Monday, Our 43 anniversary!


 Hubs and I are celebrating 43 years today.  Well, we discussed last night what we could do to celebrate.  Then as per usual life happened. Or the weather did not co-operate.

We have had a ton of snow on the prairie.  Washington is very strict about studs being removed by April 1st.  Here we are having snowstorms in April.  Nate is working 13-hour days with accidents all over the prairie and then with only 4 hours sleep was called out again for a bad semi rollover.

Schmills went to spend the last few days of his spring break with his beloved Aunt BB and then ended up with a stomach bug, so they did not drive him down yesterday.  No one wants that in the car.  Daughter has to work a 12-hour day and then drive 4 hours on the snowy roads to get Schmills. Nathan has to sleep sometime.  So, Grandpa to the rescue.  Daughter and Kelsa came down last night and stayed the night. Keeping daughter from driving down early this morning.  Hubs was up opening the church for seminary at 6, and then home for a minute to get started on going up to get the Schmills.

While he was eating some breakfast, the civic theater called and wants him in the pit for the 5-week run of Cinderella.  Then the school called and can he be there at 5 tonight for a play for the Jr. High.  There go any Anniversary plans.  We had thought about a late dinner as daughter would pick the kids up a little after 6.  After Hubs left, I received a phone call from Interlink, because they could not get a hold of hubs.  Driving on the prairie we lose cell service.  They had several hand and towel bars that need to be put up for the elderly.  (Hold it do they know that we are the elderly?) Also, they need him to vet more volunteers.  I am leaning on the vetting as the man only has so many hours. If he can get more people to do what he does, maybe he won't have to do,do,do.

So, I am hoping that he will be home from the school this evening early enough that we can run to Home Depot and pick out a new toilet for the master bath! Yeah, what an anniversary gift!  A new handicap toilet, in bisque beige.  I can strap that on my wrist and wear it like a bangle. SO romantic.

I wanted to make sour cream cut out cookies today and just realized I am out of sour cream.  Dang.

On Native American skirt #7. I know, I know, not as much done as I wanted this weekend.  But hey I don't even feel stressed about it. I thought I had 10 pieces of material and it turns out I only have 9 so I have to run get another and some sour cream when hubs get home. In the meantime, I am going to spend this anniversary with grandkids or alone perusing toilets on the Home depot website.

The fun never end at Kim's house.

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

  4. Happy anniversary and many more. Don't worry about the nice dinner out or fancy celebrations - they truly don't matter. Just cuddle close tonight and give him a kiss and a good night. Having them there is so what is important. Trust me, that is what is important!

  6. Happy anniversary! I'd agree you both need to get others vetted. Two people tasked like 20. A new bathroom toilet and all the other new bathroom stuff would leave me giddy!

  8. Happy Anniversary!
    A toilet sounds like some of my anniversary presents, but at least it is something that you can use. Hope you don't have to try it out by catching that stomach bug though. Stay well and wishing you many more years of happiness together.
