Well, tonight we had our very first paid babysitter to watch Orin!
We usually try to have Adam and Kim watch him because they are family and we agree to watch each other’s kids for free! However, Kim was gone and Adam didn’t want to tackle 4 kids. Can you blame him? So we called up Ryan’s sister-in-law’s sister, Becky. She lives two doors down, and it worked out perfectly for her to come over for a few hours.
Why we went on a date in the middle of the week…
I have a colonoscopy on Friday for a routine check of my ulcerative colitis. Because I’m not allowed to eat anything the entire day before the procedure, I always try to stuff myself the night before. (But, today I realized that I don’t eat much during the day, so it made me wonder why the day of fasting is so hard for me. I came to the conclusion that it is because I CAN’T eat anything. NOTHING! It’s not that I’m not hungry. It’s not that nothing sounds good. It’s not that I’m too busy to eat. It’s that I CAN’T eat. And I don’t do okay with that option.)
So off to Texas Roadhouse we went. It may just be our new favorite date restaurant. Who can resist those warm, buttery rolls with the cinnamon butter?? Ryan always gets the ribs and I always get the pulled pork sandwich. I guess we have only been there three times, but so far that is always what has been ordered.
It was a quick last minute date night out, but it was so worth it! My tummy was stuffed and I got to spend some quality time with my husband.
