Goodbye Date Night :-(

Lizze attended the IEP meeting for Elliott this morning and I stayed back with Emmett. There were no concerns about Lizze being able to handle this on her own.

We have no worries about IEP’s at this school but even if we did, Lizze is not someone you want to mess with. Mamma bear is very protective of her children, including the educational rights.

When Lizze got home, she was tired and laid down with Emmett for about 5 hours. When she woke up she was not feeling well at all.

This doesn’t look good for date night. It appears that the universe doesn’t want us to get away for even a single night.

This is evident by the string of events that have taken place over the past few days. For starters, we are without a car. That tends to be a problem in the transportation department.

Elliott’s had this on again off again ear pain, however the off again part is likely due to the fact he’s afraid to go to the doctor. He actually told me that it still hurts, he just doesn’t want us to know because he’s afraid of going to the doctor.

Emmett’s hit another fever cycle. Well, he’s sorta hit another fever cycle, he’s fever free at the moment but he’s just not feeling 100%.

My mother has cone down with the flu, and a very bad case of it. My dad said that he has never seen her this sick before. Thankfully she’s feeling better today but she needs her rest and we completely understand that.

Lizze’s parents have said they will take all three boys so that we could still go. That is really nice of them and we are very grateful for the offer. However, with Lizze not feeling well, I don’t know what we are going to be able to pull off tonight.

As I said, the universe just doesn’t want us to go.

Hopefully, Lizze will feel better and we will still be able to go. This also depends on how the boys are feeling as well. If they aren’t feeling well, then this evening will be a no go.

If you can't do a date night out, do a date night in. Put the kids to bed, throw on your pajamas, order something to eat in, and watch a grown ups movie. Just because you can't go out doesn't mean you can't date your wife. You just have to be creative.


NOOOOOOO! I hope you go on your date! Any time away is so important. I hope everyone feels better! 🙂
