Computer issues

It's amazing how much I come to rely on having the internet at my fingertips. Our computer is having major issues and I've been without internet access for over 24 hours! I feel so out of touch! So, my sweet husband hooked up our ancient computer that we've kept in Brandon's playroom and hooked it up temporarily so we can have our link to the outside world again.

Andrew and I had our weekly(or so) date last night. Our favorite thing to do is to go play tennis, just the two of us, and then go to Sonic, get a drink and some onion rings and just sit in the car and talk. I LOVE doing that. Unfortunately, our plans for last night got rained out! Bummer! So, our back up plan was to go shopping. It was actually pretty fun. We went to the mall and to Lowe's. Those are great places to be without the kids.

We were cheapskates for so long that we rarely went on dates because we didn't want to pay a babysitter. I finally broke down this month and put enough money in the budget to go on one date a week. (One of the perks of being in charge of the finances in the family!) It's so wonderful to have the time for just the two of us.

That does sound like a fun date ritual. My dad and I used to go play tennis together all the time. You reminded me how much I miss that. Kinda funny how life rolls on and changes, and certain things you used to do get left behind. I know what you mean about losing the Internet connection. It drives you nuts. Today we lost the remote, and we thought we were going to go nuts. :)
