First up... is Blogger being weird to anyone else? My last post is gone.... although it's on my reader but the link says it's been removed. For a couple hours this morning I couldn't log on either. The page said Blogger was temporarily unavailable. Hmmm. Technical difficulties, I imagine, but not sure why that took away a post from Wednesday afternoon.
So, why is Friday the 13th lucky? Because today is my wedding anniversary. 22 years. Not quite half my life, but we did meet when I was 22. This picture was taken a week before we got engaged. My husband was a groomsman in his cousin's wedding. I was dressed in the typical yuppy working women's style of the day.
Of course, we were going to the show anyway but it was a cute idea. On Mother's Day, which I had to share with my husband's birthday, I was joking about my anniversary night being spent at the school because we're providing the cast with dinner then going to the show. Dinner and a show.... only I have to fix the dinner and share it with 17 high school students. It's all in how you look at it.
It reminds me of the year we celebrated our 8th anniversary. My neighbor, whose 3 kids were grown, stopped over. I was in the midst of the typical predinner chaos of a house with 3 kids. Buttercup was a baby, we'd just started a huge renovation project, and I was trying to get supper. She commented on this being no way to spend our anniversary. I remember saying that if 8 years ago, on that very day, someone told me that this is what I'd be doing 8 years from that day I'd have thought I'd died and gone to heaven. So, again, it's all how you look at it.
