Time for D

Our anniversary was great.  A lot better than last year where we got a day away from the kids and were headed out the door to spend the night at a historic hotel close to us but noticed at the last second that our basement was flooded.  We spent the next few hours bailing it out and by the time we were finished we were way too tired to do any celebrating, but we forced it anyway.  We ended up having a pretty good time after all.  That was our anniversary I am remembering, right? 

The room wasn't that great and I wanted a massage, but he didn't.  Then I wanted to go to the pool, but he didn't.  So we stayed in our room and then got something to eat AND THEN were able to enjoy some fireworks (the real kind for all of you with your mind in the gutter.)  It was pretty cool and we enjoyed our time together with just the 2 of us. 

This year there were no historic hotel plans.  I woke up on Saturday and asked him what he wanted to do.  Our plans - go eat.  Sounds great to me.  I may or may not have thrown a little fit about not having any clothes to wear.  We took the boys to my parents around 7.  Did a little shopping for some stinkin clothes and didn't eat until around 9.  I WAS STARVING!  And it was GOOD! 

Then we went to pick the boys back up and they begged to stay the night, ok Wyatt begged.  Waylon whined.  So they did, we went back home and decided to start watching a movie around 1:30AM.  Smart, I know.  So much for sleeping in and taking advantage of no kids.  I stayed awake through the whole thing.  SHOCKER!  It was pretty good.  Then off to dream land for the next 6 hours.

I say all of that to say after 14 years together, 7 official, nights like that are perfect for me.  We don't need no fancy celebrating or even a card!  We just need each other, being us and enjoying ourselves.  The only thing I would trade it for is a vacation to Hawaii.  Maybe year 10??!!

Thanks for the great night and for all of your help lately, babe!  It makes the world of difference to me even if I don't act like it.


  1. I really like your blog! I'm a new author and have enjoyed this new experience. I find that it's the most difficult and most rewarding. I'm also a graphic designer and love having that creative outlet as well.
    Thanks for your post! I will be back for more updates. :-)

  2. Hey, that is very nice of you to give Dale the little "thanks". I am glad you both had a good anni. Hope the summer goes great for you both and the kids.

  3. Glad your anniversary was flood free this year. I think sometime the least planned things are the best. I love just relaxing with one another. Congrats on the anniversary! Hawaii on year 10 would be so great!!
