Sixteen Years!

The (Cyber) Bag of Weasels

"About as much fun as a bag of weasels"...when I first saw this Irish adage, it made me think of the life of a writer: sometimes perilous, sometimes painful, certainly interesting. My paper journal has always been called "The Bag of Weasels." This is the Bag of Weasels' online home.

Sixteen Years!

First of all, a happy birthday to my dear friend hrymfaxe! I miss you and hope our paths will cross soon. :)

Today is another important occasion as well: It is Bobby's and my sixteenth anniversary. Sixteen years! Wow! (This is obviously sixteen years together, not sixteen years married. I did not get married when I was fourteen!)

But I did know almost right away that I wanted to marry Bobby. We've been inseparable for nearly the whole of that sixteen years and still are. He's an amazing person and an amazing husband, and I know how lucky I am to have him.

We got together at about 9 PM on the 31st at our high school's end of the year dance, so sixteen years ago at this time, our relationship was about 45 minutes old. Awwww. :)

Today was a low-key day but a good one. It was a half-day for the kids, which meant a shamefully easy day at work, as my first period class is all seniors (most of whom didn't come to school today) and my second period class had all of two students, and except for lunch coverage, I was free for the rest of the day.

Today was our Teacher Appreciation Month luncheon, which is a nice gesture for us on the part of the administration. We went out to a restaurant (that didn't have a lot I could eat, but a free lunch is a free lunch) and got nice gift bags from our principal. Then we got to go home early for the day.

Bobby and I took the Goldens walking at Charlotte's Quest, then we had a Latin lecture tonight, which we listened to on the back patio, enjoying the gorgeous weather and a can of Natty Boh. (That's the great thing about online school, as they definitely frown on bringing Natty Boh into actual lecture halls!) We had a pretty basic pasta-and-tomato-sauce dinner after that. Bobby did buy me a bunch of my favorite flowers: sunflowers!

Tomorrow, we're actually going out for our anniversary, but today was a beautiful and good day nonetheless.

  • Aww! That's very sweet. :-) One of my friends from college also married her high school sweetheart. It makes me happy when I hear stories like that. May you and Bobby enjoy many many happy years to come!

    (And yay Latin! Latin is one of my favorite things ever.)
