10 years ago...

I got to thinking today about our anniversary coming up on Thursday. Cory and I will have been married for 10 years - an entire decade! So since the #10 is a pretty big and significant number I got to thinking what other kinds of numbers we've accumulated over the 10 years. Here are a few of the ones I came up with:
  • 18 - the number of church callings we've had (10 for Joanna, 8 for Cory)
  • 2 - dogs (Daisy & Sadie)
  • 2 - little boys (Gabe & Hunter)
  • 7 - # of years we were married without kids
  • 3 - # of years we have had kids
  • 2 - number of ranger's we've had
  • 8 - nieces (6) & nephews (2) born since we were married (Logan, Lexie, Lincoln, Allison, Linzy, Taylor, Lucy, Genevieve)
  • 4 - people who have married into our families since we were married (Spencer, Laura, Kori, Nicole)
  • 3 - # of brothers who served missions after we got married (Jed - Russia, Chase - California, Paul - Norway)
  • 4 - beds (1 queen, and 3 king)
  • 8 - # of apartments (nasty basement apartment in Rexburg, Cottonwood, Porters, Cottonwood, Cedar City twin home, Cleveland, Spanish Fork 4-plex, Detroit)
  • 2 - # of houses (Rexburg, Cedar)
  • 6 - # of states (ID, UT, OH, CA, UT, MI, IL, ID, UT - though Joanna didn't live in CA or IL when Cory did for short times)
  • 32 - # of jobs (14 for Joanna - early morning janitorial @ Ricks College, Walmart cashier, Porter's cashier, Porter's Accounts Payable, Preston's Office Plus, telemarketing, personal scrapbooker, Memory Lane, Alliance Marketing - office manager for summer office, Kopp design, Porter's scrapbook displays, Porter's Accounts Receivable, The Scrap Coop Marketing Director, The Blind Guy office manager. 18 - Cory - Porter's manager, Porter's Office City, WMA, Primerica, Preston's Office Plus, Brianhead ski instructor, telemarketing, Winder Dairy, Eclipse Marketing - summer sales, Macey's stocking, selling vacuums, Sundance ski instructor, World's Gym sales, Alliance Marketing - summer sales office manager, Porter's Office Plus, American Family insurance agent, house framing, The Blind Guy - business owner)
