What you think when you are 104

Good morning everyone. I have to bring my ring to the jeweler to get re-sized today, and I am not real happy about it. It's a little too big, but I have grown somewhat attached to it in our short time together, and I will miss it a whole lot while it's gone! Hopefully it doesn't take them too long.

Friday night was one of the best dates I have ever had:-) Nothing really shocking there...I was just very happy. We had a great, low-key dinner at my favorite restaurant, and then Big Sis had an impromptu party for us. Nothing huge...but his parents came in town, and some friends dropped by, as well as all of the usual suspects in my life:-)

I spent a lot of the weekend on the phone, which I guess is not surprising. I had a lot of friends and family to check in with, which was nice. I talked to Tinkerbelle for a while, which was very nice...she is such a sweetie:-) I have gotten a little bad about staying in touch with people over the last couple months, so it was a good excuse to call some folks and check in.

We went over to visit his great-Grandmother for a bit (and his Grandmother, too), and they were both really cute and excited. His great-Grandmother said "I hope I am still alive when you get married," which is sort of morbid and kind of depressing, but it is also sort of endearing. I guess when you are 104, you come to terms with your own mortality...

Smoking Hot Roommate took Munchkin out yesterday to watch football, which gave The Boy and I a chance to lounge around all afternoon. Truth be told, I don't think we had fully christened the new apartment since we moved back in. Well, no problem there anymore:-D

So who else has to work today? I do. I would much rather be at home under a blanket (it is like 4 degrees outside or something). The good news...Florida next weekend!!!

Kinda creepy, yes... but at 104, I imagine every new day is an adventure in itself!
