Had you been in my kitchen a few days ago, you would have witnessed this conversation...
Me: "Oh my gosh! Jay! I just realized that on the 21st, we will have been married for 20 years!"
Jay: "I know! Wait. We were married on the 21st? What???? I thought we were married on the April 24th."
Me: "No, I'm pretty sure it was the 21st."
Jay: "Oh." (Puzzled expression on his face.)
Me: "Wait a minute...was it on the 24th???? I seriously do not know."
Jay: "I have no idea." (We both start laughing at our lameness.)
Kyra: (Yelling from the living room.) "My birthday is on October 21st. Maybe you are thinking of my birthday."
Jay: "Hey, I know how to figure it out. I put it on my Google calendar!"
And so we figured it out. Young and clueless, we married on April 24, 1993 in Kalispell, MT. It is nothing short of a miracle that we are still together and still actually like each other. Really. We've persevered and I can say in all honesty that Jay is my best friend. Rarely does a day go by that he doesn't crack me up. Laughter and prayer...the 2 most important ingredients in the recipe for a successful marriage.
Happy 20 years, JP! I just want to take a minute to apologize for throwing that Timberland hiking boot at your head that day about 19 years ago. You have to admit, I may throw like a girl, but I only missed your head by about an inch. Impressive! :-)
