Here’s an ode. To your wife.
So…the boys made it back from the never-ending bachelor party in Tahoe. I made it through the first three days and on Saturday morning I realized that there were still two more days to go.
I knew Annett was just an hour and a half away, but she had mentioned that she had a lot of stuff to do and was going to be productive. But, on Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m. I called her anyway.
Me: “Um. Hi. Would it be OK if I came down there to have some company?”
Me: “Well, yeah. I mean, I know you’re supposed to be cleaning and doing stuff, but I can play with the cats.”
So I went down there and we kept each other company. We immediately went to the store for essential girl weekend stuff:
We also got stuff to make a fabulous dinner: Fresh halibut, artichokes and baby reds.
Annett picked out a delicious bottle of white wine to go with dinner. Red wine for trashy magazines and white wine for nice dinner. Makes sense to me!
Not only does Annett have the Sex In The City pink box set, they have also just purchased a 900 square inch TV so we watched until we both fell asleep on the couch.
If the boys would have seen us they would have been so proud. We were not getting ourselves in trouble or doing shots. We were asleep on the couch before midnight.
Thanks Annett for making the last hours before the boys came home one of the best weekends ever! That’s what bridesmaids are for, right?!
When I asked Laef if he was going to go down to hang out with Ben when we go to the Bachelorette Party in two weeks, he said: “I don’t know. But, guys can be perfectly happy alone for four days.”
