taking half a day
friday, november 12, 2010



lately, saxy and i don't get to spend much time together. we occasionally go grocery shopping together, but usually that's about it. we can't afford to do the things we'd like to do, even if we did still have a car (add in the costs for the taxi, and the price of a date becomes a nightmare), and not even not having to pay a baby-sitter helps much with it. we do see each other most days, with kids always around and while he does homework, but it's not really the same as spending time together.

tomorrow, though, we have a bunch of errands to run, and we have just enough cash for a cheap lunch somewhere. he still has homework to do, and he's supposed to go help a friend with a deck, but we'll also have a car we're borrowing that will cut down on transportation costs and time.

so we're spending tomorrow "alone" together and doing our errands together. no kids. just each other. and we're going to eat lunch together somewhere. not sure where yet, but it doesn't matter. it'll just be me and him. no kids. just each other. (seeing a theme here yet?)

nothing we have to do is all that thrilling. i need to refill my bp meds and exchange a book, we need to hit two grocery stores because we're about out of everything. and we'll get to have lunch. sans kids. just us.

no, i'm not looking forward to this at all. ;)

and it happens just in time. next week, he's off to school on monday, and works 5 days between tuesday and saturday. he'll have a full 40 hour week, plus his 3 to 4 hour total travel time each day he works. he'll be out of the house early and not be back until late, if he has any time at all, he'll have to either sleep or bury his nose in his homework. and i'm expecting him to have a lot more weeks like that as we head into the holidays (even though he has the holidays off, the days around and in between them are guaranteed to be busy).

so, tomorrow, we're taking half a day to ourselves before the real craziness of a lot of hours and final projects take all the time we have.

alone, together, no kids, and having lunch. probably can't afford the lunch if we really think about it, but we need it.
