Josh The Pilot and I are now closing in on our second wedding annivesary, and we are marking the day with a very, very special joint dentist appointment.

I would like to find an excuse to change the dentist appointment.  Cash, however, is limited, which means options are limited.  Then again, some options are better left untaken:  In my filing cabinet is a brochure for a romantic paddle down the Potomac in a kayak. The kayak is a two-seater, or as I prefer to call it, "The Divorce Express."

I totally understand how you feel. The only time quality time I spend with my husband anymore is when we team-change my son's horrendously poopy diaper and clothes.

The very first Blonde Champagne moment I ever read was the account of your first date with JTP. I remember it like it was yesterday, the discovery that "the envelope" was actually a bunch of uninteresting numbers, that airplanes have keys and of course... divulging your weight on the first date. My how far we've come!

Awwww, thanks for sticking around that long! Maybe you and I should take the kayak trip.

Congratulations on the second wedding anniversary!

I laughed out loud at the kayak comment. My husband and I had the bright idea of kayaking in a two-seater a few years ago. Let's just say that it ranked right up there with Painting the Bedroom and Shopping for a Car in terms of marital strain.
