opinions, experiences, stuff, and I get a kick out of seeing how well she blogs.
Her most recent post, inspired by the cool people over at Sunday Scribblings, caused me pause and wonder “Uh. Why didn’t we think of that?” A date night, every Saturday, no kids. It seems so obvious. So simple. So brilliant. We’ve talked about having a monthly date night, but we never get around to organizing anything. We never thought of going about it the other way; get a sitter THEN figure out what you want to do. Brilliant. Simply brilliant.
So today? I called the sitter. But she’s busy this Saturday. But that’s OK. We’re on for the Saturday after. It’s a date.
