    I did find it wise to bring along a few games (not video) or books to keep my sons from being bored during parts of vacations. They should be interesting enough the kids will use them when it is boring (like when you need them to wait quietly), but not so interesting that they won’t look out at the scenery. I still remember our sons’ reaction when we drove through the Rocky Mountains. Pictures just don’t come close.

    True! I know a man who used his bow & arrow to kill a critter (think it was a possum) trying to climb in their chimney. It was after dark, and even though they live where it is legal to shoot guns, they didn’t want to scare the neighbors with the sounds of gunshots. (Most people in the country do target practicing in daylight hours.)

    My husband had a major heart attack after we’d done some “romancing”. Thankfully, the EMS got him to the hospital in time, so he survived.

    I’m usually the one wanting to stay at home, but that’s because there’s projects that need to be done, and we never have enough time (or energy) on a weekend to do them. My husband has been the one wanting a road trip.

    Although, now that he travels more for work, he’s not as eager to go as he used to be. I like the road trips more now that our kids are old enough to not go with us, because whenever they came along, it was always up to me to make sure they were taken care of. Right clothes, stuff to keep them occupied, etc. Now that it is usually just the two of us, I can just relax and enjoy the trip, for the most part.

    I’m glad he kept his pants up! As someone with weak muscles and bad knees, I have trouble standing up from a low toilet. We replaced all of our toilets that I use with taller ones. I didn’t try them out, but just bought the tallest model. But if they’d had a model sitting out where I could have tried sitting on it, I might just have done that too.

    I can’t keep a fern alive, either. I can only have something that will talk/bark/meow, etc. to remind me to take care of it.

    I have the same problem. Food just “jumps” in the grocery cart when my back is turned, whenever my husband is with me. I’ve noticed my sons (in their 20’s) are trying the same trick. Thankfully, after years of training when they were kids, the items they pick are easy to agree to.

    After following my ambulance in circles for hours, my husband declared that he had no interest in becoming an ambulance chasing lawyer. (I had to get transported to a trauma center in a major city from the rural hospital they took me to first, after my rollover car wreck.)

    How did she get an unemployment check? Did she get laid off from a job that I don’t remember?

    I knew I was getting old, when I realized my doctor(s) are younger than I am. I’ll really feel old when they’re the same age as my kids. My family doctor is a year older, now I wonder who will be my primary doc when he retires. (He’s been my doctor since he was a resident, about 30 years ago.) I’m not looking forward to training a new one on my unique medical issues.
