What were you doing 24 years ago today? Can you remember 24 years ago? Let me help refresh your memory, it was a Saturday, and in our part of the world it was a beautiful sunny day. We were all much younger, I was just a mere 19 years old! Well if you haven’t’ figured it out yet, 24 years ago today I got married. I am sure there were many at that wedding that thought it wouldn’t last. But so far we have proved them wrong! My most vivid memory of that day was my Grandfather walking me down the isle and the whole time whispering to me “you know you don’t have to do this, you can change your mind, its not to late to turn around”. I can laugh at that now but at the time I remember being totally freaked out. Thinking does he know something I don’t? My Grandfather was such a brave man that day, he did all that he needed to do, was where he needed to be and held up amazingly well considering my grandmother had died only a week earlier.
Married for 24 years, that seems like it is sooooo old. My ‘at the park’ friends laugh and talk about next year when ‘the husband’ and I celebrate our 25, silver anniversary. Sunshine says she will start scouring second hand shops looking for a 25 anniversary platter. No Thank You, but some new towels would be nice.
Some of asked what we plan to do to mark this year’s milestone.
So here are the big plans I will get up get the kids ready for school, he will drive the little one, then he will come home and watch Regis and Kelly like he does everyday. We might go out for lunch, depending on if we have a coupon or not. (we did go out for lunch and yes we used a coupon) I will then get some platters of food ready to take to the school for a meeting where the department heads will discuss many things including my proposal for food service. I want to have food there to help bribe them! When the kids get home from school ‘the teenager’ will go to work for a couple of hours and I will try not to fight with the little one over homework. Hopefully by eight o’clock I can start to get ‘the little one’ to bed, and then ‘the teenager’ will be home and we will discuss her music exam which she had today and work on a project she is doing for the staff at her work. Sound romantic enough for you all?
