Date Night with the Dogs

So every time Kim and Rick leave to go on vacation/business, Tristin and I are left to look after Sumo. Now Sumo is probably one of the neediest dogs I have come across in my life but it's fun to look after him....most of the time. It just reminds me that I'm not quite ready for kids just yet. Anywho, this time around, instead of looking after just Sumo, we now have little Boo D. to look after. Boo is my sister in laws tea-cup yorkie who has a lot of spunk and tries to always fight with Sumo. She doesn't quite understand that Sumo's mouth can fit around her entire head. Any ways, So last night (being Friday night), is typically date night. Well date night for us lately has been severly budgeted out of our week. We figured that if we cut back on eating out, we'd save up to $400 a month. That's a LOT of money!! Besides, we are easy to please people. Tristin isn't at all fussy about the food I make and what we do and as long as we're spending time with each other, we're happy. So lasts night's date night went a little something like this:

Grilled Cheese and tomato soup (I still can't cook, but I don't really care for cooked food as much as fresh food), a movie at home, and two needy dogs fights on the couch while we try to watch our movie. Eventually they both went to sleep, Boo on the lap (coz she's small), and Sumo, looking like a dead spider next to me. At one stage, Boo couldn't make up her mind as to which lap she wanted to cuddle on, mine or Tristin's. it was really very cute. How cool are our date nights? s
