14 years

14 year, yup married to Mike 14 years today.  Some days it feels like yesterday and some days, it feels like 25 years :).  Good times, hard time, happiness, sorrows-all shared, all survived.  Life is what you make it and for me, it's all good. 

Happy Anniversary and yes, I remembered (okay, now here is where I get bashed-I "forgot" Mike's birthday last year.  I knew when it was mind you, I don't write this stuff down.  I just happen to not realize it was the 6th until the 7th when I looked on the calendar.  To make matters worse, his admin assistant should have called and told me IMHO, since he mentioned to her he thought I forgot.  She didn't.  I shouldn't have told anyone I forgot, but in my "I feel like crap for it" mode, I did and "they" all made a big deal about it, which made it worse).  Remember, a lot of significant things for us are on the 21st or 23rd of different months and I admit, I pulled out my wedding invite a few weeks ago to check the correct date and then marked it on the calendar because, as I am told by all who heard the "YOU MISSED MIKE'S BIRTHDAY?" fiasco, how horrible I was, I have written on the calendar our anniversary and it is 14 years cause I did the math, 'kay.  June 23rd, 1996.

Perhaps I am not great at the date thing, but maybe it's because everyday is a celebration of your life, so birthdays, anniversaries, they're just a date on the calendar.  Have fun everyday, love everyday and appreciate what you have everyday and the dates won't matter.

You forgot a birthday? Puh-leeze... One year, at like 9pm, my mother called here and we chatted for a bit. At the end of the conversation she casually threw out "Oh and happy anniversary!" I gasped, looked in shock at my husband and shouted "OMG Happy Anniversary!" to which he gasped and looked back horrified and said "Happy Anniversary!" And that was AFTER we'd gotten married two different times on that same date...

Happy Anniversary! May the next 46 years be as special as today (46 years means you will make it to 50 year anniversary of which my own parents are celebrating on Friday!

If it makes you feel better, one year my dad forgot what month my birthday was! (He apologized in mid January for not sending my card on time... my birthday is in February!)
