The anniversary dinner went really well. I’m the talk of the family! 🙂 The guestbook that had all sorts of pictures of my parents relationship together was a HIT. Everyone signed. Everyone was touched. My parents got fabulous presents. The food was great. Nine courses, not including dessert. There were three desserts, including the Taro crispy cake that I brought (bought and ordered – the easy way; I know I was going to bake it, but I have no clue how I would have had the time).
Completely unrelated to anything, have I mentioned that I love living in this age of technology? We were grocery shopping yesterday and Chloe had to use the restroom. Steven stayed with the cart and Chloe and I went off to the restrooms. Well, there was a man outside the women’s restroom, facing the corner wall, on the phone, but not talking and not moving. I don’t feel like he was threatening at all, but it was so strange. Anyway. I hurried Chloe into the bathroom and immediately texted my husband telling him that there was a strange man outside the women’s bathroom. By the time we were done and leaving my husband was standing outside the bathroom a few feet from the other guy. Love technology. (LOVE my husband.)
On to better things. Right now I have my sights set on Vegas. Countdown: 3 days!! Photoshop World, here I come. My boss agreed to let us get Wifi for our hotel room (you know – in case I need to email work or something; haha) so hopefully I’ll be able to check in while I’m there.
I have a lot to catch up on before I leave, but I’ll leave you with this snapshot of a conversation my daughter and husband had this morning:
Chloe: In school, all the boys are BAD.
Daddy: . . .my job is done. . .
Mommy: *cracking up in the background*
