So, it's time for a change. For now on, Tuesdays in our house will be known as "Turned Off Tuesdays". The minute Mike walks in the door after work, cell phones will be powered down, laptops will be shut off, and the television will take a much needed break. We will be forced to talk to each other, more than just "Do you know where the laptop charger cord is?" or "Can you pass the remote?" Tonight, the plan involves a few steaks that need to be grilled, a bottle of wine, and a game of scrabble. It's an experiment, but one that I'm thinking will be a total success.
On a side note, I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day. Anna enjoyed the holiday thoroughly, first with a date with her best bud Cedella at Sweetie-licious for a little tea party and a whole lotta pie. Well, more pie for her mama, since for some odd reason my child doesn't seem to obsess over the awesomeness of this dessert as much as I do. Crazy girl.
|Do you take one lump, or two?|
|Anna is totally unimpressed with pie. I, on the other hand, am ecstatic.|
Then she got to tag along with Mike and I on our dinner date, although our reservations were at 5:30, kind of like Phil and Claire from Modern Family - early bird special, anyone? (I am a potential AARP member, remember?) Nothing says romance like a one-year-old throwing cheerios at you. Anna managed to keep her shrieks down to a minimum and didn't seem to annoy too many of our fellow diners, unless of course they just forgot to put their hearing aids in. Regardless, it was a great day spent with all my valentines, and eating copious amounts of pie.
Turning off for now,
