Signs That I'm Old

Written July 11, 2009.

I have come to realize over the last year or two that I can no longer hide the fact that I am approaching oldness. The following habits or happenings are evidence that could be held against me.

1. I love to watch Wheel of Fortune every night at 6:30. We finish dinner and I turn on Channel 5 with excitement.

2. I usually have coffee after dinner. This is what my parents do.

3. I am always THRILLED to plan a trip to Branson (Branson? Really? Branson?), especially during the Christmas season.

4. I was telling my mom how much I like the new Ford Taurus, and as we were sitting together eating breakfast at a restaurant, I saw one pull up. "Look, there it is," I said to her. And an 80-year-old man got out of it.

5. And (one of the most embarrassing moments of my life I think) when we went to Splash Zone a couple weeks ago, I looked over and noticed that a 60-year-old woman had the exact same swimming suit as I did.

Oh, for shame. It is possible that I am no longer cool.

LOL Yikes on the swimsuit...that would be fun! ;) It's hell getting old, but you seem to be handling the whole aging thing with great aplomb...and I still think you're cool!!! =)

HA! #4 and #5 really cracked me up!

And if your blog address is any indication of your birth year, you and I are the same age, so what does that say about me? :)

You are only as old as you feel. And for what it is worth... I like the new Taurus too. I think it is pretty HOT!!!

What about hair coloring for grays instead of for a change of pace? I think that counts, too! I've been closely inspecting my roots out of curiosity... not that I know what my original color actually is... but I am looking to see if I have any gray hair - if I do, I think I will blame it on the stress of parenting or marriage or modern life, not age!!! :)
