We're just a couple of nerds who met at a tiny Catholic college in Virginia and eventually realized we were made for each other.
Graduation was followed by an annoying long-distance relationship and some dead-end retail jobs thanks to the economic downturn which greeted our class of newly-minted diplomas.
Married at last, we were immediately swept away on our ongoing adventure with the US Navy. And by immediately, I mean at 0500 the following morning. No honeymoon for us.
Unfortunately, this is where the master plan changed dramatically. Our dreams of a growing family were replaced by the reality of four miserable and ill-fated pregnancies.
In the meantime, we acquired a toy poodle as a kind of consolation prize. Lady Dulcinea Andromache (or "Andy") is quite the princess, but we love her to bits.
P.S. ~ Obviously things have changed now that little Miss Johanna has arrived on the scene, a testament to uterine surgery and progesterone therapy. I'm not keen on experiencing it all again, so the adoption saga might still happen.
