Getting old...

You know you're getting old because...

I've been feeling old the last few months. I've tried to deny that I am the big 4-0, but it is true. There are days that I feel may age, and these are a few indicators...

1. My oldest daughter began high school this fall. (?!)

2. I have aches and pains in my hips and back for no real reason.

3. I take lots of vitamins and several prescription medicines. (And I have one of those daily cases too...)

4. I'm getting more and more forgetful... What year was Mallory born? I told the clerk wrong at the pharmacy last week!

5. I liked music in junior high that is now called, "Classic Rock."  Which I think is wrong, by the way!

6. I have a niece that's married with three kids... Which means I am a Great Aunt! (My great aunts were old!!)

7. I have way too many gray hairs on my head...but I don't really wanna color them. I like the moistness and curl of my hair and don't want to dry them out!

8. I'm getting weird things like skin tags on my neck...?

9. I feel really rotten the next day if I don't get at least 7+ hours of sleep at night.

10. I have only one living grandparent left and he is nearing 100! Which makes me feel not so old at the same time! I really hope my Grandpa makes it to his 100th birthday, that will be a big party!

Writing prompt #5: You know you're getting old because...


Proverbs 16:31
Gray hair is a crown of splendor; it is attained in the way of righteousness.

Proverbs 20:29
The glory of young men is their strength, gray hair the splendor of the old.

Isaiah 46:4
Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.
2 Timothy 1:5
I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also.


  1. 3. some of what your feeling could be side affects of the prescriptions you mention

    6. this speaks more to them being younger or your being born later depending on how it happened. it is a neat, rare thing to get to know.

    7. gray hairs are natural highlights.

    8. what are up with those things?!

    9. knowing how much sleep you need is wise.

  2. Oh you are hilarious. Your list is much funnier than mine. I can relate to most of yours but I do color my hair (because I want some color besides gray).

  3. #3 Vitamin D helps with bone pain. I take it because of medicine side effects that cause bone pain and can tell a difference when I skip it for a few days.

    #7 I am vain and color mine. Otherwise, I would be nothing BUT gray, I fear.

    #8 Not yet, but now I have something new to look out for.
