My mom and I have decided to start having a monthly mother-daughter date. We live so close so it only makes sense that we take some time each month to just spend an evening together.
I've thoroughly enjoyed our dates and I've found them to be rather enlightening! We've only had a few of these dates so far but on each date I've explained this strange quirk or personality trait that I have and how I'm so perplexed as to why that developed. Usually upon finishing the explanation, mom pipes in and informs me that I probably get that trait from her. These dates are helping me to realize how much of my mom I have in my own personality. It's fascinating! And, sometimes when they come to personality traits that I have that stress me out, it's helpful and calming to know that I'm not in fact crazy and the only person who thinks like I do. There is at least one other person who understands my point of view and feelings.
Moral of the story is - dates are good - even it's with my mom and not the boy.
P.S. I know Rumbi Island Grill is old news, but I just went there for the first time yesterday and it was FABULOUS! And, that is probably the best customer service I've ever received and I even think it was genuine.
