What Did We Do On Our 58th Wedding Anniversary???

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

It was a gorgeous day in NC, one that reminded us that Fall is just around the corner.
Was our 58th wedding anniversary and our son and wife's 18th. We all did the same thing - worked like fools!!! My husband worked hard outdoors cutting up tree that fell, power-washing the deck, and was busy from 7AM to 7 PM. I had plenty to do indoors, then got granddaughter at school to take to orthodontist. Washed hardwood floors when I got home. We had late dinner of leftovers, DH ate in one room while I sat in another. Now wasn't that a romantic way to spend an anniversary???
Our son and wife were extremely busy with work, then taking kids to various activities, etc. and there was just no time to do anything special.
Nice that I cooked a big chicken dinner last night and we all sat down together. DIL had steak dinner for all of us on Sunday.
Guess the moral of the story is that if you have a good, solid marriage, you don't have to make a big deal of an anniversary. We will do special things at another time!
58 years is a long time, yet it has gone by so quickly!!!

    Wow! I am so impressed! 58 years is a LONG time! Too bad you didn't do anything special, but like you said, your marriage is secure and you are comfortable, so that is what matters.
I think it is wonderful when 2 people can grow old together and have all of that shared history over the years......... emoticon emoticon

    Happy Anniversary! You don't see that too much any more, sort of sad! My parents have been married for about the same amount of years!

    Sounds like a great anniversary. If y'all are like us you wouldn't have been able to think of anything to talk about if you had sat down together for a special anniversary meal. :) Nothing wrong with how you spent your special day.

    Good for you! Too many people ruin a wonderful day over sentimental claptrap that didn't happen. Flowers and dinners are nice, but nothing compares to enjoying the presence of your loved one, even doing mundane things.
