Four years? Seriously?

As of March 19th, 2009, Matt and I have been married for four years. Crazy, I know. I can't believe it myself. But, the date of the marriage license does not lie. And you know what the sad thing is? I forgot. Ok, ok, before you all jump down my throat I would like to say that I hadn't completely forgotten. I knew it was coming up soon and I kept thinking about it, because Matt had been hinting that he had something planned but he wasn't going to tell me what it was. But on the day of our anniversary, it totally slipped my mind. But, in my defense, I really didn't feel well. I had a migraine and when Matt came home, I was sitting on the floor because it was the most comfortable spot I could find that didn't make my head want to explode. Sweet thing that he is, he gave me a hug and and said, "Happy Anniversary."

The next day, Matt revealed his surprise: got got tickets to see the North Carolina Symphony!

That night, we went to dinner and then on to the symphony. The concert was pretty good. The program was as follows:
  • Anatol Liadov: Kikimora
  • Shostakovich: Piano Concerto No. 1
  • Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 4
I really liked the first piece and the Tchaikovsky. I could have done without the middle one. It was really abstract with no clear melody. Call me old fashioned, but I like a good melody. Any way, we really had a good time.

I was thinking about all the things that have happened over the past four years. I've learned I should not be involved in snow sports, had surgery as a result of a snow sport, went to Australia, got a cat, Matt went to both Britain and India, got in to NC State, bought a house, and welcomed three new nephews. It's been a pretty busy four years.

  1. I hear you with the migraines taking over. I remember I had one once in Jackson, WY on the way to the place we were staying. We needed some food for breakfast and lunch the next day so we had to stop at a grocery store. It was the longest 45 minutes of my life and I could make no decisions what so ever!!!

  2. I think it's funny that you were laying on the floor because it was the most comfortable place. I've been sick several times and there is nothing like a nice cool floor to dull the pain.
