« So What's YOUR Most Embarrassing Moment? | Main | How Many Balls Are You Juggling? »

Sneaking Off For a Date...

It's Sunday, and Randy and I needed to run to Home Depot and other exciting spots to do some shopping that would bore Matt (age 12) to tears.

So Matt volunteered to stay home and work on homework and household chores(!) while Randy and I went to buy towel bars and toilet plungers. (Yeah, marriage doesn't get any sexier than that...)

In the middle of running errands, with my stomach growling, I spotted our favorite burger joint, In 'N Out. I didn't have to work too hard to convince Randy to stop for lunch. We had so much fun! (Especially since our usual at-home meals consist of healthy chicken, pasta, fish, chicken, pasta, fish, chicken, pasta, fish...)

Can't remember the last time the two of us had just gone out for a burger, alone, on the spur of the moment. "Don't tell Matt!" we laughed, knowing he'd be mighty jealous.

As marital secrets go, this isn't a barn-burner, I know. But Randy and I must have looked pretty funny, sneaking out of the car when we got back home and tossing our In 'N Out soda cups in the recycling bin out by the street before we entered the house.

Shhh! Don't tell Matt.

We come alive when we drop the labels and responsibilities and allow ourselves the spontaneous pleasures of moment by moment living.
Thank you for sharing. I have been in the same burger shop (well maybe not the SAME one :-) many times. Your secret is safe with me!

Harmony, thanks for your comment. you're right -- being spontaneous makes all the difference! That's what was so much fun about Sunday.

This reminds me of an article I read by COrey Allan over at www.simplemarriage.net about how to have an affair with your spouse. It has the sneakiness that you liked here. he he he.

Oh, I love Corey's blog. I subscribe to it and learn a lot. Thanks for the note, Laurie!
