Hopefully, you've deduced that given my lack of posting and tweeting and facebooking. I have that I've fallen off the social media bandwagon; I love to blog and this is my attempt at dusting myself off and giving it another go.

Anyway, we both bring home work on a nightly basis and after Toph goes to bed, we sit on our couch and instead of having quality couple time, we halfway work, halfway watch TV and halfway stare into space.
Lately though, we've been doing this thing where we look at funny things and laugh together. It focuses both our attention on the same thing and helps us scoot a little closer together while giggling our heads off.
