Resolutions, Schmesolutions!

No, I haven't given up on my resolutions. Clearly, I'm struggling with #3 (journaling/blogging more regularly). And I'm not exactly on track with #1 (continue to lose weight) - thank you, Mother! She doesn't eat sweets as a rule so she decided to share - via shipping a large box UPS - of the cookies, candies, etc., she may have received during the holiday. Everything dark chocolate has been consumed (by me) and Dear Hubby, the kids and I (mostly I) are working our way through the milk chocolate. (sigh)

Tomorrow Dear Hubby and I are going to spend the day in the Big City, playing tourist. Afterwards, we'll attend his office's post-holiday cocktail party. Definitely not a day to count Weight Watchers points. We'll stay overnight Saturday. The kids will spend the night at my father-in-law's house. It's become an anniversary tradition of sorts.

Our 18th wedding anniversary was on Sunday, January 6th. Yesterday was the 21st anniversary of when we started dating. And our best man* said it wouldn't last. ha ha.


* He actually said that to Dear Hubby's sister at our wedding. He had room to talk! His own 2 and a half year first marriage was breaking up at the time and he was chasing all of my bridesmaids. He eventually remarried, had children, divorced a second time and last we heard - back in 1999 - was engaged again. He asked Dear Hubby to be his best man at wedding #3 and then we never heard from him again. Would it be awful if I said I was somewhat relieved?

Congratulations and Happy Anniversary. You know Tom & I still celebrate our dating anniversary (30 years next month) and wedding (27 in June). I'm glad to see others do the same.

oh, lala, that sounds yummy! Where did you ever find them?

nadine, we don't make as big a fuss over the dating anniversary since it's only four days after the wedding anniversary but we do acknowledge it - usually with a lunch out or something.

Congratulations on your anniversary!! You must have been a child bride : ) !!

I hope you and hubby had (have?) a wonderful time in the big city..

Thank you, sue, for the compliment (not quite, but I guess technically Dear Hubby was a Child Groom!), and the good wishes. We did have a very nice time.
