This past Thursday evening Sara and I went on our first date of the new year. (Eleven more to come, hopefully.)
In the booth across from us sat a family with a loud, crying 2-year-old. Eventually, the dad took her out to the car and just sat out there with her. Later the grandma apologized to us. We waved it off with, "Been there, done that." It didn't bother us. In fact it brought a small measure of joy just to know that we're past that (I think).
Next, a little leisure shopping at Family Christian Store and at Bed, Bath and Beyond.
After that, we went to Panera, where Sara got a drink and we sat and talked, trying to coordinate our crazy calendars and hammer out some issues.
Rounded off our date browsing the racks at Barnes and Noble.
