Funny or Scary?

My mother called last night. As I have mentioned before, I don't really have much of a relationship with my mother but since it is Noah's birthday on Friday, she wanted to be sure that his present arrived. Since we were putting the kids to bed, I was thankfully able to cut it short. But before she hung up, I mentioned to her that we were going to go see my grandma this afternoon, but we were all fighting so much (it was just one of those days) that we figured we probably should save it for another day.

If you remember this post, it was about how amazing my grandmother is. She will be turning 92 in a few weeks.

My mother had just gotten off the phone with her and this was the conversation starter from my 92 year old grandmother...

"I just renewed my drivers license this morning. I won't have to renew it again until I'm 97!"

Ay-yi-yi

I don't know if I should congratulate or stay away from a certain Michigan burg... I will say that it is amazing how spry she is at 92!

Well, some people are pretty capable drivers at that age and others can't drive past 50!

Toni said...

Like Courtney, that scares me a little....

I hope I am still kickin' it when I am 92!

I love that she looks at it that way! I think most people would be so negative and say "Well this may be the last time I ever get to renew my driver's license." Longevity is in my family too, and then again so is the opposite!
