Seven

The other night Micah and I put the boys to bed early. Then we sat down on the couch and pulled out a crossword puzzle, just like we used to do in the pre-kid days. It’s been years since we’ve done a crossword together. We used to do them all the time when we were dating and engaged and before Manchild was born. But such quiet, mentally intensive pursuits have taken a back seat to more relaxing, more passive time-killers when we have a few minutes of unscheduled, post-bedtime quiet. Still, it only took a few minutes for us to get back into our normal groove. Micah knew all the ones I didn’t have a clue about, I filled in the ones I knew before he had a chance to look at them. We puzzled over the last few together before filling in our best guesses and high-fiving a job well done.

Today marks seven years of filling in the blanks for each other as a married couple. Here’s to seventy more.

  4. Congratulations!!! 7 years is an accomplishment, even more of an accomplishment than finishing a crossword puzzle–though I think that is noteworthy as well! Anyway, happy day to you guys! You are awesome!

    It’s a shame that crossword has been pretty much the only one we’ve been able to finish . . . But at least we can take comfort in our other accomplishments!
