A Woman's Observations on Maturing .....(not marinating).
It's harder to tell navy from black.
Your kids are becoming you...and you don't like them! ...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 had to pay full price. . ...Now you get discounts on everything...movies...hotels..
You forget names...but it's OK because other people forgot they even knew you.
You ask your husband or friend how your outfit looks and they tell you the truth.
The five 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 husband is counting on you to remember things you don't remember.
Your husband sleeps better on a lounge chair with the TV blaring then he does in bed. It's called his "pre-sleep."
You used to say, "I hope my kids GET married. Now, "I hope they STAY married!"
Who wants to wear 3" heels anyway?
You miss the days when everything worked with just an "ON" and "OFF" switch.
You 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.
Many of the people in People Magazine you've never heard of.
You have 3 sizes of clothes in your closet....2 of which you will never wear.
But old is good in some things:...old songs...old movies...best of all: OLD FRIENDS.
Thanks for being one of mine!
It is that time of my life when I am very aware that I am not a "spring chicken" any longer but am grateful that I have Spark People and Fitness in my life on a daily basis. Being Fit is the best anti-aging weapon we have and each day I spend getting fit adds days to my life and right now for me - LIFE IS GOOD!
