18 years is a long time, almost 2 decades. And if you count the time we spent together before we got married then we can say that we have been together for 20 years. It has not been all Mai-Thais and Yahtzee of course. But when our server asked us last night what our secret was I replied with one word: patience.
Today is our official anniversary, but we kind of made the weekend into an extended celebration. Friday night the little ones had a sleepover at their friend’s house. So we grilled steaks, had some steak fries and salad and watched Deadpool.
Then last night we had our fancy dinner out at the Melting Pot. Where we ate some incredible food. Had a good time, laughing and joking. And then went home and got the kids to bed for school one last time. And relaxed.
And today, our official Anniversary, we will meet for lunch. It is not the extended celebration we have planned for a couple of years down the road. When we will take a big extended trip to somewhere fancy. But I still enjoyed this year.
On other notes, it was a good weekend. I got a lot of work done. Tackling the mowing and weed eating, with Jimmy’s help. The yard still looks terrible. But at least it is not overgrown, and you can at least see the few flowers that are there. And the house got picked up. And we stocked up the house with groceries for the kids to eat over the week.
It was a good bridge weekend for the end of the school year and beginning of summer. The weather even cooperated for once.
