I can't believe it has been 5 years. When we first got married, it was weird to sleep in the same bed with some one else. I had trouble falling asleep for a while. Now, it's weird when she's not there. When I turn 55 years old, I will hit the point where I will have been married longer than I was single. That is a long way off, and I think that my life already feels that real. She has been such a great partner, friend, confidant, and lover (yeah, I said it!). I know I am a lucky guy. Happy anniversary, Kristy (if you ever read this...). ;)
Apparently the 5 year anniversary is the "Wood" anniversary. So, today (August 9th), I am trying to find a good wooden gift to give my wife (view what she does all day here). Well, since marriages don't last as long as they used to, some people have tried to push for a modernization of the traditional anniversary gifts. Some are saying that 5 years is now the "Silverware" anniversary. Kristy says if I buy here silverware I won't be sleeping in the bed tonight.
