Anniversary, 24-hour glue, & Atheists

Sunday was Taylor and my 1st year anniversary. Marital bliss. Due to unforeseeable circumstances, however, I spent the majority of our anniversary with my family in KS, but this is what was waiting when I got home from the airport at 9:30pm that night:

A bottle of delicious Riesling, a James Avery ring, flowers, and best of all – handmade chocolate covered strawberries.

He knows that my bedtime doesn’t budge for anything, so he made something simple and sweet. I was able to go to bed at my normal time. He’s a keeper.

After a year of marriage, a lot of terrible new-cook dinners (side note – Taylor found part of the paper butter wrapper in his mashed potatoes yesterday), and many many funny moments…

I have my top 3 pointers for engaged couples:

1. Sex is NOT like the movies. Just beware.
2. Have a date night every week and take turns planning
3. Be best friends, otherwise…yikes.

In high school,I had a Spanish teacher that was ridiculous to say the least. Among many odd things about him, he was a compulsive liar, and his classroom was always really humid and very stinky. One day, we asked Mr. Teacher if we could open the window to let some of the funk out. He immediately said no and when questioned, he thought for a minute before saying, “You can’t open that because… the janitors came by last night… and, uh…. glued the windows shut.” Clearly that wasn’t the case and, being the little farts that we were, we opened the window anyway at which point Mr. Teacher said, “Oh. Well, they must have used that 24-hour glue.” Later on in the year, he gave us all the exact same bingo sheet to play bingo. You can see how this could be a problem.

Do you know what will happen to your pets in the Rapture? If you are worried about your loved one, please view this website – this group will take care of everything for you: Eternal Earth-bound Pets. This group is very legitimate, very hilarious, and very disturbing all at the same time. How many people do you think actually paid money to this group to come and rescue their pets when they go to heaven? It’s kind of sad that these atheists think they will still be alive to take care of my Maxi boy. This is actually on their website under FAQs:

Q: How do you ensure your representatives won’t be Raptured.
A: Actually, we don’t ensure it, they do. Each of our representatives has stated to us in writing that they are atheists, do not believe in God / Jesus, and that they have blasphemed in accordance with Mark 3:29, negating any chance of salvation

Seriously, though, what does happen? Are there pets in heaven? If so, I can’t wait to see Harry (RIP – thanks a lot, Dad), Gabby, Sporty, Stripe, Maynard (not my name choice), and that one chinchilla who died at birth.

I want to end with something for you and your walk. As in the Walk…the one the atheists above obviously don’t buy into. Treasures, if you will, instead of just my rambling about weird things that really only apply to me and occasionally Taylor. Today’s nugget: John Waller’s song “While I’m Waiting”. It makes me think of incredible men and women who live this every day, i.e. Matt Chandler – young Dallas preacher fighting brain cancer while still preaching and encouraging. Gives me chills.

Speaking of, it’s cold and I’m going to cuddle with my hubs of 1 year. Jealous?

    Your blog cracks me up and makes me think all at the same time. And I hope you can imagine what a cracking up thinking person looks like.
    I am confused where the Spanish teacher story came from, but I liked it.
    Happy 1-year!
