I succeeded in turning my laptop off (but was even more successful at turning it back on later in the evening....)
I succeeded in preparing a delicious meal (as long as you consider introducing Ash to the frozen lasagna section of the grocery store "preparing a meal", and no, he still has no clue what a garlic press is)
I did not succeed in the burning candles arena, but we did manage to change the cat litter and take out all of the trash and recycling which is kind of the same thing...
So there. The night may not have taken the exact course as planned, but it did take a course and it ran with it and BY GOLLY I'm OK with that. So about that night? It was pretty good. Not fabulous, but good. In fact I'm IM'ing my husband about it right now from the other end of the couch.
