Married Swirling

HELP! Ten Year Anniversary Coming, No Fracking Idea What To Do!

We met in 1999, in a Yahoo chat room. Little did I know my slacking off would lead to such a wonderful life, full of ups and downs, highs and lows. My husband is amazing–great dad, provider, lover, plus he’s funny. In fact, much of the humor you see on this blog is because after 13 years, his dry wit has rubbed off on me.

So on April 27, 2012, we’ll be married a whole decade. Which I find hilarious, because I know there were some folks at the wedding who thought we wouldn’t last 10 months. So to them I say…



Okay, so with that out of the way, I need some gift ideas. The Hubster is so easy that he’s complicated to buy for. He likes to build things–tools and stuff. But am I seriously going to buy him tools for our anniversary? He also could care less about clothes and shoes, so forget even suggesting that. We like to travel, but it’s just not in the budget. I would have loved to have gone back to Maui, where we spent our honeymoon. That place rocked, but I didn’t really get a chance to take it all in, because I was so preoccupied with the move to our first home, which was in escrow while we were making whoopee with the ocean waves crashing in the distance.

So, I’m open to suggestions. Be creative. Impress me.

BTW, Have you new folks seen The Hubster? He’s pretty cute…
