The Hopeless Romantic I am Not

I will be the first to admit that I am not the romantic type.  My husband is used to it and we have an understanding so all is good.

I think it started with our second wedding anniversary.  I totally missed it.  Whiz – day went right by.  Then the next week, the next month.  By the time I remembered I think it was at least two months afterwards. When I suddenly realized my major faux pas, my husband did not say a word.  He walked over to the hall closet, opened it up and pulled out my anniversary gift and handed it to me.  I still feel bad about that day.   So now I use technology and put my anniversary in my phone under “dates to remember.”  I still have to make sure I don’t just ignore the reminder.

Which brings me to a different story.  Around this same time, my sister-in-law gave Michael and I a wonderful anniversary gift.  It was a matte frame picture of a song that included a space for a picture.  The problem?  I had absolutely NO IDEA what it meant.  Although I KNEW it was supposed to mean something.  Linda finally had to tell me that the song was from our wedding ceremony and I was supposed to put one of our wedding pictures in it.  Yeah, totally over my head.

Because this is how it went down:

Kay Marie (friend from work):  I would LOVE to sing at your wedding!

Me: Uh, okay.

Kay Marie:  I usually do two songs – which two would you like me to do?

Me: I don’t care, you can pick.

And that was the end of that.  Kay Marie did have a really good voice and was free so it was pretty nice of her.  But to this day I have no idea what two songs she sang.  Linda knew.  And how she found such a nice framing matte of the song was pretty cool. I just wish I would have gotten it.

I haven’t changed.  And the reason I know that is from this text message that I recently sent to my husband;
