A Well Deserved Night Out

Karen: Gosh, I don’t think I’ve ever been stressed out. I mean, why would I be? I got  practically no responsibilities, my job’s a breeze, and I got a killer rack! Good morning!
Grace: Oh, when you smile, you have the cutest little wrinkle right there!
Karen: Where?! (runs to mirror)
Grace: Feel that? That’s stress.                                                                                                        –Will & Grace

Tonight Match and I are going on a date in San Francisco. I’ve been dying to take him to this great place that a close friend of mine from college (Bambino) owns and tonight we’re finally going. I was planning on waiting until our 6 month anniversary but sadly my friend’s restaurant is closing down. 🙁 I’m sad my friend’s place is closing, but I’m excited about getting to visit with him and have him meet Match tonight.

We need this date so badly-poor Match is having a really rough time juggling work and the academy. Yesterday he looked so stressed out and I felt so helpless. We’ve only got one month left and then he’ll be done! Then we’ll have a whole new set of stresses on our hands-Christmas with the families, house guests, and then we’re moving in January.

Speaking of Christmas I’ve been struggling to come up with a good gift for Match. It’s our first Christmas together so I want it to be a great gift, but like everyone, I’m low on funds right now. I’m hoping to come up with something creative for him. I’m also trying to figure out what in the world to get for Match’s mom. Any suggestions? I don’t want to get her wholesale fashion jewelry or anything that she might just say she likes and then throw away. I was thinking of just giving her a nice framed picture of Match and I. At least I still have a little more time before I have to really think about it.

So tonight will be our first date in a long time, because I don’t really think Halloween counts as a date. Hopefully my buddy Bambino will be on his best behavior. I really don’t need him telling embarrassing wild Date Girl stories for Match, yikes!
