The day after
I didn't eat a pound but did enjoy the two meals with family and friends. About the only gaffe was when Jess, the new caregiver, was trying to get my mother-in-law to eat more than a few mouthfuls of string beans. My MIL looked at her and said, "Well, I thought that I liked you but now I'm not so sure." And then she laughed and said, "Just kidding". Okay....they will work it out. Old people and kids can say the damndest things.
I'm not going to any stores today if I can help it. Tomorrow is our anniversary, so I am going to get a card. We are going fishing and will spend a quiet day together.
I know that I was pretty nervous on this day those years ago when we were on the eve of our wedding day. It was cold in Virginia that year. And the little concrete block house where we lived was freezing cold that winter because the furnace didn't work well. I spent the night there alone as C. was staying at her parents' house that night. Now, here we are all these years later in our own house where there is warmth, fireplaces going, turkey soup cooking on the stove, and love still brewing.
Hope that you are having a relaxing day.
