2018 Operation Reconnect

Buddy Guy Jonny Lang Concert 2018

As a New Years resolution in 2018, Charlie and I again vowed to re-ignite the spark of one-on-one time at least once a month in the form of unique date nights.  Like in 2012, 2014, 20152016, and 2017 the rules were to alternate who planned/executed each date night every month and to not repeat previous date nights within the 12 months.  As usual, our hopes were high to be able to get more creative with each date but due to some schedule constraints (traveling) we relied on some old tried and true date nights.  Here is what we ended up with by the end of 2018:

January  – Tablao Flamenco at Hotel Albuquerque
February – Brain Gang Trivia at the Canteen Brewhouse
March – BANFF Film Festival at the Lensic Performing Arts Center in Santa Fe, NM
March – 10 year wedding anniversary weekend at the Hyatt Tamaya Resort
April – Bien Shur for Birthday at Sandia Casino
May – Game of Thrones watching in Cedars Sinai hospital in Marina Del Rey, CA
June – Venice Beach, Malibu, Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles, California
July – FAIL
August – Buddy Guy/Jonny Lang Concert at Sandia Amphitheater
September – FAIL
October – Albuquerque Community Foundation dinner at Old Town Farm
November – Junior League “Nuclear Night Out” 1950’s Gala
December –  Facebook Christmas Party with Dueling Pianos at Sandia Casino

In addition to planning our unique couples time each month, we also wanted to make sure the children had unique and fun experiences each month too.  This is what we planned or rather, what fell into our lap:

January – Pinewood Derby in Cedar Crest
February – Shovel races & skiing in Angelfire, NM
March – Talent Show at Moriarty Civic center
April – FAIL
May – Texas vacation with Matt & Misty, and Yvonne
June – NE Heights Summerfest, Camping with Boyscouts
July – Fishing at Bluewater Lake
August – Facebook family day at Cliffs amusement park
September – Rain Gutter Regatta, 12 Hours of Albuquerque mountain bike race
October – Greek Festival and Balloon Fiesta
November – Texas vacation at Lake Travis and Ammansville, TX
December – Madrid Christmas Parade and Polar Express on Durango Railroad
