My youngest son was a "surprise" arriving 13 years after my oldest son and 10 years after my second son. Teacher was the youngest in her family as well being the same age difference from her oldest sister and her brother. She's always teased me about being her "young man" since she is 6 years older than me. I've not made the mistake of referring to her as a "cougar"! Well, during our separate visits to family over Thanksgiving, we discovered that her sister is older than my mother by about a year. We also realized, via text, that we were both huge topics of conversation with our respective families as we both had to answer questions posed by families and sometimes had to text each other for the answers.
She ended up staying late with her niece's family so didn't get home until late on Friday after turkey day. We met for coffee Saturday morning at the grand opening of a new coffee shop and had a nice time with tons of other people. We made plans to cook an evening meal together at her house later, but when it came time, I ended up grabbing some takeout and we ate that instead. She recently has acquired some mice and is in full on mouse trapper mode, so wasn't in the mood to cook.
An evening of watching the national dog show on television was simply thrilling...even if the dog she picked didn't win. But, I forgot to pick up ice cream, so we had to make our own "dessert" and let's just say that it was awesome, again, like always.
