Playing Hookie!





Hookie- A day in which liberty is taken upon oneself to exclude themselves from school or work responsibilities.
I HIGHLY recommend that you play Hookie every once in a while. Actually I swear by it. Recently I cashed in on a babysitting Trade with Katie(before the birth of Louise) for a day of shopping and movies. I thought my day was gonna be spent alone, but as i was walking out the door i asked Husband of mine if wanted to join? ( OK I kinda begged him to ditch work and hang with his lady) He made a couple of calls and the day was ours!!!! I was completely giddy. IT was so fun to get the day with NO kids and NO responsibilities!! We Went to lunch, saw a Movie, got cold stone and then spent the rest of the day thrift store shopping. Thrift store shopping is basically the only way I can get him to shop with me. Plus it's hard to do with kids. We scored a lot of cool books and a couple of ties. I guess we are still in love.

Thrift store shopping is addicting! Can't walk out without having spent 20$!

That last comment wasn't from Nathan wanting to see if he and his hubby were still in love...it was from me signed in under Nathan :)

Thank you Ruth, you inspired me. I made Christian take me out last night. We hadn't been out alone in forever. We had a great time.

Hookie sounds like a great idea. SO glad I get to play hookie in about a week and a half when I ship my girls off for two weeks to Utah. :)

Playing Hookie as a mom is much more rewarding than playing it as a single student- there are just so many more responsibilities you get to avoid. I had so much fun watching/bonding with your boys, wish I did it sooner and more often before being out of commission with newborn-titis.

Oh! YOu guys really are still in love! Sadly, I'm not sure if Ryan and I are anymore, because whenever I ask him to play "hookie", he always turns me down!!

PS maybe he turns me down because our kids would still be with us...maybe NO kids is the key!!
