For several months, Ian and I had been making alone time a priority. We arranged for a grandparent to watch L for the day at their house, or to run errands alone, or to go out for a meal just the two of us. This fall we kind of got out of the habit while we caught up with friends and did lots of fall activities.
It was time for another day. Today we dropped her off at one of the grandparents and then took the day to ourselves. We had a long lunch that absolutely hit the spot - we had beers and burgers. Then we ran some errands and did a quick grocery run.
I am embarrassed to even admit how lazy I was after that. We came home where I took a long nap and a hot shower (how I love showering without holding a little miss on my hip). Ian listened to music and cleaned.
It was totally silly the way we spent some of our time home - but it was totally needed. Some peace and quiet was just what we both needed to relax.
Hopefully we can plan more date nights or days together soon!
