God Help Us We are Getting Old

1. We are buying "useful" gifts for each other and even sometimes not buying
2. More often, we are eating at home...more-for-less-cost-than-hotel. We are still doing it, but a lot less. And to top it all, we are actually believing that the home-made one is a lot better than what we eat outside!
3. We are buying clothes like once or twice in a year- and preferably alone without the other offering any opinion
4. We are not fighting over remote- and when we do that like once in a year, the kids gain since we both put cartoon as a result and walk away from the TV
5. We are also watching cartoon
6. We are over excited about the range of children's Cds we purchased
7. We have not watched movie together after putting the kids to sleep this year at all
8. We go to the movie with the kids otherwise not
9. We are doing our walks/ badminton sessions separately and are not on each other's head forcing the other to join
10. Our best recreation is spending time with neighbours
11. After fights we do not bother to make up. The husband has the audacity to start off as if nothing happened and doesn't even bother to notice that I am sulking.
12. We are even sometimes calling each other Dadda or Mamma

Happy 6th Anniversary Dadda!

Number 11! Yeah! :)

How do we know said...

Hey Happy Aniversary. Is it on 4th or on 8th.

It should be 8th..(coz its from you)

You are bitten by a bug called -"Working Syndrome". It steals the precious moments that a couple gets to spend together...

Me too bitten by it....

The 11th point is so true: They start talking as if no argument has never, ever taken place.

May God shower you both and kids with his blessings on this beautiful day!!!

Happy Anniversary !! As you said, as we the years by, we buy gifts that are 'useful' to each other than the fancy stuff. I guess thats bcos of the other responsibilities(kids) we have and other finances. Nowadays, we too never have funds for our fancies - Preethi

Happy Anniversary to you both! We are already like this and it has just been 3 years since we got married :). But we know each other for 8 years now, that could be the reason too.

Happy Anniversary !

The other day a friend told me we eat out twice a week. (as in she and her husband)
I almost concluded they were getting a lot of couple time when she added he goes out on saturdays and me on sundays ;)
