I am a bad wife.
Not according to my husband, though.
He says I am perfect.
Far from it, I say.
Case in point....
Phone conversation from yesterday:
Hubbs - " Hi Hon. Hey, I was thinking,
since our anniversary is in two days,
and I will be on call,
how about we go out for dinner tonight to celebrate."
Me- "What? Our anniversary isn't for another month!"
Hubbs- "No, it's Friday, Hon."
(OMG I forgot our anniversary!)
I cannot tell you why,
but I never remember our anniversary.
And I have to tell you,
my husband is the center of my universe.
I love being married to this man...
I just can never remember the day.
Maybe it's because we did not have a big wedding...no planning....
just got married one day.
The wedding was not as important as the marriage.
Well, I had to make up for this faux pas.....
I decided that instead of going out for dinner,
I would surprise Hubbs with dinner "out"...
out in the middle of our hundred acre wood.
Afterall, he loves my cooking best.
Not to mention there are few restaurants
out here in the country.
I loaded up the gator with a table and chairs,
place settings, candles, wine....
made a special dinner for us and transported it
right to that clearing in the woods.
Hubbs was surprised....
We had a lovely dinner...
as nice as any restaurant
without having to drive
or spend a dime.
We finished our dinner with some herbal tea,
talked and laughed.
A truly wonderful memory was made...
one that I think will become an anniversary tradition.
And I'm out of the doghouse!
