The kids have been with Grandma Choo Choo since Friday after school. The house is so quiet-it really does freak Derek and I out. Friday night we drove over to Rizzi's for a grown up dinner. It hasn't changed a bit!! Excellent service, beautiful atmosphere and food that is to die for!! We came home, watched tv, and fell asleep early-no stragglers came down into our bed, no potty emergencies, no bad dreams. Neither one of us slept well-go figure!!
Saturday Derek slept in until 9:30am and then we enjoyed an hour of hot coffee together. Again the quiet was almost eerie!! Daisy even seemed disturbed by it. Derek worked on his thesis and I did some laundry, moved some furniture around-fun stuff. We did run 2 errands, he worked on his paper again, and then we went for a long walk.
We enjoyed dinner at Tim and Christines house and then they broke out the Wii!! Let's just say that some people (who wear glasses, a ball cap, and a yellow henson disposal sweatshirt) are more competitive than they choose to admit!!! We topped the night off with a little Guitar Hero and then came home.
This morning it is quiet again-so strange!!! Derek is working on his paper and I am going to go shower before we get the kids. It was a nice break for us, but we are ready for the kids to come back home.

That is great that you two had a nice long weekend by yourselves. Even though I'm sure you both missed the kids like crazy, it sounds like you got a good amount of things done. That is great! Hope you enjoyed your weekend!
