The "D" Date - Don't Go!

Date Challenge: Date must occur on a weekday!

Date Title: Don't Go!

Upon glancing at the information so far, one might think - weird. Yes, I suppose it is a little strange. This date happened at the last minute. It was unexpected in many ways. My husband and I found out his brother and our sister-in-law might move to Nashville. Then, really, we found out it was probably a done deal.

In an effort to remind them of what they would be leaving (I mean we are awesome!), we decided to take them out to dinner and attempt to convince them they needed to stay here in Kansas City. This date turn out a bit weird. So, we went to Mr. Sushi, their favorite place to eat here in the area, and we talked about the decision, that seemed to suddenly come down.

What did we learn? Well, mostly, that they were going back to Nashville, and my grand plan that included my sister-in-law watching my kids and our kids going to grade school together, was just plan. No one elses.

At the end of the day, while this was a date, it really didn't end up very "date-like" since it concluded with realizing my brother and sister-in-law (along with my niece and nephew) would soon reside in the Nashville area instead of the Lee's Summit area.

There was a great sadness. :(
