Date Night 2013

I am disgusted. I just wrote a helluva long post [1,000 words easy] and by some fluke of my fingers hitting the wrong keys I lost it. I had been typing the darn thing since 4 am.

::$^&*(()&^%$##@#%^&*()_+{+)*&^%$#@@#%&I)_|_)((::

Quick version?  I created and gave Pooldad a calendar type gift for Christmas entitled "Date Night 2013".  It had 26 bi weekly dates, researched, budgeted and planned for the entire year. Each date is different/  They run the gamut from free [candlelight dinner at home] to posh [4 day weekend at a beach front hotel].  Since neither one of us can recall a time where we went on a date, let alone two in one month, we are both very excited to have it all planned for us.

I had even written details of several of our favorite dates upcoming this year in the post.

Ah well.  I hope the dates go better than the post I just inadvertently erased. Sigh.

I think I need sleep.  G'night Tadpoles [She says at 6:40 in the morning] :/

See ya' on the flipside of my pillow after we get back from Mass.

Oh no! That's so frustrating. Well, hopefully, the rest of your post go better. I like the calendar idea.

Oh my ! - what a great idea for a gift. I may steal that idea for Valentine's Day.

Very nice. I don't think I've ever gone a date with my husband, before or after marriage!

I hate it when that happens!!!! Hope you have some marvelous dates!!

Juli said...

WAIT! IS that Mass as in church or are you coming to see me in MA?

I hate when I delete stuff by accident. Drives me crazy. Tony and I were just saying we have no idea when our last date was... which of course is why we went out last Friday. It was lovely.

What a great idea! However, I will never be that organized and Gary could never commit that far ahead. The history of your dates should be a bit-weekly.post.

That has to be one of the best and most thoughtful gifts ever. Makes me smile just to think about it.

I'm glad you finally got your snow, kiddo. 12:34

So sorry that you lost your post like that my friend. That is just SO, SO frustrating. Grrrrrr! I feel your pain! What an absolutely wonderful idea for a really inspired and romantic gift! I'm sure Pooldad was so thrilled with your thoughtfulness. And you have all those things to look forward to. Good for you. Hugs x

I'm hoping you will post about each of your dates as they come, even if you can't recover the post you had typed. Husband and I can always use some good ideas. I tend to be the planner, but even so, I start running out of ideas.
