Time flies – Later today we will be attending the beloved husband’s class reunion. As you age, the celebration changes. This year it is a luncheon so all of us old biddies can drive home in the light. I remember when it was a dinner dance in the evening. I’m actually glad that it’s during the day. The location is about an hour’s drive. Too long after a night of partying. It’s also casual so I don’t need a prom dress. This is age appropriate.
Speaking of age appropriate – remember when it was the other way around? You wanted to match the activity to the child’s level. It turns out that we do that all throughout our life. We may still party but it’s earlier, with less booze and a lot less dancing (metal hips, canes, walkers – it gets dangerous!)
What was I thinking? – I am finishing what is hopefully the end of the painting (except for the kitchen renovation). I have the bathrooms to paint. You think they are small and it’s easy peasy but it’s the opposite. The quarters are tight to move ladders around and there is so much to tape and cut in. Give me a nice big room anytime over a bath. I should have had the entire house painted before we moved in BY SOMEONE ELSE! I sure won’t do this again. I forgot I’m old.
What? Again? – I received a message from an old friend looking for contact information for another old friend. (By old I mean both age and tenure.) He wanted to relay the death of another friend (also old). This is the second death in a week for me. My mom always said “what two’s it, three’s it” so I’m waiting for another death to occur. Sure hope it’s not me.
It’s delightful! — We are in a stretch of wonderful weather (insert Snoopy Dance here!). End of summer/fall is usually great because the ground is still warm (from our overheated summer!). It doesn’t get uncomfortably cold, at least not yet. I’m hoping for a long, long shoulder season before we get out the snowsuits.
So how was your week?
