date night

The great snowstorm icestorm of 2011 provided us with an increasingly rare opportunity: date night! (kind of)

Some background: I'm starting to think we are way older than we actually are. Typically, I go to bed by 9 every night (even on weekends) and Jon joins me between 9:30-10, depending on what's captured his attention on tv (usually history channel or A&E) or on his computer (usually bicycles and Answers in Genesis). Additionally, I've become much more laid back than I used to be and would much prefer staying in and watching a movie as opposed to going out. Due to the weather, both of our classes were cancelled. This was, truthfully, a much needed break and a huge blessing. I needed one day to just mellow out in the evening. Not to mention it was nice getting home before dark! (Oh, it warmed up briefly yesterday morning and the ice became much easier to handle so I made it into work after all!) When I got home from work we loaded up into our Aerio and headed for our date night location: Burger King. I know, I know. This sounds like a combination of disgusting and pathetic. Keep in mind, though, that I have been dieting since Thanksgiving (and I have 10 pounds less on me to show for it) and we aren't exactly rolling in money at this point in our lives. Also, one of my coworkers that I share an office with had BK for his lunch yesterday so I was forced to smell the greasy goodness for FOUR HOURS. Needless to say, I quickly got in touch with Jon and all but begged for some BK for dinner.

After Burger King we spent the evening just relaxing, talking, and watching television. I forgot how nice it was to just space out for an hour or two and not have to think about anything. It was glorious.
