It's funny how we can get so addicted to some new toy that we cannot even imagine living without it. Perfect example, my iPhone. Even when they first came out, my first thought was who needs all that stuff in their pocket? My Razor cell phone is just fine. And then I got my iPhone and I was in love--it turned out the person who needs all that stuff in her pocket is me.
When Spanky threw my iPhone in the pool, waiting for that thing to dry was the longest 24 hours of my life. I felt lost not knowing what the weather would be like in five days or listening to my tunes. If someone handed me a CD for music, I'd be looking for the next guy that was going to hit me on the head and drag me to his cave. Yeah, CDs are that prehistoric now. But 11 years ago, CDs were the thing--so much cooler than cassette tapes (ever heard of those?).
And then there's TiVo. Good grief, what did we do before TiVo--watch TV when it was on with the commercials. Oh goodness no! I cannot stand watching live TV anymore. Life is too short to wait for that next scene during commercials. But 11 years ago, I did because I did not know any better. I wonder how I managed to live back then.
11 years ago, I would plan my day for myself. I would decide if I wanted to blow my entire paycheck on a pair of shoes or pay off a bill. Then I got married. And I truly cared for someone else more than me. I suddenly had a whole other person that made me a complete person. 11 years ago I thought I was happy but now I know better. Thanks you, Mike, my wonderful incredible amazing husband, I know what it is to live life to its fullest. And I could never imagine going back to 11 years ago.
Happy Anniversary Sweetie! I love you more today that 11 years ago! Thanks for all the joy you bring!
Quick correction to a previous post--it has been almost 11 years (not 12) since I have been nursing and/or pregnant. Hard to get pregnant on your honeymoon a year before your wedding ;)
