Observations on Growing Older
~Your kids are becoming you...and you do not like what they do...but your grandchildren are perfect!
~Going out is good.. Coming home is better!
~When people say you look "Great"... they add "for your age!"
~When you needed the discount, you paid full price. Now you get discounts on everything... movies, hotels, flights, but you're too tired to use them.
~You forget names ... but it's OK because other people forgot they even knew you!!!
~The 5 pounds you wanted to lose is now 15 and you have a better chance of losing your keys than the 15 pounds.
~You realize you're never going to be really good at anything .... especially golf.
~Your spouse is counting on you to remember things you don't remember.
~The things you used to care to do, you no longer care to do, but you really do care that you don't care to do them anymore.
~Your husband sleeps better on a lounge chair with the TV blaring than he does in bed. It's called his "pre-sleep".
~Remember when your mother said, "Wear clean underwear in case you GET in an accident"? Now you bring clean underwear in case you HAVE an accident!
~You used to say, "I hope my kids GET married... Now, "I hope they STAY married!"
~You tend to use more 4 letter words ... "what?"..."when?"... ???
~Now that you can afford expensive jewelry, it's not safe to wear it anywhere.
~You read 100 pages into a book before you realize you've read it.
~Notice everything they sell in stores is "sleeveless"?!!!
~What used to be freckles are now liver spots.
~You have 3 sizes of clothes in your closet ... 2 of which you will never wear.

Sunday I was watching Big Love and saw an actress whose name I couldn't remember. But I could remember that she was in a tv movie in the '70's called 'Earth 2' so I looked it up on IMDB and bingo... Mariette Hartley! Technology rockz! dianamite (Login dianamite01) Member
