Rather than do all the stuff I had planned tonight, I took my wife on a date. With our more hectic schedules, taking time out for a date is even more important. We are planning a date night about ever 10 days or so.
Tonight we went to the "Olive Garden" for dinner. Cheryl had the Three Meat Ravioli and I had the Crab and Shrimp Ravioli. It was a great date. We talked, cuddled and generally acted like teenagers out on a date. A very fun and very relaxing way to spend an evening.
After my overworked exhaustion several years ago, I'm determined not to make the same mistake twice. Life is simply too short to be chasing money, success, fame and notoriety. I'd rather spend my time with my family, friends and those I love.
