Last week I decided to have a mid-week date…at home. When the kids were young and we had to hire a babysitter to go on a date, we often had “home dates”. We couldn’t afford a babysitter on a regular basis.
Many years ago, I strung lights in our living room and set up the card table with our china. Steve was surprised and we had a quiet, romantic evening.
This time, I strung the orange lights around our window, next to the dining table.
I made Swiss Cheese Chicken and added baby carrots as a veggie.
…because I had all the ingredients and didn’t have to go to the store for anything 😉
I also had some white twinkling lights that were still in the box. I hung those in the bedroom.
If you aren’t spending time alone with your spouse because your kids won’t go to bed, I encourage you to start training your kids to go to bed by 8. Your marriage will grow from it.
Take a mid-week break and enjoy your spouse. . . this week! You have 3 full days to plan it, and you don’t have to find or hire a babysitter.
What will you do on your mid-week date at home?
