A quote I heard recently on tv really erked me. Although I’m paraphrasing it went along the lines of, “If the Obama’s can get out for a weekly date night, then the rest of us should be able to.”
Ok here’s my issue(s) with that: If I had more disposable money, a helicopter, chauffeur driven limo, secret service, nanny (and Grandma always available if the nanny couldn’t), cook, cleaner and gardener I’m thinking Tim and I would be out on date nights twice a week. I mean seriously!
Please don’t get me wrong I realize that (regardless of political views) we all realize that our President does an awful lot. Crikey, he’s a really busy man but he’s also got the world at his fingertips.
My sponsor, JuiceBox Jungle asked me this week what was stopping us going on date nights. Ya see if it’s about the money then restaurant.com (another fab sponsor) is awesome. I mean you can’t say fairer than a $35 dinner for $12. If you’ve no idea what or whom restaurant.com is, they make eating out on a budget easier. Buy a gift certificate valued at $25 for only $10. Better yet, watch Mummy Deals here and every time they slash the prices of those I’ll let you know. Sometimes the $10 is only $2 so it’s a cheap date night.
I guess for me the problem is babysitters. My parents are in England and my in-laws love watching Isaac but they also have a life! Now, maybe restaurant.com can come up with babysitters.com as I really need a New Year’s Eve sitter. Any takers??
