Observations on Growing Older

~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 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 miss the days when everything worked  with just an "ON" and "OFF" switch..

~When GOOGLE, ipod, email, modem ... were unheard of, and a mouse was something  that made you
  climb on a table.

~You used to use more 4 letter words ... "what?"..."when?"... ???

~Now that you can afford  expensive jewelry, it's not safe to wear it anywhere.

~Your husband has a night out with the guys, but he's home by 9:00 P.M. Next week it will be 8:30 P.M

~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.

~Everybody whispers.

~Now that your husband has retired .... you'd give anything if he'd find a job!

~You have 3 sizes of clothes in your closet ... 2 of which you will never wear.

TODAY  IS THE OLDEST YOU'VE EVER BEEN, YET THE YOUNGEST YOU'LL EVER BE,
SO ENJOY THIS DAY WHILE IT LASTS.
