We are so married (and other updates)
As you can see, Dave and I got each other the same exact cards for our anniversary. This can only mean one thing: We are SO married. Also, we are both the types to reach for the biggest cards at the card store. Hmmm.
Dave's present was carted away (alive and kicking) by the local exterminator. Felicia, next time we will try your remedies but we had to act fast, given that we were going away and Judy Doodie, kind as she is, wasn't up for babysitting the squirrel, too.
We had a wonderful time at The Water Club in Atlantic City. My threshold of expectations was admittedly low; I just wanted to sleep late in a comfy bed. I only made it till 9:30 a.m., but it felt damn good. Saturday afternoon, we did nothing but lounge near the pool (on the 32nd floor), read magazines and stare out at the view. Heaven. Then we had a memorable dinner at the Borgata's Izakaya Japanese restuarant; sushi is one of my favorite foods, and if I ever die of mercury poisoning I hereby leave this blog to all of you. As well as all the squirrels in our home.
We are not big gamblers, although I'm happy to sit and play blackjack for a couple of hours; Dave prefers roulette. I play the low-end tables, so we still have enough money left to do things like paying people to escort rodents out of our home and getting Max a haircut.
Which we finally did after we got home. I was afraid someone here was going to report us for child neglect.
In other news, Sabrina's developed an interesting habit of hiding under the Snuggie with Max's iPad. But we are on to her.
Hoping you all got some sort of break this weekend, too. Or that at least you had no need to call an exterminator.
When's the last time you and your husband got away for a couple of days without the kids?
