Overdue Date Night

We haven't been out on a date in a long time, and with Mira's health being rather poor for a couple weeks (more so than usual), we decided we needed some time away from home.

We hadn't been to the Chesterfield Mall yet, so we went to check it out. He noticed that they had a Cheesecake Factory restaurant, and decided that if he were going to be in pain, he might as well do it with some cheesecake in him. We checked with the manager and found that the regular cheesecake did not have soy in it, so he got a slice of the sugar-free version and I got the chocolate coconut cream. Oh. My. Goodness. I've never had a better piece of cheesecake in my entire life! It was like an orgasm on my tongue! We also had a makeshift dinner of salad from Subway and pizza from Sbarro's. When we got home we had a snack and watched some shows we'd recorded this week.

We used to go out before he got sick, and we didn't really think anything about it. But since he got sick, going out together has become something so much more special than it used to be. If I could give any soon-to-be or newly married couple any advice, I would say, "Do stuff together. Go on dates, watch TV together, go to a museum, whatever it is that you like to do, do it together. You might find yourself in a position where one or the both of you won't be able to do it, and you'll wish you could have had some time together." That's one thing fibromyalgia has taught us. That, and not to take things like your health for granted.
