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. 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.”
