Thanksgiving Travels

Not a Grampy and I will be spending Thanksgiving this year in Washington State. It will be a short trip, we arrive there Wednesday afternoon and have to leave bright and early Monday morning. Yes, we will be flying...and it will be a 12 hour flight (including a 2 hour layover in Seattle).

While we are there we will be celebrating my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary.

50 years. Can you imagine living with someone for 50 years?? I have been married to Not A Grampy for 20 years and sometimes I feel that has been forever. On our anniversary this year I realized something, I have lived with Not A Grampy longer than I have lived with anyone else (except my children), including my parents.

I am just trying to imagine what life with Not A Grampy will be like after 50 years of marriage.

  • The year will be 2037
  • We will be 77 years old (shit that's old)
  • I will probably need my boobs done again (the warranty is only for 20 years)
  • I will probably be a great grandmother (shit that sounds even older)
  • I will be driving along the roads, making right hand turns from the left lane
  • Not A Grampy will have finished redoing the kitchen cabinets.
  • I will have painted my bedroom (we have lived here 10 years and I still don't know what I want to do in there, well besides that)
Okay, enough of that. I am very pleased my parents have made this landmark. I wonder if they ever thought that they would make it?

If it makes you feel any better we've been in our house 24 years and our bedroom is STILL white because I don't know what to do with it, either. Well, actually, I do know, but Michaelangelo isn't doing much painting anymore...

Much luck & love for you & Not A Grampy that you do make it that long...;-) I just got an phone call from a guy I met ONE WEEKEND at a high school wrestling match - he was a wrestler, I was a cheerleader. Haven't heard from him in 29 sad is it that THAT'S my record? LOL.
