It Finally Happened

Mark and I are now officially an "old married couple"

As we drove home, I thought about some events that had occurred tonight, that at the time I didn't think twice about. But in the quietness of the drive home, it came to me...

We ate dinner before 6:00 p.m.
We sat in the car and waited on each other to come out our respective stores
(me: Michaels, him: Lowe's)
When we did go into a store together,
at some point he actually carried my purse for me.
And then he found a bench to sit on as he waited.
We listened to a high school football game on the radio,
instead of music. We got home before 9:30 p.m.
And I immediately changed into the pink duster.

When did this happen? When did we become our parents?
Where was I when this happened? Where was Mark?
What happened to that late-nighting, corvette-driving, skinny-jeans wearing, cute couple?

When did they turn into that early-eating, mini-van driving, plus-size jean wearing, not-as-cute-as-they-used-to-be couple with three teenagers?


oh well, it was fun while it lasted...

Mike said "WOW".....Oh no, we are this couple too, my man's black mustache has been replaced by a course salt and pepper mustache and I have gained a "middle section" that I didn't have 20+ years ago....BUT that said, I wouldn't trade the security that I have now for the world....loved, loved, loved this post! Detest this silly word verification that we have to do in order to post a comment (I usually get it wrong)

well, I guess that Joe & I haven't reached that stage in our lives yet, we went out to dinner at 5:30 and then to the movie (FIREPROOF)at 7 pm, which by the way was amazing!, and then to a quaint little coffee shop until about 10. Wow, we had an awesome date night...but even though you did things like your parents, I know that you had a very lovely evening with your husband and no children....did I mention, no children? Love ya Deb...you always make me smile...Keep it up!
