    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 husband 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. 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.

      This made me laugh. I just pushed my husband upstairs to our bed because he was sleeping on the couch watching TV. Seriously? If you're that tired, go to bed.
