The wife and I had planned a date--she had a party to go to, and we decided to make an evening out of it. We had dinner reservations and a babysitter.

Then the weather forecast. Her party was canceled yesterday, and we decided we couldn't make our babysitter drive in this weather just so we could go out to dinner. So we canceled.

I'm not complaining, but we've been out on precious few dates since the kid--we've been somewhat cursed. Either the kid has gotten sick or there's been a weather situation the few times we've tried to go out. Well, unless we've had my in-laws or friend's parents watching. And we did get to go to oidhche and palingyuan's wedding. But that's about it. We'd intended to be retaining some semblance of our previous lifestyle but fate has gotten in the way.

We'll try again soon.

We knew there would be changes, but our situation got a bit out of hand. Most babysitters don't know how to handle an oxygen machine, for instance. You can't leave a kid with someone if there's a chance he'll need it.

We'll just keep trying. It'll work sometime. And hey, I may miss my old freewheeling life somedays, but I wouldn't trade what I've got now for anything.
