Ohmygosh...I'm Getting Old!

I know, I know...it is a fact of life. People get old. We have to mature (otherwise the "cute" things we did when we were young just become obnoxious.) Though, I do figure I have another good many years ahead of me before I truly have to grow up...I figure once I hit 50, I will begin taking responsibility for my actions and learning to plan ahead!

But back to the real reason I am feeling old...

Lately while watching tv, I feel like I keep hearing cuss words. Since when is it okay to cuss on tv? I thought that was illegal or something. Problem is, I have been watching tv shows that are like 5-10 years old. That got me thinking...

TV hasn't changed...I have.

Oh crap! What happened to me?!? I've gotten older. I've had a child. Part of this causes me to notice cussing more than I used to. I guess one can say it is part of growing up (aka: getting older). It really is one of the may ways I realize I have gotten older.

No longer is it "cool" for me to walk around with my bra straps showing (partly because I wear a nursing bra and partly because in hindsight I am not sure if that ever was truly "cool"). Or my stomach for that matter...and that happened before it was ruined thru the miracle of life.

I don't drive as fast as I used to...party because I don't want to hurt myself or others and partly because I don't want my insurance to go up.

I can't go on...all this old stuff is depressing me...maybe it is because my birthday is next week. Maybe it is because I really am oh-so-old. Whatever it is, there is no denying

I am growing up

  1. Sooo....Jess, how old will you be on your b'day? Yes we remember. It is on our calendar and it reminds us every year. We pray for you at least once a year.

    Next month will be the big 70 for me! None of the others have caused me to blink. But this one...is kind of unbelievable. I have decided to embrace it and continue to enjoy life.

    Have a happy bithday and enjoy your youth and the wisdom you have gained along the way! I don't see you older so much as a bit wiser. Some get old but not a bit wiser. They tend to not live to be really, really old.
