our love has changed

February 16th, 2009

It is amusing to me how children change your life. Before we had kids, a romantic weekend involved a few long runs, home cooked meals or fancy restaurants, and a day walking on the beach or hiking in the woods. Our kids have been at the grandparents’ since yesterday afternoon and our romantic weekend has included having a cheese/salad/crab dinner, falling asleep by 9PM to a movie on the laptop, washing then patching sofa cushion covers, building wine racks, cleaning the storage closet, recording donations to goodwill in the tax application, putting donations out for pick-up, a long run, and perhaps we’ll top the day off by doing taxes, sterilizing the bathroom/kitchen/kids’ room and finishing the 4 pair of pants I started for the kids a few weeks ago. Boy aren’t we romantic?
