Almost There

Today, we've been married for 14 years! We'll celebrate by working on the house this afternoon, followed by baths all aound, and some random dinner-substance, after which we'll fill two futons watching The Apple-Dumpling Gang! Do we know how to celebrate or what!?!

I'm not exactly sure how I ended up married for fourteen years, with four children. It amazes me. FOUR children. FOUR! I mentioned that to my husband and he casually and literally and semi-sarcastically told me "want me to explain it to you? Cause I thought you knew how babies were made"

Not to mention, he ordered a surprise for me so I can't check the mail. Its making me completely nuts! So last night, he told me, "Ok, You can get the mail tomorrow". Oh! The Joy! The Thrill! The LACK OF POSTAL SERVICE ON A HOLIDAY!

And then, a little later, I mentioned how thrilled I would be for my big anniversary -- the 23rd one, because at that point I will have been married longer than not! And how fabulous that would be, and how I looked forward to it, and asked him what year his would be. Maybe our 24th? To which he looks up from the mail and replies "Depends on if your count my lifetime from birth or from conception." Casually and literally and semi-saracastically. Again. Oooo, I am SO outraged at his audacity! Ok, well, more likely "Oooooo, I am SO enthralled with his cleverness!"

And, thats his gift for today! That I love him wildly and give him all those delightful set-ups for his cassually literal semi-saracasm. Like I told his mother when she said "He's such a male-chauvinist! I don't know where he gets it!" to which I replied "But isn't he the cutest thing?!?" while looking at him adoringly. She rolled her eyes and was almost sick at the dinner table. (FYI, he's not a male-chauvinist, he just enjoys jerking her chain and I enjoy setting up his moment)

Here's to a lifetime of raising your sons to be just like you!


I love that last line. Wow. 14 years. That is more than half my life! It still amazes me that two people live together for so long and not get tired of one another. I really think that is amazing. I get tired of living with my cat sometimes. LOL

Happy Anniversary!! We're coming up on 15 years, and it's hard to believe it's been that long already! Time flies when you're having fun.

Happy Anniversary! We only just celebrated 8 and already have 4 children. I'm praying we don't get anymore. ;) But then again, you never know what the Lord has in store for you. So, how old are your children anyway? Mine are 1, 3, 5, and 7.
