Today is our 40th. Anniversary plus Gord's 68th. Birthday....  I thought is was 39 years married...but apparently all  my years of accounting experience went to shit.. I still count on my fingers...and if there isn't a calculator on hand I am kerfuffled. 

Friends and family were over last night....so tonite we will just make some faux chinese food.  Mostly shrimp....yum and a chicken stir fry with all the good veggies... and Basmati rice with pineapple sauce.

It's been a long hard road ...these 40 years.  Sometimes I didn't think I would make it. It has been a roller coaster ride.... for both of us.  It's not easy being married to a Scorpio...when you are a Libra.  That should never happen.  A balanced person such as I should never marry a person who is a risk taker, crazy in the head, never gives up, and really never tells you how he feels.

Today he did.... in a Anniversary card..... I cried.

Hubby and I are Libra/Scorpio, married 30 years. In a time when divorce is so prevalent I can't help but wonder how we did that either. My hubby sympathizes with you.

Well, that made me shed a few tears also, Joan. I can't imagine it because I failed twice, each after 3 l/2 years. Of course it was NOT my fault. :)

My little bro and his bride will be 40 years in January. Dang I'm gettin' old.

I'm glad you and Gord are still together!
