13 Things I Could Do With My Husband When The Kids Aren’t Home

I have really been enjoying the summer because each and every Thursday, the kids are in Moms Day Out. Woo hoo! It’s like Christmas once a week! Tomorrow, Eric is taking off work so we can spend a day alone together without the kids – something that has never been done before. We have been completely overwhelmed when trying to decide what to do. These are a few things we have come up with.

1. Drop the kids off, come home and enjoy the peace and quiet.

2. Talk to each other without having to scream over the noise of the children.

3. Go to a movie that is not animated.

4. Go to lunch at an adult-type restaurant.

5. Go to an art exhibit. (I think this is the winner!)

6. Go sit in a coffee shop and not have to chase kids around.

7. Shop for Eli’s birthday present.

8. Enjoy an entire day without having to watch Nicktoons.

9. Hang out at a book store (not an easy task with the kids)

10. Go to an adult arcade.

11. Clean out the kids’ old toys since they won’t be here to scream “NOOOOO!”

12. Go grocery shopping without having anybody cry because we won’t buy them candy.

13. Come home and make wild passionate monkey love.

Hmm, saving the best for last? ;)

I hope you have a great day together!

Whatever you do - don't spend your free day together cleaning or grocery shopping.

I am totally enjoying summer camp this week. Right here in my oh, so quiet house.

Rock on!

Great list, mine is up at 13 Not So Famous Last Words; Most Americans die peacefully in their beds, but for those who die violently one can only guess what their final words must have been. I think that after you read these you will have to agree that they do indeed sound like they might have been the last words of those who did not go peacefully into the night.

Hope you go to the art gallery and then a cafe....ah...
