Here we go again

This weekend held a great deal of activity for me and I will be trying desperately to wake up refreshed for a few days yet. We begun by pawning off the chilluns to the ever generous couple sister/brother in-law. This gave my wife and I a chance to run to Ottawa for my cousin's wedding on Sunday. Okay, so we drove, but given the traffic in spots a runner could have likely had a similar arrival time! The other side benefit of this arrangement is that the in-law set could decide if they really wanted to risk having their own kids (although if they can handle mine then they are assuredly going to be able to handle their own). My cousin had asked me to take pictures for her at the wedding so it made another thing very interesting as well.

WheeeeeeeeThis ensured that I would be tied up most of the day for photography, making the day a bit of a write off for seeing my wife. In itself it is a good relationship you have when you can drive for over 6 hours to a wedding and then abandon your wife with your family. You really know you have an understanding and amazing wife when you can do all this on your own anniversary day!! That's right, an event I tried to warn you all about last year so if you were unprepared then that is your fault not mine. After six years we have only scratched the surface of a long and happy future. She is still suffering through that moment of weakness that overcame her and made her agree to marry me, but she seems to accepted her fate and is trudging along nicely.

Look behind you!The wedding was cool, my wife is amazing and I am exhausted. More to come once I've slept a bit. Oh, and for those Canucks in the pile I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

OK I get the wedding being cool... There is no doubt that your wife is amazing (she is a woman and married to you, so that goes without saying)... but WHY are you exhausted?

Something nefarious, no doubt...;)

I can't believe you were in Ottawa and you didn't even come for a visit.

Happy Anniversary. And Thanksgiving.
I also can't believe you were in Ottawa and you didn't visit me either. Not that I live there. But if I did you still wouldn't have visited..

My in-laws live in the Ottawa region and I know the horrors of that particular drive.

Thanksgiving traffic is easily three and a half times worse than Christmas traffic. My condolences on the drive, and also, way to go! It's a tough one and you are a survivor.

Perhaps your wife is already resigned to being deserted on your wedding anniversary? I hope not!

Happy Anniversary! I'm too tired to write something lovely and sentimental. Just think of something really good and pretend I wrote it here.
