Happy Anniversary, Hubby!

EDIT: Like all of you, I am mildly annoyed by women who gush and mush about their fabulous, sexy, romantic husbands. You’ll have to pardon me just this once.

I came home from Cubbies tonight quite tired and not looking forward to getting 3 girls snacked, dressed in pjs, teeth brushed, prayed with, sung to, rocked and put in bed. Walked right by the kitchen table, did not even notice the bouquet of a dozen roses and an anniversary card (until 5 minutes later). Then didn’t notice the new screen saver on my computer which was a blown-up picture of one of my roses, with a poem and picture of my hubby.

I had no clue. Not an inkling. Was in no way expecting anything for our anniversary upon my return tonight. I was touched. Still am. Gabe has never been much of a sappy romantic. When he does do things for me, they are extra super special, because I know the effort and unselfishness involved. My hubby loves me. He loves me. Wow–that’s really cool.

The girls are in bed. Gabe is picking up a pizza and a movie. Happy Anniversary to me!!

I promise not to write anything else like this for awhile. 🙂

Today is our 9th anniversary. I think I’ll wait until the day we actually get to celebrate to write about our big day. I’ll see Gabe for about 30 minutes when he gets off work and then it’s off to Cubbies until 8:30. I’m exhausted from a trip with the girls to visit my grandma this morning, a trip to the grocery, and some writing during naptime. January 3rd was a bad day to get married. Every year we’re tired. 🙂

I love you, Gabe! These were the best nine years of my life! 🙂

    The books came today!  Thanks.  Can’t wait to read it and can’t wait to give the one to my daughter-in-law.  There was a picture in my book of your darling daughters in halloween gear!  Was that meant for me?  They are just too cute!!

    Happy Anniversary!  And I love to hear stories like yours – you were sweet about how you told it, so it wasn’t obnoxious at all…just made me smile.  Hope you have just as wonderful a time when you celebrate for real!

    Thank you for clarifying why you were reading my blog instead of celebrating with “Chirpy.” 😉

    Have I told you how much I appreciate you? You encourage me and uplift me when I need it most. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

    I don’t have a problem with romantics at all…

    I wish I had some of that to report. Kevin was right. It was all over when we hit the year mark. I’d hate to see what two years brings…

    I love hearing romantic stories…….but one thing……didn’t you just write a book on sex and worried about talking too much on romance? LOL…….Happy anniversary, again!

    Gushiness excused. Roses justify gushing any day! Happy anniversary!

    And on a different note. We have started a new routine for Wednesday nights in our house during the last 6 months. We now eat an early supper and do baths BEFORE church. The kids actually go to church in their PJs… people don’t even question it anymore. Of course, we are a much smaller church, and our mid-week programs are pretty laid back. So I am not suggesting you try this in your situation (people would probably think you’re nuts). It does eliminate that rush when you get home, though!

    lol, Kristen. We have no idea when we’re celebrating. Whenever we can line up a babysitter. It probably won’t be Saturday. Hey, you can come and babysit our girls for us! 🙂 (I’m kidding.)

    Happy Anniversary!!!!!!! What day are you actually celebrating? If it is Saturday, then my decision is made and I can stop this nonsensical back and forth in my mind 🙂
