Ten minus one is NINE

Our nine year wedding anniversary was Wednesday. Nine years!

It just so happened that Weezer was playing that night at Bluesfest, a huge outdoor festival. It was a regular Wednesday until after dinner when J's parents came over. We got Little K to bed and left Little J with them.

I felt free as a bird: no diaper bag, no clinging children, no wallet even. I felt free but a bit naked too. A bit exposed. I was worried it was going to be a young crowd and I'd feel old and out of place and ... dumpy. Young girls always make me feel dumpy.

I was relieved to see people of all ages wearing all sorts of things. We blended in just fine.

And the concert? It was amazing! Weezer is one of those bands that I've loved forever. J and I went to Montreal to see them back in 2003 or so and I realize now that it was 10 years ago and I feel old, but still. It was really great to see a band where I could sing along to all the songs (all but one if I'm being honest).

It was nice to be out with J and out in the fresh air and out with the thousands of other people.

I felt energized the rest of the night. Thursday I was dragging, but it was totally worth it.

Those nine years? Best of my life.

The only picture I took of us Wednesday and I look goofy. Erg.

This anniversary was pretty awesome but I think next year we'll go back to our old tradition and have a party. I miss that.
