How do you have a date night,
when you live in a small town where everything revolves around food?
Trying to be a "good" wife,
by spending a couple of hours with husband away from the house.
Aware that my energy is sparce,
that at any moment my symptoms and fatigue may become intolerable.
So what did we choose to do on our night out together?
As a family we went to a restaurant for me to watch them eat;
But hey, that wasn't bad because it meant that I didn't have to cook,
and it was nice to be out with my family.
Then we dropped the kids off at home,
deciding to spend some 1 on 1 time together.
I honestly can't remember the last time we went out, just the 2 of us.
But remember, we are in a small town.
So we went to the Ale House for him to have a couple beers.
It was completely dead and from my standpoint, boring.
Beer, hotdog, and pizza aroma to fuel my nausea,
but kept opinions to myself, as I honestly wanted him to enjoy a night out.
He finally decided that he would rather go somewhere else.
We left after he had 1 lonely beer.
Next stop, a local restaurant with bar.
This time there was the option of beer and chicken wings.
Fun right? (full of sarcasm)
Our night literally consisted of me smelling food and watching others eat and/or drink.
At least the ACC basketball tournament was on the bar's TV screens!
Did I complain? No way.
I was proud of myself for actually agreeing to a date night, even if it was to be a spectator.
I was happy for my husband to have a chance to spend some time with me away from the house.
Just had to deal with boredom and the constant reminder that I am no longer "date worthy".
I wanted him to have a great night,
he was left snacking and drinking by himself as I simply just sat and watched.
The night ended early on account of me,
back home and in bed by 8:00.
Days of fatigue for me to overcome as a result.
What a disappointment and horrible wife I must seem at times!
