October 18th 2011 marks mine and Mark’s 3 year anniversary of non-married bliss. We have been “debating” over whether or not we will continue to celebrate this date once we get married. I say YES, because that means there’s one more opportunity for Mark to buy me a present. Mark says NO because he sucks. I am trying to space out all gift-giving occasions throughout the year, and failing to acknowledge our October-versarry creates a big, stupid, giftless, almost 5 month hole…
So, given that this might be the last time we celebrate the true beginning of our relationship, we should probably go out for a fancy dinner and a romantic walk on the beach or something like that...
How do Mark and I actually plan on celebrating our anniversary? The same way we’ll probably spend it for the remainder of our lives…. I’m in hospital all day, then I have a meeting at night, and then I will get home and be too exhausted to exist.
I told Mark that I felt bad that I didn’t have more free time on our anniversary, and he graciously said that he knew what he was signing up for when I started medical school. So, the current plan consists of loading up on tasty snacks and watching back-to-back-to-back episodes of Battlestar Galactica.
|Hey look! There's a couple in there being all cozy! Just pretend that's me and Mark.|
Definitely not the most elaborate of anniversaries, but it actually sounds kind of perfect.
