Today, 3-14, is affectionately known among math teachers such as myself, as Pi day.  Not pie.

Pi.

As in 3.14

So anyway, it’s traditional for math teachers to eat “pie” on “Pi” day.  This year, Pi day occurred during Spring Break, so we don’t have any students to share any pie with.

Ceecee and I aren’t huge fans of pie, but we do love pizza.  And… it just so happens that pizzas are traditionally referred to as “pies,” at least within the trade.

That was all the excuse Ceecee and I needed to spend some time at Old Chicago “celebrating.”  wink, wink.

We also needed an excuse to get away from packing.  Yes, packing.  As in, we talked to the landlords of the new loft and asked if we could pay a prorated part of the current month and move in early over Spring break!

So…..it’s Spring Break and we are extremely excited about our new loft!  Packing still sucks, though, but the pizza was great!

We haven’t done one of Old Chicago’s mini-tours on the World Beer Tour since the Halloween mini-tour last year, but tonight we’re going out to start the St. Patrick’s Day mini-tour.  They have a lot of Irish beers that sound good, and they’re having a kickoff party with free corned beef and cabbage tonight, so you can’t beat that.

To make it a full date night, we’re going to the movies first to see Gnomeo and Juliet.  It seems silly and it might be stupid, but it looks funny.  My wife loves kids stuff and she’s really just a kid at heart.  

Since we’ve been back together, that has really been something I’ve grown to love and appreciate about her.  She can be silly and have fun, and she still has that childlike wonder about her.  She’s very much a woman, don’t get me wrong.  I love that about her, as well.  It’s just that the fun and the laughter have returned to our relationship and it’s like we have the best of everything right now.  We have the fun and excitement of dating, along with the love and security of marriage.  

If I could bottle this and sell it, I’d be a very rich man, indeed.
