They spent their 43rd wedding anniversary knee deep in packing and fielding inquiries on Craigslist about five drawer dressers and sofa tables. Does anyone remember the Penny Saver? Well, my parents sure do and that's where they put an add to sell a bunch of stuff, but us young whipper snappers know that Craigslist is everything. My mom is learning, but not quite computer savvy enough for Craigslist so I posting their stuff and oh, my gosh is it crazy! I have to forward all e-mails to my mom and I've only seen a portion of the interaction she's getting, but she says keeping up with it is a part time job. They got two calls out of Penny Saver.
The Cottage in La Jolla for a double date. It looks like a house that's been turned into a restaurant and I've never had food come out so fast. I'm always on a quest for the best french toast in San Diego and this place takes the #1 spot away from DZ Akins. We've come a long way baby. My parents used to change my diapers and now we go out on double dates. They have been through a hell of a lot in their 43 years of marriage and yet here they are stronger than ever, sitting across from MJ and I who have barely just begun. It was one of those days that I stood there tilting my face into the sun and smiling, just because it felt so good to be where I was in that moment. My beautiful parents. My amazing husband. The weather. San Diego still has no clue that it's not Summer. Sitting outside in 75 degree temps chowing down on french toast and sipping on a mimosa with them was a really nice way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
This is the last Thanksgiving with my parents, and I don't even want to talk about Christmas. I'm grown and married. Why am I taking this so hard? Just thinking about it gets the tears rolling but, we're making the most of the time we have left.
