Live the moment.

To document:

    Relive the time you dated. How you got together. The decisions you made together. The first car, apartment, ...

For right now:

Ask your wife. She will know what is important.

Talk about what is going to happen. Kids and parents.

I bought a new car this year. To my surprise there was a bluetooth system build in.
Took me a few weeks to find a new bluetooth phone and 5 minutes to get it working.

Perfect. The radio switches to stand-by and I have to press one button to pick up the call.

The phone is now constantly with bluetooth 'on'.
Maybe I should not do that, but I'm living in a rural area.

Nothing in progression can rest on its original plan. We may as well think of rocking a grown man in the cradle of an infant. -- Edmund Burke
