This evening I was sitting with my husband after dinner when I suddenly realized that we have been married for 22 years, and together for nearly 24. Our first ‘date’ anniversary will be December 6. It was not an actual date; his band was playing, and afterwards a friend and I went with him and one of his friends to IHOP for a 2 am snack. Yes, we fell in love over pancakes.
The reason this was rather a shock was that recently when asked how long I have been married my response has been 21 years. I have misfiled my wedding day in the 1987 folder.
