Thirteen years ago today Hubby and I were married. At the risk of being gaggingly (Yes...that's a word....a Mama Smurf created word) cliche..."time sure does fly by when you're having fun."
I debated for quite awhile this morning on whether or not to remind him. I thought maybe I could milk this for all it's worth (in most women's eyes anyway). I could play the "I can't believe you forgot our wedding anniversary" card and maybe walk away with a guilt diamond.
But I didn't....play the guilt card that is. Because that would require me going out and getting him a guilt present. And I just don't have time today.
This post makes it sound like we're pathetic.
We are still hopelessly in love.
But we don't celebrate our anniversary the way most couples do. It's pretty much just another day around here.
We are leaving in four days for our annual Higgin's Lake trip with three other couples and a total of twelve kids. So I've been busy trying to prepare for that. Grocery shopping, cleaning out van, making doggy daycare arrangements and such. We will be on vacation from Sat. to Sat. without internet. I probably won't get a chance to post again until after Labor day weekend.
Here's a recap of last year's trip. Ten adults. Twelve children. Rained 6 out of 7 days. Never got hotter than 70 degrees. Boat broke down twice. The ONE day that the sun came out and we were able to take the boat out....the power steering went out on the boat and it had to be towed in. Sleeping arrangements for Papa Smurf and I: 3 out of the 4 sides of our mattress were touching walls (no I'm not exaggerating).....and there was one foot of clearance on the fourth side....just enough to open the door a bit and SQUEEEEEEEEZE our body's in. It was a LOOOONNNNNNNG week.
I refuse to look at the forecast any more because as of yesterday morning they were already predicting rain for the first 3 days of this year's trip.
Pray for us.
