Anniversary and an update

Hi, DH here!  This is a general “catch-up” post - I feel like I have’t relayed any news lately, just porn lol!  So I will attempt to give you an insight into how we’re doing.

Julia and I celebrated our 13th year of marriage this weekend!  Our journey together has been the absolute best part of my life.  On Saturday night, our neighbor friends took the kids for a sleepover, and we went out on a date.  We went to the Old Spaghetti Factory, which was really good!  I remember going to the one in Spokane when I was a kid, but it was so long ago the building was made of brick, and the spaghetti was made right there in the factory and then came shooting off a conveyor belt onto your table, almost putting your eyes out.  Well, not quite like that ;).  But the current incarnation of the restaurant is nothing like I remembered.  We sat in the bar and really enjoyed ourselves.  Neither of us are drinking (he said foreshadowingly), so I can’t tell you how the liquor was, but the shrimp appetizer was great, and our meals.

We were going to go see Hail, Caesar! but after dinner we were so full we didn’t want to sit through a move.  Instead, we went shopping.  Julia loves the World Market, where we bought some chocolate and jam, and then we hit up the 1/2 price bookstore.  We also went to two baby stores.  Julia wanted to find a new sleeper that we could bring home a baby in, and then pass down to our girls when it’s their turn.  We looked at Babies ‘R Us and didn’t have any luck, but at the second baby store (I forget the name), I found a simple white sleeper, with the words “Welcome to the world” surrounded by stars.  She loved it, and we bought the very first thing for the baby.

I’m nearly to Seattle on the train, and Julia is probably at work at her new job, where she’s doing bookkeeping part-time for a yacht charter company.  She only has to work a couple of days a week, and she’s home in plenty of time to meet the kids after school.  Perfect!  We didn’t show them the new sleeper, and we haven’t had the talk with them about how families change and grow.  Yet.

But we will.  :-D


I hope everyone has a great Monday, and a really good start to the week!

    1. Hi Pearl, yes! Well, here's the short version, lol: I got a vasectomy in 2008 and then last summer, got it reversed, and we've been trying ever since and now... she's positive! Very early still so we're not trumpeting the news, but it's a thing. :-D
