How much do you and your SO do together?

My hubby and I don't seem to do much together anymore. We use to go out to eat, go to the movies, go explore new areas, and travel. We also use to go to museums, zoos, aquariums, ect. We also use to play video games together. Now that we have 2 DDs (4 & 1) and his job is way more demanding so all we seem to do is watch TV together. We don't have anyone to watch the girls so we don't get a ton of time with just us to do the things we use to. Now its just to expensive to do most of the things we use to or its just to hard to find the energy or the time. What do you and your SO do? Any good ideas for us?

  • we are together a lot. But one one one, no baby? We go to sports events together, most recently the Raiders vs Rams game. We got great tickets, 11th row at 50 yard line.
    So every once in a while we go somewhere and kind of splurge. On a regular basis we just do things revolving around our LO.

    oh yeah. If my LO goes to bed early we stay up, sip wine, eat dinner late, and watch movies.

  • Oh believe me, we do not lack in the sex department. lol. That is far from an issue. As for the drinking, we aren't much for drinking. He never liked it and I only have a drink maybe once or twice a year. Just not our thing.

  • we try to enjoy the stuff we have to do like grocery shopping, cooking dinner, cleaning out the garage... we play board/dice games sometimes. we watch lightning storms. we go for drives. we don't have the baby for a few more weeks, but we've been broke alot and going to the bars isn't a good choice for us. when my daughter was young i used to bring her everywhere - camping is pretty inexpensive for families and can make some really good memories. hubby and i do that together when it's not too hot here and plan to take the baby as often as possible. you don't even need alot of energy for that...

  • I would totally send them to their G'parents house but we are military and the closest ones live 13 hrs driving away. And the other lives on the other side of the country. We don't have many friends here that I feel comfortable with leaving the girls over night or even for the evening. The only one that I do trust that much has one of the fussiest baby's I have ever seen. I wouldn't want to add to her stress.
