Date Night

Ah Date Night. Misty and I were able to get out for a couple of hours last night by ourselves. It’s been a while as money has been a little tight and we have about a million things going right now. But we finally were able to get some time last night and were able to go to dinner and do some shopping for the boys for their preschool which starts next week.

We went to one of the mexican places in town and it was just relaxing to just sit and enjoy each other’s company. Even if it’s just dinner for 45 minutes, it’s better than nothing. We try to get every so often when we can but having three kids and finding someone to watch them can get crazy sometimes. We are lucky that Misty’s aunt and uncle live in the same town, so when they can, they will watch the boys for us.

After dinner, it was off to Walmart to pick up some items and the night before school starts is probably not the best time to go in that place. The back-to-school isles were packed. You couldn’t get your cart through there. The worse part is that they don’t really take into count the construction of the store and the support poles are right in front of the entrance to the isles. Looks like they could build the place where the poles would be built into the fixtures that way they are kept out of the isles. As Misty was paying, I have to slip over to the video games. Yes, I am a video game junkie and need to find my power supply to my playstation. I haven’t seen it since we moved and that’s been over a year now. Argghh. No Madden. No Metal Gear. Not good.

Anyway, after Walmart, we were like, ok, I guess we have to go get the boys. Then Misty said, well, we could have some ice cream first. So off to Brusters we go. It’s a new place here and was pretty good. Not as good as Cold Stone but not bad. It’s all hand dipped and they make their own waffle cones. After some chocolate oreo it was finally time to go get the boys. Couldn’t put it off anymore. Gabe had hurt himself earlier in the day so we needed to go see how he was. I will have to post on that later today. It was funny to see what it took for him to start putting weight back on his foot.
