20 Years!!!!!!!!!

An amazing day. Bill and I have been together for 20 years as of today! We met each other a few days before, but our first date was on this day. I got Bill an anniversary card and wished him a Happy Anniversary. It's been the best 20 years of his life, right? He said "oh, I didn't know we were doing cards." I told him we were doing rings, but he didn't get that memo I guess:)

Today we spent a few hours at the cemetery planting flowers at three graves. We were packing up and getting ready to leave when my uncle Charlie pulled in the driveway. He is on the "Cemetery Committee" in our family. Basically he plants at some graves, another person plants at other graves, etc. We have a family reunion every third Sunday in August. We have officers and committees and such. One of the committees is the cemetery one. So my uncle was over planting three flowers for my mom and dad. I am glad we were planting after. They usually plant after us and they always put the flowers right smack dab in front. We sort of have our way of planting there, so when they come along, they mess it up a tad. Not that I am ungrateful because I am not. I am very grateful.

My uncle only stayed 30 minutes or so. We then headed over to start planting. I bring a chair and a magazine and Bill and Ping plant. She loves to help! We put the three flowers my uncle planted in the back of the stone with our petunias! We were there for what seemed life forever. It's quite time consuming to plant at three graves.

When we got home, we went through Bill's t-shirts and shorts to see what he has. We then headed out to do some shopping. Bill needed shirts and some shorts desperately. We then went to Chilis. We haven't been there in a long time. I wanted to go home, but Ping was complaining she was hungry and it was late, so we just went there since it was so close by. She passed out right after she ate. On the way home I asked Bill to stop at Blockbuster so I could rent a movie I have been wanting to see. I rented two! I just finished watching the first one. Well turning in since it's 2:00 am. We have a lot to do tomorrow.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Mama Out!!!!!

Getting ready to head out to the cemetery.

There they go.

The back. It's wet since we cleaned the stone.

The front. There is dirt on it to the right. Ignore that part, it's usually clean!
