so what did we do?

DW and I had a nice break tonight courtesy of Andrea and Mary (THANK YOU!) who came over to watch the kids and put them to bed while we went out.

Since it was a bit last minute, we didn’t have anything planned, and we didn’t feel like eating out, so what did we do? Why, what every happily married for 10 years couple would do! We went to Canadian Tire (a hardware/houseware/garden store)! I kid not. The new one, on Lakeshore and Leslie. It was pretty nice, actually.

And what better way to cap of a trip to the hardware store than by visiting a local cafe called Chocolate Heaven? It lived up to its name with made in-house chocolate truffles, tarts, cakes and cheescake. Coffee and chocolate… mmm. I thought, “We should have worship team meetings here…” 🙂 I had a ‘Turtle’ Tart (pecan, chocolate chip, caramel tart) and an Americano. Probably why I’m still awake and not sleeping yet. Whoops.

I love checking on the girls after they’ve gone to sleep. I sneak in, turn off their light, turn down the music, and pull their covers back over them. Tonight the Comic mumbled something and smiled in her sleep. The Linguist cried and flailed a bit with her arms before settling down. She’s been sick lately, so I can understand her discomfort, even in sleep. I give them a kiss, and whisper “Daddy loves you” before sneaking out again. I like to think it helps them sleep better.
