Turning Forty - Dinner and a Movie
Today’s gift was an easy one to figure out. My note read “For today’s gift we’ll do something groovy. It is simply dinner and a movie.” We ended up eating at Pizza Hut which reminded me of our first date – eating pizza and attending a high school football game. Tonight we had pasta since I’m lactose intolerant, gotta love getting old, and I loved me some bread sticks. Since we live in the land of little choices the only movie playing, that we wanted to see, was Valkyrie, with Tom Cruise. Not a feel-good-movie by any means but it’s not about what you see but who you see it with. As our pre-movie entertainment I got to watch a cockroach walk around me until I couldn’t stand it anymore. Then I called in the reinforcements, aka the movie staff, and they took care of said bug. All my humanitarian efforts went out the window as the staff person stomped on the bug and swept it away. Oh so romantic!!!! Just another day in paradise!
I have been married to a wonderful man for over 21 years. The hubs will officially retire from the United States Marine Corps October 31st of 2014. The past 21 years have been a great adventure. One I wouldn't trade for the world!! Now we are moving forward into a new season of life and we look forward to seeing where God guides us!!!
