Actually, so far it hasn't gone as planned.
About 10:00 a.m. daughter cub called from school not feeling well so had to pick her up.
Went to a nice steak lunch. At the end, our waiter apologized for having "been in the weeds." He was young, said they had been surprisingly busy and hadn't expected so many for lunch since Monday and Tuesday had been WAY slow.
I told him it was probably that after the debate last night people were more hopeful and energised, ready for change and came out to celebrate the Kerry Edwards win, which was why we were there.
He said "Maybe. You might be right."
Bear said, "Actually it's our 16th anniversary. We are celebrating the best 16 years of her life."
Waiter boy said "Well, I suppose that might be true. It probably beats not having those 16 years."
Well, yeah, I suppose 16 years of marriage is better than death!
Bear and I started laughing, and I don't think waiter boy ever realized he had made a funny.
Get home and have the boy cub run in with Dad that Bear posted on another thread.
Bear has taken his full belly up to bed. Little cub DID vacuum eventually, so I have nothing to do... Maybe I'll start planning our 17th.
BTW, thanks everyone for the well wishes. It really has been a good 16 years, or at least they've been better than death!
