We don't have a set time or day. It just happens. Money is tight, but we used to go out to dinner all the time.
Last Saturday, we went to our favorite Italian restaurant. One of the kids (the middle one, who's in college) came with us. She was making jokes, "Sorry to ruin you date! Hahahahahaha!" It wasn't ruined. We love our kids. Our little one wasn't feeling well, so she didn't go, and the older one wasn't there, either.
We spend a lot of time together, usually every evening. Also, Sunday morning is when we watch Sunday Morning
with Charles Osgood. (Our kids laugh at us, because it's and "old people's show." They aren't even awake then.) It's a date for us. Sex the night before, sex that morning, then Pop Tarts or cookies in bed and Sunday Morning.
