Today is Easter Sunday. Today is also our 40th Wedding Anniversary.
The sheer length of forty years is mind boggling to me. Not really sure how that time has passed. I know some of the time seems to have gone in warped speed. The short time from when my daughters were born - to taking them to kindergarten - to packing them off to college ~ flew by! Balanced then by the interminable days of waking, getting them up, fed, to school, myself to work, shopping, home, laundry, cooking dinner, cleaning, organizing, planning, bed routine, waking, getting everyone up, dressed out ...etc. Ad Nauseum.
Back then, when you heard that someone was 40 years old, you thought, Oh man, they're really old! And if someone was working in the same job for 40 years, OMG..how boring that must be. And 40 years married, well, they were old grandparents. How do they stand it!?
Now Pyne and I are here ~ together - still. Same house, the one we bought, and he moved into 2 months before our wedding, and I came home to from our Honeymoon. The house we said was a good starter house. Better to buy, than rent, knowing we'd be moving out, going places.
And today I find myself in my starter house, with my starter husband, with lots of usage and old age showing on all of us. Wondering Where, and How, forty years has gone?
