The Seven Year Itch

Not around here!  Today is mine and Andy's seven year wedding anniversary and I really am just so happy.  He knows how bat shit crazy I can be and totally knows how to work around it.  He understand when I need a break.  He understands the bizarre things that give me anxiety and totally compensates for me.

He never puts his keys in the draw and he leaves 4 pairs of shoes by the door and he has clutter blindness and couldn't care less if the floors are clean and he cares way too much about what I eat and if I exercise and he never puts things together when he says he will but every night he pours me a glass of wine and we watch TV together.  Every day he tells me to sit and finish my coffee while he walks with a fussy baby.  He loves our girls so fiercely that it doesn't leave much room for disappointment that he'll never have a son.  He makes my lunch and deals with insurance companies and lets me completely fall apart when I need to.

We've been down roads that we never thought we'd find our way back from, but we always come back to each other.

We've been through loss, buying a house, selling a house, buying another one, we have two beautiful physical manifestations of our love, we've worried about money, we've traveled, we've stayed up all night talking, we've given each other the silent treatment.  We know how to fight and we know how to love.  We've built a wonderful life together brick by brick.  I love where we've been.  I love where we are and I can't wait to see where we go.  I also can't wait to see if he'll ever clean up his clutter.  Here's to seven more years of nagging.

What a beautiful love story. I write a lot about my relationship; and it's filled with "what not to dos" My husband had the seven year itch seven years early. We've been through the... I want to say storm but that's too gentle a word for what we've been through. But I'm happy to say we made it through; not in one piece: We are divorced but back together getting along better than ever before. But we had stepchildren between us so that added to our issues. Anyway, I don't want to write a book over here. I get kind of long winded. Again, thanks for stopping by. If you ever want a good laugh about relationship battles, come on over to my place at tea room diaries, grab a cup of tea, and enjoy the reading.
