Every Day is Saturday

Finding Joy in the Here and Now

Happy Anniversary! Happy Father’s Day!

on June 16, 2013

The 16th of June this year is a busy day – Father’s Day, my wedding anniversary, and the final round of the U. S. Open golf tournament (a very big deal around here).  My husband, Eric, and I went out for breakfast today and he went off to work for a while.  We’re going to see a friend this afternoon in a short production, then out to dinner, then meet back up with friends for drinks later.  It’s been a long time since we celebrated our anniversary with anyone; I”m looking forward to it.  I don’t know when we’re going to watch the golf!

This is our 16th anniversary.  So hard to imagine!  At breakfast we talked about our wedding day.  We got married on a Monday so our theatre friends could come (and it wound up costing about 1/3 as much!).  It was a hot, muggy day here in Atlanta, and because we were doing things on the cheap, my husband and his brother (his best man) wound up unloading cases of drinks in their tuxedos.  They got really sweaty, and had to strip off in the men’s room.  Eric loves to tell that story!  It rained just as our guests were arriving, but, being theatre people, we took that as a good sign – rain on opening night is good luck in the theatre world.  And I suppose good luck it has been, in all the ways that matter.  We’re still married, happily, all these years later, and I don’t expect that will change.

My Dad is off on a trip, so I probably won’t talk to him until he gets back.  We have something we have to work through, courtesy of the appearance of my diary on Amazon.  I’ll be glad to get that conversation over and done, and move on.

So, I’ve got a few hours of quiet, then off to celebrate!  It’s a good day!
