Happy Anniversary

Happy Anniversary to Me! OK, and Dave too I guess. New Year's Eve is our anniversary, and I haven't killed him yet! (He says I'm a saint.) It's 23 years, in case you're keeping track. I told someone recently who had been married for just over a year that staying married this long is the hardest thing I've ever done. But as I told someone some years ago -- I made a commitment, and what kind of commitment would it be (and what kind of person would I be?) if I threw in the towel when things got difficult? [Btw, he went ahead with the divorce anyways. Apparently persuasiveness is not one of my strong suits.]

We had dinner at The Cheesecake Factory, that's my cheesecake flaming above there (picture courtesy of Dave's cell phone). We were unimpressed with the restaurant. We'd go back if we got gift certificates again (why we went), but otherwise, not.

Very little knitting going on here. The Husby is ready to start the shoulder/neck shaping on the back. (The thing is HUGE!) I've been spending my time reading this on my commute. It's riveting. And if you happen to know anyone looking to hire an Access 2000 Developer...

I miss socks. I've been using my 2007 Knitting Pattern-A-Day Calendar at work. Today's pattern was for slippers. I think I can modify it to make Elf Slippers for next year, along the lines of these (crocheted) ones.

OHHHH! If you do modify, you must share with me!! and of course submit for next year's calendar! Happy Anniversary, too. Marriage is terribly time consuming, more work than anyone could convince me it could be, and since I married the right guy (too, like you) the only option even on the worst days (like when the guest room loses it's name to become Grandma's room.) Keep up the good work- Here's to the next 23! Cheers!
