Because even though you don't always feel like it is, it still is.
Hannah and Norah spent Saturday night away from home together. It went shockingly well, even though I was the paranoid mom calling to make sure things were fine. Norah didn't eat well, but she slept wonderfully and wasn't too much trouble. I think she'll definitely be going again, though possibly not until she gets more into eating solid food.
Steven and I had a very nice time hanging out together. We did errands, started our Christmas shopping, had dinner, played mini golf, and got ice cream. We also got to sleep uninterrupted and just be together alone for the first time in darn near six months.
