On Tuesday, Adam and I celebrated our 8th anniversary. In some ways, it seems we’ve always been together, but at other times, I can hardly believe that it’s been 8 years. We were both able to take Monday & Tuesday off to spend some time together. Adam and I may have a tendency to argue but I truly do love him and he has taught me to be a better person. I am thankful he’s my husband.
We had planned to go hiking in Balanced Rock State Park, about 2 hours away. But the sky was dark and the forecast called for rain. So instead, we drove to the Old Idaho Penitentiary to pick up some hiking trails from the parking lot. When we got there, we found out that it was open for touring so we went in and paid. We walked around examining all the buildings we were allowed in. By the time we were finished, it was 3 hours later. I’ll discuss the prison more in another post. It was very interesting and an eye opener for me. Adam and I both enjoyed ourselves. Afterward, we went for a short hike. We had to turn around when the rain started spitting on us.
We went back home to give the dogs a break and eat dinner. Then, we went and saw a movie, Seven Pounds. It was a strange and depressing movie.
On Tuesday, we had lunch out, went shopping for Adam’s Christmas/birthday/anniversary present. He’s been waiting since Christmas for a winch for his Yukon. We spent about 1 ½ hours at Harbor Freight Tools browsing the shelves. Then, we went to REI for about 30 minutes before I gave up trying on new biking shoes.
I went to Jasmine’s last class. I finished up the first half of my classes. From here on out, I’ll be doing some of the teaching in the classes. I’m pretty nervous. After I got back, we went to Cheesecake Factory for dinner & dessert.
It was nice to be able to spend some time with him since we generally don’t have the same days off.
