We took some time off and had a long weekend.  We celebrated our 1st anniversary by going out to dinner.  We still had a gift card from the wedding to a very nice local restaurant and even though we splurged with appetizers, etc. we still have 1/2 the gift card left and will plan to go again sometime.  

It was a nice weekend.  The weather was perfect and Ron cleaned out some of the flower beds.  Since I've been having so much trouble with my hip he even ran the vacuum and mopped for me.  That was sooooooo appreciated!  Why we even washed windows.  I can see clearly now the crud is gone....

Isn't it amazing how our wishes and wants change over the years?  How helping with housework becomes just about the most romantic thing your husband can do.  

On Sunday we went to a furniture store to look at recliners.  Poor Ron has been sitting in a dainty wingback chair ever since the wedding.  We need to find a wallsaver recliner that will fit his 6'2" frame.  We worked with a very pleasant woman who showed us a lot of options but we needed to take measurements to make sure the chair would fit in our small room.  In the course of our meeting Ron mentioned that it was our anniversary.  She asked how we met and Ron told her "1st grade".  This led of course to more questions and us gladly sharing our story.  As we left she said, "Maybe there is hope for me."  I couldn't help but remember how many times I said the same thing during my 34 years of being single. 

It's so wonderful having a partner in life and I adore him more every day!

Happy Anniversary!!

Mr. kenju and I are both tall, so when I went in search of recliners back in the 90's, two wall-saver, oversized chairs were just the ticket. I hope you find what you need.

Congratulations on your anniversary. I liked the line about helping with the housework making the guy look sexy...i have not experienced this yet.

Congrats on your first year. Hard to believe it has all ready been a year.
There is nothing sexier than a man in an apron or pushing a vacuum cleaner. I'd buy a calendar featuring that.
