14 years and counting
This photo was taken a year ago, but it's the only one I had on my laptop (which I'm using at the moment).
It all started about 15 years ago. Mutual friends thought they'd try to set up Bill and I, before I even knew there was a "Bill", he knew my name, age, what I looked like, where I lived, everything.. When we finally met he asked me out, I said no..., he asked again a few days later, I said ok.. a couple days later I cancelled, he asked again, I said ok... a couple days later I cancelled, he asked again, I said ok... a couple days later...YOU GUESSED IT- I cancelled... finally I think I felt so bad and he was such a persistant man that I went to his work to ask him if he'd go out with me.... but before I could get the words out, he asked one last time (and he tells me to this day that it would have definitely been the last time).. anyway I agreed. We went to the Outback Steakhouse and to a movie-- guess what he fell asleep during the movie- must of been tired out from all the rejection and finally had a moment to rest and bask in the glory that he was finally sitting next to me in a dark place.. HA HA HA!!!
Long story shortened for your reading pleasure- 3 daughters, many many pets, many trials later here we are 14 years married today! I love him and he loves me and we are excited for another 14 years!
