a swell anniversary.


*



and sometimes one's anniversary celebration must be postponed. no fancy dinner out for this girl. chicken soup from a carton was on the menu along with lots of water, lotion infused tissue, and cough drops .. that guy i'm married to was just fine with chicken soup from a carton. he's swell. and soon enough, sometime next week, we'll dress up a bit (i'll wear my newest crocs! wink) and head out for some fine cuisine. or a burger. or tacos. who knows? and what does it matter 
as long as we're together, hm? and maybe we'll stop by "big-donalds" for a soft serve ice cream cone.

imagine this if you will :::
before dragging myself to bed we heard the evening motorcycle (8:30 like clockwork) stop at the signal light with music blaring ..
that guy always plays great oldies music. 
and so, with tissue stuffed up my nostrils (cuz i'm classy like that), 
the hubs gathers me into his arms and while holding me close we dance for about 10 seconds before the cycle guy takes off again. 
ain't love grand?

  3. Love is grand my dear.... Sorry to hear you are under the weather....sick sick sick! Yuck it's so hard to be sick and enjoy being cooped up and in bed.... I so enjoy your humor in writings, and your honest feelings as to how you feel, no fluff from you just pure honesty.

    I was really taken with the motorcycle guy and his oldies that you and your amazing hub took a moment to share in a dance.... What I do want to know is what song was it? You kept us hanging here.
    We need to know the song to see the whole picture here.

    Take care dear, wellness is being sent your way, your heavenly medical doctor is assuring you of that.

    Please do share how the postponed anniversary night out plays out, and all the juicy details in where your taste buds took you, and soft cones are the best way to end the night.

    Talk soon,

    Xx

    Don't for get to use that Vicks rub, old fashioned but it really helps, and steam, steam, steam those sinuses!

    Xx

    1. no fairy-tale-make-believe coming from me...nosiree! ;) just the facts ma'am.

      we couldn't figure out which song it was...we were wondering aloud but kept on dancing. and really, when the mood's right who needs music to dance? we make our own music - and look dorky dancing to it.

      sinus spray is my friend. and massaging my lymph nodes in face and neck... oh, and hot tea, carmex ointment, ricola cough drops, lots of tissue, elevated head and shoulders while sleeping, oh - - and my inhaler. i'm a hot mess. but sure i'm getting better from here on out. just a bump in the road.
