I ran out of pennies for the fountain of youth. My pockets are bare, my wallet is full of receipts only... while stuck in traffic today I realized I am well into this game of Chess (I will always remember that conversation Amy Marie...)... Perhaps the reason I don't feel so sexy and young is because my daily routines are just that... routines... nothing new... nothing exciting... I have adapted...
Proof I am aging to 'old'-
My now social life revolves around CSI every week
I wear socks to bed now
I didn't know what an 'Alien urine sample' was till last week
I have found myself chewing Tums several times a day
I now understand the practicality of the mini van
I am limited to drinking caffeine only before 4pm
The number of people who recognize my 'Sublime' and 'Reel Big Fish' ring tones are few to none
We only go out to dinner with coupons and/or when drinks and appetizers are half off.
I am counting calories
I leave the house with sufficient time to get to my destination
I am obsessed with HGTV
I play the game of seeing how many days I can go before busting out the razor
I do all my laundry (even the bed sheets) on a weekly basis
I buy cards to send to my friends and family for every holiday
I am terrified of new drivers
I found myself counting my brown spots (too much sun!) the other morning
I actually ironed clothes for a wedding two weeks ago
I have no qualms about waking up before 6am anymore
I read the TV Guide
I carry around a toilet seat cover in my purse
---shakes head, stares at the floor and shuffles back to bed...
