AFTER ALL THAT ADVICE about date nights, however, I have to admit, we likely won’t be making a date with date night anytime soon. We do have a dinner planned — one to which we were invited, one for which someone else is paying, one that’s loosely related to “work” for me — and we plan to make the most of it.
But really? We’re too busy for regular date nights. I know, I know. You make time for what’s important. I’m the first to say it. But school for everybody, work, keeping fit and running a household already have my husband and I maxed out.
I do like the idea of “date night” and might try to incorporate it as soon as something lets up. Maybe we’ll actually “date” with regularity by our silver anniversary. Until then, well, it’s the same as always: Commitment and sacrifice — definitely not karaoke — keep us together.
