Today is my anniversary. Or rather, my anniversary with Mister. We have been married for twenty years. That is a really long time. Although I look fifteen I was actually 21. At the time I felt rather grown up but as I look back I realize what an absolute child I was and what business did I have getting married? But I can honestly say that it was a good choice for me. I mean, we made it twenty years! As I tell my husband, “if I were going to leave you it would have been a long time ago.” There have been some pretty rocky times along the way, but getting through them has made us even stronger.
Mister really hates being mentioned on my blog but he is a stellar guy who is the kindest, most thoughtful person I’ve ever met. There has never been a single second since we fell in love that I haven’t known that he loves me completely and is utterly devoted to me and our family. If you think about it, that’s pretty amazing. He’s also totally hilarious but is very shy about letting people see that side of him. So everyone thinks he’s very stodgy. His oddball self remains unknown. Too bad for all of you!
So happy 20th to my dearest and most beloved friend. We’re celebrating by installing a new disposal. (Actually my mom watched the kids while we went downtown for a couple of days and ate at all the restaurants we’ve had our eye on.) But we came home to a busted disposal so that’s going to be our fun gift to each other. What can I say? Money is tight this year.
