Twenty Years and One Big Surprise
Mr. Pop was away Thursday and Friday of this past week working on a new project his lab is involved with. He got home late Friday afternoon. After he grabbed a quick shower we went out for a very casual dinner. At the restaurant we were sitting at the bar waiting for our table. Mr. Pop turned to me and asked me where I would like to go to dinner next week to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. I told him it didn’t matter to me and he could choose. Then he said, “We won’t be home.” After I realized what he said, I just looked at him and in my most stupid way and I said, “Huh?”. He said it again, “We won’t be home.” Okay, this time I heard him correctly and said, ”Where will we be?” He said, we’ll be here.
In shock, I asked, “ Are you serious?” He smiled and said, “Yes”. Ever the thinker ahead-er, I asked, “What about the pets?” He said, “I’ve already arranged for them to be taken care of at the vets office.” He said, “Everything is taken care of and we will leave Monday morning and return Thursday afternoon.”
Yep, there is a permanent silly grin on my face and I am overwhelmed by all this. So you won’t be seeing a post from me until probably Friday, because I’m off celebrating the 20th year of something they said would never last and I’ll be celebrating with the most wonderful person in my life.
(The picture is a moth we saw on the outside light at his lab when we stopped by Saturday morning. The idea hit me that I am drawn to Mr. Pop just like that moth is drawn to the light. The moth and I know it’s the right thing for both of us.)
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY SWEETHEART. I LOVE YOU!
