As I write this, I am laughing about how crazy today was. I wish I could make this up but I really can't.
Okay so every year we plan something to do for our anniversary. Since we're both laid back type of people, our activities are always something that reflect that. I had the brilliant idea to plan us a trip to go kayaking on the lake, brunch and then bowling and dinner that night. Are you still with me? My mother-in-law came into town Friday to assist with our crumb snatcher so we could participate in those activities alone, in peace. Thursday it rains. Friday, the day before all these plans were to take place, it rained even harder. I'm telling Cedrick, babe we wont be able to go kayaking tomorrow. The lake will be flooded and the waters will be rough. Let me also insert here that I don't know anything about kayaking nor the lake. I've never been, never had a desire to go and cant swim in a tub of water so I avoid all water based activities. Cedrick? He loves being outside so I was willing to take one for the team. Okay? My mood went from I cant wait to experience something new with him to damn, did I really just sign myself up for a death sentence?! Moving on.
Friday evening I'm texting my sister Chetoria mad messages like sis this dude really wants to go kayaking tomorrow after all this bad weather! Of course she told me to go anyway and just enjoy the experience. No, come to think of it, she never responded but I know she was giving me the side eye for all that complaining.
Saturday finally arrived. The sun was shining and people were out running and biking. I had read up on all I needed to know about first time kayakers and besides, the water isn't that deep one person stated on yelp. Cool we got this! We got to the boathouse and boom, its under water. I secretly thanked God but together, we just laughed. That's what we do when something isn't going right. We laugh it off. Okay now we have all this extra time. What do we do? Lets go to brunch early. We did. The food was so bomb!! It made up for the failed kayaking trip.
Next stop, home. Play time with Caleb and conversations with MIL (mother-in-law). We wanted to go look at apartments in a neighborhood we are stalking but we couldn't get to it because of course the rain has the bridges and roads closed. Cool. Its finally time to head to the bowling alley. We get there and there's a 2 hour wait. More laughter from us. Failed activity number dos (2) We headed to dinner early. Dinner was also fire. Now what do we do? Lets head to the bookstore. Bookstore it is. We sat by the window and people watched and laughed at our luck. That is how we ended our anniversary weekend. Typical us.
Today was nothing short of crazy but its okay. We laughed our way through our failed activities and talked our way through brunch and dinner. We shared what these past 6 years has meant to us. I couldn't imagine backpacking through this life with anyone else but the man God created for me. He perfected him in a way that He knew I needed.
Here's to many more crazy adventures.
