Half a lifetime

It's been a while since I blogged, but I have an excuse! As of yesterday, I have been married for half my life. I'm not strong in math, but I can do my "twice times," and it occurred to me that this was the only year that could ever be true— baring some unexpected longevity breakthrough followed by divorce and a second marriage (I write science fiction and I'm literal about words like “ever”).

My husband and I got married on Columbus Day weekend (not, as jongibbs would have you believe a celebration of Peter Falk's TV show). This accident clever planning means we always have a three-day weekend nearby to celebrate our anniversary, and so this year we went here:


That's the Robert Morris Inn, in Oxford, on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. We had a near-perfect weekend and the rest of the photos can be found here. And that's why I didn't blog this weekend!

Many congrats! I didn't know that we shared days of celebration! (And yes, the long weekend is always wonderful...)

Happy Half-you-life Anniversary! (I would sparkle you, but LJ is behaving badly and won't post my sparkles.)

I already called. Unless I'm willing to press charges, they can't do anything.

Congrats!

And how interesting that Irene and I were ALSO married on a three-day weekend. Labor Day!

Happy Anniversary! Apparently, you got married later than I did, since I think you've been married about as long? I've already passed my 'half my life' anniversary. We celebrated 29 years over the weekend and I'm a wee bit younger than 58. Or is it the other way round and you're younger and been married fewer years? I'm so confused.

It was a 3-day weekend in New England, but it's almost never been a 3-day weekend and it's very close to final tax deadlines. We've never gone anywhere for it and Jason long since stopped sending me flowers. He kissed me on the head yesterday morning as a celebration. I'm glad you two went away!

I am a tad older; I got married at 30. At least the math is easy.
