“Getting old isn’t for sissies, but it beats the alternative.”
Betty Gene Lamison
“Go play on the freeway, kid”
John Lamison, Betty Gene’s husband (to my brother and me)
**Update Easter 2015- Betty Gene passed away yesterday, on my daughter’s 18th birthday, at about 5:30 in the evening. Rest in peace, Gramma.**
Sometimes picking a New Thing O’ The Day is easy, simple and fun. A new restaurant? Love it. Act like a tourist in a new-to-me spot? Bring it on.
I took a little trip on Thursday and Friday, to see my grandparents. Every time I have stayed in a hotel, I’ve always had my mom, one of my kids, or almost always my husband along with me… for like, the last 30 years– that’s a long time!
Thursday evening, after singing along with my brother’s keyboard extravaganza playlist in my grandparents’ living room, I checked into the hotel. By myself.
I’m hoping to make the three hour trip out to see her again, very soon.
