Sunday cleaning and the 2nd Anniversary of our Marriage

A house can only go so long without demanding the ‘C’ word. When the dust bunnies develop fangs, and the ones living atop the ceiling fan grow claws that reach out and snatch the carrots out of our salad… it’s time to bring out the big guns.

The Pledge, the SOS pads, the Future Floor Wax, the Blue Window Cleaner and extra paper towels. Scrub brushes and sponges, more trash bags to clean up the clutter and the debris.

Kind of sounds like we’ve been living in a dump! Well, it’s not quite that bad. But it was time to clean, and clean GOOD! With proper care and maintenance this should last a good 3 months or so. And then it will be time to do it again.

I thought we’d put away all the Christmas decorations. Not so! Found a few. But we’ve already put away all the big Christmas storage boxes, so they may live with us out in the open for about 10 months.

And Yes, I know today is Super Bowl. But that’s nothing compared to the fact that today is Our 2nd Anniversary! 2 years of marriage to a truly wonderful man. We have that marriage that I always dreamed about, that I wondered if it even existed. Well, it does. And I have it. In the 2 years we’ve been married, we’ve never had a fight. Not even an argument. Doesn’t mean we always agree with each other, but it does mean we respect each other enough to listen and talk out the issues at hand. I have to say, I LOVE not fighting. It’s lovely, it’s peaceful, it’s endearing, it’s the true meaning of Jesus command to us to ‘consider each other as more important than your yourself’ (my very loose interpretation) and I can tell you that it makes for a Very Good Relationship.

So, last night we went to dinner at our favorite restaurant to celebrate. It went really well and we were having a great time until I got sick. Just out of the blue – as soon as our dinner was set before us, I got all hot and cold and knew I was going to share what I’d already eaten. I had to get out of there, quick! I went outside, which was very cold – about 10 degrees – and took some big gulps of freezing air… and started to feel better. We got our dinner ‘to go’ and went home. And then I felt fine. Had some really good lunch today! ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, back to cleaning. I’ll be back to work tomorrow, nose to the grindstone!

    Belated Happy Anniversary!

    We had our 2nd anniversary August 28th. My guy’s pretty good too! Wouldn’t trade him for the world! We never argue either … my sweetie pie would never dream of raising his voice. It was a first marriage for both of us … he was 55 and I was 50.

    thanks Shannon ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m glad you have a great husband too, Eileen. It’s nice to hear from the Happily Marrieds, instead of the Unhappily Marrieds. ๐Ÿ™‚
