Glad to be back!

Reasons I Know I'm Getting Older

  1. Daughter number two is college hunting.
  2. I prefer having short fingernails.
  3. I look forward to the days when I can wear sensible shoes. (Don't even ask how sad I was when I realized this was true.)
  4. Today's shopping trip with my girlfriends included stopping by Sam's to buy laundry supplies, dish detergent, and trash bags.
  5. I have big plans for Thanksgiving break that include decluttering and painting a room.
  6. Recently, a friend of my parents passed away. One of my first thoughts was, "but 70 is too young!"
  7. My youngest child is in double digits.
  8. I spent most of last week crashing into bed by 10:00. Two of those nights, I was in bed by 9:00.
  9. I prefer talking on the phone to text messaging.
  10. I still don't think that leggings = pants or that tights = leggings.

At least you haven't started wearing "house dresses" yet.

Very true! However, I was longing for a flannel nightgown a couple of weeks ago. :-)

2,3,5,8,and 9, by your reasoning, would mean that I've been old for a long time. Ha.
