I'm Going Back to NOLA...
At the end of this month, Baret and I will hit the four year mark. It's a marker for both of us in that neither of us has ever been in a relationship this long. Baret's never made it past two years, and my first live-in love and I made it three years and a handful of months. To mark the occasion of putting up with each other for four whole years, we decided we'd do something we've never done before - celebrate our anniversary.
No, really, we've never celebrated it. There were always things going on; when we hit the one year mark I was recovering from my first knee surgery and it passed nearly unnoticed. After that, it was never a big deal.
But this year we decided to commemorate our first date - the one that sealed the deal. It was a Counting Crows concert at The House of Blues in New Orleans.
Have I ever mentioned how much I love New Orleans? Well, I haven't been much since my leg got fucked up; and even then I was in a wheelchair. Since I'm more mobile these days (though not fixed by any means) we decided we'd get a room and party in the French Quarter like we used to do.
I'm very excited. Our hotel is only a few blocks off of the French Quarter - we check in this evening and check out tomorrow, but that's really all the time we need to get drunk on Bourbon Street.
I promise pictures when we return! And next week I also promise to come back full-force with some unusual things that have occurred that I just haven't had time to blog about before.
With that, I'm headed to the Big Easy to gulp down my first Hurricane of the day...
