Dating for Dummies

Scotty and I went out on a date today.

I think.

It involved shopping and a little errand-running. And lots of talk about the kids. And the budget. But it also included lunch. And, I wore lipstick.

So that counts as a date, right?

It was very confusing to be out and about in the middle of the day without our children. We were all out of sorts. I ordered macaroni and cheese for lunch, for crying out loud. It was fancy mac n' cheese, but still.

I tried to be romantic and told Scott I won't ever wear matching sweatsuits or get an old lady haircut, even when we're 60 years old. He reminded me that I'd have to work out in order to justify buying a sweatsuit, so he didn't need to worry about it.

Then I tried to convince him to drive to the Barnes & Noble where we first met so we could go in and make out like 22 year olds again, but he didn't go for it. Which was a fortunate decision for anyone who happened to patron Barnes & Noble this afternoon.

Apparently, we're rusty at this whole dating thing.

But when we were leaving, Scott saw that it was raining and told me to stay put. Then he ran out to get the truck and picked me up at the front door so I wouldn't get drenched.

Some things never change.

Do you watch Oprah? They had a mommy show on Monday and showed clips of mothers talking about mommyhood. The funny things. I could totally see you doing on of these. You do have the best and funniest stories. I think they plan to air more... so totally check into it.

Aw, thanks R!!! You just made my day with this comment! :-) I did in fact watch that Oprah and thought to myself, 'hey, I could do that!' It's nice to know someone out there besides myself thinks the same. :-)
