10 Years Ago: A Love Post

I married the love of my life 10 years ago today. 

I love him.  I can't imagine my life without him.  He endures my downs, and he celebrates my ups.  We get frustrated with each other, but we never, ever doubt our love for each other.  He is patient with me (when I cry at everything from It's a Wonderful Life to the Walking Dead), indulges me ("Sure.  You want a molten lave cake?  Have one!"), and takes grand adventures with me (from Paris to Vegas, NYC to DC, St. Louis to Chicago).  He spoils me with shinys, toys, and gadgets.  But above all, he loves me for who I am. 

Oh, yeah, and he's helped me make the best two babies in the world.  They complete us.  With them, we have everything and want for nothing.  (Except for maybe more hugs.)

I just hope somewhere in his heart and mind, he knows how much I love him, too...even though I won't play epic, mind-numbing board games with him.

Oh, Yeah...

THIS happened, too.

Just another historical Thursday in November...and I was too sick to blog about it.  Stupid MEGA COLD.*

*Yes, MEGA COLD will always be in caps when I refer to it.  Which I might do often in the next few days, or even weeks, cause if you hate something so much for five weeks, you don't forget about it easily.


Wow.  Um...yeah.  So...uh...ah...

I haven't posted since September 24?  Why didn't anyone tell me!?! 

So, here's the haps:

  • Went to Paris and Reading for an early 10th anniversary trip...been blogging about that mostly...until...
  • I got hit with the MEGA COLD of the century.  (At least I hope it's of the century, cause if not, I don't know if I can get through another one without seriously injuring someone.)  Had laryngitis for a week, couldn't sing at church, got over that...have had a cold for FOUR weeks.  Major fatigue, tons of sneezing, horrible cough, and oh, yeah...tons of fatigue.  It tried to get me down, but I FINALLY saw a doctor and got something glorious called a Z-Pack AND an inhaler for that cough.
  • I fought the cold to see this guy:

  • And these guys:

        All within three days of each other.  It was awesome.  
  • TURNED 33!!!  It's my Scottie Pippen year, y'all!  

       Hubby got me an overnight stay AT A SPA!  Paid for my bestie to go, too.  Swedish massage,            pedicure, facial, AND a manicure.  Stayed overnight in a villa with a private hot tub, whirlpool bath, double headed shower, AND a flatscreen in each room.  He KNOWS how to spoil a girl.  After all my sickness, though, it has relaxed me a lot, and I feel better for it. 
  • Our Bubby's about to turn TWO!  It's his Golden Birthday, and he won't even remember.  Anybody got a gold lame suit he can borrow?  No, I'm for REALZ.  Anyone???  It's cool.  I'll just go snag this one.

          It's not like I don't know where it is.
  • Oh, and it's the MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE  YEAR!  I have no decs up.  :(  I guess I'll trade that, though, since I got to go to a spa.  :)  

I know you missed me, oh 5 Faithful Readers.  I'll try to keep up more.
