7 years ago tomorrow I married my best friend and soul-mate. I can’t imagine my life without him, and I’m glad I don’t have to. We’re going to Chicago for our anniversary. I’m so pumped out of my mind! We’re going to check out improv olympic for some good laughs and then the back room for some good ole Chicago blues. But being without kids, we really can do as little or as much as we want. We get to decide!!! I really hope that I can soak in the night life! I’ve been so tired this pregnancy, although I just started the 2nd trimester, so hopefully I’ll notice a change soon. But I’ve also been fighting off a cold, so I’m doing all I can homeopathically–lemon oil on my feet, eucalyptus oil in a vaporizer, drinking elderberry syrup and eating as much garlic as I can stomach while being pregnant. It’s amazing how powerful nature is in healing our bodies. I’ve so loved learning how safely to treat illness rather than running to a drugstore and suppressing the symptoms, finding methods that are safe during pregnancy and for our kids..and work!!
But this was supposed to be about our anniversary…7 years. Wow. It doesn’t seem like that long, and yet, I feel like we’ve known each other all our lives. Last year, he bought me the song “I am the Luckiest” by Ben Folds (we do songs rather than cards). I’ve been trying to come up with one so fitting this year, but I can’t. I really feel very very very lucky and blessed. And I love anniversaries in that there are many days he comes home, kids are needing fed and crazy, and I’m not really in the right frame of mind to say how much I appreciate and adore my husband…so I’m excited to now. And I just love bumming around the city with him.
In other news…I don’t know when I’ll get around to posting next, so Andy built the boys a bunkbed. It’s amazing. They’ve been sleeping in it for 1 week. Together. The 2 of them. I’m just completely shocked there haven’t been all-out wars. Miles is very particular about what is left in his room–every night before bed, we have to get things back in order, or he’ll call us in “Mom, there’s a piece of black fuzz on the carpet!” No joke. So the first time they had to share a room on vacation, he was like “Mom, you forgot Jack!” “No honey, he’s going to sleep in here tonight.” It never went well. But lo and behold, a week has passed, and it’s worked! So here’s the pics. I want to decorate their room unique and special to the both of them, BUT Jack is so into tractors, farms, John Deere, etc…and Miles is more into Pier 1 style. SO, I’m having a hard time meshing the 2. Someone suggested painting wheat on the walls, in a cool monochromatic way…any other ideas?!?
