Seven years on the seventh.

Posted on: April 7, 2008

Today is our seventh anniversary, so here’s a little sample of what we looked like way back when.  We look a little older now and I’ve put on some weight, which I guess is to be expected considering I was on the amazing “find out your dad has terminal lung cancer 10 days before your wedding and oh yeah, you’ll also be losing your job sometime shortly after you return from your honeymoon” diet.  It worked, but I’d rather not lose weight that way.  (As it turned out, my dad died on May 4, which was also the last day I was employed.  I got very fat that summer.)

Speaking of weight, I am down 5 pounds with SparkPeople…and I’m not even doing a great job!  But I am paying more attention to what I eat and I’m trying to get more exercise.  It must be working, so I’ll stick with it.  If you want a referral let me know and I’ll send you one.

Last night, we had a conversation that went like this:

J: I want to get you guys a present for your anniversary.

M: I would love it if you just listened to me and did everything I asked the first time I asked it.  Do you think you can do that?

J: ……………….

M: J?

J: Shhhhhhhhhh…I’m thinking if I can.

W Family Players

D is the dad, the husband, and the breadwinner. All around nice guy and good at pretty much everything he does. It's disgusting, really. But makes him worth keeping around.

M is the mom, the wife, and the hopeless housekeeper. At least the kids' heads haven't fallen off yet. Beyond that, she sucks at the "stay at home" thing. Oh, and she's the blogger.

J is the big boy. Born October 11 2002, he is in kindergarten and loves it. Now 6 years old, and too smart for his own good. Talks a lot but extremely entertaining.

C is the little boy. Born June 26, 2006, he went through a lot in his first year but is doing just fine now. The only blond in the family, so his paternity is routinely questioned by rude strangers.

V is our baby girl. She is brand new and arrived in January 2009. So far everything is going well. We're thrilled to have added the final piece to our family puzzle. And yes, she WILL be the final piece!
