As I mentioned in my previous post, Prince Charming and I had a date last Saturday night. It wasn't much, but it was 1 1/2 hours without the girls.
That alone is a record.
We've gone hours without Cinderella, or two hours without Sleeping Beauty. We've gone to church without the girls when my parents last visited, but never this much time without either girl and JUST THE TWO OF US!
It was nice!
We dropped them off at our pastor's house and spent half and hour talking to him and his wife. We went out and had barbecue and watched some of the Husky game on TV. Then we went to B 'n R for ice cream.
By 8:00, we were back at our pastor's house, where we sat around talking until 10:00. That was a mistake; Sleeping Beauty was exhausted. It was a nice visit, but for her sake, we shouldn't have stayed that long.
That was it. That was our date.
It wasn't much, but it was time without the girls.
It was nice enough to make me want to do it again really soon.
It was also nice enough that I can wait awhile until we do it again. I can live on the memories for awhile quite happily.
And yes, I felt like a Queen. With barbecue sauce on my face.
