Foot Loose and Fancy Free

Thanks to some daring wonderful friends, hubby and I were afforded 15 whole hours alone this past Saturday night. At first, even just thinking about it, I was pretty nervous. I mean, anyone that knows us, knows that we've had our share of struggles and troubles over the last few years. We're still in deep with some of those struggles now.

I had visions of sitting across the table from hubby totally not knowing what to say to him, nor him to me. An uncomfortable silence, if you will.

Thankfully, as we shared tortilla chips and ranchero sauce, we found plenty to talk about. And I think we even enjoyed it.

And let me tell you how AWESOME it was to be able to sleep through the night(without counting my hourly trips to the bathroom) without having a little one knock on the door wanting to climb into bed. I felt a twinge of guilt when I walked by the kids bedrooms seeing their empty beds, but it passed quickly. Really. And for the record, the kids had a great time away from us too.

The kids are all still home on Fall Break. 6 more days and counting...

Signing off to hit the hay. Even though I am heading into my second trimester, I am still fighting major fatigue.

It is wonderful that you and hubby could get some time alone, especially with bub on the way. It sounds like things are going well for you right now, I am so glad of that.
