playing hooky.

i won't be around today.
no i'm not working,
no i'm not traveling,
nope, i'm not even shopping {sigh...}.

today i will be finally going on a date with my husband.
it's amazing how long it's been since we went on a date, or even saw each other for that matter.  
for the past couple of weeks he has been off in north carolina visiting family and working on a remodeling job.  he came back monday, but we've only barely seen each other in passing thanks to long working hours and band practice.  

so today, we are taking the day off of everything in life and spending it together.
a walk, a movie, maybe some ice cream? who knows!
we'll just do as our little in-love hearts please.


it got me thinking, there's got to be a better way to sneak in some one-on-one time with the people you love on a regular basis, without playing hooky for a whole day.  i have a couple favorite friends here that i haven't seen in weeks thanks to my crazy new schedule, and i want to change that stat!

so have any advice? tips? secrets? to keeping up with loved ones when 
life zooms on at a millions miles an hour?
