Our move to Raleigh has resulted in a ton of great things for us, like living in the same city as my brother and his family instead of being 6 hours away, getting to put our stamp on our brand new home, and new work opportunities for my husband. Â We are also meeting fun new people and being social, like the double date we had a few weekends ago with another couple.
As we got to know each other over Thai, our new friends asked us how long we had been together. When I replied that it will be 28 years in December one partner looked at the other one and said, “That’s as long as you’ve been alive!”
I felt a little better at my doctor’s appointment the next day. After examining me my new eye doctor announced that even though I’m 44, I have the eyes of a 41-year old.
“That’s great!” I said.
“Yes,” he replied. “But that means they’re gonna go downhill really quickly.”
