Yesterday was our three-year anniversary, but it feels like so much longer. I guess it really has been longer, eleven years! I spent part of the day printing and the the rest of the night half-asleep on the couch watching For Keeps while waiting for Jake's flight to get in. His first flight from Long Island was canceled and the second was delayed. He didn't get home until 1:30 this morning. But, I did surprise him with a Play Station 3, which he has been wanting for quite some time. It wasn't really even for our anniversary, since we always take a trip instead of presents. It was for all of his help the past few weeks. Nothing says "I love you! Thanks for putting up with my shit" like a PS3.
He was speechless at first...but now I feel like I might have created a monster. He's obsessed with linking it to the internet. Who knew it would be this complicated?!
And just for kicks, here's a recent picture of us at a Clue-themed housewarming party. I was Mrs. Peacock and Jake was Prof. Plum. We were some of the only people who actually dressed up, but it was fun to wear one of my vintage hats from Susan's old collection and Jake found that amazing jacket at the first thrift store he went to!
I'm feeling much better today about life in general. I've finally realized that I can't print every day of the week. The day after a big printing day I tend to make excuses to stay home and work on new designs or catch up on email. I'm going to work this into my schedule now...only two or three non-consecutive days of printing each week. I think I'll actually be more productive this way. I'm actually glad that all of the events in the past few weeks took place. I have always felt that things happen for a reason and I try to find the lessons in difficult situations. I have learned so much and I'm actually feeling a bit rejuvenated. I'm looking forward to new adventures.
