Happy Anniversary, Mommy and Daddy!

Today is my parents' 42nd wedding anniversary. Yay for them! I think the secret to their longevity is that my mother spends six months a year at her villa in Italy, while my dad stays here, but hey, whatever it takes!!

Because I'm celebrating such a wonderful occasion, I won't bitch about school today, or the fact that there were STILL frickin' kids there today!!!!!!

I'm off to meet my family at the bar to celebrate 42 wonderful years. OK, 42 years ;-)

I couldn't pick just one today, sorry:

This is pretty funny. My husband and I are separated and loving it. We spend most of our days together when he's not flying (he's a pilot) but at the end of our days, he goes home and I stay here. It's great having our space, but it's starting to be a bit expensive. Maybe I should just have him move back in and let him send me off to your mom's Italian villa the other six months of the year? I'm thinkin' that'll work for me!
