I left you all hanging with regard to our date last week. Sometimes I forget I have a blog and therefore I forget to update it. Then, when I do update it, I wonder if people actually read it. Sometimes someone will say something to me about it, but I don't know if writing a blog for a handful of people is really the best use of my time. I could just call them and tell them what's going on. Or write them an email. Which would you prefer?
Until a decision is made, I guess I'll keep writing. Onto the latest happenings...
Our date on Valentine's Day was great. Taylor the Babysitter arrived as we were putting Keller to bed. He went down fairly easily, which was a surprise. I was certain we were going to get a call that he woke up and wouldn't go back to sleep. But there was no call. I was then considering calling home to see how things were going but I had was faced with two possible outcomes: 1) Taylor may not answer the phone and I would freak out (this was our first time having Taylor stay with Keller and we actually didn't discuss this) 2) I would be "that mom" that calls the babysitter 800 times. I didn't call and it ended up being a nice night (though I did sit with my cell phone in my lap). We ate at Rock Creek in Bethesda and it was nice.
Now, I know it sounds like I'm loony when it comes to Keller. That I don't feel comfortable not being home or something. Not true. I am perfectly fine with going out! I was just nervous because this was the first time we had gone out in a long time and I had a feeling something was going to come up that would make us come home. Thankfully, nothing did. So, it looks like more evenings out are in our future. Yay!
We are heading down to Williamsburg today. Sadly, John's grandmother passed away on Wednesday. She was in bad shape, so while it wasn't entirely unexpected, everyone is still understandably upset. I know John's mom is pretty upset. It was her mom.
So, on that note, take some time today to tell the people you know that you love them and appreciate them being a part of your life. I hope my peeps know they mean the world to me.
