Saturday Sundaes

I usually work every Thurs, Fri, Sat.  I've been trying to think of a little something for Nick, Ethan, and I to do every Saturday night as a way of celebrating being off work for the next 4 days.  I don't get home until around 8pm so I didn't want it to be anything big or time consuming because about an hour after I get home, Ethan's off to bed and I'm tired!  I wanted a mental push to get me through my last day of work each week, something along the lines of "Tonight is movie night" or "Tonight is build-a-fort-with-sheets-in-the-living-room night."  Anything really.  Well this week we tried "ice-cream-for-dinner night."  I'm not sure if we'll do this every week, but it was fun and Ethan sure was excited for me to get home!  This night worked out extra-well because when I walked in the door the house was spotless!  Nick knew that this work week was more stressful than usual and he wanted me to be able to immediately relax.  He had done the dishes, cleaned the counters and table, vacuumed, organized his music room which has been a mess lately, washed our sheets and duvet, and IRONED our sheets and duvet when he remade the bed (hello ladies! amazing).  So, ice-cream night was off to a great start!
