If it's not too personal for you I would like to share a text that I received from my husband on Wednesday 4-21-10 at 3:37pm (Eastern time).

It reads as follows:
I'm thinking about 4/24/92
What a great day in my life!!!
Thanks for marrying me.

Your true love,

I texted back that I loved him and asked:

"When will you be coming home to me?"

His reply was:

"Soon my sweet pea, soon"

And then a romantic:

"I saw that practice was cancelled tonight."

Not romantic you say? Well with two extra hours of time who knows what we could do with that? We could actually sit down and eat together-real food not cereal! And then who knows?

Coincidentally I had been having similar amorous thoughts that day. We must have been on the same wave-length. Being married to someone for 17yrs, 362 days will do that to a couple I guess. There has been talk of what we would do to celebrate our 18 yrs of life together this weekend. T took the day off on Monday, so there is a 3 day weekend right there. But looking seriously at our calendar there are at least 11 things listed from Friday to Sunday. So there's no getting away from the beast that is our hectic family life. But thinking about it more seriously there is no other way I would like to spend my time than living the life we have carved out together thus far. Nothing other than trying to keep up with the hussle and bussle- together as a couple. I can't imagine going this alone.

During the brief moments we see each other in passing these days we have both confessed that time has not allowed us the opportunity to shop for gifts for one another. Our checkbook balance has also not been overly high. (Darn those greedy music teachers!) So there is that obstacle as well. It is Little Boy's birthday on our anniversary. Yes, that is true. So we have shared this day for the last 10 years. He will be 11 and he's getting in line skates and a big water gun! Maybe T and I can incorporate those things into our anniversary plans. Sounds fun yes?

Hey, happy anniversary! And I must say, your husband sounds like a romantic stud.

Why is it that the music teachers are always asking for more money?

This seems like a good place. I am going to start following.
