Today is my anniversary. We decided a number of years ago to forgo the presents and just opt for some splurge we wanted and dinner at a nicer restaurant than we usually enjoy. We will go to Bonefish Grill and dress up and order an appetizer, and a really nice entree, which Frank won't do because he has a flare up of gout and can't eat meat or protein or flour or chicken or anything with a sauce or asparagus or dried beans and legumes or fish, mushrooms or spinach which makes me wonder why we are going out to eat at all.......but I digress.
We did have lunch at a different (yucky lunch of really bad Caesar salad that was WAY too anchovy-ish for me) restaurant with a favorite couple, Dan and Amber. They are a great pair to be with. She has gorgeous hair and a dry sense of humor that is tinged with a glint of fun in her eye. And he is one of the happiest people I have ever met. He always has a nice thing to say, and always notices when I get my hair done when Frank NEVER notices even though the appointment is listed on the board of my daily activities right there in the kitchen for all to see........but I digress.
Daughter Carrie will probably not even remember the date. I reminded her last weekend that our anniversary would be today and she informed me that she does not give anniversary presents. So there. But I bet she won't even have a card, which is cheap and easy and just thoughtful and since she is married for a year now she should know that an anniversary these days is meaningful and it would make us feel good just to be remembered..........but I digress.
So what I wanted to say in the beginning of all this, before I digressed and all, is that today is our anniversary and we have been married for 38 years now. Amazing. I would have never even thought it would have lasted this long. And some of it has even been fun!
glen: he is lucky he ended up with me, no one else would have put up with his mother......but I digress. And the dogs love him.
