Happy Anniversary

In just a little more than two weeks, my husband and I will celebrate our 5-year anniversary here. Our real anniversary is not until the end of September, but he'll be back teaching school and it's difficult for him to get time off. So we decided to celebrate early.

I am so looking forward to this trip. Four whole days of nothing but ourselves, lounging by the pool, getting a massage, eating a nice dinner without having to pick up spilled macaroni and cheese and grabbing the salt and pepper shakers out of reach of little grabbing hands. Sleeping in as long as we like, having some drinks out on the balcony, enjoying each other's company without interruptions from a little voice saying, "Excuse me, mommy." (I know I should appreciate that she's polite about it, but she still interrupts every conversation I have, and thinks it's OK because she said excuse me.)

How will I make it the next two weeks. Look at the place. It's amazing. I want to go now! Until then, we'll keep ouselves busy finishing up the office and finally getting things organized. 16 days and counting ...
