11th Wedding Anniversary Coming Up

On March 18, 2006, Angel and I will have been married for 11 years. I find that the longer we are married, the more people are astounded. And that's not so much astonishment that we're a married interracial couple. People are just amazed that a marriage can last this long and that we're still in love and happy! That's just sad, in my opinion, but such is the way things are...

We are planning a little getaway together next weekend, a bed and breakfast out of town. We have made arrangements for the kids so that they will have a blast with family while we are away for a few days.

We do plan on taking some pictures, so I'll post what I can when the time is right.

It really is very important to have some alone time as a couple, a change of routine for yourself, your spouse and for the kids, too. It keeps everybody from getting burned out by repetitive routines and the run-of-mill feeling that can set in when you don't get vacations in a while. It's also equally important to do things as a family and take family vacations. (One thing at a time, have to make sure you can afford it and have the time to take off from work).

Oh, and we finally got our van repaired! The van still needs a tune-up and a new set of spark plugs but at least her gears shift properly now. We'll be driving her on our little getaway vacation.

Well, that's it for now. See ya!

Best Wishes,
