It's official! I have been writing for a full two weeks.
To commemorate this success, it's only appropriate that
we talk about a fort night.
Fortnight noun \ˈfȯrt-ˌnīt\
a period of 14 days: two weeks
Fort Night noun \ˈfȯrt-ˌnīt\
a night dedicated to making the most spectacular fort using surrounding furniture & spare blankets.
One of my favorite stay at home dates is The Fort Night. It originally started as an impromptu date night save. The husband and I returned home from a not so great movie, and if I didn't act fast the date was on its way to falling flat. Shortly after walking in the door, (while Ramy was probably going through the mail,) I ran around from linen closet to linen closet collecting all the spare blankets, towels, and sheets I could muster up. I then started pulling chairs towards our couch to use as an anchor. Ramy looked at me perplexed, "What in the world are you doing?"
"Making a FORT!"
At first he thought I was crazy, but within minutes he got his inner architect out and before we knew it there stood a multi room fort in the center of the room. We laughed and played like we were kids again and then camped out in our living room for the night.
