What To Do?

My parents took the boys overnight tonight. They lovingly do this for us about once a month. This gives my husband and I a Friday night and a decent nights sleep. However, I’m always torn on what to do. I’m sitting here contemplating the possibilities. Do I retreat to the couch with a movie and a beer and head to bed early, or do I seize the opportunity to go out and actually have conversations with adults? It’s a tough one. I’m tired. I’ve worked all week. We’ve been battling stomach bugs and colds. It’s exhausting.

On the other hand if I don’t seize the opportunity and go out and have a little fun I feel like I have kind of wasted what could have been a great night with my husband and friends…but that couch looks so inviting. I think we might just go out and give ourselves an early curfew in order to catch up on some zzzz’s. It’s eerie having the house so quiet…I almost miss the little buggers. I guess I should get off my butt and put on some clothes that are not covered in snot or dog drool.

Given the opportunity, which would you choose?

  1. I’m typing this with my feet up on the couch with the remotes and a drink within reach and Savannah’s head nuzzled up next to me. I guess you know which one I chose.

  2. I always have the same dilemma ….and usually I end up staying home alone watching tv in my bed (well…i got the dogs) or cleaning the house…all in my pj’s with no bra! I have a shirt on! I just seize the opportunity to be completely comfortable 🙂 No hubby for me, and it’s always hard to find someone to do something with last minute.
