10 Years of Wedded Bliss

On February 7th it will be 10 years that my hubby has had to put up with my ISSUES (and I his but we won't go into that).

Long ago I said I wanted to get re-married in Vegas by Elvis for our 10th but time and money have nixed that plan.

So I Googled 10th Anniversary to find some ideas. Did you know that the Traditional 10th wedding anniversary gift is Aluminium and Tin. So my mind immediately went to the gutter. I'm certain that I could spring for a roll of Aluminium foil but do you know that there are actually laws against wearing Aluminium underwear? I did find an alternative in these Calvin Klein Steel underwear but I guess thats more of a gift for myself .

A contemporary or modern Tenth anniversary gift has a theme of Diamond Jewelery but alas we come up against the lack of money situation again. No diamond anniversary band for me and no diamond studded lingerie for hubby. LOL!

The flowers associated with the Tenth anniversary are Daffodils and while I do like Daffodils I don't love them so I think not.

So if anyone has an idea that costs...well basically nothing...drop me a line. I could use the help.

The Latest Obsession...

Jacob has been polling his friends since September to see who would be attending. Every day a new list of friends who say 'yes' the will come. Is he my kid or what?

So we've decided on a bowling party. the invitations are being hand-delivered today. I can only hope that I don't end up with 21 Kindergartners. It just didn't seem right to exclude anyone...

Happy Birthday to Me

Well, 38 came and went with only a little pain and suffering. It actually passed in a whirl of disinfectant and lots of laundry since Hannah came down with a stomach virus. We postponed any and all celebrating until the next weekend and held our collective breaths in the hopes that nothing else would go wrong.

And we made it! Mom made Sour Beef and Dumplings (my annual birthday dinner menu wish) and we devoured it amidst great company and a couple of good bottles of wine.

I can't list all the great gifts I received so my 3 fave gifts are: Mom's Dinner, The card from my MIL (the gifts were great too but the card was the best) and radiant floor heating in the Bathroom from my Hubby ( took 2 days to install but I now have warm tootsies in the morning).

So, 38 got off to a rocky start but its getting better already and it's only just begun.

My Obsession

Hubby and I were given the first season of Jericho on DVD for Christmas. We watched almost non-stop once we started and now I'm totally obsessed.

All I can say is thank God it is coming back because I might have a breakdown if I couldn't find out what happened to the people of Jericho.

If you haven't seen it I strongly urge you to go watch the 1st season. It's totally engrossing. I actually find myself wondering how I would cook if I had no power. Maybe I should go solar so I can survive? LOL. See I told you I was obsessed.

Happy New Year!
