This next week is special-Aidan is turning 10! Yesterday, Sam signed Jackson up for kindergarten. In a couple of months, Steve and I will be off celebrating anniversary #37. Seems as if we were just getting started and figuring out this thing called "marriage".
Yet here we are, empty-nesters with 4 grand kids and muddling along at the beginnings of our "golden years".
There are days when I definitely feel as if I'm more than a senior citizen. Others, not so much. Things have changed throughout the years, especially this last one. I don't see me ever dancing the night away again. Last effort was at Steve's company party and I realized my feet were made of not just clay but cement.
Today, we went and did a bit of a Costco run. We no longer need to store up on foods to feed teenagers and day care kids though. Our bill today? Filled with the joys of being old: generic miralax, q-tips, high fiber bread (which went immediately into the freezer), eye drops (my dry eyes) and the much needed "anniversary" gift to ourselves-a food saver machine and a box of bags.
Almost embarrassing, no?
It's okay. At least we're here to moan about all of these pesky things.
