Fantabulous Date Night!

Larry and I went on a date tonight! It was spontaneous at the last minute but so wonderful. His board meeting got postponed because a few people couldn't make it. So that left the night open for us. He came home and decided to take me to Circles and then we went to Sam's to pick up a computer chair that he spent some b'day money on. We had such a nice time. I didn't know it but Circles has a dining room for people with kids, and one for people without. WOW. What a fantastic idea. We were without the kids so we were wildly excited to go in the room without. What a wonderful adult evening. We focused on each other and sharing thoughts uninterrupted. Now we're home but he's putting his chair together. 

Today Dustin and Jordan had a little Thanksgiving feast with their lunch table. We got them chicken and mashed potatoes for their contribution. Larry took it to them at school at lunch time. They said all the other kids were jealous of their incredible potluck they had with their friends. They organized the whole thing and had a whole big dinner. How fun! After dropping off their lunch, Larry and I met for a business lunch meeting. After our meeting I went to pick up Dustin's senior pictures. He loves them! I knew he would. All this time he told me he cared less about them but now that I presented them to him, he was impressed. Today we ordered his graduation announcements and cap and gown.

I'm getting Thanksgiving dinner together, shopping for food, cleaning the house and wrapping loose ends up for the work week. Only a few things left to do in prep for Sunday but I assume we'll work most of the day Saturday. At least we will have Thurs/Fri to rest and spend some time together. I've been trying to work very hard on work things so that I can focus on my family those two days and not open my briefcase. With the Victorian Tea and some unexpected things thrown in otherwise, that might be difficult but that's the goal. Speaking of the Victorian tea, I found the most darling thing today to use for favors for my table. I'm so thrilled! I was at Miracles/Maggie's and found teapot Christmas ornaments.

Well, time to finish up a few things, get in the jacuzzi, and spend time with the sexiest man in the universe.
