Date night in San Diego

Date night is a wonderful thing. El Jefe and I got raises for the new year, and I thought we should spend them on ourselves. Not that we're lacking money spent on ourselves, it just seems like we spend it on singular ourselves. So we used a website called sittercity (totally recommend it) and found a great sitter to hang out with the kiddos. Last night was our first actual "date". Married folks, if you can spare the cash for a sitter once a month or so (we're aiming for twice a month) DO IT!! It felt sooo good to be out eating a nice meal at a little table and just us. No sippy cups, no kid's meals, just us and a little Indian restaurant with great food and a fountain that flowed from the ceiling to the floor. San Diegans, try Bombay. Great food, amazing Naan bread, and Indian food is super Vegetarian friendly. I went out in heels and jewelry (my own designs) and felt Grown-Up for the first time in a long time.

We are live!

I now have my own official domain. Actually easier than I thought. If you're thinking about buying one, or those Danica Patrick commercials are just too much to resist, you won't be disappointed. See, I'm not really all that savvy. I work on OLD technology for the Navy, and make jewelry out of vintage things. I'm not exactly a tecchie. But if I can come up with a relatively professional looking domain (albeit one that is hosted for free with ads for now) anyone can.

I've had the domain for a few weeks now, but I got a kick in the pants today. We took Thing One to see Cirque Du Soleil, leaving Thing Two with Super Sitter. Wow. Not my first Cirque experience, but one of the best yet. And those folks were getting ready for another show as we were leaving! I'm not a very good multi tasker, but it's pretty much how I live. Because even though I'm not a good multi tasker, I have a SHORT attention span. It amazes me the dedication it must take to be a Cirque performer. The drive, the strength, the time they put into their craft, all to entertain me (very well) for three hours. And sometimes I pick clothes out of the laundry because I can't get off my butt and do it. Not tonight. Thanks Danica Patrick, and thanks Guy LaLiberte, tonight I have been productive. Now to get the clothes out of the dryer.
