Anniversary Gift - Check TO IRS

   12 years ago my sweet DH asked me to marry him. Not because he loved me b/c he said no piece of paper could change that. Not because my mom wanted him to do so before she died and it was thought she wouldn't come out of the hospital that time.  But because he wanted me to be financially secure in my old age and only way he could insure that was to marry me. How's that for a proposal!
   So I said yes providing we got married on April 15th. It is one day he can't forget! LOL Since that year, our anniversary gift to each other is to write the check to the IRS...sometimes small but most often larger than we would like and last year larger than we could afford at that time of year. This year we made our yearly trip to the accountant to have her tell us we don't have enough deductions but we all decided that it was a good thing since our major bills are paid and we are healthy so I guess paying the government a bit of extra money isn't so bad after all.
   Instead of my getting a diamond ring (which I really didn't want or need), IRS got a substantial check. But we still have enough to gas up the motor home, pack up the dogs, and head for Ms. for the GSQA meeting tomorrow. God is good to us and provides us with what we need when we need it. If fact He provides enough for us to share with our children and grandchildren when they need. Can't ask for better than that!
Lator Gators! We are off to celebrate our time together. 
May the fabric you desire appear in your stash. Keep 2011 STRESS FREE!


  1. Happy Anniversary! How smart to select a date that you hubby couldn't forget. Ours is Flag Day so mine has a reminder too. Safe travels! I have been reading and seeing horrible reports of storms and tornadoes in your part of the country.

  2. Happy anniversary! mine will be 11 years in May.
