Last night, we had a lovely evening. I had gone and purchased some fresh fish (talapia) for dinner. I planned on making lemon-pepper fish but we were out of Worcestershire sauce so I had to back up and punt! I ended up cooking the fish in some garlic, butter, and lemon. It was very good. I served it with steamed broccoli (with thinly sliced garlic) and couscous. It was really a great dinner. Of course that *might* have had something to do with the fact that I prepared fish sticks for The Boy and The Girl since neither will eat "real fish!"
WAY back when The Boy was just a little guy, I explained to him how much fun it is to run his cars and trucks up and down mommy's back. I made sure The Girl knew how much fun this is as well. At ages 10 and 9 respectively, they both still enjoy 'giving massages' to The Husband and I. They also love to mess with our hair - or "give haircuts" as they call it.
So...after dinner, (with my glass of wine still in my hand), we had a mini-spa night. The Husband and I both got on the floor and the kids got out some trucks, cars, and a foot and body roller I just bought for The Husband. The Girl also grabbed the happy original massager to use. It was the most relaxing evening. The Husband even fell asleep for a moment on the floor!
