You know you're married when a trip to Target on Friday night is considered a fun activity.
Up until last night, Chas and I haven't felt ready for friends yet. Being so busy and little love dove newlyweds, we've much preferred just being together at home after a long day at work as opposed to hanging out with other couples. We are definitely still love doves but last night, after going to the temple, we. were. so. bored. So bored, in fact, that we started getting a wee bit loopy/cabin fever-y. At about 9:30pm, when I looked up from eating a banana nut coconut muffin at the dining room table to Chas marching around the coffe table/ottoman, shirt pulled up, slapping his tummy loudly, I thought two things: one, how much I love that weird boy and two, ...well, I guess there was mostly just that one thought. We looked at each other, laughed (a little nervously), and knew that we had to get out and do something.
Target it is. And even though it's always good times to go to Target simply for going to Target's sake, our late-night trip had a real reason behind it as well. We don't own a single game and we wanted probably change that. Once there, and browsing through the game aisle, we decided that neither of us could bring ourselves to shelling out $16+ for a board game so we spent $5 and bought a deck of cards and some dice instead. Much better. We also got a lint roller and a box of root beer ice pops from that random $1 section at the front of the store.
Now all that's left to do is for me to learn to like playing games with cards and/or dice.
Oh yeah, and we should probably try to make some friends.
