a girls' night out? It's been so long for me I can't remember. A little over a year ago, a friend of mine was told by her husband to take a weekend away from him and their kids. She chose to come to my house with snack, a movie, and painting clothes, and she helped me repaint my bedroom and then we watched movies after we wore ourselves out. That's as close as I've come to a girls night in a long while.
