“Where do you want to eat?”
“I don’t know, wherever you want to eat.”
“How about Waffle House?”
“No, I don’t want to go there.”
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had this conversation with my husband. I’m so indecisive. He asks me where I want to eat, what movie I want to see, what I want for Christmas. And the answer is always “I don’t know.” Because I don’t know.
So much of my entertainment is based on what the kids are into, and I just kind of coast on through life alongside them. We eat nuggets and mac and cheese. We watch Spongebob and every Pixar movie that’s ever been made. What do I want for Christmas? I don’t know, is everyone else taken care of first?
Restaurants are often chosen in reference to kid-friendliness and what they will eat, so I have no idea what to do when I am handed free reign and an easy button.
I love my children down to the depths of my soul, and I love providing for them. I just truly don’t remember what I like anymore. And in discussing this with my husband, I discovered that he doesn’t really know what he likes anymore either.
Kids should be at a high priority, but it’s also important to stay in tune with your own likes and dislikes, hopes and dreams. Especially when these things can change over time.
So in the interest of reconnecting with ourselves and each other, I thought up a list of questions for us both to answer on our next date night. This would make a really fun list of questions for a girls night too.
15 Questions to Help You Reconnect with Yourself and Others
- What is your favorite color?
- What is your favorite kind of music?
- What is your favorite food?
- What is your favorite restaurant?
- What is your favorite kind of movie?
- What is something that you miss?
- How do you like to spend your free time?
- What makes you laugh?
- What moves you?
- What is your favorite place?
- If you had unlimited funds, what is one thing you would enjoy doing?
- If you had zero funds, what is one thing you would enjoy doing?
- What is one new thing that you’ve always wanted to learn how to do?
- What do you want for your birthday?
- What do you want for Christmas?
Some of these questions are very basic, and some can get pretty deep rather quickly. But hopefully the next time we have free time together, we won’t be at such a loss about what to do, and we will have a healthy respect for the reasons why we enjoy certain things.
And who knows, maybe one of these days I’ll get around to liking Waffle House.
