10 Things we do when we get older

1.Repeat , repeat , repeat
We can be sitting around telling stories and repeat the same story at least twice just to make sure everyone heard it. Plus we think it's hilarious so why not tell it again? Note: It also helps when you are surrounded by other older persons as you won't feel as stupid because chance are they forgot it as soon as you told it.

2.  Saying WHAT alot because you were daydreaming or simply didn't hear what they were saying.  I find this especially true with our children  as I try and tune them out as much as possible with the constant nagging wants and demands.

3. Riding in the car with no radio on. We did this today actually and were at a light when we hear rap music. I looked at my husband he looked at me , we looked at our phones and then the radio , then back at ourselves again wondering where this music was coming from and thinking our kid messed with our ringers.We rolled down the window and heard the guy across the light from us with his music blasting.  Lol I never felt more old than that moment.

4. Timing our evening so we can be home in bed by 9. I did this the other night with friends, actually we all did. We looked at our watches and at 7:30 decided happy hour as over and we needed to get home to rest. So different from the twenties years.

5. Waking up at 5 or 6 with no alarm. Well since we are in bed at 9 our internal clocks say it's  5 am sunshine! Get the fuck up! Cockadoodledoo

6. Complaining about the TCU crowds. "Those damn kids acting like fools." No one wants to be around them that's why we're in bed by 9.

7. Taking more meds than Phillip Seymour Hoffman. ..yeah I went there.  When you find yourself popping vitamins ,supplements and prescription drugs, then it's time to own up to your age.

8.Nap time is a blessing.  Don't you find it funny when we were kids how we hated nap time but now that we're older it's a welcome blessing.

9. You say things like I can't do that doctors orders. Example  "I'd really love to pop a Viagra so I could tap that but Dr's orders are a no go cause it conflicts with by blood pressure meds." Lol

10. You say I can't eat that cause it will give me indigestion.
When you're eyeballing that pastrami or pepperoni or cucumbers but know if you eat it you're gonna pay later , then you pretty much are old now.;-)

You're comparing me to ISIS?

Today I had an interesting conversation at work about religion. I know I know never discuss religion, politics and your personal life at work or with anyone, but alas I couldn't help myself when I came under attack for my beliefs. Any of you that know me know I try not to judge others beliefs but not everyone is like me.

Well as I was at work today I overheard my co worker say that when we die  we go into a deep sleep till Jesus comes to get us. She says she's Christian and so I marvel at this because being raised Church of Christ I was never taught we sleep. I was taught from the King James bible that we when we die we are judged for our sins and either go to hell or enter the kingdom of heaven. So I said "what? We sleep? I was never told that." She then said well I was taught wrong . Excuse me? Ummm what? I was taught wrong? Who are you to judge me and say that?How do you know you were taught right? Exactly. ..you don't! We all have different beliefs and that's your belief so keep it to yourself please and not act like I'm the idiot going to hell.

She then proceeded to compare me to ISIS . WHAT?! She said because I didn't want to believe her version and said I was taught differently , like ISIS was taught wrong she said. I said yeah the difference between me and ISIS is they want to annihilate the entire planet that doesn't believe what they believe and are a bunch of pussies that hide behind masks and guns kinda like the KKK and I don't care in what you believe and masks never really looked good on me. Really!  I mean ISIS?

I then said everyone has their own belief and I have mine. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for me to open up the gates of heaven so that I may enter if I am deemed worthy. That's what I was taught and you were taught what you were taught and both of us could be wrong because man wrote the bible and could have altered it to what they thought as well so who knows.
The point is we all believe in something different and that's fine but do not condemn me for it because I don't with you.  Love thy neighbor and judge not unless yea be judged and he who is without sin cast the first stone. In other words..shut the hell up and keep your opinion to yourself and pray about it for me ok. Thanks.
