The Seven Year Itch

It's our seventh anniversary today. Wahoo us! I'm not sure what itches, you know the funny thing about this whole seven year itch thing is that I actually think that in some ways, things with us are better than ever. So here's my toast to That Man... Axe Murder style:

Shut it!

I’d like to propose a toast to my husband Randy.

Seven years ago today, Randy and I were married. Some you were there, some of you weren’t born, and some of you are deed. But, we both said I do, and we haven’t agreed on a single thing since. Except on important issues such as the value of duct tape in dealing with our children. But I’m glad I married you, Randy, because eh, it could have been worse. And besides, I still love you.

And I have to say, he did a very wonderful thing for me. I sort of knew about half of it, but not totally, and the other half completely blew me away. Remember the Mother's Day fiasco, where I was very specific in what I wanted? Well, of course, I didn't get it and I was slightly peeved. Half of the anniversary gift was a gift certificate to spend the night at a nearby hot springs spa-alone. Weird, for our anniversary, but he literally was prepared to send me off by myself tonight. I have to say, that is the best gift and most amazing sacrifice. He's a pretty sentimental guy, so to let me leave on our anniversary... I asked him if he picked tonight because it was a scheduling issue or what, and he said no, his schedule is open, but he wanted to do this for me. I told him that I'd rather spend our anniversary together and I can go to the spa later in the week. :) So he done good and I'm pretty twitterpated. Almost to the point that I'm half tempted to ask him to come. But then I get selfish and think... a whole day and night alone at the spa...

The other half, which I think I mentioned when I found the envelope addressed to him from the Center for the Performing Arts, is he got me tickets for us to go to a show. I didn't know which show, the turkey wouldn't tell me. But now I know, and it was exactly the show I'd hoped for: Movin Out , which is based on Billy Joel's song, Movin Out. :) I adore Billy Joel. Probably my first favorite musician. I've loved him since I was, well, since as long as I can remember. The only other song I remember from my early childhood is the theme song from The Greatest American Hero. :)

Anyway... I felt bad that I didn't get my cool gift ready, but I did have another thing I'd gotten him and he likes it, so it's all good. :) I'd thought, from the sounds of what he'd planned that we were going out, but instead it was that he was sending me out. Since I couldn't find a babysitter, we ended up going to Casa Bonita and taking the kiddos. It was a lot of fun.
