The Worst Wife in the World Award

I am the Worst Wife in the WorldTM. I might possibly be the Worst Woman in the World, but let's not be too harsh!

Why am I the WWitW?



Today is June 1st right?

My first thought: Today is something special. Hmmm. I wonder what it is. Rent is Due Day. Pay Day. It's also Marilyn Monroe's birthday(but I've never really been a Marilyn girl, I'm more of an Audrey girl).

I've been sitting here all day with a nagging feeling that I was forgetting something, but since school got out last week, that's been a chronic condition for me.

Just a few minutes ago, I called my husband (aka, the Best Husband in the World and aka the Hottest Guy in the World) who said, as tradition dictates: "Hi! Who is this?" and I say "Me" and he says "Oh, you mean the one who shares an anniversary with me?"

And, ohmygod, I am such a bad liar! Do you think I could have just said "Of course! Yeah, I totally knew that and I was just waiting to see if you remembered!"? No. I said "Oh shit! I totally forgot."

'Cause I'm an idiot and also? The Worst Wife in the World. *hangs head in shame*

So, there you have it. My own public admission and apology for forgetting. Seriously. What kind of girl forgets the day she was united in bestfriendom and state sanctioned matrimony by the State of Nevada to the hunkiest guy on the planet?

Here is my lame attempt at an excuse though (I have one!): We've been friends for 15 years and together for 6 of them. We got legally hitched 2 years ago. It was totally spontaneous and spur of the moment and we did it without telling anyone first. I firmly believe that people should focus more on the "marriage" itself and less on the actual "wedding". But that's just me. (Secret confession: If money were no object, I probably would have spent $50K and invited every person I've ever met or stood in line at Starbucks with.) Anyway, I haven't regretted getting married once (except at tax time) and I would do it again without hesitation. In fact, we probably will do it again someday! Getting married is fun!

I totally do not deserve him. And, so far, this is all I have to give him - A blog post and a picture of the traditional 2nd anniversary gift:





I love you, Mr. Q! I am so glad I married you and I am so proud to be your wife! Happy Anniversary!

Aw, congratulations to you both!! I never had a wedding either (in the formal sense), but lately as I've been invited to attend several weddings, I've begun to feel a little cheated. (Okay, admittedly, I feel the most cheated when I'm buying off of everyone else's bridal registries, realizing all the GOODS I missed out on! heheh) I just told my kids recently that perhaps someday me and mine will get hitched again, this time with a real wedding! Congratulations again, and bravo for owning up to your forgetfulness. I'm sure as wonderful as Mr. Q sounds that he has already forgiven you!
