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.
As a family we went to a restaurant for me to watch them eat;
But hey, it was still nice to actually be out with my family.
Then we dropped the kids off at home,
deciding to attempt spending 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 aromas to fuel my nausea,
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.
Did I complain? No way.
I was proud of myself for actually agreeing to get out, even if it was to only be a spectator.
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 before 8:00.
Days of fatigue for me to overcome as a result.
What a disappointment and horrible wife I must be at times!
