Two Reasons to Celebrate
Reason one was that it was our thirty-eighth anniversary; reason two was that it was Smudge's fourth weekaversary. We've all changed a lot in our own time frames. Cuppa and I look a lot different (see her blog later for older photos), and Smudge has changed greatly. She begins to be much more aware of her surroundings. She looks into our eyes and tracks our movements to some degree. The poor wee one is not having good days lately, however, with her tummy problems.
Cuppa and I celebrated the day in typically understated fashion. Aside from two visits with Smudge, we went went into town, picked up a few items, saw a movie, and had pizza for supper. Living the high life, eh?
That's what we do on every anniversary — get a pizza. We ordered one into our hotel room in Stratford on our wedding night and have followed the tradition every year since. Unfortunately, we didn't follow it well enough last last. We decided to get a little wild and order a Thai Chicken pizza. Let's just say that people with stomachs more delicate than cast iron shouldn't do that.
However, it sat within us well enough through the film, Georgia Rule. Reviews weren't terribly wonderful, but we decided to try it anyway, and we both quite liked it. It's a chick flick, I guess, but I like most chick flicks — better than car chases and wanton mayhem anyway.
