solsc: date night 3/31


March Slice of Life Story Challenge 
hosted at the Two Writing Teachers
Join us for a month of writing!




on the sofa
snuggled under a blanket
next to each other

watching a Netflix DVD that
has been sitting around for
at least three months

not preoccupied with 
facebook
twitter
solsc
pinterest
videos
music
books
journals
words with friends
or anything else --
just enjoying a movie

and the eyelids are heavy 
at the end of the day
both asleep within an hour

next to each other
snuggled under a blanket
on the sofa

  1. It makes me sleepy just reading this! It is good to unplug sometimes.

  3. There are times when you just need to unplug, relax and enjoy! We get so wrapped up in all those extracurricular activities and forgot to take time to do just nothing. Love ya M

  4. Glad to hear your hubby isn't feeling neglected this March :) Sometimes physical peace and emotional peace can't help but merge. I love how the repetition acts like bookends here (how you flipped the lines to go out as you came in).

  5. Goes to show you how sometimes we just need to sit, relax and unwind...which usually means heavy eyelids... but sometimes that's ok!

  11. That is exactly the kind of "date" my hubby and I need. It is so true--we are usually both on opposite couches with the remote in one hand and a phone,laptop or computer mouse in the other with our eyes fixed on the TV. Snuggled together on the couch under a blanket sounds so much better. One question, Michelle- Where were the twins? Let's hope fast asleep!

  13. Glad you had a fun (albeit sleepy) night together without distractions. And I love how you flipped the three lines at the beginning and the end.
