Happy Anniversary

A wedding anniversary is the celebration of love, trust, partnership, tolerance and tenacity. The order varies for any given year. ~Paul Sweeney

Today my DH and I celebrate 13 years of marriage. I use the term "celebrate" loosely, because it will probably entail a greeting of "Happy Anniversary" when I wake him up and not much else, lol.

We were going to take a weekend away this year, but the logistics got too crazy. Finding someone to watch the DD and the Dd is tough. My in-laws and the one friend I'd trust to keep DD all don't like dogs. And boarding the dog costs more than my frugal self can stand. We can't go out to dinner -- DH's long hours at work preclude that. So, we'll just wish one another a happy anniversary and go from there. One of these days we'll get away. Heck DD turns 18 in eight more years. Maybe DH and I will go away then!



It's hot here. Sometimes I think that the earth's tilt has changed a little bit because it sure seems like our seasons have shifted by a few weeks. The past few years everything seems to come just a little later. The weather we're having now is typical for late July, and I bet we have a longer fall. Last year we didn't even get our first frost until October!

Regardless, it's going to be brutal the next couple of days. It's hot (high 90s) and it's VERY VERY humid (which is what gets me). We don't have A/C because we really seldom need it. But OY.

It makes it especially tough for the dog because she's got so much energy, and we just can't take her for walks or play with her between late morning and early evening. Poor puppy.

DD is angry because I won't let her bake cookies.



You Are Right Brained in Love

When it comes to love, you go with your gut not with your head.

You have an open heart. You fall in love easily and get hurt just as easily.

You are spontaneous with relationships. You go with the flow and don't worry about the future.

You are romantic, empathetic, and caring. More than most people, you really love being in love.

Um.. No.

Happy Anniversary!!

You Are Left Brained in Love

When it comes to love, you try to be as rational as possible. Your head doesn't lead you astray.

You believe that love should never be blind, and you're not the type to get swept away easily.

You are a cool customer when you fall for someone. You are able to look at things directly.

You believe the honesty is key to a good relationship. You also try to be dependable and trustworthy.
This is more or less accurate.

I hope you have a great Monday!

A very Happy Anniversary to you both. Wish I was there.

A few minutes ago, after reading your blog, I was getting ready to respond but your Monday blog suddenly vanished. I could only get your Sunday input. AFter waiting for a while,I tried again and there it was, back again. I think I am jinxed today.

Happy anniversary!!!

I don't know about the earth's tilting but it sure seems like the hot/cold spots on the planet are shifting.

Happy Anniversary! I hope you and your hubs get at least a few minutes alone together. Our Summer weather has been weird this year, too.
I am Left Brained in Love (same as Dru). Not sure about the results.

I hope you have a great day!

Happy Anniversary, Marianne! Your anniversaries sound like ours - and we don't even have a Dd to worry about.

Happy Anniversary, Marianne! You need to find some time to at least get out and splurge for dinner at your favorite restaurant.

Humid here too, but I can bake goodies in my convection oven and not heat up the kitchen.
