Golden Years

I had a discussion with my mother-in-law this morning. She was complaining about her husband.

First of all, she's 77 years old.

Second of all, she's 77 years old.

Third of all, she's 77 freakin' years old!

She was complaining that her husband doesn't turn her on anymore.

"He doesn't even try," she said. "He doesn't kiss me or anything anymore."

But the real killer for me was when she said, "there's not any necking either."


For some reason I had hoped necking might be a non-issue by the time I reached those golden years.

This cracked me up. Eww Necking at 77, lol. I simply can't imagine it. And really don't want to.

I think at that age I just want to be sitting on the porch with my iced tea and a book with no necking involved.

This makes me laugh, because I totally have these types of discussions with my mother-in-law. She is younger than 77 though. During these discussions we have also covered the topics of her parents who still have an active life in the bedroom (And I'm not talking about reading books) She is ok with that and so am I. I doubt that I will ever want the intimate side our my relationship with my husband to come to a complete standstill. I hope that there is always effort put forth by both of us.

Sadly this sounds like me at 38. Ohh, to be 77 and complaining about that. Lucky lady.

The way the hubby is now, I figured I'd still have to be beating him away with my cane when I'm in my 70's. There is this little old couple who walk around town all the time and they hold hands. It is so cute.

I hope I am necking and whatever else when I am 102! Seriously. I hope we are still just as affectionate and in love as we are now.. or more.

Holy crap, if my MIL had a conversation like that with me, my ears would catch on fire I'm sure!!

It's funny though, my mom is in her 70's and dating...and my nieces tease her about making out with the guys!
