Thanks Giving: Late Night Dinner Dates

Day 20 - A November discipline of giving thanks each day

Jim and I have just started having a late night dinner date every week or two in the past year.  Which means we feed the boys and put them to bed and then fix ourselves dinner and have an hour or more to talk with no interruptions.  I had no idea what a luxury dinner alone was before kids.  Granted, we normally end up talking about the kids, where they are at and how our parenting needs to shift to their ever changing needs.  But often, we also talk about Jim's thesis, my projects and our future plans too.  Sometimes the conversation is productive, sometimes we just chat, but either way it is so refreshing.
