We Need A Break


Last week he cooked Iranian food every single night. It was so good. I’m not sure what the inspiration was, but I think we both sense the need for a celebration or a refreshing. We need some re-creation and I think it needs to involve more than food.
I’m sitting on stage after speaking trying to brain storm things to do.
I know cleaning would help. My husband likes a clean space and right now our living room is full of baby toys, diaper bags and clothes for the refugee family.
Being outdoors always gives me a boost, but this weather is not exactly conducive to an outdoor adventure.
Movies can be hit or miss. Shah generally loves movies. I generally don’t want to devote two hours of my evening to a movie. But in the end, we end up feeling about the same about movies. He always wants to watch them and then is usually very disappointed. I never want to watch them but am occasionally surprised and pleased. We end up liking the same ones. He’s just more optimistic going in. But I am a pessimist and I doubt we could find anything to give us a needed boost. Though I would watch Midnight in Paris again.
Obviously options are limited with a baby. I think if we were baby free we would find a jazz club and go have a drink. Right now I’m thinking reading our political history book and cleaning the living room are going to have to give us our needed boost. Wow. Thinks change. All of you who have family near by who are willing to babysit for an evening, make sure you appreciate it.
Does anyone have any better ideas than a book and cleaning?  Surely we could do better than that.
