Day 294

I appreciate a cliche most of the time, but I'll admit that I roll my eyes pretty hard when I hear the advice "Date your spouse!" My spouse is my spouse. We got married, which was our proclamation to the world that we're well past the dating stage.

Well, I'm back in the routine of regularly using a planner complete with multicolored pens and fun stickers, and one of the sticker packs I bought came with "Date Night" stickers. I am not one to waste a good sticker, so tonight, I dated my husband. Between him working nights and me going back to school and traveling for running, we have been like ships passing in the night (how's that for a cliche?) for the past week. Armed with a 225 Best Eats certificate (think Groupon for Baton Rouge restaurants), Richard and I headed to BRQ for a mid-week date night.

Admittedly, I haven't cooked any rockstar meals lately. In fact, if it wasn't a can of soup or a Stouffer's frozen situation, I probably haven't cooked it recently. Thus, we were likely to be impressed with anything, but BRQ was truly delicious. As is often the case at barbecue restaurants, the portions were enormous, so we actually ended up with two meals each after all was said and done. We could have probably avoided this issue by not ordering an appetizer, but I also have no regrets about ordering the queso. (What kind of monster would regret queso?)

This always happens
Just under the wire, I submitted all of my homework and finished my readings for class today. I am taking time this evening to breathe a slight sigh of relief, but I also know that if I relax too much, I'm going to end up stressed out, tired, and behind again. I will continue to chase the unicorn of work/school/running/life balance.

Something that made today great: I had pho for lunch!
Time I woke up: 8:58 am
