In Sickness and in Health..... and One Dog for Sale
Because our big Florida trip is next week, we hadn't really planned much for our anniversary. At least I thought we hadn't. I didn't know it, but Ryan had planned a very full evening of couple's massages, wine tasting, and sushi. But, Murphy seems to be living in our house lately.
Ryan woke up this morning with a raging case of strep throat. Ryan doesn't get sick very often, but the boy is SICK. He hasn't left the bedroom all day. And not in a good way.
But I really do think that a marriage is defined by the hard moments. So instead of being disappointed, I've gotten a lot of time to think today about how really lucky I am. And I've gotten a chance to baby my man, which is important too.
In other news.... Does anyone want a dog? For free? Heck, I'll PAY you. I'm too pissed to take a picture of what happened today to the carpet in my brand new house, so I'll just refer you back to the Pink Carpet Disaster of 2005. That's right kids, that evil piece of shit dog ripped up ANOTHER carpet. IN THE NEW HOUSE! I just can't verbalize my anger over the whole thing. So I won't. I'll just resurrect this picture of Mika. Come on. You know you want her.
I'm Amanda. I'm an engineer in an industry full of men, a professional wedding and family portrait photographer, a firefighter's wife, a traveler, and a dogMa.
