not getting tired of my writing about our upcoming nuptials. After all, it's not every day that a, shall we say, "mature" couple ties the knot.
The other night when I went to bed, I lay there with a nervous stomach! I was thinking about our big day and all the preparations we've done in the last few months and I thought, "Wow! It's finally happening! Please Lord don't let anything happen to jinx this!" I had the weirdest butterflies and actually started to shake a bit.
It has been a long journey for us with ups and downs and twists and turns. We could have been married back in the early 70's and now be celebrating over 40 years of marriage. But apparently there was another plan for us. No point in looking back. We need to keep our eyes on the path ahead of us and make every day count.
I heard something amusing, but sweet, the other day about my mother's best friend who is now 95 years young! She has a 90-year-old beau. Well, if that news didn't make me feel young, I don't know what possibly could have. I guess the saying is true - "Just because there's snow on the roof doesn't mean there's no fire in the furnace."
So yes I'm nervous about the big day being a great day! But I am not nervous about having made the right decision about getting married to Lorne. This is going to be the wedding that should have been and we will make it wonderful.
Can you guess my colour scheme? Also, don't forget to give thanks to the noteworthy Mrs. Nesbitt, the creator of ABC Wednesday, and to our noble administrator Roger.

- I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.
