Is that what it feels like?

We went on a DATE this afternoon! We felt like a normal, married couple & it felt GREAT to get away, even if it was just for a movie. The opportunity was presented to us by my brother. He happened to have a couple of free tickets, no restrictions & offered to babysit while we went. Of course, he brought along his wonderful girlfriend Jessie (I have a feeling she did most of the work, lol). I didn't even stress about it.

I wrote out the kids' lunch menu & told them where Ian's seizure medication was just in case & we left. No turning back! Apparently things went magnificently. They ate all their lunch & went down for their nap w/o much protest what so ever. Tio (my brother) even bought the kids pizza for dinner so we wouldn't have to mess w/ it when we got back.

The kids didn't even cry when we left. Much better that way. When we got home, they were as happy as could be. This is the first time we have left all 3 w/ anyone besides our parents. I can't wait to go out again!

The movie was fantastic. I'm a big Harry fan, having read all the books. We even got to see the 1st 12 minutes in 3D which was really cool! I would highly recommend the movie. I can't wait for the last 2.

Isn't it nice to be out like normal people?! That was really sweet of your brother to do that. If you can, try doing it once a month. We usually go right after we put them down for the night, that way you're not breaking routine ;)

I was so glad to hear you and your husband got away on a date. Then I gasped in jealously when I saw you went to see HP... our nearest (current movies) theater is 2 hours away, and I just haven't been able to afford to make the trip. In a month or two, it'll come to our nearby theater (only two towns over - about 45 minutes away), but I'm just dying right now, knowing that it's out and I can't see it!!

I'm glad you read the books and liked the movie! I'm so jealous!!
