An Hour and Half Date night

Saturday, April 02, 2011

Tonight, once the kids were in bed, I asked Mom if hubby and I could just duck out and have a short date night together. I was desperate to get out of the house all day, but Joaquin had gotten his shots this morning and we have a soft rule that if our children had received a vaccine that day, that we had to make sure that child gets good rest that day. So, although the weather was wonderful, we were shut up in the house for J's sake. Also, it was busy week and has been a busy time in general with G doing lots of rehearsing with the actors for Easter and so it was great to be able to reconnect a little.

We drove allllll the way downtown and hung out on our favourite street: Bloor (over in the Annex, to be specific). We spent a lot of our dating days on that street, eating sushi, gathering used CDs, taking tons of sugar at Future's... so, it's got lots of memories for us there. I really wanted a coffee drink at Aroma and well, there aren't many around, so downtown we went. Then over to Sonic Boom after that, and I scored a Brooke Fraser album (wonderful listen, so far). G found the soundtrack to "Life Aquatic" which is really an inside joke for us. After watching the movie years ago, we would sing the theme to "Ping Island/Lightning Strike Rescue Op" over and over again for at least a couple of weeks.

After that, I thought that perhaps we should head back home since he had to work in the morning, but he wanted to stay a bit longer, so arm in arm we walked a lap around people watching and just enjoying each other's company.

And I thought to myself, even after 13 years of being together, I really still am in love.
