Re: How long do you want live? 80, 90, 100?

Both of my grandmothers lived past 95 so I'm going for 100.  At 67 I've had 2 total knee replacements, and just retired from teaching.  I walk regularly, exercise at least 3 times a week, and enjoy yoga.  I have 4 kids and 8 grandkids and have been happily married for 47 years to my grade school sweetheart.  I would say I have been, and continue to be blessed with each new day.  If God calls me home before I'm 100 it's because my grandmas don't want me to break their record and want me to enjoy an even fuller life with them!

I hope to make it to 82, when my house will finally be paid off!  After that, it'll be a fight against Alzheimer's ... it's in the family Smiley Sad   So, I have to make the most of the next 15 years, if I make it THAT long!!

I agree. I am 62, and I feel 25. Can't imagine checking out for many many years to come.

Long enough to see how my 5 grandchildren's lives turn out. They range from 13 down to 5 months. I am not leaving this world until I see how their stories turn out. I am 62 now..so atleast 100.

Good for you to have the desire to live to 100! Most of us have the "usual" (pains, various problems) if over 70, but we try to find the joy in everyday living. You are doing great. And 75 is the new 60. Haven't you heard?

Yes. You do want to be around to be involved in many things like this. Think about the good stuff that is still with you. Sometimes it takes a lot, but try to find a little bit of joy in every day. Try to get a laugh every day (or at least a smile).

I get what you are saying. But still, unless there are some awful things you are dealing with, you really would like to have a long life....right?
