Thai/Johnson Wedding Anniversary

It's hard to believe that Eric and I have only been married for two years. On August 19, 2006, we barely knew anyone in Minneapolis. Now we barely know anyone in Sydney! It feels a bit like all of the changes we've gone through together in the past two years were just training for what's coming up over the next year. At least I know I'm on a winning team. And if past performance really is the best predictor of future performance, we should be set -- we made so many great friends and had such a wonderful time living in Minneapolis (despite occassional rumblings about the cold).

We do have a sailing interview with a couple this weekend to crew on their boat for the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron Spring and Summer Series. Check out the RSYS on the web -- they're directly across from the Opera House. Tough view. That would keep our Saturdays busy from September until forever, and one of the really nice guys from work will likely also be crewing for them. Keep your fingers crossed that we don't blow it! We told them we're unskilled at anything but taking orders, so hopefully their expectations aren't too high.

Last night, Eric and I went to a nice Thai place up the street for our anniversary dinner. Most of the restaurants here are BYO, so we grabbed one of the bottles of wine from the kitchen cabinet. Turns out it was dessert wine -- the cap said "serve chilled." I can only hope the waiter didn't read English and/or didn't know anything about wine. All wine bottles here have twist off caps, so at least I didn't have to feel embarassed about that...
