Happy 7th Anniversary...

UrbanMummy,

It's been 7 years to the day that we've been married and 8 years to the day that we met. I knew the moment I saw you that I wanted - needed - to know more about and that one day I would marry you. I also made you a promise that I have yet to fulfil. I promised you that by November of the year we met - 2000 - that I would have a job that I loved and that I was proud of. I have let us down. You sense my misery and I know that you want it for me like I want it myself. It's only a matter of time that someone will overlook my current employer and take a gamble on a hard-working MBA / level 3 CGA or need some consulting http://nowconsulting.blogspot.com and that big stress will be removed from both of us.

I realized over this weekend that there are times that I feel like a hamster on a wheel and the more I think about what is important in my life, I realize that after you and the kids (and some very immediate family) I have nothing else. I feel like I've been goofing around, taking tasks lightly and taking way too long to get things done. I dislike my disorganization and am going to do something about it, starting today. I know what I have to do, for me, for you and for our family and these are tasks long overdue. I will complete them!

We have some big changes to the family coming and we need to be settled before all of it happens. Slowly but surely we are getting the inside and the outside of the house organized, but we also need to get the rest of our priorities straight so we are working together not on our own.

Let's make this year the best one yet.

I love you.

You husband,

UrbanDaddy
