It was a good night

June 23, 2009

bloodflowersTimes have been tight for my wife and I these past couple years. We’ve had to cut back and make sacrifices just to make ends meet, but it looks like we’re finally coming back to a place where things aren’t so choked.

The money isn’t flowing freely, by any means, but we’re no longer scratching and scrambling just to keep from getting behind.

So last night I did something I haven’t done in a loooong time.

I got the kid a pizza and took my wife out to dinner. A real dinner at a real restaurant where we had to dress up in real clothes and wait to be seated.

I had steak and mushrooms and buttered veggies and my wife had a steak with lobster sauce and a loaded baked potato.

It was nice.

Afterward we went home and picked up the puppy and our eldest daughter (the other two urchins children are at grandma’s) and went out for ice cream.

And no, for those of you following the fitness aspect of my blog, ice cream is not usually on the menu. But the smiles and the laughter and the warm summer night couldn’t have been more perfect.

    It was an awesome evening. Thanks for taking me out. Because it was so long since the last time we went out I think I appreciated it a lot more. That doesn’t mean I want you to wait another year to take me out again though!
