Sixteen Years Ago Today

I started "going out" with Mike. Well, by that, I mean we got together at a college party, spent the night together (no, we did not have sex!) and parted on excellent terms. It was the 4th March when we finally began to officially be "boyfriend/girlfriend". But, we like to think of the 29th February as our actual anniversary, partly becuse it's a more interesting date to have as an anniversary. When we got married, we married on the closest Saturday to the 29th February, four years later. We wanted to get married on the 29th, but it was a Thursday. So, Sunday is our twelth wedding anniversary. Two years ago, we had a party for our tenth anniversary at a bar in town. Last year I was pregnant, and we agreed not to have presents. It was miserable, and I never want to have that again.

So, this year, we are going out to dinner, and I have bought Mike a nice present (it's a bag, a Kickers one, so he can put his lunch, iPod, papers and everything he needs for work or if he goes for an overnight) and a card. It's also Mothers Day on Sunday, so I hope that he has made an effort.

I had such a nice week off with my boys last week. I really still don't know what I'm going to do about working - I like it and Ted's happy enough, but it's not all that's important.

I'm thinking of starting another blog, a project one, like "what I wore everyday" or ate every day or similar. Not sure which

I was always conflicted about the work thing too. Whatever is best for your family and you. I wish I'd chosen to work part time instead of full time.

I've been thinking lots about you gals too today - not in a mwahahaha way though, just hoping you were having fun and that Sal had a good drive :o)

Will think about the name... DH might take some persuading though.

Still twinges regularly here but nothing productive... will let you know, of course, if things kick off.

Have a tall glass of something lovely for me :o)

Happy Belated Anniversary Zoe. (I've been shockingly terrible at reading and updating my blog lately. Sorry I missed this news when it was timely.

I think your present for Mike is very practical and thoughtful.

Have you decided anything re: work?

I like to read about couples who still like each other after so many years. I think I'm in that crowd too.

For what it's worth, I wrote pretty much your EXACT post from February 8th on my blog a while ago too. That babymaking and mommying thing is tough. I hear you sister.

I've tagged you on my blog. So now you have homework. :)
