14 And Counting...

Yesterday, Kelsee and I "celebrated" our 14th Wedding Anniversary. I put the verb above in quotes because here's how we celebrated: 1. We had a fight the evening before. Yes, we made up before we went to bed. (Everybody, get your minds out of the gutter. It wasn't like that, and even if it was, I wouldn't tell you here.) 2. I slept through the alarm and was awakened by Kirk (my friend and the guy I carpool with) calling my cell wondering where I was. I showered and was out the door after a hasty kiss for my wife. 3. I forgot that I had a gift for Kelsee that I wanted to have waiting for her when she woke up, so I called her while I was on the road and told her where she could find it. (I'll explain why I didn't just wait until I got home in a moment.) 4. I worked all day. 5. I went and administered a final exam for one of my classes. 6. Several students ended up staying after the final exam to received last minute help completing some assignments. I didn't leave until 9:40. Mind you, I mentioned it was my anniversary, and we even talked about it for a while. The students kept saying things like "your wife is going to hate us" or "I'm almost done". 7. I arrived home about 10:30, exhausted. 8. Kelsee was tired and also not feeling well. We chatted until about midnight about this and that, then ventured to the land of nod. 9. That's it. 10. Seriously. Kelsee made a good point last night, though. We don't need to wait for a specific day to commemorate our marriage and love. Hopefully, we're commemorating every day. We're even commemorating during a three-day romantic excursion to the mountains of West Virginia starting tomorrow. The thing is, I think we are both most looking forward to sleeping in each morning. That and the absence of anyone who speaks Whinese. (If I walk into a restaurant and hear a whiny kid, I'm going to dump my entire bowl of salsa/bottle of A1/plate of linguine over his or her head. I'm guessing his or her parents will hug me with tears of gratitude in their eyes, and everyone else will be jealous because they didn't think of it first.) I really don't care what we do on our trip, as long as I'm with my sweetie. (Sure, you can use words like "cheesy", "suck-up", or just roll your eyes, but that doesn't make the above sentence any less true. So snicker all you want. If everybody had as good a marriage as we do, the world would be a heck of a lot better place.)
