Do you know what today is? It’s E.K. Day! E.K. Day is celebrated the FIRST non-school/non-work day after Christmas. “E” and “K” stand for the initials of mine and LilZ’s first names. Today is the day we leave the house early in the morning and spend the day eating out, watching movies at the theater, and spending our gift cards people gave us for Christmas. It’s gotten to be such a big deal that family members make a POINT to give us gift cards just to spend on this day. LilZ is in the shower and I’m ready to go.
So. I’ll be out spending quality time with my son. Shopping and Eating. It’s a beautiful thing, isnt it? Have a great Saturday!
