Despite a child with separation anxiety and snowy weather, Adam and I successfully had a date on Tuesday evening. We left Kenly with a girl named Sarah who is a senior at West. She came highly recommended, and I know why. Kenly normally freaks out if I leave the room, but she had a blast with Sarah. Sarah said she only cried for 15 minutes right before bed. She does that for me. The only bummer thing is that Sarah leaves for college in the fall, so the drama could start all over again come August.
Adam and I took two separate cars in case Kenly didn't do so well. He really wanted to go to the concert, and Tuesday is his night off, so I drove just in case. On the way home we couldn't go more than 40MPH due to snow and high winds. Things looked better near out home, but our neighborhood was really slick. I started sliding back down the mountain, so we had to leave my car on the side of the road over night. Thanks to 4 wheel drive and some careful driving, Sarah made it home safe. We kept her up late on a school night, but she didn't have school the next day due to the snow.
Our date consisted of wings, salad, and garlic knots at place called 2 Guys. Then we went to the Orange Peel to see a guy named Brett Dennen. He put on a great show. It was so nice to be out with Adam. We need that one-on-one time now more than ever.
