You know your getting old when.....

Lets have some fun with this. Lets see if we can really get some class participation. Here are the guidelines, Lets have each person come up with 3 things that you recall happening, thinking, seeing, or realizing, made you see, 'wow i'm getting old?!?. The catch, you can only post 1 event or comment at a time, and cannot post another one until 7 other people have posted one. And no repeats, you can 'AMEN' someone elses but come up with your own. That should give us 24 different 'you know your getting old when...' realizations, and when we get our 24 we can vote and come up with a top 10!!

I'll kick it off....
When Bri was in Michigan for some reason I just wanted to see the bed made, and I liked it. (it felt kinda weird making the bed) I stepped back and thought wow for 28 years I thought there was absolutely no point to making it, i'm going to mess it up anyways so what is the point. That is when I stepped back and said, 'huh, I must be getting old?!?' Not to mention a week later I discovered who really messes up the bed but, that is another topic.

Here Tyler wants to say hi,

jjjbmmmmvmmmb, bm nm nnn m n n nn nbnnb

as you can tell he types with his wrists on the table.

Any ways, Let's have fun with this.

Well when I realized that I was getting old was when I got married! People keep telling me that I'm a Old Married Lady.

I realized I'm getting old when I was in the car and said, "I'll come back there and spank if you don't stop"....oh my goodness I'm turning into my parents.

You'll know you're getting old when - You start planning your daily nap(s) at breakfast.
There's not really a bad nap time:) "That's another sign"

Every year around your birthday you get a nice letter from social security telling you how much you've made and what you can expect when you retire. I find i am getting closer and closer to my expected money.

you know your getting old when you here a song an you say I remember this song when I was little!

Mike & Brianna said...

so what was the song....

I'd like to give a hearty 'AMEN' to the planning your nap at lunch. For me getting some type of nap in the afternoon on sunday makes my day. Depending on the lineup for saturdays I try to plan those in, I thought that was good time management. Vacations also are a good source of naps (especially in Alabama).

I hear that, it is funny (haha) how our conversation changes and what we talk about. My favorite topic is the grocery list, talk about things that you take for granted growing up....Then having to pay for them your self, what is the world coming to. I think we are going to charge Tyler for food at about age 10 so that he doesn't go into schock of having to pay a full grocery bill, and cause I think he inherited his dad's stomach, and that isn't going to vote to well for the checkbook.

Hey Bri~thanks for the message...yeah when my sis was up last month for a visit we had gone shopping at Target, and the boy's saw those NBA sweat bands like the Pro's wear, and they just had to have them, so Leslie (my sister) had the idea of putting one of them on Carson to take a pic of it. It was really funny, cause he looked so serious the whole time...) So whats new with you guy's? I've just been busy cleaning out the basement closet...:( I'm making some progress I think...:) haha...anyway, Just wanted to pop by and say HELLO and that I MISS ya! Do you have instant messanger for Yahoo or MSN?
