afaik Shazam is the Wife in that relationship ;-)
but yes, when the amount of pre-booked time raises, spontanity goes out of the door and you have to fight for it...
You've gotta fight... for the right... to... [hang on, dear, I'm trying to make a statement]
you have kids. so your whole brain got re-wired around external responsibilities. excessive introspection is for angsty teenagers and the self-indulgent.
I know. I occasionally wonder I went to.
As you go through different phases of life, your needs change. At least that's what I've been told. I'm still waiting to see.
[ obligatory comment about my sister, who likes to "party like it's 1999" (which is to say, she's turning 40 this year but still acts like she's 25) ]
like 100 for two days.
"There is a time and a place for everything children and it is called college."
I've never been much of a partier, and I can honestly say that with the exception of my health issues, I'm pretty much where I wanted to be when I was 35...
I mean, I thought I'd marry and have kids younger, but I have a man I love, wonderful kids, and we've finally bought our first home... a nice garden apartment, and it should be fixed up in 3 weeks or so so that we can move in...
Oh, I didn't imagine the dog. But I like him anyway.
I don't remember if I ever imagined 35, but I suppose I'm also where I wanted to be in life.
It's time to imagine 15 years into the future.
Where will we be, and what will we be doing at the time?
I imagine I'll be a grandparent in about 10 years, and that I will have learned to play a musicl instrument, and will have sold our house and moved into something smaller. I also imagine myself a teacher for brides for the commandments involved in being married. And maybe I'll live in Ohio.
Seems to me that when I turned 42, I should have automagically received the answer to the ultimate question of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
Instead, all I got was this dingy towel....
I partied like I was 40 when I was 25.
That sounds like me as well :)
Even when I was 20 or so I looked forward to getting as quickly as possible to the point where I was a homeowner hosting dinner parties.

too many of them
Some children can be annoying, but I don't generally take an instant dislike to most of them.
But I have met some exceptions. One little girl seemed to be groomed for a life of a slut (she wasn't even in her teens when I met her), which didn't do much to make me like her as she kept trying, with intention, to prevent me from going whereever I wanted to go (and it wasn't with playful intentions).
I would have enjoyed feeding her own eyes to her.
I know what you mean - most kids who come to the house are totally fine, but there's one little girl who I absolutely cannot stand. And she asks to come over like 2-3 time a week... I mostly just say no.
Int'l) is nice, though a little crowded. Apparently, there is
renovation going on and there should be a new, bigger facility soon.
The one in San Antonio was basically a few couches and a bookshelf (at
least it was in 2005), but quite welcome for all of that.
Denver had a brand new one that was quite swanky with leather furniture
and a big screen television and various computers and video games and
toys for the kids and whatnot when I was last through there in 2006.
Just another five hours to kill...
Gotta make sure I read those acronyms correctlyy... a USO and a UFO are significantly different.
