Just what I needed....

A night out with some friends to celebrate all of our birthdays. Six of us have birthdays all within weeks of each other and we figured we deserved a night out to celebrate. We went to a place called Niche. None of us had ever been. We had our entertainment cards from the entertainment book so were able to get six dinners for the price of three. Share that out between us all and we ate for not much at all. They had some live jazz that was great except when the guy on trumpet let it rip. It killed the conversation and he would hit these notes that just are not meant to be hit in a low ceilinged space. We opted to eat dessert elsewhere. The Fireside Cafe is a fabulous spot full of intimate little clusters of couches and comfy chairs as well as tables. We sat in front of the fireplaces and had incredible cheesecakes and the like. We were having so much fun, it wasn't until Rosa and I went to the loo that we realized it was after eleven. We packed up and headed for home. I was so wired I had to watch the news before I fell asleep.

Daniel has an appointment with a psychologist on Monday, and we are anxious to see what she thinks of the situation.

We continue to have freaky weather. My crocuses are coming up, and either daffodils or hyacinths are on their way as well. Snowboarding is out of the question for Daniel, and so we struggle for weekend entertainment.

How do you get away so often? Really, you must share this secret! Do you keep your kids locked in the basement or what? I am sooooo jealous. Cheesecake...in a restaurant with real dishes.... YUM!
