It was much as like our first anniversary. Last year, we celebrated with a weekend in NY. Yes, yes, we were already living in NY, but Jeff and I decided, rather than going away for a weekend, to stay in a nice hotel and live it up in NY for a night (which was perfect since we were getting ready to move away.) Well, that weekend ended up being somewhat disastrous and painful (for Jeff) who got some kind of food poisoning or sickness after eating a fancy steak, and we went home early after a night of vomiting and nausea.
So this year, it wasn't a surprise when things didn't go as planned. We'd planned to have a nice dinner, to go to a movie and to spend the night reflecting on all of God's blessings in our lives. We ended being able to do most of that, but I spent the whole morning and afternoon suffering from a scratch on my eye, like actually on my eyeball, underneath my upper eyelid. We went to my primary care physician in the morning, who referred us to an opthamologist. I spent most of the day with my eyes closed (which makes cooking a nice meal and wrapping presents and writing cards really hard to do!) and just feeling miserable.
But praise God for doctors and drugs! After the opthamologist, I felt a little better (he gave me drugs and various eyedrops) and made dinner (roasted cornish game hens, parmesan smashed potatoes and green beans) which turned out to be pretty good. I even felt up to making dessert, which was a butterscotch cake (soooo good.)
So we'll be celebrating-celebrating again at the end of the month, when I'm not half-blind and drugged up. And we can't wait to see what happens for our third anniversary...
