Date Night

My hubby and I went on a HOT date last Thursday. It was a much needed date night seeing as my hubby is a slave to his job has been working major overtime for the past four weeks. He clocked in 140 hrs. in a two week period. He would either go to work from 8 am to midnight or 8 am to about 6 pm then go back in around 8 pm returning around 2 or 3 the next morning. I am happy to say that he is back to "normal" work hours at least for awhile and that I enjoyed my late nights with "Merlin". I am ready and now waiting for Season 3. Can you tell that I really need to get a life love this series? Once again hats off to single parents! I don't know how you do what you do and not go insane in the process.

For our date we enjoyed sushi and a movie. Well we enjoyed SOME of the sushi. We decided to be "adventurous" or plain crazy, I'll let you be the judge of that one, and tried some raw squid on rice. It was iiiiinteresting...ok if the truth be told and putting all diplomacy aside, it was GROSS! DISGUSTING! Just plain NASTY! Let's just say that it was HARD to swallow and Tyson got a good kick out of the face I made with every bite that seemed to take an eternity! No joke! I thought we were never gonna be leaving that restaurant because I wasn't going to finish the meat that *boinged*. Not sure if that is a term I can use to describe it, or if that is a description that is appetizing or even really a word, but that is the only word (made up or not) I think that can do the yuckiness of it all justice. I can't leave any word that can describe my disdain for this particular sushi that I had, unturned, or better yet unused. So, no I do NOT recommend it.

On to the more fun and less adventurous part of our awesome date night...we enjoyed watching "Inception" with Leonardo DiCaprio. I have to say that I am not normally a huge fan of his, but was really impressed with his and his fellow actors/actresses skills. They really did a great job. This movie kept me thinking the rest of the evening and you know its a good story when you wake up the next morning still thinking about it. :) So, if you haven't already seen it, then you are missing out and really should go see it! I give it two thumbs up and totally recommend it (if you couldn't already tell)!

I LOVE the picture, Sharon! Kirk and I also enjoyed that movie. We saw it when Isaac was nine days and slept the whole time. :)

Awww, yay! no more work for Tyson! I haven't seen Inception (I do want to) but my SIL shared this video with me and it cracks me up:

Oooh fun! Yeah, I've tried squid, I agree its nasty. Just spungy, slimy and just plain yuck!
We saw Inception also and we talked about it like all night and the next day. It was a crazy movie. Nolan does crazy movies like that. Also, I never really liked Dicaprio either, but I think it was "Titanic's" fault and not his. He's a pretty good actor.

We loved the movie as well. I wasn't too sure about seeing it, but was really glad I did.

Aren't date nights fun! I kidnapped my hubby Friday night and took him to dinner and a movie, too (we say Knight and Day). It was nice to get out.

I'm so sorry for the temporary single-parenthood you had to experience recently. That sounds awful. I'm glad things are normal again.

Way to go out on a date. We haven't been out in AGES. It sounded super fun, except the sushi. I've never had it. I'd like to try it some time, but NOT what you had. We keep hearing about how good that movie is. We want to see it soon.

So glad to hear Tyson's overtime is over! We saw Inception a few weeks ago and loved it too. Did Chad babysit? I'm looking forward to having Laney on Friday!
