The Butcher

So...Dave and I met in a bar. A karaoke bar. Sometime around 10 pm on a Saturday night. Yes, it was that cliche. And guess what his pick up line was...?

"How you doing?" As he channeled Joey from Friends.

We exchanged numbers and I labeled him in my phone as "Butcher"-- representing his occupation. It was charming to think...the vegetarian and the butcher.

He is still "Butcher" in my phone to this day.....although he tells me to change it to "Butcher Husband", which I have yet to do.

He texted me not too long ago this evening: "How are my monkeys?"

- "One is asleep. The other is enjoying the former being asleep"

- "Ha!"

I can't say enough how peaceful and liberating it is to have my evenings to myself again. He also took a long nap from 4-6, where I was able to complete a work-out video, make dinner, and spend some time doing absolutely nothing productive aka "me" time (i.e. what I am also accomplishing now). We also took a long walk around the neighborhood this evening and I discovered a huge park about a mile from our place equipt with swing sets, merry-go-round, jungle gym, teeter-totter, basket ball court, baseball diamond, dog run, soccer field, and football field. Did I say it was huge? HUGE! I'm so excited. We also have two grocery stores within a short walk, a couple coffee shops, bars, restaurants, gas stations, and a couple shops. We're also really close to the max stop (double Yay!)

Oh heck! The little guy is awake.
