Getting old

Three things that have happened recently that have made me realize I am getting old......

We sell books online. Sometimes I have to key in the publishing date. I keyed in 1992. I thought that book is not that old, I graduated in 1991. Then it hits me... that books is 21 years old... It is an old book.

When you see on facebook that a friend who graduated a year behind you is retiring from a 20 year military career. Yep....retiring. WOW, I am old!

Lastly,,,,your ten year old nephew whom it seems like just came into our lives last year is learning about puberty and heading into it....what! He is supposed to be a baby forever and never grow up. :(

Soon I will be saying....back in the olden days or when I was your age I had to walk 3 miles to school up and back in the snow up a hill.....Life goes on.

Thing is even when we realize we are old, we don't really feel that way.

Well, when I was a kid, I really did have to walk to school uphill both ways! that's old! heheh Even when you get to "old" ages, you realize that old is someone older than you.

My dearly departed uncle used to say, "I knew I would get old, I just didn't know it would happen this fast."
