5 and 13.1 More Than Just Numbers

As you begin reading you are probably thinking to yourself, "About time."  We know that since Easter we have not blogged at all.  We apologize for the lack of entertainment and information you have received from us.

Some of you know that this is Birthday/Anniversary month here in our home.  Meaning we are celebrating Meredith's birthday (though one never reveals the age of a woman) and we are celebrating five years for Marriage.  Its hard to believe that five years has gone by so fast.  Well not quite five years because its not officially 5 until the 19th.  When you look at the supposed gift giving protocol for 5 years you don't really get excited though.  I believe its wood, BLAH!  I thought for awhile I was going to have a good friend of ours over at Onyx Feather make Meredith a custom piece of jewelry.  The more I thought about it the more I realized vintage jewelry really isn't my wife's thing.  

I also realized that there isn't much made of wood that I can afford right now or that Meredith wants.  So what do I get her?  Well thats where the second number in the Blog title comes into play.  I have decided that for Meredith I am promising to train and run a half-marathon.  This is a big goal for me as I have never run more than 4 miles at a single time in my life.  We haven't chosen one yet but I am considering three.  The St. Louis Rock'n Roll, The Disney Half, and the St. Petersburg, FL Rock'n Roll.  Wish me luck thats our news for now.
Who had have thought she would stick around for 5.
