A Moment of Silence

I recently had to observe a moment of silence for my old life. We got our latest copy of Chicago magazine in the mail and it's the "Best New Restaurants" edition. Now, in our former life, Jay and I would have pored over it for hours. We would've compared prices, accessibility by public transportation, type of cuisine served, and sample menus, and then we would've picked two or three to try. Each night out would have been a big event--dressing up, eating at a glacial pace to savor every bite, even getting appetizers and dessert!

Now we go to Texas Roadhouse. We know what we're going to order before we even walk in the door. We inhale our food and get out as quickly as possible.

But we have a really cute kid and four bedrooms!

Just a few years when Joshua's off to college you can go again and everything will taste sweeter.

~okay hopefully you'll go again before he's in college.~

And the cute kid and 4 bedrooms is much better then a 50 dollar meal at some fancy smancy restaurant, any day.
