Date Lottery

My husband and I are often looking at each other and saying, "What do you want to do?".... "I don't know, what do you want to do?".... and so on. We go on this way for a while, pause for a bit, and then start it all over again. We aren't very good with coming up with ideas on the spot, or making decisions.  

Because of this, I came up with our "Date Lottery", which really isn't meant to always be for a date, but mostly for us to draw something out of it when we can't decide what to do and don't want to sit around staring at each other.  

The list of things in our "Date Lottery" are very simple and fun things we enjoy. You can make your list anything you want. I just took pieces of paper and wrote on them in different colored pens and put them in the large jar. Then, when we finish one, I put it in the smaller jar. When they are all done, we start over.

We have had a lot of fun with some of them, but I will admit that we also sometimes draw something out of the big jar, don't like it and put it back for a later day. Some of the items are also dependent upon the weather and can only be done in either the Summer or the Winter. We just skip those if we draw them out during the wrong season; we put them back in the big jar for later.
