I am taking the weekend off! My husband and I are going to get away for a night for the first time since we’ve had kids (that equals 10 years for those of you who wonder…)
I’ve spent the night away from the kids before, but it was when I was in the hospital having more kids, so I’m pretty sure that doesn’t count as “getting away”.
We’re going to revel in our nerditude (New word. I just made it up but it describes us to a tee. When we were dating my husband’s niece and nephews called us ‘King and Queen Geek’.) We’re going to catch a Weird Al show.
When my husband bought these tickets for me as a Mother’s Day present he told some of his co-workers about our plans. One of them said, “Weird Al? That’s cool!” To which my husband, The Evil Genius, replied, “No. No it isn’t. And that’s why we’re going.” I love him.
We’re going to get dinner at a real, honest-to-goodness restaurant where I will pay people to cook for me and clean up after me. We will have wine with dinner and we will,
*wait for it because it’s worth it*,
go home IN THE MORNING!
Thank you for the gratis babysitting, Nana. You rock.
