Taking a cue from The Nerd Theist, who asked in his blog post today:
What did you LOVE about January?
I loved spending some alone time, last weekend, with my wife. We sent the boy to grandma’s house and booked a hotel room/celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary. Had a great time:
- Watching The Greatest Showman
- Playing King Domino (I won!) and Carcassone ( I lost…)
- Trying to figure out which Fast and the Furious movie was on TV (seriously, these movies blend at some point, but Tabitha and I love watching them together)
- Doing absolutely nothing but simply being together
Our time away reminded me of our need, as a couple, for time just for the two of us. Time where we can celebrate being a couple.
Started playing Final Fantasy VI on the SNES Classic with Wyatt this past month. I have loved finding a new game that both of us can enjoy together–the game supports two players, who knew!–. His hot take on Final Fantasy VI:

Lesson Learned: If you want to eventually play classic Japanese role playing games with your kids, start them out on Pokémon.
