Things are going well for us, though we've had discussions on whether we're insane to consider buying property & building a house at our age (30yr mortgage would put us in debt into our 80's) -- but there are issues with "my" house [size] and "his" house [needs gutted and re-done] that makes it worth doing.
Went to a funeral on Friday. Husband of one of my classmates passed and we drove up, even though I'd not seen or spoken w. her since graduation. There were seven of the women from our class and myself -- which was almost 25% of our graduating class (small school, just 35 people). Was nice to see them, though not the best situation.
