My wedding anniversary is tomorrow and my husband has done something romantic and thoughtful to celebrate. A few weeks ago he sent me an email with "no subject" written in the subject box. Now, the only time my hubby emails me is when he is forwarding school, sports, or scout information regarding our precious son. I opened it up and all that I saw was: www.julianhotel.com.
"Does this mean we are going to Julian, California for our anniversary?" I asked.
"Yes," my husband said.
"Why did you act like you didn't want to go when I suggested we take off on the football bye weekend?" I asked, remembering him telling me he had to work, even though he has a year's worth of vacation to burn.
"I don't like being told what to do," he replied.
"So, you were planning this all along, just pretending to act uninterested?" I didn't want to ruin the romantic moment, but I was curious.
"Like I said," he repeated, "I don't like being told what to do."
And there you have it. That is about as romantic and thoughtful as it gets around here, but I am not complaining! I am just happy to get out of town with the man I love sans the child.
And if you are wondering what I am getting my husband for a gift, the answer is: A broom handle. Seriously.
