Can you imagine 9 years with me?!

July 25, 2007

It’s amazing to me that anyone (besides my folks) would want to spend every day, for 9 years with me.  And J’s still here!  And keeps talking about more years too!!!!  Yea me!!!!

About 15 years ago, he and I met and immediately got along about as good as a cat with a dog.  He acted like a pompous, pious snob stuck in a bible-bubble.  He thought I was a sinful wild woman who needed to find Jesus.  For the next 4 years I tried to stay as far away from him as possible.  Which was really hard since my house-mates were his close friends.  If he walked in the room…I walked out.  I eventually moved out and was able to avoid him for almost a solid year.

Out of the blue, we hung out one evening for a friends birthday.  I had slowed down quite a bit over the years and he seemed to have grasped reality better.  We went bowling later that evening and with a butt like his I just couldn’t stay away from him!  It led to a year of dating and a wedding on July 25, 1998.


J has been such a caring husband.  The part I probably love the most is the times when he makes me laugh like an idiot.  He’s always coming up with new ideas for fun, love and laughter.  What more can I ask for….


J has also been a wonderful father.  He saw what his traveling was doing to his sons and made sacrifices to be closer.  OldMan knows this and cherishes his Dad for it.

Honey, thank you for tying me down and putting a ring on my finger.  I don’t regret it one bit.  I think I’ll call your ‘more years’ and raise you ‘forever’.
