So, last Thursday was my 4th year wedding anniversary. It started out like any other Thursday except for the "Happy Anniversary Sweetheart" I got from my wonderful husband.

I then came to work. After a while one of my bosses came into my office to tell me that I had Friday off. I told him that I had not asked for it off and he told me not to worry about it, I had it off and I would thank him another time. I knew that my husband had something up his sleeve, I just could not figure it out. I am usually pretty good about things like this and can pretty much figure things out if I just put my mind to it. But, not this time. I left work early because I had a doctors appointment and after I went to Walmart to get some groceries. When I was leaving Walmart, one of the guys that I work with stopped me and told me "Happy Anniversary". Now, this guy does not even work directly with me so I was thinking "What in the hell is going on that this guy knows that it is my anniversary and I did not tell a soul at work." So, I go on home.

My husband gets home from work about 5:30 and tells me that our dinner reservation is for 7:30 that evening. Everything goes fine. We go and eat. This is a new restaurant to me, I had never been there before but it is wonderful. We have a great time at dinner and then we go on home. It is about 9:30 and I tell everyone that I am going to bed, husband is on the computer doing something and tells me that he will be right in. I must have been really tired because the next thing I know it is 10:30 and I wake up to turn off the television, husband still not in bed. I am thinking "What the hell? Wow!! What a wonderful anniversary, I can't believe it, I am not taking off tomorrow, why? I am going into work. I don't know what the hell everyone was so secretive about, it was dinner...and we go out for dinner all the time...who cares".

OK, then it is 2:30 in the morning and my son (who no longer lives with me) walks into my bedroom and says "Happy Anniversary Mom" and puts a child into bed with me. I am half asleep and wondering why in the world he is putting his daughter into bed with me, and then I look down. There is no way I can describe the feeling that I had. Laying on me is my Kody, my wonderful Kody who moved to Wisconsin in November and I have not seen him since. I told my son to take him out in the other room so I can get dressed. I roll over to my husband, bawling like a baby, thank him over and over and go out into the living room to see my daughter and her son. I wish I could tell you how I feel, there are no words to describe it.

Finally I go back into the bedroom and crawl into bed and ask my husband the dreaded question, When do they have to leave? He turns to me and kisses me, tells me that they are not leaving, they are moving here to North Carolina. They are going to find an apartment with my other daughter and her son and they will all live together until they can afford their own places.

What a wonderful husband I have. They all have known for a month that this was going to happen and I never found out. Now he is wondering what can he do to top this anniversary present.....I just don't know that he can and better yet, I don't care.
