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.

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.
WRONG! I can prove it!

Your husband is counting on you

to remember things you don't remember..

The things you cared to do,

you don't care to do,

but you 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

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 use more 4 letter words ...

"what?"..."when?" etc. ???

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.
