  • You need to make the time. How about a lunch date?

  • We hardly ever do. So I couldn't tell ya. But a lunch date sounds nice. Find anytime you can together.

  • My dh and I have been married 7.5 years married. We have a datenight every month! We make that time b/c it is so important. We make it work despite 2 careers, I am in grad school, son in preschool, etc.

  • Hardly ever. I am not one to leave my kids with sitters, I just don't trust anyone. Including family. Sad but true sometimes. But now that my oldest is 12 and has had Red Cross training, we do leave her alone with her sister who is 5 sometimes for a short time. Just this year started this. And now they are both in school. So Husband takes off early from work, he nows has tons of leave he can use since we never went anywhere, and we go on dates while kids are in school.

  • We have our ups and downs. We tend to go out more in the winter as there is not much to entertain. In the summer we are both very busy at work and tired at the end of the day. We also have a pool, so we get in that to relax and enjoy ourselves.
