#Weekendcoffeeshare: Anniversary Edition


If we were having coffee…

Shit, what are we doing having coffee?  I’ve got packing to do!

This weekend (well, tonight, specifically) my lovely wife and I are celebrating our 8th year of marriage and our 2nd anniversary.  (Think about what year and month it is.)  We are generally homebodies and so we decided when we got married that, February already being crowded with other gifty holidays that we were ignoring, we were going to make our anniversary not a big thing other than every 4th year when the actual date of our marriage rolled around.  So today we’re dropping the boy off to spend the night at his grandparents’ for the first time and heading off for an insanely expensive meal and a night at a casino.

I don’t gamble.  This ought to be interesting.  I have perused the menu of the place where we’re having dinner, as the meal is far more significant to me than the gambling, and have discovered that there is a $120 steak on the menu.

I may not be able to pass up the opportunity to pay a hundred and twenty dollars for a chunk of cow.  And, conveniently, our tax refund showed up this morning.

But: point is, there’s a lot to be done before then, plus the actual driving, which isn’t obscenely far but the weather’s been crappy lately.  So let’s slurp the coffee down; I gotta bounce.  I’ll post a hotel room picture tonight, I promise.

  1. I love the story behind your once every four years anniversary. My husband would really love it. That $120 steak sounds like something. I’m sure you could get the whole cow for that price if you weren’t too fussy and was also prepared to drive.
    My son has an ag plot at his school and comes home telling me tales of herding pigs, pigs mating and smells a bit too much like pig as well after these classes. We live on hte edge of Sydney in a beach town so any form of agriculture is quite a novelty.
    Hope you have a wonderful time!
