Date Nights

Kim and I decided that we have slipped into a routine...wake up, get ready for work, go to work, come home, eat dinner, get things ready for work the next day/get things done around the house, go to bed, wake up and do it all over again...all day, every day. So we felt like we were just passing each other in the hallway, sitting across from each other at the dinner table, and laying next to each other at night. The usual, "How was your day", "How was work", "Goodmorning, "Goodnight" etc. Two weeks ago I proposed doing a date night once a week and alternating weeks. The first week was mine and we cooked dinner together (which is something we NEVER do) and we got comfy on the couch and watched a sweet love movie.

Last week it was Kim's turn. She took me to see Whip It (which was a kick ass movie), to dinner, and then surpirised me with 6X6 canvas's and finger paint. We sat at the kitchen table, REO on the stereo, and we painted these canvas's!! We did rainbows, hearts, peace signs, and other silly things!! It was so much fun and quite messy!!

So this week it is my turn and I'm at a loss!! Im swamped with work, working shitty hours this week which has me leaving very early and then not returning until 7 or 8 at night. So I have no idea what to do. She leaves this weekend to go on a mother/son trip with Ryan to go fly fishing! I will be at the hospital all weekend because my cousin (who is like my sister) is having a baby and kim and I have taken on the "baby daddy" role since the piece of shit who donated hasn't been seen in about 8 1/2 months (don't even get me started on that!).

So all in all we have a exhausting week, ending in weekends apart. I really need some sweet idea that will just blow her away!! I have tried googling ideas, but some of them are just stupid! Any ideas???
