I Love My Husband, But....

...the conversation is getting dull. Is this suppose to happen after only four years of marriage? We've had a series of not so good dates of them we even resulted to just going grocery shopping without the kids..yawn. So for our latest date we decided before hand that we weren't going to do anything that didn't require interaction with eachother (i.e. movies) and it went much better. We went to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse (Major Major Yum!) and then we decided to play games over at the school. We played pool, ping pong, etc. The conversation was better, this time..But my point in posting is that Kimball came up with a good idea I wanted to share. He suggested that He and I ought to try out having a form of a book club just between ourselves where we both read a book then discuss.  I thought it was a great idea and we are now reading our first mutual book, my friend Gretchen suggested Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency by Douglas Adams, author of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, which Kimball really enjoyed. So far the book is good.. but I'm hoping this little activity will give us some reprieve from discussing the density of butter!

Preview this book
