". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

That's it, I'm calling off school today. Phil just reminded me that he is having the pastors over to our house tomorrow for their annual all-day worship planning retreat. They were supposed to come a few weeks ago but ended up cancelling; Phil says he told me the rescheduled date, and I'm sure he did, but I have no memory of it. (Why does communication with one's spouse seem to get harder the longer you are married?) So now I need to clean the house and go to the grocery store. Then there's the piano practicing I need to do this morning so I can rehearse with the day school choir today for the concert I am accompanying tonight, not to mention the four piano students who are expecting lessons today. And I just want to sit around and blog.

1. You're both busier, so there's more that needs to be communicated just for run-of-the-mill keeping up.

2. Because you're both OLDER, and you both forget all sorts of things that you didn't when your brain was more efficient.

My husband did something recently for the first time in 34 years. He said, "Could you repeat that, I wasn't listening." Wow!! What a confession to make! I repeated the request and he heard it and then he did it. Maybe you just have to wait until 34 years of marriage : )
