Oscar was (finally) asleep and our (late) dinner had been eaten. Darin and I decided to watch the rest of the movie Watchmen, which I couldn’t sit through the night before. So we sat on the couch and cuddled, which is something we’ve rarely done since Oscar was born, usually because we are playing with Oscar, or because I am too busy or too tired. It was wonderful to just rest my head on Darin’s chest and feel his arms around me, because that’s always been “home” to me, and I love it when we sit on the couch together and watch movies. There’s a line in one of my favorite songs that goes, “When Friday night arrives we’ll let it pass outside the door…” That’s my favorite way to spend time with Darin, no reservations needed, no lines to wait in, and I can pause the movie anytime I want to pee, make popcorn, or sneak upstairs to watch Oscar sleeping, placing my hand gently on his chest to feel him breathe.
