Date Night

Jeff and I went out together last night. Yah- a real date night just the two of us.  Though I almost backed out since the kids got their report cards and we usually take them out to eat to celebrate.  Jeff thought I was nuts!  But I really missed them since Thursday night I spent all evening at a friend's house rolling grape leaves. I felt bad leaving them again. 

Despite my mother's guilt, we dropped them off at Jeff's mom's house and headed out of town to go to a Japanese restaurant.  It's located in the mall, so I returned some things from Christmas.  We browsed some stores since we never go to the mall.  Jeff fell in love with Kirklands! 

After waiting what seemed like forever, we did get seated at the grill.  There was a group of families with their kids waiting too and their kids were so loud and rowdy.  I really didn't want to get seated with them.  Neither did Jeff especially after he sat next to them and got kicked and pushed the whole time! 

Luckily their group was so large that they had to wait and we were seated with other couples.  The couple to our left were really fun.  They were from Canfield OH (we were in Boardman, OH) and were big Steelers, Penguins, and Pirate fans.  You have to be alright to love those teams!

They were also out by themselves and it was a fun time!  Jeff thinks that they wanted to hang out more after dinner was over and we should have asked them if they wanted to go have a drink.  But we didn't. 

We headed back home to a local bar for a couple drinks.  The kids texted us and called us a few times, but it wasn't too bad.  In fact we were home by 10:30.  We had wanted to see a movie, but dinner took too long and we missed all the late show times.  Plus I would have fallen asleep!

So even though we didn't have any crazy adventures like the movie, it was nice to have time alone with Jeff.  He's going to Beer Fest tonight which might be why he took me out.  Hang over or not, he's still not off the hook tomorrow!!
