Well...there isn't really much to tell you.
Dh arrived home from work shortly after 3pm and we all got ready to head for Steak & Ale. We got caught in some traffic, which is entirely normal for that time of day... I wonder why no one seems to work normal hours in this city. The only time that the roads are clear are from like 8:30am to 10ish and from 1:30pm to 2ish. Every other time you get stuck.
Anyway, after driving an hour we reach Steak & Ale and are seated immediately. We got sat in the bar and on the TV they had the local PBS station on with cartoons... Darly enjoyed it even without the volume as she had already seen these shows and could tell us what was happening.
We ended up with a rather loud and pushy waiter who talked Darly into trying her first Shirley Temple (she loved it!) and he talked us into having the kitchen split our order for us (usually DH & I share a dinner and cut it ourselves). Which turned out nice too...and we don't know why, but they gave us two full potatoes...we were expecting just one. I guess they're cheap enough.
During our meal the waiter tells us that he is being sent to the office supply store to pick up some copy paper. He says that someone else will be taking care of us...but then he procedes to bring our check, see if we need to go boxes and finish up our order... DH & I were wondering "when is this guy ever going to leave?"
So we had our nice dinner and drove home. Traffic was much better on the way home but along the same part of the road we got stuck again. This time it was a truck that had broken down. But the time we got up to it, the tow truck had it all loaded and was just about to take off. The drive home only took about 30 min total.
We got home and changed out of our nice "going out to dinner" clothes. And then we exchanged our gifts. Darly made me a coaster out of those beads you melt with the iron. She gave DH a new level that we got at Target. And DH gave me a frame. When he was in central America he had gotten me this painting on a feather and for our anniversary present, he had it framed for me. I gave him two dress shirts and he had lots of fun figuring out which of his ties would go with them.
And that's all folks. Seriously. I'm not kidding.
Oh I forgot to mention that DH got me a card that is supposed to be one you would send to someone else having an anniversary...not for your wife. I'm not sure what his deal is...he just doesn't seem to have it in him to pick out a decent card. I mentioned last time that he might try looking in the section that says WIFE, but when he does that he comes home with the cards that have cartoons on them and say I do all this bad stuff, but I sure love you. Hummm... we must fix this card buying problem.
