On deck for tomorrow: 14 things I am better at now that I am a for-real grown up. I’ve been challenged by The Practical Dilettante, when she called me on my age-related kvetching yesterday. I have to think about that one for a few hours, though.

I did a little catching up with my sister-in-law today. She and her husband just celebrated their 22nd wedding anniversary. To celebrate, they went out to dinner, all alone, for “the first time in years.” I had to ask — did you run out of things to talk about? The best answer ever — No, we had a really big fight the night before, so there was plenty to discuss.

I love the give and take of marriage, the constant renewal of love. Fights are a part of that, too, even 22 years later.
