5 year anniversary since being joined at the hip

Saturday, Sept 27th marks our 5-year anniversary.  Pretty cool, eh?  Let’s take a quick look back on Sept 27 2003.  It sounds cliched, but 5 years has gone pretty fast.

I would’t say I didn’t have regrets, because that’s what happens in marriage.  You regret stupid arguments and such, but you live and learn together.  My wife and I have accomplished a lot.  We’re starting to get past the stupid arguments, apologizing faster, learning to live with each other.  We’ve got two wonderful kids, a home of our own, 1.5 working cars (oh my poor Honda!), good friends, and plenty of family memories that have brought us many smiles and laughter.

A few years ago, I took one of those online surveys on happiness, and the results came back that I was not happy.  I’m pleased to announce that while life is full of ups and downs, I’m pretty happy these days. I couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful woman to have joined at the hip. 🙂

Tomorrow night, we’re celebrating with dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse.  I don’t want anyone to think I’m too excited, but I’m getting the Cowboy ribeye steak for my entree, medium-well.

  1. Congrats on 5 years! Why would you ruin an expensive steak by ordering it well???

  2. I usually get my steaks medium or medium-well, depending on the quality of the steakhouse. Last time in Canada at a Ruth’s Chris, I got the bone-in cowboy ribeye medium-well, and it was very good. This time, I didn’t get the bone-in version, so it was a tinge dry, but still really good. I’ll opt for medium next time I go. Goooood steak though. Excellent “marblelization”, if I may invoke the office-speak cliche.

    Regular bouts of steak eating is the secret to having a good marriage. Beef fry is even better.

    Very happy for you guys, congratulations.
