Jeremy and I went out on a long date today!
It's the first time we've spent a whole day together in a while, and we had a really great time. Our respite care worker came by the house just before lunch time, so Jeremy and I took off to one of our local sushi places and ate a whole bunch of yummy raw fish. Then it was off to the bookstore. No date of ours is ever complete without a bookstore and of course, a coffee shop, which is where we spent some time reading our new additions to our library.
After an hour or so we made a brief stop at the house and then we were off to Seattle to watch a men's roller derby bout. This was the first men's derby bout I'd seen, and in a lot of ways it felt like we were watching a completely different sport when we compared it to women's derby. The men have a very different playing style, and the game seemed to be more chaotic and moved much faster than what we usually see out on the track with women. This is the only men's derby bout we've seen though, so it might have just been this particular bout. At any rate, it was really fun to watch!
We ended the night with a stroll around the mall and dinner at a Thai restaurant. All in all it was a lovely day; it's so nice to get the chance to spend a bunch of time doing things I enjoy with my husband. Everybody needs a day like that sometimes!
