Seventeen Years

11/26/94 was our wedding day, so 17 years together tomorrow.
That’s about it really. I’d love to say that I had some major plans for tomorrow, but I don’t. I actually slept for twelve hours last night as opposed to my usual seven. Supposedly I’ve been off all week, but it’s just been one thing after the other. Eldest daughter’s school was locked down all Wednesday for a “Columbine-like threat” on Facebook. All safe and sound, but not exactly restful.
I think the only plan is a quiet dinner out. Sounds good to me.
Jennifer:  Wow, seventeen years seems like a long time, but it just keeps getting better. Quiet dinner out, check.  Fabulously wonderful anniversary sex, check.  My job is done. 


  1. Congratulations!
    Here wishing one hundred to start, Sincerely.

    Congratulations. 17.years is quite an accomplishment, these days especially. We celebrated our 22nd the day before you. Thanks to family obligations and a back injury we got neither the dinner out nor the hot anniversary sex this year, but oh well. One of the benefits of having a consistently good sex life is you can weather disappointments like that easily. I'll take great sex on the odd Tuesday over once a year anniversary sex any day.

  4. Congratulations from a big fan! Enjoy yourselves.

  5. Congratulations, and many, many more happy years together. We will celebrate 26 years on Wednesday. It has been a good marriage, but even better since I found your blog and book.

  6. Congrats to you both. You and Jennifer are an awesome example of a good marriage.

  7. Many happy returns of the day!
