Blissful Nights

Yep - it is official, my marriage is like your favourite, worked in pair of shoes. You know, the ones that you can't live without because they are the best thing that you have ever worn ....

You can tell that we are comfortable in our lives together as I look across the living room and he is sprawled out on the couch, channel surfing in bliss and all dreamy while eyeing the action on our swanky new 50 inch plasma TV. Meanwhile, I am stretched out in my glory here on the other couch playing around with my fabulous new laptop and both kids are snuggled in their beds. Sigh .... could this night get any more perfect? The two of us giggle away in rapture commenting on how we have both gotten what we want as far as entertainment for the night. Our anniversary is in two days and prior to moving to Calgary, we both realized that we would have the opportunity to actually go out on a dinner date for our special day as we would be living in Cranbrook and would have my cousin or aunt to watch the kids while we snuck out and had a romantic evening.

I mean, dates are totally over rated are they not? Like who gets romance when you have kids? Ahem .... okay that is going to be our tag line excuse while this new novelty in our lives is exciting. Pathetically, we are seriously thinking of bagging the date and romance and settling in on the couches. Sad, I know, but being married for 4 years and 363 days and living in sin for 10 years prior to that, we are sincerely happy together so who is to say that the couches aren't just as important?

On an ending note, Kaelen was very adament the other night on giving Masyn her bedtime bottle. Isn't he just the best big brother?

I know! Hubs and I have been spending time more independently in the evenings and I think neither of us wants to admit that we're really enjoying it (how do you think I'm blogging again?) I think it's just as important to have some alone time as it is to have together time. So we've been trying to split our evenings, some devoted to doing our own thing and I think in just two weeks we've been much happier. Romance Schmomance!

And yes, what a GREAT big brother.

Wow - I still can't believe you're all the way down there in Cranhole. You should go to Kimberley and check out the Village Bistro and make friends with Rene and Ericka. Aw... I miss those two. I'll definitley have to come down and see you. It would be a great catch up with everything.

you can never underestimate the power of lying on the couches together and the safe relaxing home feeling that gives!

I'm laughing over here because just last night we had a chance for a date- extremely rare for us. Where did we go? To the bookstore. As soon as we walked in the door we said adios to each other and headed in our separate directions. We loved it! Anyway, at 39 weeks, the romance is a distant memory that awaits us weeks after baby is born.
