Happy Anniversary to Us!

We celebrated our anniversary yesterday! Together! On the actual day!

For some reason, IHC always schedules Paul to be on call on our anniversary. We've had takeouts and a movie in the call room more times than I can remember.

On our 35th anniversary we were going to make up for it with a romantic weekend in St. George at the Green Gate Inn. I ended up spending the weekend alone when a wildfire closed the freeway and Paul couldn't get there (I had flown down in advance to play piano for a wedding reception).

This year I dropped a few hints about a trip to Vegas and tickets to the Love Show, but I got the Love CD for Mother's Day at least.

But this year, although Paul was on call during the day, he got home around 6:00 p.m. and grilled steaks for us. We broke out a couple of his birthday Almdudlers and had a lovely celebration.

Paul is an amazing person who is equally nice at work and at home. Someone he works with is pretty inept, so when employee evaluations come around he refuses to fill one out because if he wrote the truth she would lose her job. When someone pulled out of a parking lot and rammed right into the side of our car where he was sitting, Paul climbed out through the remaining undamaged door and asked the other driver if she were OK. If he comes home and there's no dinner ready, he's willing to eat creamed tuna on toast.

Paul once said that all he wants out of life is for people to be nice to each other, and I think he meant it. I try to make sure that, even if dinner is late and the vacuuming is behind, we always have nice. And so does he.

Thirty-eight and counting.
