It was time for us to have another at-home date. The whole month of May was breathless for us. Nathan’s birthday, Mother’s Day, Nathan’s graduation, our anniversary wrapped in with all the other stuff going on in our lives. And now that the month is over, I am panicking that it is all ready June. Really? The year is almost half over? What have I done this year? Lesson #1: When you start to panic about how fast time is going by, do something to get your mind off it.
So, I planned for a easy date at home. I found this Mad Libs at the thrift store for 50 cents. Then I purchased those word search from the Target’s dollar section a couple years ago. I love a good word search right before bed. It clears my mind. And this was one of those dates similar to the puzzle date where we didn’t talk much while we were competing against each other in the word search. But the Mad Libs. That was funny. It seemed immature and childish, but it was nice to bring that part of us out for the night. Lesson #2: A little competition and some games to exercise the mind is quite refreshing.
Nathan said: I had not done a mad lib since the 5th grade. Tiffany’s mid lib had a few sentences that were really funny. I was really sure that I could beat Tiffany at once in our word search race. I thought I won the second round but it turns out that Tiffany was searching for a word she had already crossed out. Now that my month is coming up I’m going to pick a game that I know I can win.
