5 years of wedded bliss

Who knew when we left that beach nearly 6 years ago and replanted ourselves in Missouri that life would be this good?

In five short years of wedded bliss, there has been:
The wedding from hell, arguments with in laws (over dirty dishes, of course), and the rockets red glare;

Trips to the ER, broken bones, kidney stones, and batteries in bellies;

We've survived colicky babies, drug busts on neighbors, and cat pee on the floors;

There was a housing boom and an even bigger boom that ended with recession;

We've battled squirrels and birds and mice and occassionally enjoyed a woodchuck;
We taught our kid how to walk and talk (curse words not included) and swim and ride his bike;

There've been minivans and farmer tans and several visits from the firemans (sic);

There've been tantrums and toots and piles of loot from plenty of flea markets;
We've listened to I can't, I won't, I need, I want, mommy, mommy, MOMMY!;

And to think I haven't even stabbed anyone with the decorative scissors!

At the end of the day, it's just you and I, happy to be in our flowers bed, with rarely an argument in sight.

Just a poke to the ribs to get you to roll over again, will you please stop that snoring!

I love you my Dear, it's been pretty swell here, and I look forward to seeing you each morning.
