Necessary Date Night

I can’t remember our last date night.  We need to get better at going out just the two of us.

J brought my mom down for the week on his way back from a family emergency.   It was nice to see her, and we took the opportunity to head to a baseball game just me and J.

I never remember to take care of myself, let alone my relationship.  I would say J and I take care of Bubs, and then we try to fit in whatever else we can throughout the day, whether that’s have a conversation, have J do school work, or take a shower.  Work takes up so much time and there isn’t enough time in the day to get it all done.  I feel disconnected to myself and my relationship at times.  I hate having to schedule time for us just to hang out, but that’s the way we have to roll.

I know I should get better at all of this, but I have no idea how to fit it all in.  I shouldn’t feel guilty leaving Bubs with someone who loves him, but I do.  He was fine.  It’s not like he knew I was gone.  Now that J is taking classes again, what little time we used to have is going to become even more difficult to see each other.

Last night was fun.  We laughed and had a good time.  We left the game early because Bubs doesn’t sleep and J works at 6am.  We never used to leave the game early, but things change.  It was only a few hours, and Bubs will have a better life if we have a strong relationship.
