The Single Life

Two posts in one day! Wow!

I am so in love with my husband. And I love our life together... I call it living the single life together, but by that I mean its just me and him. No kids. I cherish all the moments we are able to do things just the two of us that we wouldn't be able to do with kids...

This morning after church, Sean took me on a mystery adventure. He didn't tell me where we were going, just to get in the car... and we were off! We went up 41, towards Yosemite about 45 minutes towards the mountains. It was absolutely beautiful. Next thing I knew, we were pulling into the Chukchansi Resort and Casino... so much fun! Since we have to be at church on my birthday (Wednesday) he thought we'd get away up there just for a fun afternoon. We had a great time playing the slot machines. We played with $20 a piece for almost two hours, and at one point I was up $50! It was great! Then we had a deliciously amazing champagne brunch in one of the restaurants there... we sat by a window that overlooked the mountains. It was so much fun to just pick up and go on a whim like that.

Then, just a bit ago, after we spent an hour trying to coax our silly yellow cat, Seal, out of our neighbor's bushes, I got hungry and went for an orange, only to find the underside was covered with mold. Yeah, that's about as often as I go grocery shopping. So, Sean and I decided to go for a little late night Sonic run, just like the old days, in College. It was great! We shared a jumbo popcorn chicken and had strawberry limeades. We sat with the windows down, talking, listening to the music and watching the other late-night noshers.

People always (and I mean ALWAYS) ask us, "When are you going to have kids?" Its like there's some unwritten time line everyone is supposed to follow: date for at least a year, get married, have kids after two years, have second kid after 24 months, and follow up with third kid 24 months after second kid. Maybe someday I'll want that, but not right now... we've been married four years and have just embarked on our 5th year of marriage, and I can't imagine our life any differently. There's something so fun about being able to just go where we want to go, when we want to go. We have a freedom that many of our friends don't have and to be honest, I"m fine with that. I enjoy it.... so today was a good day. Just me and my honey (and our wandering cats), living the single life together.
