Hubby in the Hot Seat - What is Today?

You know that sometimes a wife can get a little too much enjoyment out of making her husband fidget about special days. As he tried to eat his breakfast, I said to my half awake husband, "You do remember what is special about today?" After 16 years of marriage and 22 years together, I was impressed to see that he actually looked up from his Cheerios this morning with a concentrated look. The poor guy was really trying to figure out what makes today special. After about 10 minutes, I decided to let him out of the proverbial doghouse. However, I did test him for a few minutes. As I'm running around getting the lunches ready for the kids, I yell out a couple of teasers to see if I can get him thinking:

"You know that it's important to me."

"It has added so much to my day."

"I talk about it all the time."

I know he was most likely saying to himself, "Oh no, here she goes. I don't know what she is talking about." He knows better than to say that line out loud. If I had a dollar for every time he thought that...

Any guesses? Drum roll please!!!

Today is my blogaversary!! Is that's how you say it? You should have seen my husband's expression when I finally let him off the hook. Half relieved and half annoyed:) I wonder if I would have received some kind of shiny gift if I let the mystery go on all day. That would have been an interesting experiment. Well, I don't usually get anything shiny for my anniversary, so maybe I'll have to start hinting better when it comes to gifts :)

All of you know how happy I am to have found you out here in bloggyland. It has been a terrific year full of inspiration, humor, insight, generosity, gratitude and fun. I'm so looking forward to my next year of blogging. It's a beautiful way to connect with people each day. Thanks for your friendship, support, guidance and hugs!!

Do you think that hubby will put this date on his calendar next year so he won't get the grilling?

Awwww...Happy Blogaversary! Somehow between your birthday, your anniversary, the kids birthdays, the parental birthdays, Valentine's Day, Christmas, etc., I have a feeling your hubby will NOT be adding this to his calendar...ha!

Mari said...

Your poor husband! Actually I do that kind of thing to mine all the time - keeps him on his toes...
Happy Bloggoversary!

Happy blogisphericverisiery,,(maybe i spelled it wrong). I was having a melt down, I thought it was your birtday or anniversary.. lol I bet he was relieved too.

Jenners said...

First of all, Happy Blogiversary! I hope you go for years more!

Second, that was really mean ... but I love it. I mean men can barely remember an anniversary and our birthdays ... add Blogiversary to the list and their heads will explode.

: )

Caitlin said...

Haha! So cruel! Poor guy was probably frantically running dates in his mind ("Not her birthday, not our anniversary...) :)

Happy blogaversary!

Judy Harper said...

No I'm betting he doesn't put it on his calender! lol It is fun sometimes to push their buttons though! Congratulations!

Don said...

Unfair! Hubbys have enough trouble with "real" dates. Don't clutter the calendar with pseudo-anniversaries. Save the guilt trips for real stuff! (Or have fun and do it your way!)

I'm just stickin' up for hubbys everywhere!

;-)

Maybe you would have gotten a gift. Maybe he would have even mumbled something close to blogaversary as he handed it to you. You know, trying to cover all his bases between birthdays, anniversaries, etc. Probably wouldn't have meant blogaversary, but it might have came out as that... ;-)

Congrats on you blogaversary!

Congratulations on your anniversary!

I'm very glad to have found your blog (alas, I don't remember how I arrived here, beyond the fact I was doing one of my many monthly/quarterly blog surfs), and I'm very glad that you find the time to stop by and say hi on mine.

Here's to another great year of blogging for you.

Gerri said...

Happy Anniversary!!! :)

Michelle said...

Awww, happy blogoversary. But ummm, I don't think it's going to make it onto the calendar next year. Is it sad that I don't know when mine is?

Corrie Howe said...

I don't know if you follow JennyMac, but her husband made a big deal over her blogaversary. Of course, she's almost at a 1,000 followers the last time I checked.
