~Going out is good..
Coming home is better!
~When people say you look "Great"...they add "for your age!"

~Your spouse is counting on youto 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 youdon't care to do them anymore.
~Your husband sleeps better on a lounge chairwith the TV blaring than he does in bed.It's called his "pre-sleep".

~When GOOGLE, ipod, email, modem ....
were unheard of, and a mouse was somethingthat made you climb on a table.
~You used to use more 4 letter words ...
~Now that you can affordexpensive 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"?!!!
