I’m beginning to realize I’m not as young as I think I am.  Here are my…

Top 10 Signs That I’m Getting Older

1) I curse my teenage self for habitually cracking my knuckles. I swear that’s the reason my hands look like they belong to an octogenarian.

2) Wii games baffle me. Why can’t video games be as simple as the original Nintendo’s Tetris and The Legend of Zelda?

3) I ooh and aah over Volvo station wagons instead of shiny red sports cars with manual transmissions.

4) I can’t watch my wedding video because I no longer own a VCR.

5) I catch myself saying things like, “Because I said so” and “Close that door…we’re not paying to air condition the entire neighborhood.”

6) I have no idea what my natural hair color is. And I’m too scared to find out.

7) On the rare occasion I go to a bar, I go during Happy Hour. I’m back home and lounging in my jammies long before the bouncers start collecting cover charges.

8) My magazine subscriptions switched from Glamour and Cosmo to Parents and Real Simple.

9) I haven’t the slightest clue who Heidi Montag is or why her boobs make national news.

10) Instead of wishing I was a grown-up, I wonder when I became one.

  1. Great list! Top of mine would have to be that I know I must be getting old when I see someone driving a car and they look about 12 to me, or we go to a restaurant and the waiter or waitress looks like a child but in reality is at least in their late teens!

  2. HA! Great list!!!
    I had a moment the other day when I thought "man, I am getting old" I was referring to a new soldier in my hubby's unit as a "kid" b/c he looked so young to me…
    and we are recieving invites to weddings for "kids" that I used to babysit…yea, feeling old

  3. I love the "Because I said so one"! I do that more often than I would like but its just so much darn fun that I can't resist sometimes!

    Thanks for stopping by and following me! 🙂 I am off to read more and am following you now too.

  4. I think we all have days when we feel "old" compared to new trends around us, no matter how "old" we really are! Either way, this post made me smile. 🙂

    5. When I go to the beach I hide under the umbrella, because I'm affraid I'll get sun spots and wrinkles.

  6. I feel old sometimes too, and I'm only 21!! btw I'm going to assume my Cosmo post is what inspired you to feel old haha jk! I read Glamour AND Real Simple. What's up with that?
