Today is our anniversary. Vince and I aren’t going out these days because Covid in our area is crazy. I told him I’d be happy if we pizza delivered from Little Caesar’s tomorrow. I love their pizza and he doesn’t like it so it’s a sacrifice for him to get it from there. Homemade is so much better but when Vince gets pizza out, he always gets two and we have leftovers for days. And, sometimes it’s just nice not to cook. We would have done it today but we had leftovers to eat, and I wanted to make something for the neighbor’s birthday so I sent them the eggplant.
I was thinking, and I know all of us who have been married for a while can look back and tons of memories flash before our eyes. When I think about Chad and his teen years . . I don’t even know why Vince stayed. Heck, the washing machine we had back then wasn’t even hard to operate. 🙂
At the times they were happening, the moves were sometimes frustrating and stressful but, looking back, they were so fun.
Vince has always gone along with my crazy ideas, though sometimes there were great and loud discussions:
- He’s a cute kitty. Can we keep him?
- Do we really have 100 chickens?
- I want a big garden .. how about 100 x 100?
- A little house in town would be so convenient!
- I think I want a longarm.
Poor Vince. It’s probably a good thing I like to cook because I don’t have a lot of redeeming qualities . . oh, and I know how to work the washing machine! 🙂
Things haven’t always been easy. It hasn’t always been a cakewalk. I’m glad we worked through problems, worked through our differences. I’m sure, even in these “Golden Years”, we’ll butt heads now and then but that makes us stronger, right?
We have a good life together and I can’t imagine life without Vince.
