A brief interlude from ZOMG RL!  This may bore you wow people.  Move along, nothing to see here.

This Year (4 year anniversary)

Husband and I are sitting on the couch while Twig is watching Madagascar 2 (“LION MOVIE LION MOVIE LION MOVIE LION MOVIE” ok ok you can watch it again.)

Husband: Soon we will have been married 4 years.

Me: Oh crap, that’s today?

Husband: Nuh uh, it’s Saturday.

Me: Our Anniversary is the 14th.

Husband: The 14th is Saturday.

Me: No, it’s today.

Husband: No it’s Saturday.

Me: No, remember, the gas bill was due on the 13th which was yesterday?

Husband: Oh crap, we suck.

Me: totally.

Last Year (3 year anniversary)

(over IM, 3pm, January 14)

Me: Am I supposed to be mad that you forgot or are you supposed to be mad that I forgot.

Husband: Forgot what?

(Pause)

Husband: Oh crap!

The Year Before (2 year anniversary)

(Twig is barely 2 weeks old.  In a sleep-deprived haze, I grab some masking tape and a sharpie to label a bottle of pumped breast milk with the date.  Hrm… 1/14, looks familiar…)

Me: Oh yeah, happy anniversary.

Husband: Whatever.
