Saturday night out

This weekend is certainly shaping up to be busy. My niece's first birthday is next week, and her party is tomorrow. I haven't even started thinking about a gift, so I guess I'm going to be spending some time at Target tonight. Weeknight shopping usually requires a quick dinner out, so we're planning on heading right back out after we get home from work.

Tomorrow morning will be swim class as usual, but we've got quite a bit to do before heading to the birthday party. We need to get the gift wrapped, get some hand-me-downs organized and out to the car, and last, but not least, get the kids packed for an overnight stay at Grandma Sue's! WooHoo! My mom wants to take the kids back to stay at her house after the party.

I realize with both parents working full-time, we don't really see enough of our kids as it is. But the truth is, we don't always see enough of each other either. Our most meaningful conversations over the past year or more have been over IM while at work. But now we don't quite know what to do with ourselves. Maybe we'll catch a movie. But we have a home theater and hundreds of DVDs, so spending the money to get kicked in the back and struggling to hear over noisy teenagers doesn't usually sound that appealing. There's always dinner at a less kid-friendly restaurant, but we probably shouldn't be blowing that kind of money on dinner out either.

So who knows. Maybe we'll find something cool to do, or maybe we'll just come home and watch a DVD. Either way, we'll get to spend some time together - just the two of us. Then Sunday will come and we'll desperately want our children back. LOL.
