|The Happy Couple (look for this photo on next year's Christmas card)|
So this is what its like to be happily married? I love it! Bill is pretty happy too.
I didn't think too much about how we would feel after the big buildup (49 years after all) and the last two months (testifying before the Delaware state house in support of marriage equality) but I was sort of expecting a slight letdown at least. Didn't happen. We're still high on happiness!

This morning I was talking to a dear blogger friend on FaceTime and he asked me if I felt different (I think that's what he asked me). The answer is "Yes, I do feel different. I feel complete. Its hard to describe but I feel just right. Maybe this is how it feels not to be marginalized or discounted as a human being or a citizen of this country just because of who I love. I'm here to tell you this feels damn good.
So what have we done since the Big Day? Well, as you know life does go on. We've been suffering through a high humidity heat wave here in southern Delaware for the past week or so. The heat and humidity bears down on us then it rains then the heat and humidity returns. We just slog our way through it and try not to spend too much time outside. If we do, then when we come back into the house we have to peel off our sweat soaked clothes and take a shower.
Yesterday morning we had a near disaster. Our air conditioning started to run erratically. OMG! NOT NOW! I had visions of calling the local air conditioning repair guys and being told they could get out here until next week. In the mean time Bill and I would have to hunker down in the basement like survivors of an atomic bomb attack until relief arrived.

Yesterday morning I also had to go to downtown Rehoboth to retrieve our wedding pictures from Ann of Old Time Photo (she took our wedding photos which are pictured in this posting because Mark H. wasn't available). So here we were yesterday, fighting the lava flow that is called Route 1 traffic into Rehoboth on Fourth of July weekend and trying to arrange for a service company to come out and repair our air conditioner.

I called my boss at work because his air conditioner recently went out too. I asked him what company he called. He told me it was a company called Service Today. Oh sure, I thought. But I have a high respect for my boss's recommendations so I called. Guess what? When we returned from Rehoboth, which was a NIGHTMARE or DAYMARE (not only was the traffic heavy we had to wait for the drawbridge out of Rehoboth to close!) the Service Repair truck was in our driveway!

So what are we doing this weekend? Just trying to stay cool folks, and now that is possible thanks to Service Today. Sometimes things just work out right.
