365 days (and counting!)
Well, it's official, folks: Today is Tim's and my one-year anniversary!
Yep, we have spent one year as a married couple (plus two more dating). This is pretty impressive when you consider that we live in a 648 sq ft, 1 BR apartment.
Two people, for a full year, both with health problems and neither working outside the home! And we haven't tried to kill each other. Not even once!
I wish I could say we had grander plans for our anniversary, but both of us are pretty pooped. We were down at Tim's parents' place for the weekend, so we could celebrate Mother's Day. And Tim's skin is acting up a bit. So tonight we're going to kick back and watch some TV. We're shooting to celebrate on Tuesday, instead, skin permitting.
The first step is massage. A relative had a massage appointment where the therapist was significantly late. As a mea culpa, the masseuse offered a free 30-minute massage coupon. The relative then purchased a second one and gave both to us as an anniversary gift. Mom offered to pay to upgrade each to a one-hour massage -- also as an anniversary gift. This is one of the main reasons Tim's skin has to be clear.
Then we're going to go out for a nice dinner at a place called Pomodoro. Tim is absolutely in love with this restaurant. If he were still a single man, I fear Pomodoro would've gotten the proposal instead of me.
It's actually a nice place, though, and the chef has cooked on a few occasions for the King of Spain. Not too shabby! (And surprisingly decent prices.)
We may then go see a movie, because we're creatures of habit. It will depend on my energy and Tim's skin. No one can say we're not a couple of suckers for romance, eh?
Still, Tim and I have always been practical romantics. Frankly, I prefer a nice night out with him to a present that might add clutter. And I definitely prefer less debt, so for me, this evening is a win-win.
And now I am off to eat some cake that's been frozen for a year (his mom was very insistent about this particular tradition) and snuggle up with my sweetie.
