7 Year Anniversary

It has been such a long, exhausting year that I actually had to look back on this blog to remember what Adam and I did on our 6th year anniversary. I had a good laugh when I read it. Last year I marveled at how much our lives had changed in such a short time. But since that time last year, our lives have changed dramatically yet again.

As is the nature of life I can only say with absolute uncertainty that things will not keep changing more and more dramatically in the years to come.

There is a popular adage about 7 years, called the 7 year itch. That after 7 years people tend to re-evaluate their relationship. Was it true for Adam and I? After all, last year we were dining at a top Chicago restaurant for our anniversary. This year we haven’t managed to do more than hang an open suggestion in the air about a dinner out sometime in the future.

Because of this 7 year itch concept, I actually thought long and hard before I wrote this blog about the things that need fixing in my life. I will say that I’m not without my itches.

Luckily, none have anything to do with my relationship with my husband. In fact, the only really big itch I have in my life that needs scratching is my need for more uninterrupted sleep. And the only person who does anything about it happens to be my husband. Each week he asks Angelica to come early, sometimes without talking to me, to make sure I get more rest. And for that I’m grateful.

In fact, at this point in my life I’ll take sleep over a fancy dinner any day. Still, all this writing about anniversaries has made me realize I ought to motive. Instead of blogging I should be booking a restaurant and the babysitter!
