Twenty-six Years!

(This post is for Saturday, September 12, 2009. I was lazy and did it on Friday night, because I have company coming on Saturday and might not have time to write something then. So ignore the date above; pretend it says Saturday, etc.)

I woke up yesterday morning, looked over at the smiling face on the pillow next to mine, and this is how the conversation went:

Me: “Happy Anniversary.”


Hubs: “Today’s not the 10th.”


Me: “Yes, it is!”


Hubs: “Nope, today’s the 11th.”


Me: “Oh, crap! You’re right. I forgot our anniversary!”

Hubs: “I did, too! At least we went out to dinner last night.”

Me: “We sort of celebrated, even though we didn’t know we were celebrating.”

Hubs: “This getting old is a bitch, isn’t it?”


Then we both burst out laughing. Hey, it’s the first time in 26 years we BOTH forgot our anniversary! And like he said, we did go out to dinner that night; maybe on a subconscious level we knew?

In any case, it’s been a great 26 years, and I love him more than ever—and I suspect he’s moderately fond of me, as well.

Happy Anniversary! It sounds like you don't need to remember to have a good laugh, a good time and enjoy each other's company. My hubby and I don't place too much emphasis on dates and holidays. We try to be good to each other every day. Cheers to 26 years and many more!

So cute! It's so inspiring to see couples still together after all that time. I hope that someday I'll be (half of) one of them! Thanks for visiting my blog =)

Kari said...

That is funny! We actually both forgot our anniversary this year, too (18 years).

Congratulations to you! Happy Saturday Sharefest from SITS!

Kirsten said...

WOW 26 years. CONGRATS!! It's funny how you BOTH forgot. The things age will do to you.

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest

Kristine said...

This is the 25th for us so we already have something scheduled. Sure hope we don't forget to go! But in years past we have forgotten. Maybe because it is not in June but wedged between t-day and xmas - when so much other stuff is going on.
Thx for the laugh.

Hi. Thanks for stopping by my blog recently. We go to Maine a few times a year. We are kind of neighbors. That's funny that you both forgot your anni. Happy belated anniversary.

The Good Cook said...

Congratulations. 26 years is indeed a milestone to celebrate.

Hillbilly Duhn said...

LOL - every year hubs and I can't remember our exact date of the day we got married. We've been together almost seven years, but going on married three. We got married in November around Thanksgiving, and it was a busy week, so we both double check the calender to be sure of the day!!

Congrats on your day! And to 26 years!
