A really nice weekend

This weekend was especially nice. Carol, ending a new job and starting a new one, had three days off last week that she spent with Adolfo rather than sending him off to KIds Fun Camp. They went to the zoo, to the movies, did some swimming at the YMCA on 34th street and did some shopping together.

Friday night, we went to see Ratatouille and had a total blast. It was a truly beautiful film. It must also be pointed out that going to children's films on opening night is particularly fun for me. I love how excited the kids are - how they are hungrily scarfing popcorn, the mumbling and occasional hoot ... and when something funny happens on the movie screen the kids belt out an unforgiving laughter that is so infectious. Of course, every now and then you'll hear a, "Why is the mouse sad?" or some other angelic child-like question ...

That kind of simple fun is so satisfying to me.

Saturday was our 11th year anniversary of co-existence. My first reaction is, "...I can't really believe that it's been that long ... " but of course it HAS been that long. We have had our relationship ups and downs; our multiple apartments/cities/jobs; we've gotten married; bought a house, had two children; run up debt in both our names; owned cars; bought furniture (however crappy); cooked dinners; seen movies; gone to restaurants; visited other countries; tended each other's headaches, etc...

and had fun the whole time.


  • what the fa-la-la does that "simple fun" link have anything to do with simple fun - that is just so wrong

  • Adolfo called our outing to the zoo a "Date" because it was just him and me - he had such a wonderful time and took pictures of a purple headed lass he took a fancy to
