Growing Older::::

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 OKbecause other people forgotthey even knew you!!!

~The 5 pounds you wanted to loseis now 15 and you have a better chanceof losing your keys than the 15 pounds.

~You realize you're never goingto be really good at anything .... especially golf.

~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".

~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 workedwith just an "ON" and "OFF" switch..

~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 ...
"what?"..."when?"... ???

~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"?!!!

~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.

~~~~But old is good in some things:
old songs,
old movies,
And best of all, OLD FRIENDS!!

Thanks for the laugh. Also it seems that your entire body aches when you get up in the morning, but you didn't do anything while you slept???
