I’ve written about our anniversary four times now. Because you know my blog is four years old. The joke is getting old. But the gist of the story is that sometime in the next three days is our 10th wedding anniversary.
Also we may not actually be married. Good thing we are both now virgins again.
We’ve also never gone out for our anniversary. Ever. We had an almost five month old on our first anniversary so I was tired.
Also holy crap I just realized that Eloise is going to figure out this math pretty soon….Why do they teach math in schools. It’s like how shitty it is when your kids figure out how to tell time!
So we’ve decided to go out to dinner. We haven’t gone out to dinner since December 22, 2008. That was my 40th birthday and I was eight weeks pregnant and threw-up my entire meal. I haven’t been able to eat mushroom risotto since..and now you probably can’t either. You’re welcome.
Anyway, puking at on our last date pretty much turned me off from ever having a date again. Also I really like snuggling with my MacBook at night. And my iPhone and my iPad. It makes me wonder how many people can now blame the end of their marriages on Apple.
Raise your hand if you sleep next to your iPhone. I know you do.
So we made dinner reservations and then canceled them because our sitter fell through and actually I was kind of relieved because I love being in my jammies by 7pm and truthfully in the three years since I last ate at a fancy restaurant with dim lighting – my eyes have been failing and I now wear. ahem. reading glasses and would NEED them if I want to read the menu and there is no way in hell I’m bringing my reading glasses on the only date that I will have this decade so I would have to just order the special that the server tells me about and what if it’s risotto?
See – lucky we’re not going out.
But now my aunt is in town and wants to sit for us so our date is back on.
No worries though as I’ve already printed out the menu and am deciding my order in the best daytime light so I don’t have to look like the geriatric I am on our date.
And if that sound all romantic and all. Because OMG HOT… this is what Jed said to me last week when he realized that it’s been TEN YEARS since we married..
“See it just goes to show you that when you put the two most stubborn people on the planet together that BY DAMN they are going to stick it out and make it work til their death because they don’t want to LOSE!”
So I guess my marriage is kind of like the Hunger Games while we just wait to be the last one standing. Hopefully the restaurant is serving a nice wild berry torte. You know in case I want to order one for Jed.
So how do you celebrate your anniversary? And are you still a virgin?
