Old is Just a Number...

The other day, I was invited to join a facebook group.

Was it for fabulous singles? Uh, no...more like my 20 year high school reunion planning.

I still have one year and 6 months until it has been 20 years. I would've appreciated the extra time to let it sink in.

It always amazes me when I see my friends or classmates having been married 10, or 15 years, some of them with scores of children. Some of those children...are...um, able to like, operate motor vehicles, or have graduated high school, and in some cases...have had children.

People my age should NOT be grandparents!

My Mom always likes to say that when she looks in the mirror she wonders who that old lady is staring back at her. Until recently I didn't "get it".

Sigh...Yes...I'm getting laugh lines. I can see the crows feet trying to sneak their way in! And..when I get up in the morning, there are creases in my face that don't go away before I leave for work. (I need to try this satan pillowcase thing that I read about online....)

I am getting to the point where I really "get" that age is really just a number! I still feel 21!! It is so hard to accept the physical aging process, when your mind still thinks it is so young.

I will attend this 20 year reunion (in over a year) feeling on top of the world! I can't say that I feel in any way that I am missing out on anything because I don't have a "family".

Everyone has their own course to follow in life, and I am embracing each step along the course that is my life!

20 years? Pshhh. I got this!

I just watched this movie, Liberal Arts, 1) I loved it; and 2) one of my favorite lines in it was from a retiring professor that said "nobody ever FEELS old, that's one of life's dirty little secrets."

perfection :)

It's scary when you're friends have grandkids, isn't it?!
